introducing scrappy hour. which is really just another of my silly names for irregular features here at the ol' blogorama. we'll see if this one sticks. i'll admit i am drawn to the combination of creativity & cocktails. so come on in, grab a drink & let's get scrappy ladies!
for the longest time, i used to dream-out-loud about having a whole long weekend in a secluded hotel, just me, kirk, nature, a pool, and BOOKS! i'm a bonafide bookworm, and kirk and i have amassed quite the library over the past 14 years or so...the problem is, i don't have a lot of time to read. when i finally settle in with my book, it's almost always nearly 1 or 2 am. not the best time to read the kind of novels i like - long, epic, historical novels.
a few years ago, we decided to actually do it. go away for a long weekend and with no tourist activities on the agenda, to a secluded place, and just read & relax. the bookworm break was born.
the first year, we went to the central california coast, 2 nights in pismo beach, 3 nights in cayucos. last year, we rented a cabin in idyllwild. this year, we stayed at an old resort in san marcos. i'd been there for a couple of work related conferences and while it isn't uber-posh, it's relaxed, the accommodations are perfect, and it's situated on a lake. perfect place to chill and read.
this mini-album is my 3rd mini ever. i'm really starting to like this format! i used a blank album by 7-Gypsies, papers by Basic Grey, Making Memories, and October Afternoon...plus a plethora of embellishments that have been sitting in my stash for way too long. Now they have a nice new home. I'm happy with the way it turned out, hope you enjoy, too:
let me know what you think by leaving a comment, and thanks for joining me for scrappy hour! ;)
