Confessions of a scrapbooker

Those of you that know me know that I am a scrapper. As a scrapper, I have scoffed at the idea of blogging. Not because people who create scrapbooks are too good for blogging, that is not it at all. It is really because the idea that all of those hours and hours and years and years of cutting and taping and gluing and cropping have now become obsolete. This younger generation and their new fangled ideas about blogging have made all of my albums useless. It is a sad,sad day.

Now, let me clear up a couple of misconceptions you may have:

  1. Because I like to scrapbook, I must be creative. Now, this is surely the case for most scrappers. The ladies that let me sit around and scrapbook with them are real artists. They have a vision and can truly create masterpieces. I can only copy. If I don't copy someone else's layout, the result is not pretty. This is meant as an expanation for those of you who may expect a nice fancy blog. I am computer illiterate, and anything you find here will be very basic until I can learn a thing or two.

  2. Scrappers are perfectionists. Again, many are, but not me. Let me tell you I have been called many things in my life, but "perfectionist" has never been one of them. Consider me the queen of,"good enough"

  3. Those who scrap alot tend to get very fancy. They add a lot of fancy do dads and what nots to a page with only one picture. Not me. I am capable of this type of scrapping. And I will do it for some important pages, and can do it for certain projects. But in most cases I am a fan of function. If I can fit 4 or 5 pictures on a page to get an idea accross, I will do it. That same concept is sure to show itself in my blog.

Now, the point of this explanation is basically to warn you all not to expect anything fancy. I will try. That's it;)
