She Is Eco Chic with Simple Stories Vintage Bliss


The Gist

I am having an internal debate with myself about how much I need to write about my layouts.  When I was on a design team (one of the greatest experiences of my life) I was persuaded to write more about the product I used and the techniques that I used since I was trying to sell product for the store.  I was cool with that and enjoyed doing it…  Today, my scrapbooking is more about the fact that I am actually getting it done and enjoying the process to the best of my ability. I am not sure how much I need to write.  I am going to try to continue listing the products I used and continue to link the collections I used when I can remember what exact item I used (not always possible given the state of my scrap space).  I am happy to answer any questions you may have about my techniques or about the products (given the simplicity of my pages lately I don’t imagine there will be many).  I am also hoping for a new camera soon, but until then you will have to bear with me as I have less than perfect pictures…. my old camera went missing from my purse last August and I have been punting with a relic of a digital camera or the I-pod since ( I haven’t learned how to get a good picture from the I-pod, and the preview screen on the old digital doesn’t give a preview of the picture and the auto focus is pretty bad, so I don’t know what kind of image I got until I bring it inside and upload the picture on the computer; and then you have my shoddy vision issues I have to contend with).

Any suggestions you have that I can use to make this blog better, I surely would appreciate.  I feel like I am re-learning almost everything; including how to be a member of the human race again… So please, comments on anything are always appreciated.
