This morning I tell my son and his friends (16 year old ds)...

I say - "Just FYI mom is celebrating a holiday today",
He asks, "Wait - what holiday is it?"
His friend - "Wait it's not Mother's Day Right?"
Me, "no, but it is a national holiday...."
Ds 16 - "Omg it's National scrapbook day!"
My eyes pop out of my head and I ask - "How did you know that?"
Him - " Because what other holiday would you make such a big deal about?"

Later after helping dd 10 clean her closet and entire room - spring cleaning...I tell her I have homework to do and that I want to scrap for NSD.
DD10 - "for what?"
Me- "NSD - National scrapbooking day"
Her- "Um no it's not - you made that up so you could scrapbook!"

SO I directed her to twopeas the many blogs celebrating - but she isn't convinced!

I think these conversations will go in PL!

Oh those convos are hilarious!!

My father-in-law asked hubby if we were going camping this weekend. Hubby said he'd like to, but apparently it was "National Scrapbooking Day" and I had plans. His dad cracked up at him! LOL

I asked dh to take ds to a class at a local museum, so I could stay home and scrapbook since it was NSD and off they went, but I called in him from the road because I ran out to get ds a free comic book for National Comic book. Dh says, " You can't do that its NSD and you are suppose to be scrapping." I told him ds really wanted a free comic book and it turned out they gave me 4 instead of 1! That was my only break besides letting out the dog. I scrapped a wonderful day away at home for the first time in year. I had plans to scrap with a group, but I decided to distance was just too far and I stayed in my room. I had s much fun scrapping by myself! Happy NSD everyone!

Those are absolutely hilarious! My DS 9 is still at that age where all the supplies are really cool and wants to play with them! He's "helping!"

Cute! My kids were excited.

They knew so long as they didn't try and burn the house down I'd leave them alone all day.
