2015: project 365, week 1 & 2 …

So here I am, starting my fourth year of recording our family life through photos, one week at a time! I seem to have worked out a system over the years … I create a template, then simply choose seven photos from my collection from the week’s shooting, add some text, and I’m done! Even though at […]

sharing technology – project life app …

[from iTunes] It’s hard to put an exact date on it, but I think I started paper scrapbooking round about the year 2000. I’ve always been a ‘simple scrapper’, and it goes almost without saying that someone who inspired my scrapping life was Becky Higgins. I bought her books, I played around with her sketches, and […]

hello story – ali edwards’ class …

I have a confession to make, gentle reader … it seems that I have fallen off the ‘scrapping wagon’. Now, in my defence, I didn’t really want to fall off the wagon (there were extenuating reasons, like an interstate shift, and three months of living out of a suitcase in six different residences), and I […]

in another life …

In another life I used to be a scrapper, you know. Each week I would happily buy and download digital goodies, then create pages using these goodies. However, over the last few weeks, I’ve discovered some interesting things about my scrapping mojo. It’s up and gone, you see. It’s probably in storage with all the […]

I am a real podcast fan, and I listen on a daily basis to podcasts relating to quilting, scrapbooking, fiction, current affairs, […]
