LOM 2009 Coaches + WIN a FREE Pass!

Thank you so much for your comments. I do not feel that Simple Scrapbooks was a failure. The fact that is has failed to continue is a failure and while I do question my influence in that process, I am also aware of other factors out of my control — don't worry though, I am not looking on these failings in a self-destructive way. In any venture there are failures and I found the video I shared to be very insightful moving forward!  Let's just say that NEW things are brewing.

Registration for the 2009 session of A Library of Memories is officially closed. LOM Alumni will be receiving an email shortly, explaining how to audit this session. The nervous anticipation is building inside of me and I'm tickled to announce my team of LOM coaches …
LOM Coaches

Rebecca, April, and Tamara (all returning) + Maureen and Monica (new this year) and finally, Kayla (our digital expert & coach) I adore these women, some of whom I've met in person and others only via the LOM class, email and blogs. Each has been open and honest with me and eager to share their ideas and insights. Each qualifies to be a coach this year, because they have made my system their own. I'm so excited for the NEW group of students that will learn from these girls!

AND NOW … what do you say we give away two FREE passes to A Library of Memories, starting in just a few short days? EVERYONE is eligible, even those who have already signed up (if you are registered and win, we will refund your registration fee!)

ALL you have to do is tell me in 15 words or less, why you need this workshop. Don't worry the winners will be selected randomly.

If you have time, here's some LOM Q&A …

[Questions from Nicole are in orange. Answers in black.]

First, I love your blog.  It is one of the top 5 that I read.  I have a couple questions about LOM.  I don't have your books but I plan on buying them someday.  The budget is very tight right now.  So I have tried to figure out your system just by what I have read on your blog.  I am in the middle of trying to reorganize my scrapbooking right now and I have some questions.
 
Do I have this right?  You print doubles of all your pictures.  One set go into photo albums.  The other set goes into 4 category draws. You then pull from those draws to create your scrapbook pages.  Those pages then go into albums based on the 4 categories (All About Us, People We Love, Places We Go and Things We Do).

You're getting close Nicole, but not quite. I absolutely believe in printing  pictures and I often print doubles of my most favorite images. I do not print doubles of everything.

My printed photos are immediately slipped into storage binders (Pioneer photo albums) so that they are protected and so that I  can see them and be inspired by them.

Overtime and in a very organic way, I pull, or remove a selection of my prints from my storage binders (organized chronologically) and place them into category drawers (by theme.) Category drawers are designed for long-term storage of a relatively small selection of prints. Category drawers help me draw personal and meaningful connections over time. I believe using and maintaining category drawers is the absolute secret weapon to authentic story-telling.

I pull pictures from both storage binders and category drawers to scrapbook and my finished layouts are not stored chronologically in annual albums, but rather in an ever-growing library of albums set up by the four categories: All About Us, People We Love, Places We Go, Things We Do.

Do the pictures in the photo albums stay there forever?  I think you are going to say no.  If the answer is no, why not?

My printed photos do NOT live
forever in my storage binders. These binders are working files that
enable me to be very productive with my limited creative time. I only
have 15 storage binders and so I am forced (in a very good way) to keep
pictures flowing through them. I do not want to keep or store ALL of my pictures. I do want to engage in the creative process of capturing life, editing the results and adding my perspective to our family's story. I want my family to enjoy an intimate relationship with the pages I create. Intimacy cannot be established when we attempt to scrapbook ALL or even most of the pictures we take.

Do you eventually scrapbook every or almost every picture you take?  Is that your goal or is your goal to just scrap the really special pictures or moments?

See answer above. My goal is to be aware and grateful for life, to document what is a very happy existence and to have FUN. I do this best with a very small percentage of the pictures I take!
 
Where do you put holidays, birthdays or special celebrations? Do you scrap them or just put them in photo albums (there are usually so many pictures at those events)?

