My husband handed me an article in Macleans mag the other day. . “Here, read this, It is funny” And it was. “Their houses a mess, their wives MIA, some husbands wonder where it will all end” is the byline. Do you know there is an Australian husband who blogs about being a scrapbook widow? Too funny. I got to thinking about my own husband…hmm how does he feel about my scrapbooking. I can’t say I have ever heard him complain about my scrapbooking addiction but then again I can’t say I have ever heard him complain about much at all other than minus 46 windchills – and who doesn’t! I actually think he likes my scrapbooking because when I have a free evening and head into the scrapbook room it means he can veg on the couch with the ‘clicker’ and channel hop to his content. I won’t say anything to him about being lazy and sitting in front of the TV…how can I after spending four hours in front of my copious supplies? We are both content so why rock the boat?
As most of you know I work in a retail scrapbook store
Just Scrap It! so I have access to all the new stuff, most of
which I have purchased before it even gets to room temperature! I buy a lot of stuff…but that is part of the reason I work there. I hear so many women say at the till after a purchase – throw the receipt in the garbage, the less evidence the better…and no I don’t need a bag, if he sees me come into the house with a bag he will know, I will just incorporate it into my stuff right now. I laugh! but then it occurs to me that I have never heard my husband complain about how much I spend on scrapbooking supplies….perhaps that is because I am the frugal one in this household! or maybe because he has a liking for very expensive golf clubs…..hmmm maybe I am missing something far more subtle here.
Okay I digress…click here for the link to the Macleans article that quotes Allison Orthner saying “..some women spend more per week on scrapbook accessories then they do on groceries” ALLISON!! This is NOT helping our cause here. LOL
How does your husband feel about your scrapbooking?
