My scrapbooking

I had a great experience a few weeks ago as the featured designer at Digi Night Out. It was fun to connect with local scrapbookers and my Mom even came with me. Meredith Cardall was a fabulous host and it was a well-planned and enjoyable event. If you are ever interested in attending, be sure to follow the Digi Night Out Facebook Page.

Because I was the featured designer, Meredith asked me to answer some questions about my personal, design, and creative life. I will share more of those details in some future posts, but I thought today would be a good day to share what I told that group about my scrapbooking habits and goals.

A few great resources

This post might seem a little off topic at first glance, but bear with me for a minute. For me, everything in life contributes to (or takes away from) my creativity.

Finally done with Flickr

I’ve been a longtime fan of Flickr. I was practically a Flickr evangelist for a time! I have written posts here at The Daily Digi several years ago telling others why they needed to be on Flickr.

There have been a lot of changes with Flickr over the years and I knew there would be more coming after they were sold to SmugMug. For some reason, this is the one that has broken me. I’m feeling done with Flickr.

I Found Myself

I opened up Adobe Photoshop Elements and a folder full of digital goodies and had a little art therapy time on my computer. Oh how I love digital mixed media creations! I just keep adding layer after layer and playing around with placement and opacity until I find something that I love. It’s very freeing!

The value of looking back at the past month

I had a great time at Digi Night Out this weekend and it was fun to be able to share some of my designs and ideas with those in attendance. Most of the scrappers there were not familiar with my monthly roundup so that gave me the opportunity to explain the concept of wrapping up the details of each month in roundup fashion. This is something I have done every single month since January of 2006 and it is my single most useful documenting tool.
