e-scrapbooking

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

I feel compelled to respond to the KLM comment from the cemetery post.

e-scrap booking, digital scrap booking, whatever you want to call it... I prefer it.

I'm not a traditionally crafty person. I've tried to paint, write, play, create, glue, mold, blah blah blah.
People, it's not my gig.
All I do is find half-finished projects all over the house. In fact, I am sitting here in my digital hole with one of those darn crochet bags behind me just mocking me. (I had high hopes of making those cute little beaded baby socks... yeah, right.)

But this; this I can handle. Give me some digital files to whiz over the big I as my set of cropped pictures. Give me some HTML tags instead of those awful acid free everythings - glue, paper, stickers... I'm back in my element.
Thank goodness. I thought I was going to be forced to continue to hurl myself at one more failed craft project after another. You know, because I'm a chic and that's what we do... we craft. Isn't that right? Well, at least I think it's assumed that we're supposed to be crafty... and more so, we're supposed to just LOVE doing it.
No, everyone. This is my world. So, I'll be putting down my acid-free glues, my crochet hook, my paintbrush and water colors to return to a normal life again.

Now, let's see, where'd my desktop link for MS Paint go...

I seem to remember a certain craft project gone awry...the lampshade covered with brown paper that was supposed to look like leather? Yeah, crafting may not be for you!

However, I also seem to recall just who taught you how to crochet in the first place...
