    The perfect day would begin with having a full 8 hours of sleep, followed by feeding and playing with a smiling baby, no taxi-ing anyone around. It would end with couple time and a good bar of chocolate and a bowl of ice cream.

    OK – it’s a glorious sunny day, w weather pleasant so I can have the windows open … everybody ELSE can sleep in as I like rising early with the birds for checking blogs … then pulling out stamp supplies. LOL – and THEN I can enjoy time well spent w friends and family! Aren’t weekends too short?!

    My perfect day would be alone scrapping all I want and maybe some shopping too. Or a day with my family. Both of those are perfect days for me.

    With two college students and two working parents, it is hard to get us all together. A perfect day would be for all of us to be under the same roof, laughing and visiting and sharing.

    A perfect day for me would be a gorgeous day on the beach with friends and family. I didn’t really get to do that this year, so I can’t wait for next summer already!

  8. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    My perfect day would be spent at the beach with my husband and the kids. I love the salty air and the relaxation. Then, when we head home, the kids will be exhausted and I can get some uniterupted scrap time!

    my perfect day would be spent with my son doing something we both love but don’t get to do often…maybe shopping and a movie, just the 2 of us:)

    I know this maybe weird but it would be the day that I am realizing,not taking it for granted how rich my life is. That I am content with the me in me, not questioning my talents, creativity, my size and mental health. Being blessed for all my gifts I have and have to share.
    Thanks for provoking the thoughts….too kind.

    Oh – what a fun class! A perfect day for me would be one where I woke up in no pain and had no pain for the entire day. That may sound pretty simple, but I’ve been in neurological pain 24/7 for over 5 years… Thank you for this opportunity.

    Thanks as always for the great information.

    sounds like an awesome class, a perfect day for me would be my hubby taking the kids for an outing and leaving me home alone to scrap.

    my definition of perfect day is when everything good comes to you and having to spend a quality time with the family at our cosy home.

  23. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    Ahhhhh the perfect day…..So many thoughts come to mind, but I suppose if I could be selfish, a perfect day would be time alone. (Every day is perfect and full of family). Cool enough to have all of the windows in my house open and the sun still shining brightly. The radio playing, a glass of ice tea, a good book and of course lots of time to scrap!
    The class sounds like a lot of fun. Thanks for the chance.

  24. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    I don’t think 24 hours would be enough! It would be sunny weather. Spending quality time with DH and DS. Having real Italian ice cream. And at the end of the day there’ll be some scrapping too!

  25. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    my perfect day is my little family on vacation

  26. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    A perfect day would be time with my two kids especially since one is now 1700 miles away! The day would end with some scrapping time for me to capture the memories.

    a perfect day for me is any day i spend with my family, especially my two beautiful granddaughters. i am old enough now to know that dreams don’t always come true, but keep dreaming anyway, and count each day as a gift no matter what the circumstances are. if i could pick one special day it would be with my husband, children and grandchildren at the beach on a gorgeous day being silly and playing in the sand and watching the sunset! Then eating or having a barbeque, ice cream for dessert, and falling asleep with my grandkids knowing how special life is!!!

    The perfect day for me would just consist of a quiet time spent with my family with no phones, no interruptions, preferably on a nice beach like Hawaii!!

    A perfect day is fresh coffee in hand and a fresh scrapbook surface to work on. I would spend all day scrapping my pictures of the time we lived in Hong Kong into an album and also several mini albums. I have loads of papers and embellishments and want undisturbed time to devote to it. Lunch will appear, dinner will appear, and after I’ve done things to my satisfaction I will have a massage and a perfect night’s sleep knowing those memories are where they belong.

  33. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    Waking up pain free…..breakfast with my sweet husband…a trip to the thrift store where I find the perfect things I’ve been looking for…..a stop at my LSS only to find some brand new amazing Prima flowers then home to spend the rest of the day making pretty things. A video and dinner with DH later and what a day I’ve had!

  34. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    A perfect day for me would start with a pedicure in the morning, some shopping, lunch, visiting my favorite scrapbooking and book store – then home to scrapbook without any interruptions while my Mama Mia soundtrack is playing and I would end the day with a bubble bath, a good book, candles and a glass of wine!!

    What a wonderful day this would be!! :-)

  35. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    My perfect day, would be to wake up on a tropical island, where the sun is shinning, open the doors onto a lovely deck overlooking the ocean, spend the day with the kids on the beach, and sipping cocktail watching the sun set with my darling husband

  36. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    My perfect day would be a morning where I didn’t have to get up at any particular time (even though it would be early). It would be a sunny day so I could eat breakfast outside in the garden then play in the dirt for a little while planting/weeding. Later in the day would be spent with family and friends. I’m also a bit of a night owl sometimes & that’s my favorite time to scrapbook & get creative so that would be a perfect finish to a great day

    My perfect Day? I guess a day with my Hubby & sons in Cornwall, warm & sunny, a walk accross the causeway to St Michaels mount for morning coffee & clotted cream scones. Then an afternoon building sandcastles & paddling in the sea on Marazion beach, followed by an evening at the Minnack theatre with dinner in a hamper. Lots of photo opportunites to scrap this memorable day!

  38. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    My perfect day would be a day with my crafting friends away in a cabin in the mountains. We would have a beautiful view of the mountains from our huge crafting table. We could craft anything we wanted and each one of us can do a mini-workshop.

    We would take breaks for meals, ice cream sundaes, relaxing, swimming, or whatever the day may bring!

