So yesterday after picking Emilie up from school we stopped at a local scrapbook store to pick up Ali’s new book. I haven’t had a chance to do anything but flip through it at a stop light, but just going into the shop made my scrap mojo start to come back. We got out all my goodies and I took Nancy’s recommendation and started on my wedding scrapbook (about time right?).
A page on our save the date cards. "love our save the dates. We were so lucky to have an "in house" graphic designer: Sciarrino. Her & a co-worker came up with the clever wording. They were customized based on the recipient – only a few people got all the tickets." The date page is from an old diary, 7 gypsies transparencies, sassafrass lass, basic grey, and SEI paper. I wish knowledge of scrapbooking product was some kind of great skill to have. It is one of the only things I’ve ever managed to memorize!
So no big pages yet, no pictures, but a good start, I think. And I have a big mess going on, so good things are sure to come from that.
In other news: I’m selling my computer (!). I know my computer (Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5) is so so beautiful and wonderful and everything good. But Bj also has one and it’s a bit newer so we’re downsizing, and upgrading at the same time:
Bj is getting a MacBook (the sexy black variety). The goal is that hopefully we can get our act together on getting a window seat in the studio and he could be up here with me while I blog/craft/knit/surf/etc. So I’m getting his computer, well we’re sort of sharing both. But his computer will be up here with two screens and hooked up to our big Epson. My computer has a ton going for it (besides being a super sexy mac, have you seen the insides of these things?), and it was my first mac (I got it right before I started the blog). Now that Bj’s MacBook is here we’re going to start backing up files, and shuffling things around. So I’ll post more about my computer later if anyone is interested. And if you use the computer like I do, yes, it can handle watching a movie, editing photos, and surfing the web simultaneously no problem. hehehe.
