So, I've gotten myself addicted to digital scrapbooking. I suppose it was only a matter of time, because I've tried to do it many times, only the technology wasn't there. And my computer kept crashing and I've lost all my early efforts.
But then I found Shutterfly and used their generic template to scrapbook our honeymoon, and then I looked at the other albums other people had posted. They looked so cool that I started poking around for places to learn the craft, and I found Jessica Sprague. I've taken most of her classes and am slowly working through the latest batch.
My problem is that I've never been good at visual arts, so I'm reading her handouts and doing my assignments, trying to retrain my brain to grasp at least some rudimentary design concepts. And yes, that's my excuse for not writing as much as I should have today (but I did write.)
