My name is Nancy, and I don't scrapbook. GASP! People are always surprised when I tell them that I don't scrapbook. I think they figure, she's crafty, she must scrapbook. I did used to, kind of. Mostly I bought the paper and cute embellishments, and did a page or two, but I've never even scrapped a single page for eiter one of my kids. I've been to a few scrapbook nights with girls in my ward, but I usually just sit and chat, or bring some other crafty project I'm working on. I started to get interested in scrapbooking again when my good friend Courtney began digital scrapbooking. Now this I could get into. I don't know why it should be different, but it is. I think I really like the idea of learning to use Photoshop, and being able to do cute invitations, business cards, notecards, etc.
So I finally sat down over the weekend, and really tried to get the hang of Photoshop. I must say, once you get a few of the basics down, it's really quite fun; and I couldn't sleep the other night because I had so many ideas running through my head of what I wanted to do with this new found hobby. But my husband needent worry, I've learned from all of my other interests not to go too crazy. So I guess I may join the ranks of scrapbookers (I think I prefer, digichick...I'm totally kidding here) but I'm not going to worry myself with feeling like I'm not "caught up." I'll just do a few pages here and there, and the next time anyone needs to make cute invitations, give me a call. Maybe I should plan a party, just so I could make cute invitations. Is that normal?
