postheadericon Part 5 - Digital at Last

During my second year with Scrapbooking.Com online magazine, and my second year retired from the classroom, we headed to Florida for 6 weeks and to check out a house from my Father-in-Law.

You can't POSSIBLY imagine all I hauled with me so I could keep up with my job. I was also representing the company on a scrapbooking cruise sponsored by my local scrapbook store by teaching some classes on the cruise. I had 13 pieces of luggage to take on board the ship. That was only PART of what I had hauled down from Michigan.

The second year going to Florida I was no longer with SB.C but still managed to fill a pick-up with scrapping supplies. Cruising the Internet I discovered some digital scrapbooking sites. By the time we left for home in the spring I was converted 100%. My sister-in-law and my niece relieved me of a lot of the product in the garage. I just couldn't part with my favorite papers, rubber stamps or bags. Then one new scrapper in the family had a baby and more was given away. Another was making a scrapbook for her grandfather who was not expected to live much longer and more was gone. Now I only have a couple of bags and a tackle box of supplies and some tools.

For the last few years I have been content to join challenges and attend chats on various websites, most often the Digital Scrapbook Place. My gallery there is so big I am actually embarrassed over it.

Read the whole blog, LL -- great job!! (I like that each entry fits on one page in my browser -- handy.)

Think I might be able to guess the surprise, too. Will eagerly await your announcement. ;-}

I know what your new chapter is *teehee* but I won't say anything :)

Why would you be embarrased about how big your gallery is? I think that's awesome! *hugs*

Forty Years of Scrapping

Long before it was popular, I was trying to decorate arrangements of photos and sentimental items. Here I want to share some of my personal history and more important, some ideas I have gleaned from more than 40 years of scrapping.
