Think you’re addicted to scrapbooking? Take this short quiz and find out for sure:

You know you’re a scrapbooker when…

  1. …The words “archival quality” and “lignin-free” are part of your everyday vocabulary.
  2. …You take your daughter to get her hair cut, and you tell the stylist to “crop it to shoulder length.”
  3. …You know what you’re doing every Thursday night for the foreseeable future.
  4. …You are on first-name basis with the photo clerk at Ritz Camera.
  5. …Every pen in the house is acid-free.
  6. …You’re talking about adding on to the house, and you tell your husband you’d rather have a scrapbooking room than a bigger kitchen – and you’re serious!
  7. …Your monthly tab at your local scrapbook store exceeds your grocery bill.
  8. …You make so many furtive phone calls and emails to your Creative Memories/Stampin’ Up/Close to My Heart consultant, your husband refers to her as “your dealer.”
  9. …All you want for Christmas is a long-reach stapler.
  10. …You insist that your son round the corners on all his homework papers before he turns them in.
  11. …You had to buy a bigger purse to carry all your scrapping supplies around with you.
  12. …You needed to upgrade the memory on your hard drive to store all the digital scrapbooking elements you downloaded.
  13. …Your kids have the most beautiful book reports in town.

    LOVE the “dealer” observation. How about “when you’re in the Sporting goods store, you stroll down the fishing tackle aisle looking for cheap storage boxes, or any small item that could be “repurposed” and used as an embellishment! Had to laugh when I caught myself doing that just last night when my husband and kids were getting their hunting licenses! I pretty much do it in every store, but a sporting goods store???!!! I’m TRULY an addict!

    This is too funny! I fit too many numbers! LOL
    Gotta love it! However I have been a CTMH consultant for 10 years now so I guess that would make me the dealer!
    Happy Scrappin!
