My daughter and I spent almost all day scrapbooking. It was chilly and rainy, and we were both glad we didn't have anywhere we needed to go today. We both got quite a few layouts done today. And I'll be sharing mine as responses to this discussion come in. I love scrapbooking or reading a good book on a rainy day. What do you do when there is nowhere you have to go and it's rainy and or chilly outside? Please share any pics of crafts or scrapbooking, if that's what you do on a rainy day.

I found some interesting craft stuff to make cards, so I'm going to start working on that, but I really don't have anyway to upload them for ya after I do them. so far, they still sit in the bag

I love making cards also. I made my own personalized Christmas cards this past Christmas, and I do thank you cards and birthday. Guess I need to get started on Easter cards soon. My daughter made a set of thank you cards for my sister for Christmas. Each one was unique and different, it was a great gift. So, get that bag and start crafting cards lol.

I wish I could think of a card for sympathy - I need a couple, one for me and one for the roomie, she had a friend lose his mom and my OB/Gyn lost his dad - I know that sounds strange, but I saw him outside of work because his dad lived where my mom does.

Haven't really had the need to make a sympathy card. But maybe something simple, toward the elegant side, with just a "extending my sympathy" on the front, and you might get an idea for the inside from the resources section at scrapbook.com, they have titles, poems and quotes for almost all subjects.

On a rainy day, if I choose to stay at home.. I watch tv/dvds, sleep, use the computer, read, or do homework. If I choose not to stay home, I go to the mall and eat out with friends. But honestly, I prefer staying at home.

I agree with you on that, I prefer just staying home on rainy days. I also don't care for they way a lot of people drive in wet weather, they continue to drive as if it were dry conditions.

Hello palonghorn! Wow, scrapbooking is a good bonding between you and your daughter. What I did is just face the computer and look for some things useful and read some blogs and articles. But most of the time, I'll be here and rocking mylot..hehehe..

She and I have a great time scrapbooking together. One of her friends came over this afternoon and joined us to scrapbook. It was raining most of the day, and then turned to sleet and snow this evening.

If I can help it, I stay indoors and do things around the house. I like to watch the rain and listen to it, but I prefer not to be out in it unless I have to be, especially if it is a cold rain. I don't mind it so bad during the summer months when it is warmer outside.

I don't mind rainy days in the summer either, it's just chilly, rainy weather that I don't really care for.

Well on a rainy day i either like to go out get wet in rain and go for a tea and some snacks to the near by center. or just stay at home cosy prepare some hot coffee with some fries or wedges or just anything that i love to eat and read a book sitting by the window pane and watching the water running down the pain, watch those wet trees swaying in wind and just keep staring at the clouds for a long time .. and if i could wish more then just sit in my room near the windo listening to the rush of rains with the love of my life talking and holding hands for hours ..ohh its all just so much romantic isnt it?

It is nice to spend a rainy day with a loved one, just doing nothing. Thanks for sharing, and it is a very nice idea.

I wish I had the excuse of a rainy day to do scrapbooking. It hardly ever rains in Phoenix. Good job on getting so much done! As I look around the studio, I think that I am going to have to do a little cleaning/organizing before I start my next project.

Well I can see how you don't have that excuse.......how about 'a really hot, sunny, dry day?' lol I normally try to straighten my work area after I finish a layout, before starting the next one.

On rainy days I like to curl up and relax. The rain can make me sleepy and if it's cod and rainy I just want to stay wrapped up in a blanket watching movies or napping. I am always making stuff or supervising my students making stuff so unless I am under a deadline I might give in to the urge to be lazy.

That's a great way to spend a cold rainy day. Have had plenty of those kind of days in the past 4 years.

Normally we try to just hang out at home and do yard work. Well, maybe not yard work actually ha ha. Today was very rainy. We did brave it long enough to go shopping a little and out to eat. But for most of the day we have been on the internet, checking emails, playing the Wii, watching movies, and watching Dog the Bounty Hunter marathon on TV.
