try-its and scrapbooking

By Tara Zandra | May 30, 2007

It seems to be working to have my craft table in the dining room. I have completed several pages since moving it in here. I did replenish my picture supply so I have enough for a little while. I’ve completely finished all of Tabitha’s 8th birthday stuff. It came to a total of 12 pages. I think I’ll work on Daisy’s 2nd birthday next, maybe 2 pages, maybe 4, not sure. My absolute favorite picture of her though and she has horrendous red eyes. It’s not even red eye, it’s the kind of silver eyes pets get so my red eye remover program didn’t work. I got two copies of the pic and am going to use a red eye remover pen and cross my fingers. In a group shot from Tabitha’s party, out of 15 kids, Daisy is the only one with red eyes. She’s just really sensitive for whatever reason.

Good news to me, I found a local store that carries the full line of Girl Scout scrapbooking stuff from K&Co. I’ve only seen Boy Scouts or generic scouting stuff before so I’m quite pleased to finally find a supplier for actual Girl Scout and Brownies stuff. I’ve never been to this store so it will be fun to see a new store and get tons of stuff for scrapping all the Girl Scout pics I’ve taken this year. I plan to go sometime in the next week or so.

Lastly, speaking of Girl Scouts, Tabitha did her last activity of making a marionette and that makes 5 Try-Its in a week. We talked about it a bit on a walk Monday evening and decided she won’t work on any Try-Its this summer. We want to make sure she has some to work on in the fall with her troop and on her own. At the rate she’s going, she’d run out of them! She does have a couple summer meetings where they will earn a try-it so she still has Girl Scout activities, she just won’t do them on her own. There’s one that I think would be fun to do with the troop, assuming other girls didn’t earn it on their own. So all told, in Tabitha first year of Brownies (which only started in January) she earned 21 Try-Its; not bad for my little over-acheiver :)

    21, that’s a lot! WTG, Tabitha! Gillian was in from Sept.-June last year and I think she might have gotten 10. We’ll see what happens when she starts up again next fall.
