      What is the longest you've gone without without scrapbooking, and why?

        When we moved from NV to CO, it was almost two months without scrapping. It was the first thing I packed up and the last thing I unpacked. It KILLED me. 🙂

        6 months. I came home from a scrapbook retreat and between calving, branding, haying and getting ready for two weddings in one summer, I didn't get back to it. The good thing…my bags were still packed for the next retreat I went to, 6months later! LOL!

        I haven't really stopped for more than 1 week at a time in the past 3 years because of design team requirements. I usually only take a break if I have no mojo or am gone on a trip where scrapping isn't possible. I have been known to scrap in my hotel bathroom while the kids are sleeping to make a deadline, LOL. I have slowed down and cut out some though — going from 8-12 projects per month in 2012 to 6-7 per month this year. It was too stressful.

        About a year. Before I joined Swirlydoos, after we moved from one tiny town to a different tiny town, all we did was work on that house. I didn't have a spot, all my stuff was in tubs. 🙁 Since we got set up here, I haven't really stopped.

          I think the longest I've gone is a week or two and usually only because we're away on vacation. Which speaking of that, Rae did you say you use to live in Las Vegas? I was wondering if they have any good scrap stores I could visit while I'm there since we'll be there for 7 days.

            Well, if you are renting a car, there is one in Henderson that is about 20 minutes from downtown on Horizon Ridge Parkway, called Scrappy-Do. It was only less than five minutes from my house when I lived there. It's pretty small, but they have, or used to have a lot of good stuff. I'm not sure if they are still carrying the good stuff. 🙂

              I seem to be on a scrappy break ever since the UDC. My mojo has decided to take a break.

              I am meeting up with some scrappy friends in about 2 1/2 weeks, hopefully that will get the juices flowing again

                I've had a few breaks that were about 6 weeks long due to surgeries. It took that long before I could sit up long enough to scrap, even though I still tried to scrap before then.

                I still have week or 2 long breaks due to vacation or just long days at work.

                A couple months or so from when I was laid off a couple years back… too depressed & too tired to scrap after job hunting. For the last year or so it's been either a scrap month or a mixed media month, but I'm always playing with something!

                  I took a break from scrapping for nearly 3 years prior to joining Swirlydoos last fall. I did some mixed-media and card making but I was just not inspired to scrap. The last year of my career was so incredibly stressful that I had only sporadic mojo. So happy to find this incredible place!

                    Thanks Rae. We're going to rent Harley for the day and drive down to Laughlin so maybe I can take my dh into stopping there on our way back.

                      Eek! No more than about a week or so in the past 5 years because of DT assignments. And when I did take a break, it was because of my boys being bo. 🙂 )

                        Yeah- that's not out of the way at all, so it's doable.

                        I think you deserve a ribbon or something – wow!
