A very much anticipated box from 2peas arrived at my house today. . .loaded with paper, washi tape, alphas and other goodies and I am not allowing myself to open it until I get my scrappy stuff put away from the crop I attended 3 weeks ago!!! Yes, it is all still sitting in my lr/dr. My scrapbook storage is in my dr so it's not that far away but I've been having trouble finding the time to get it back in its home. So this Saturday my goal is to put my crop supplies away and maybe by Saturday night I will be "allowed" to open my new box of goodies!

LOL! I'm kind of doing the same thing. I'm in the middle of moving re-designing my scrapbook area and have decided I don't need to buy a Cameo until it is done. Because really, it should have been done by now. I've just been dragging my feet on it.

That is some will power! Maybe you can just "pet" the paper meanwhile?

Good for you, wish I had that kind of willpower. I just put away a big stack of packages because I would open the stuff as soon as I got it, but couldn't find the time to put any of it away. your method would probably have worked better than mine did

I'm hoping to get my scrap space unpacked before my box of happy arrives soon! I can't say that I have the strength to refrain from opening it like you do...

Not even open the box I could make myself wait to use it but I would need to open it right away.

Impressive willpower!!

That is some willpower! I usually find that when I get home from a crop I either get right back to it or put it down for a few weeks!

I would pet the box too.

Me neither!! I usually get my scrapping stuff delivered to my work and I have the box open on the bus home half the time

That is something I would do. But I wouldn't be able to wait until Saturday to clean up! lol I would have my stuff put away by the evening, or stay up till the wee hours of the morning to get to those goodies.

I would have it open the minute I got home!!

If I made my self wait to play with it until after I cleaned or put stuff away, it would be done in no time

Scrappy goodies are a great motivator.

I can't get in the front door without having tried to rip that package open!
Same for any other scrappy goodness that gets delivered here.

There's no way I could have waited. I would've have ripped that box open to make sure everything I ordered was there and intact.

Wow, that is some serious willpower. I'd have to open it just to, you know, make sure the order was correct and all. . .oh yeah, that's the story, timely opening to double check and make sure there's no out of stock. . .
