Digital Scrapbooking Day Tomorrow!

Well, it figures that I just get this blog thing started and then get really sick! But, I am going to be feeling better tomorrow no matter what because it is Digital Scrapbooking Day! There will be lots of activities at the digital scrapbooking sites and my FAVORITE store ScrapMatters will have everything 30% off tomorrow (my wallet just cringed!) - plus lots of the designers are going to be giving away fun freebies! If you want to check out all the shops that will be having sales you can do that at the Digital Scrapbooking Day Headquarters. So that is what I am going to be doing tomorrow and will come back and show off some of my work (cause I know you all want to see right?). I have also applied to be on a couple of Creative Teams for the designers that I LOVE and hope to hear back from one of them soon - so keep your fingers crossed for me!

My Two Current Obsessions

So in my inaugural post I mentioned that I have a couple of hobbies... er obsessions? Those who know me will confirm that I do have a *slightly* obsessive personality and planning for our upcoming Disney Trip (henceforth known as Princess Palooza) is one of them. I spend probably a little too much time on a couple of Disney planning sites and the trip is taking on a life of its own … there are now spreadsheets involved (no mocking allowed!). It is finally starting to taper off a bit as the itinerary is mostly set, plane tickets purchased and all of the dining reservations have been made. I am sure that when I begin putting together the daily touring plans in January it will get crazy again! Prince Charming is a saint and just smiles and nods whenever I start talking in Disney acronyms.

My other current obsession is Digital Scrapbooking. I have been involved in scrapbooking for about 10 years now, and have lots of photo albums to show for it, but I only recently have discovered the HUGE world of digital scrapbooking. I had done a few digital books in the past year but I finally decided that the girls albums were going to be digital - and it has now become a full blown obsession! My paper supplies have been gathering dust (literally) and my collection of digital supplies has been growing exponentially – thanks mostly in part to my FAVORITE store/ digi community ScrapMatters. They have so many fun challenges to participate in, beautiful products and the nicest scrappers I have ever met! I have a little slideshow of my recent digital scrapbook pages over on the right and I am sure that it will be updated regularly as I fit in as much scrapping time as I can. Now all I need is a bigger hard drive to store it on …

Welcome to the Castle

... although it would probably be more aptly described as a three ring circus. I have stayed away from blogging for a while now because I didn't think that I could keep it up (that remains to be seen) and because I didn't think that I had anything worthwhile to contribute to the "bloggesphere". Well, I'm still not sure that I do but I am jumping in anyway. This will likely end up being a spot for me to ramble about the family and my latest obsessions (Disney and digital scrapbooking) but I hope that you join me for the ride!