    My perfect day would start with a bike ride on the boardwalk by the beach with my husband followed by a few hours of relaxing on the beach. The evening would consist of dinner out and a walk along the beach.

  41. Elizabeth M.
    Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    The perfect day always includes my family but it has to have some alone time for me too. I would spend the morning scrapbooking all by myself and relaxing and then I would have lunch with kids and hubby and we’d spend the afternoon doing something together followed by dinner. Then I would go back to scrapbooking all by myself for a little while before bed.

    My most recent perfect day, was the celebration of my retirement after nearly 30yrs of teaching. I gathered together with friends, colleagues & family for a 3hr cruise around the Lake. We shared memories, laughter & a lot of love.The only problem was, the weather was rainy & windy ……… but no-one seemed to care!.

  43. Erika M
    Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    The perfect day would be warm but not too hot. The sun would be shining. My husband and daughter and I would all be together on the lake and we would be fishing. We’d catch lots of fish and have a huge bonfire where we’d eat the fish that we caught.

    My perfect day would be a lovely, warm sunny one, spent with my dh and kids. We’d have no particular place to go or thing to do. We’d definitely have a wonderful lunch in a restaurant, preferably sitting in a shady spot with a gorgeous view!

  45. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    My perfect day would start after noon, not at 6 am. It could finish by 6 am… I would have time to do all the things I planned to do on the previous day. It would also have much more than just 24 hours. I guess 50 would be a good number. I would have time to play with my two kids, cook for then, clean up the house, go to a few stores and buy something, scrap at least one page, read all the blogs I like, watch my beloved TV series, read a little and definitly would finish with a very nice dinner on Nippon, a japanese restaurant wich is my favorite one!!!

  46. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    My perfect day would start out with the kids getting themselves ready for the day without any help from me, leaving me time to surf the net while eating bacon and eggs cooked by my cooking-impaired husband. I would then spend the rest of the day in my scrap room, being interrupted only when someone wanted to know if I needed more chocolate. It would end with my cooking-impaired husband cooking and cleaning up afterwards, and rubbing my feet while snuggling up for grown up time!

    Oh, this class looks awesome! I’d love to win a spot in it! My perfect day would be spent alone (okay, maybe with my dog too) in a cabin in the woods during autumn. After hiking in the woods, I’d relax by the roaring fire and scrapbook the night away!

    Honestly, I’ve already lived my perfect day. I got married just over 2 years ago, and it was my best day ever. All day long, I remember being very aware of the fact that I’d never been as happy as I was at that moment. Awesome!

    That said, my perfect regular day would involve a beach and a book!

    Perfect Day?? I have had two in my lifetime ~ 28 Dec 81, the day my beautiful daughter was born, and 21 Jun 07, the day God wed me to the man He chose for me after 20 years of single parenthood! Other than that, a perfect day is any day that I can spend creating cards for family, Chemo Angels, Cards for Heroes. Have never scrapped but am certain I can learn!

  54. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    a perfect day for me is baking for my hubby and family who love it even though I am losing my sight and hearing. then to relax by stamping/scrapping afterwards knowing that the rewards of baking and the smells are drifting thru the house. everyone to enjoy. what a glorious day for me.

    Oh, how I’d love to win!!!

    Perfect day:
    Sunlight, water, occasional soft breezes. The sound of lapping or babbling water, whether lake, ocean, or brook. Perfect music playing (depends on the mood and the site), dogs quiet, on the deck at my feet. Add art and/or books, and unlimited, glorious Time (yes, with a capital T :)). Ahhhh. :)

    Being a Mum who works full time, the perfect day would be a full day with my 20 month old and 6 year old, doing whatever they wanted (which could involve a park and a picnic), enjoying the Spring weather, and not having to think about all the household chores, grocery shopping, meal planning and work I need to catch up on at the same time. Just time to completely focus on them, my husband and me creating fun together!

    My perfect day:

    Nice sunny day in the park. Spending it with the family. Getting lots of photos of the kids on the playground, bringing lunch. Maybe through in a fishing pole of two and let the kids enjoy that. Brining the boat out for a ride. Hit the beach make a sand castle of two.

    My perfect day would be spent with my family. DH and I would do something fun with the kiddoes-neither one of them would cry,whine, or get in trouble the whole time. After our fun day, we would come home and both the kids would take long naps and DH would watch football while I scrapped. In the evening, the kiddies would eat dinner early and then go to bed, without me having to fight with the oldest about brushing his teeth. DH and I would then have a romantic dinner all by ourselves.

    I know…a girl can dream, though,right?

    My perfect day is to wake up next to my 3 year-old little girl. We’d go swimming (her favorite thing) and play outside for a while to get some good photos. Then in the evening we’d have family movie time and I’d sit and scrap the day’s photos (while pretending to watch the movie).

    A day with my husband where we would “junk and thrift and flea market” all day. No set plans just a lot of one dollar bills and a lot of used stuff.

    A perfect day would be a day that the 3 of us can spend together doing what we all want to do uninterrupted by the demands of every day life. With a husband owning a business, me working for an attorney and our 13 year old in school and sports, it is rare for us to have time together for vacations, let alone a single day. So a perfect day would be without cell phones, without sports practices and games, without working and calls from the business or the boss!

    Sounds like a perfect day to me.
    Steph

  79. Posted 6 years, 2 months ago | Permalink

    That would have to be a full nights sleep followed by a kid free date night with my delicious bloke…on an island resort…in the tropics….with a foot massage every half hour…….
