OK. I know. I'm not catholic, and neither are a lot of you who visit my blog.
Yesterday when I was scrapping at the store, two of the girls, Christine, and Marian where talking about the challenge they were about to emark on. They were going to give up Scrapbook shopping for Lent. A quick vision passed through my head of the mounds and mounds of stuff sitting in my room at home. Knowing that I really don't need anything I jumped all over this. I decided to join them. 40 days of no scrapbooking purchases. Can I do it? I think I can ... I think I can ... I think I can ... (I did manage to convince them that we should each have one day of reprive where we can make some purchases ... because while I'm away in Florida I might see something that will be too good to pass up ... but we can't use it until the challenge is over.)
This all sounds well and good, doesn't it? The funny thing is that we shopped like crazy to stock up on what we will need over the next month and a half. So ... where's the challenge in that?
