I’m an Equal-Opportunity Scrapbooker

by Lain Ehmann on July 30, 2011

If you are just arriving at my blog via Digi Darla‘s, then let me just say…

You are so welcome here!

Whether you are a digi scrapbooker, a paper-based scrapbooker, a hybrid scrapper, or a wannabe scrapbooker — you belong HERE. Right here, right now.

I am a big believer in the freedom of scrapbooking. I want my visitors to feel like this site is a breath of fresh air to blow the cobwebs from your brain, fan the flames of your scrapbooking inspiration, and make you feel like you are where you belong.

We talk a little about design, a little about photography, a little about technique, and a LOT about process, goals, and philosophy. Not in a deep, hit-you-on-the-head-with-a-volume-of-Heidigger, but in a “THIS-is-why-I-do-this” way. I think a lot about scrapbooking, and I share those deep thoughts (or not-so-deep thoughts) here, and on my podcast. And the things I talk about typically apply to anyone who loves scrapbooking, whatever the tools are that you choose to use to express yourself.

Personally, I’m hugely in favor of any technology, tool, or method that allows more people to capture their memories, whether it be in a photo book, a blog, a digital file, a Smashbook, or a traditional scrapbook. It’s all good!

For me, I care less that you’re pixels-versus-paper, and more that you love scrapbooking. We’re all in this together. And I’m very, very glad you’re here.

I hope you’ll stay a while!

P.S. As a special gift for Digi Darla’s friends, please leave me a comment below by 5 PM Eastern tonight (Saturday) to be entered to win a special ScrapHappy prize pack, including a copy of my book, “Snippets: Mostly True Tales from the Lighter Side of Scrapbooking.”

    I don’t know how to do much on the internet.  I don’t know how to respond on facebook.  So I hope that I am doing this right.  I will continue to try on facebook too.  I want to be a part of the party!
