It's been slow going since the new year. I had a major cleaning session in my scrap and craft room/playroom/office --not that you would really be able to tell right now. I took the time to clean out the scary closet and to actually get rid of some stuff (just crafts stuff at this point). It's amazing how much space you can free up just by consolidating. I bought 1 set of 8 1/2x 11 plastic drawers and one magazine file, and the rest was pretty much rearranging.
I do still need to go through my scrap supplies and give some away, but I haven't been able to bring myself to that point yet. I have several goals rolling around in my head in regards to scrapping, but I haven't thought through things enough to actually write them out. I should probably do that. I'm just happy to be able to share an actual layout with you. I'm pretty happy with this one. I've been doing a lot of thinking about my style and I hope it will begin to shine through in my work. I also hope it will get me somewhere, but that's another story.
On another note, I did finally get a new camera!! I am sooo excited to get some better photos. Now my problem is going to be that I like too many of them. Not that I'm all that good right now, but it's such an improvement over my piddly camera I was using. I have a lot to learn, and half of the photography section of the local library is sittin on the floor in the den right now. I so wish I could take a class. I learn so much better through discussion and hands-on work. You can see some of my first photos (in auto of course) on the LO here. I have been able to start figuring out the manual stuff too, and it's not so bad. It is going to be great to have inspiring photos to scrap!!
