Over at LPS this week, I've been posting the question of the day and scrappy QOTD. Here is my scrappy question today. I thought it was pretty funny! Where do you fit in?
"For my Friday finale, I decided to do something fun for our scrappy question! I just wanted to say that this thread is meant for entertainment purposes only. Any resemblance to an actual scrapper (real or imagined) was purely the invention of the thread writer!!
Many scrapbookers talk refer to their hobby as an addiction! I've taken the liberty of breaking this down into several common forms of addiction. Which category would you say you fit into?
The Hoarder - The hoarder loves her beautiful papers and embellishments soooo much, that she can't bear to even cut into some of her favorites. As a result, many of those items sit in her stash collecting dust until they are painfully out of style!
The Shopper - This scrapper is in love with the thrill of the chase!! She spends many hours stalking the sales in retail stores and on the internet, looking for a great deal or hard to find item. Often, she feels let down after her conquest. She must continue to search in order to feel any real pleasure! She has been known to raid the family "emergency" fund to get her next fix. Sadly, this obsession takes away her valuable scrapping time!
The Perfectionist - The perfectionist will spend hours on one page, to make sure every single detail is just right! She will sometimes get stuck on a page, and will be unable to move on until she can make it perfect. She has been known to throw an entire layout in the trash because it was not up to her extreme expectations!
The Self-Critic - This scrapper shares much in common with the perfectionist. She is her own worst enemy! This scrapper constantly compares her work to other layouts she sees, where she always falls short in her opinion. Never satisfied with her work, scrapping brings her very little joy.
The Manic Scrapper - When she gets on a roll - WATCH OUT! She will stay up all night working on a project if her creative juices are flowing! After an attack, her room is a disaster with paper and embellishments scattered around in complete disarray! This scrapper sometimes feels sad or depressed if her mojo is gone! She will wait days for another surge of inspiration.
The Advanced Scrap-aholic - There is little hope for this scrapper! Her disease has progressed so far that she seldom thinks of anything but scrapping. Her family is neglected, the house dirty, and her appearance is disheveled. She will go to any length for the next layout!"
