So … I'm back today, attempting to catch up with LOTS of email and a few deadlines. Yesterday was amazing, the snow just kept falling. Geof told me we set a record for the most snow in 24 hours — since 1881 or something? CRAZY. It is absolutely gorgeous out my window. So totally white and serene.
I'm going to answer another Library of Memories question and then hit my to-do list!
Q: I purchased your book
and really love the concepts in it. One question I have is this. I am a
paper, digi and hybrid scrapper…I never know what I am going to do
with a certain pic until inspiration hits. Do I still print out all the
photos? Or is there a way to use this type of organization without
printing them all out?
A: The first answer is NO, you do not need to print ALL of your pictures. I am a huge advocate for printing photos (I share my reasons in class) but if you are a hybrid or digital scrapbooker you do not need to print ALL your photos. I do believe that you should print some (even if only 10%) so that they can be seen and appreciated by family and friends while they are waiting to be scrapped. More importantly, I believe that good and important things happen inside of you when you are able to physically see (over and over again) your printed photos. Simply put, there is a different kind of intimacy that develops with a physical print vs. a digital image. Again, more on this in class.
I am in the beginning stages of organizing and
just thought I would ask if you had any ideas for us digi scrappers
too. I paper scrap more then digi right now so I am leaning towards
just printing them.
Thanks so much for your great ideas!!!
Blessings, Alisa (Thank YOU Alisa)
A: The other answer is YES, there is a way to customize the LOM system to hybrid and digital scrapbooking. In fact, I have invited a digital expert to join me in the 2009 session, as our digital coach. We will have a message board dedicated to LOMdigital and I'm positive that wonderful insights and adaptations will develop there.
We're going to see Santa tonight and I'm taking the boys on a horse and carriage ride. I'm baking potatoes wrapped in tinfoil (the original hand warmers) for their pockets.
