Today's entry is all about scrapping - not fighting with anyone, its about scrapbooking, digital scrapbooking in fact. I have been scrapping for a couple of years now and I can't imagine my life without it. Scrapping is an art form for me. It allows me to define what my life is about and express it on paper. As much as my 'traditional' art (painting and drawing) allows me to share who I am, digital scrapbooking allows me to organize the moments of my life with others.
There's an entire community of scrappers 'out there' and I've made some terrific friendships. I've personally never met a cold or indifferent person online who scraps. I've benefitted from the experience of many designer friends. This is one huge family and I'm so glad to have found my niche here.
Now, the digital community is a close knit one and there are some terrific sites to help even the novice get going, with videos and radio and what-I-knows... here are some sites I find very helpful:
SCRAPADELIC DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING (videos)
DIGI SHOPTALK (radio - in fact they have a session on piracy!)
These are just a few - there are so many more.
