Scrapbooking Digitally

My iMac is the center of my workday and, frequently, my snatches of creative personal time as well. I have a passion for digital scrapbooking.

Years ago I made efforts to create a traditional scrapbook or two. However, I frequently found myself frustrated. After assembling all the photographs I planned to use (always using a copy and leaving the original unharmed by scissors, glue, or paste), my papers, and tools, and on my dinning room table—traditional scrapbooking takes a lot of layout space—it was not unusual for me to learn that my stockpile did not contain enough of the items I wanted to use. At the time, the nearest store for me to purchase supplies was at least three-quarters of an hour drive one way. The hobby can be very expensive, particular if you want to reproduce your work to distribute to more than one individual!

Then I discovered digital scrapbooking! Now my workspace is neat and takes up very little space. No cluttering the dinning room table—unpacking from storage and putting everything back in storage when my allotted time frame was complete.

I’m pleased to be presenting a session on Digital Scrapbooking at the FGS Conference in Springfield, Illinois, on Saturday, September 10th.

Grids & Grommets

Some women can’t resist a new pair of shoes… Not me, but I must admit that I have a thing for purses and totes (as well as jackets and blazers).

Friday I had the opportunity to spend the day at Sew Memorable (4055 Highway 53 East, Dawsonville, Georgia) constructing a tote-able “Grids & Grommets” bag. Traveling conditions due to the recent winter snow and freeze in North Georgia held the class size down to just two of us–I really enjoyed Barbara’s company.

Jeanne Rish, owner of the quilt shop, gave us excellent advise and guided us as needed.

The shop is chuck-a-block full of delight 100% cotton fabrics. Jeanne has lots of quilts displayed as well as great sample projects. It is an awesome place to gain inspiration!

I remembered to take my camera, but didn’t remember to take very many shots, but the two scrapbook pages that I created will help me keep the day fresh on my mind.

Crafty Lady

When I began blogging in earnest last November, I created two blogs, one for Woodward Family Research (including variant spellings) throughout the United States, and the other “Anamnesis: Musings by Linda” designed to be used for a variety of topics. I’ve learned that “Anamnesis” is too diverse! Consequently, the blog has been split into three addition segments: 1) My Family Research; 2) North Georgia Research (families and Cherokee of North Georgia), and 3) Crafty Lady (scrapbooking, quilting and other crafts). “Anamnesis” will be reserved for my love of nature, and other items that interest me…it will still be a catchall.

In my spare time I love to quilt, scrapbook, do decorative painting, make soap, and other crafty things. This blog will be devoted to discussion of craft projects.
