Default You know you're a scrapbooker when . . .

. . . a tropical storm is coming your way and your first worry is losing power so you can't create your Shadowbox layout and won't be able to upload and you'll lose your 50% discount.

Are there any exceptions for Acts of God?

Scrap quickly, Cheryl!
Okay, all jokes aside, I hope you're safe and your electricity doesn't shut off. It's way too hot and humid right now to lose it no matter what, especially when scrapping for these challenges!

Hahaha - I made hubby come home from camping early so I wouldn't miss out on the first two days...

But - I think as long as you do them all by the final deadline you're good, even if you miss the 48 hours on each for the freebie

Oh, you know I can go fast! LOL



And lordy, the heat and humidity, please spare me from that. When we lost power in the fall with Hurricane Sally, UGH. So miserable.

Oh my gosh! You're right! I suppose I can bear losing one or two freebies as long as I get to keep my discount. Ha! It's really been awesome to get back into creating daily again.

We have a generator, and we can run a small window unit (what we did last year after Hurricane Sally) alternating with the refrigerator and a lamp or two. I didn't try to use my computer because even though we have a surge protector, I'm still nervous about power spikes that could damage my computer. I might have to bite the bullet and scrap on my iPad. I'm so used to scrapping at my desktop that I think it might be an exercise in frustration.

Iím so used to scrapping on my computer that when hubby got me a new one because mine was running slow and PSE kept crashing, I still used my old computer and he has the new one. I couldnít even imagine scrapping on an iPad.

So this has got me thinking. Can I buy a generator and write it off as a business expense so that I can keep working even when the power goes out? It seems legitimate to me and I really want a generator and I really would work if the power was out because my office is in the basement which is the safest place to be during bad weather in Indiana.

Stay safe, Cheryl.

That's so funny! I know when I've gotten new computers, just getting used to the new tech is stressful. If I just jump in and try it, I'm sure I'll be fine on the iPad. I just don't like that most everything I've read, you don't have much in the way of shadow styles, and I'm addicted to mine.

Thanks so much! And I think it should count as a business expense. You are buying it so that you can continue working. Check with your tax preparer!

I always charge up my laptop before a storm just in case... but luckily we do have a generator (electrician hubby set it up so most of the house runs on it... I only lose my AC, dryer, stove and pool pump... last storm we did discover we cannot use instant pot and toaster oven at the same time...lol)

I totally think you could write it off!! Especially if you loose power often!!

Stay safe Cheryl!

We had a big storm last week and our power was out was 4 hours. Went out just before dinner. Thankfully I had been to the deli earlier in the day, so ham sandwiches on fresh buns with veggies for dinner it was.

Yup, that is when you know you are a scrapbooker!!!


I think as long as you complete all 31 layouts, you are eligible for the coupon. You stay safe!! We've had some nasty storms blowing through here the past few days, some that even took our power out as well!!!

Stay safe. I would be worried too...I don't care about TV or having the lights but my computer better not die on me. LOL I took it with me on our long road trip and hubby questioned me...I was like we might have some down time and I can scrap but at least I have it to download pics...I used it ONCE maybe twice. LOL There is ZERO downtime on vacations with hubby. He is like a cruise director with a fancy itinerary.

Looks like the storm took a jog to the east, so that's good for us, but bad for the neighboring counties. We should only experience rain now.

Looks like the storm is going to the east of us. We should only get rain later today. whew

I would love a generator for our entire home. Will your generator run a window unit and a refrigerator at the same time, along with lights and fans?

Yes, we have stuff for sandwiches along with other hurricane food stuffs. If we do lose power and the storm has passed, Jay can always cook on his Blackstone grill.

Ha! Great gifs!

Someone earlier in the thread reminded me that as long as I do all 31 layouts, I'll be good for the discount code.

Going to the east of us! Whew! Hopefully we'll just have rain and won't lose power.

That's funny about your hubby . . . most of the time it's the women who plan vacations. I would have to make sure he put me having computer time on the itinerary!

Yes ours will. I just would have to make sure I'm not using things that draw lots of power at the same time (blow dryer, microwave, ip) We have an emergency air conditioner in the shed just in case. The generator gets hooked right in to my electric panel, I just need to turn off all the 2pole breakers (Central AC, Dryer and stove) we choose not to run the pool unless we absolutely need too.
