Hello, my name is Laurel...

(circa 1980ish)

and I'm a not so recovering addict of:

paper
ribbon
stamps
any publication from Stampington
cookbooks
odd bits and pieces
art supplies
books
magazines
reading blogs
Flickr
paper (I know I already said that but it bears repeating along with cookbooks and stamps)


I think I'm beyond intervention.


I just had to get that off my chest. Thank you.

Love the picture! I'm glad you feel comfortable enough with us to come out with your addiction. I see no reason to stage an intervention, you seem to be surviving quite well. ;o)

awe-some photo!

I've heard an intervention starts by gathering together with your friends and loved ones.....wait we do that to scrap...darn it...this intervention thing doesn't work when we all have the same addiction! :)

This made me laugh & laugh. I think Robin over at Bird Tweets has a 10 step blog-recovery program, but wait - maybe it's a 10-step program to just admit we can't get enough! I will have to track it down!

Loved this! And can so relate.

Love the picture! I hope you will post more photos from "back in the day"!

As for the addiction, I think this calls for another scrapping fest.
YOU NEED THE SUPPORT OF ENABLERS LIKE US TO HELP YOU! :)

Just a side note. A couple of you mention a 10 step program, but I think it would take at least 20 steps and even that is iffy. I say embrace our frailties. ;-)

Too too funny Laurel. I admit so am I and to numerous other things. Lord help us.
I love your photo. How old and what grade??? So cute.

mmm maybe we should have a group for this - like CPAA - Craft and Paper Addictions Anonymous LOL
What do you think ;-p
