Saturday Snippets

I love blog challenges, but posting daily for most of the last year has been equal parts fulfilling and exhausting. I've promised Mom we will finish our Depression Cookies follow-up this year. It will take focus and all my extra creative juices.

My goal is to post on the following schedule this summer to see how it goes:

Monday--Open Theme
Wednesday--Writing Theme / ROW80 Updates
Friday--Fun Facts Friday
Sunday -- ROW80 Updates

Funny, even as I typed this, I found myself hesitating. Since May of last year, I have posted 369 times. But the first step to beating an addiction is admitting it, right? I think I just might be addicted to posting. 

I digress... during Blogathon, I'm going to have snippets of interesting things I've seen or read on Saturdays.

Today's Saturday Snippets

National Scrapbooking Day

Today is National Scrapbooking day. I love these odd "holidays" created by some wonderful committee of creative types. Or at least that's how I imagine it. I'd love to come up with a few special days myself. Possible post idea? I think so.

I tried scrapbooking with my first baby, but quickly lost momentum. It's a lot of work. Yet, I love seeing the story created by a scrapbooked page. Then again, I'm addicted to storytelling.

One of these days, when I discover the secret of creating more time, I might try scrapbooking again.

Are you a scrapbooker? What's your favorite part?

Grammar Funny

Have a wonderful Saturday and Cinco de Mayo!

I like the grammar reference! I'm not a scrapbooker. I prefer to tell my stories through my blog. The occasional blogathon is fun; a year long marathon? Not for me.

Hi, Daisy. Thanks for stopping by. I loved the grammar cartoon... it says so much!

I agree about telling stories through the blogs. Actually, it's a scrapbooking of words. ;-)

I have found regular blogging (except for Blogathon, I take the week-ends off unless I'm BURSTING with something to say) is manageable with themes for my days. Before I came up with my theme days, I was TOTALLY TUCKERED!!! Just the emotional push to say something even remotely worthwhile left me ready for bed! ;-D

So now I post my menus on Monday, my children link-up on Tuesday, marriage stuff on Wednesday, my Thankful Thursday post (I love these best of all as it gets my mind on my BLESSINGS) and Fridays I post something spiritual-new or a repost from the past.

Yep, grammar really makes a difference! My favorite is: It's time to eat Grandma. vs It's time to eat, Grandma! ;-D

Love the grammar quote! I have scrapbooked a few pages and would love to do more. They will be precious to look back on.

Kate, Last year I did tub-full Tuesdays. I should bring those back. It's such a nice exercise to remember what I am thankful for. Thanks for the reminder.

Beth, Me, too. One of these days...

I saw a picture of a t-shirt on FB the other day. It said:

"That's what." --She

Completely caught me off guard and made me laugh in pure grammar enjoyment.

I'm not a scrapbooker either. But it's fun to see what people can come up with.

Jaleh, I appreciate things like that, too. :-)
