Organized . . . Yikes No!

Love ACDSee 10 but my addiction to digital scrapbooking supplies seems to be keeping me from completing my tagging of all my supplies. OK, how many things can I download in a day? Obviously too many, do I need all these things . . . I think so! Lately I have been being very selective on what I have been downloading, I'm hoping that this helps. I have put numerous hours into tagging, but I never seem to finish. If only I could put as much time into actually scrapbooking as I do collecting, shopping and downloading digital supplies.

I'm Being Published!

Imagine my surprise when I opened an email from Chad over at letting me know that a photo that I had posted in their gallery was being selected to appear in PassPorter's Walt Disney World 2009 book. In return for letting them us my photo it will be credited to me on the page that my photo appears (my name in print!) as well as on a special photo credit page. They will also be sending me a copy of the new Walt Disney World guidebook after it is released. I am tickled by this honor, also my daughter Ryleigh is very excited since she is the one in the photo, and how cool is that for a 9 year old? Passporter is an awesome site if you are planning a trip to Disney. Basically, you can get all your questions or concerns answered or find the info in their guide books. I often refer to their site when I am planning a trip to Walt Disney World (even thought I feel that I know a ton of information about Disney) I sometimes have to check or verify my information. I have recommended their books many times to friends and family who are planning their own trips. So be watching for their new 2009 guidebook October 15th.

My Pictures - GT Cindy

A New Beginning

Wow, here I am looking at this blank screen, what can I write that will be inspiring and interesting? I guess my real inspiration to start this blog has been to share my digital creations.

In May our family welcomed my sister’s new puppy and of course my sister wanted to share her new addition with friends and family. I jumped at the chance to create a “puppy birth announcement” for her. Within a few hours I had the basic announcement worked out and sent a copy over to my sister, she loved it. After waiting over three weeks for my sister to finally choose a name for her new little girl, she decided on “Fergie or Ferguson Jane.” I put the finishing touches on the digital puppy announcement and sent it over to my sister. Sue promptly sent it out via email to her many friends and relatives, she also printed out the announcement as a 5 x 7 photo to share with those who didn’t have email, and the responses were overwhelming.

Was this to be a new beginning for me? Well the ball has started rolling. I have had other requests for puppy announcements and now a twins’ birth announcement! The twins’ announcement is still a work and progress which I will share when it is complete. The future is wide open and I look forward to sharing my creations.