This is a great question. These special event photos are included in my library albums. I do enjoy an approach that I call photo-album scrapbooking that helps me displays LOTS and LOTS of photos from special events, holidays and travel.
 
Do you have albums for each of your kids?  And if so does each kid have albums divided into the 4 categories.  I have 3 kids 5 and under and I have been tortured for the last five years trying to figure out if I should just have one set of albums for the whole family or if each kid should have their own.  Please advise!!!

Each of my children have albums in our All About Us section of the family library. These albums are about them, but they are NOT for them. These albums will stay in my home, when they leave. I create very condensed highlight albums for each of my children. These albums are called School of Life albums.

I have 3 kids 5 and under and I have been tortured for the last five years trying to figure out if I should just have one set of albums for the whole family or if each kid should have their own.  Please advise!!!

I hope these answers give you some direction. I certainly understand the frustration and overwhelming confusion (torture is a good word) that can grow out of a desire to document life!

Comments

  1. I took the first LOM Class and got so jazzed. Then took every LOM since as an alumni. I’ve done pretty good, but once i got a digital camera printing pictures has fallen drasticly and organizing them ( the digitals ) is overwhelming me! HELP!!

  2. I need this workshop because I’m “paralized” by my photos! HELP!!!!

  3. I don’t have much of a system and never can figure out what to scrapbook

  4. because the pictures are piling up! and i would love to get my money back!

  5. Marta Valdes says:

    Stacy, I am so excited to be taking this class again and I intend to stay focus from beginning to end. This is truly an amazing class. Anyone who takes this class, will take something with them, whether is printing photos (which is my weakness), getting organized, having stuffing party’s at your local scrapbook store and most of all, becoming a HAPPY SCRAPBOOKER again.
    Thank you once again for designing this system.
    Marta :)

  6. Anna Vollmer says:

    My 15 words are:
    I read both books, it hasn’t quite clicked all the way, I need the class.

  7. Jaime Sherman says:

    Piles of pictures all over my room. No organization of them at all.

  8. kjifmm@embarqmail.com says:

    Because I’ve read PhotoFreedom and still need help!

  9. I need scrapbooking to be fun again and not an overwhelming mess.

  10. I am so excited for the LOM class!! I have been in the process of trying to implement the “system” just by reading the book but I know that I will learn so much from you and your team that I just had to take the class! I am wayyyyyyyyy behind because I couldn’t scrapbook out of order and now I know that I can. Thank you!!

  11. I’ve started and stalled. Read photo freedom almost every night before bed. Love the square punch idea. Have used it to punch out tons of cute faces that weren’t cute overall pics. Thanks Stacy, we all love you.

  12. Cara in NJ says:

    I need help! I am so far behind and I really would LOVE to get caught up or at least find a system that will get me there eventually. HELP!!!

  13. I think I need this class because my pics are not organized whatsoever! I download to the computer and that’s about it. Then, when I want a pic, it takes me forever to find the one I want….most of the time it’s easier not to scrapbook…that’s kind of the funk I’ve been in lately, which is sad, but true!

  14. to many photos and I keep them all, work full-time, need help, please!

  15. Mandi Kehoe says:

    Too many pictures not in my scrapbooks!
    Ok, that was my 15 words or less answer, but I feel I need more words to really explain my feelings. Most of the 50,000 pictures living on my computer are pictures are of my dogs. I LIVE for my dogs. But they are getting older now and I am so afraid of not getting some of these pictures scrapped now before they pass away. I fear it will be too painful for me to create ‘personality’ pages of my dogs after they are gone. I want to be able to look through my scrapbooks and have those pages already completed so that I can enjoy and remember the goofy things they did!

  16. nomadscrapper says:

    Please set me free from my need to have every photo chronologically in a scrapbook.

  17. I would love to be able to just sit down and have the pictures in an organized system that I can simply pull and start scrapping.

  18. I have boxes of photos and I’m overwhelmed when I begin to scrap. where should I begin, most recent, oldest….. Help.

  19. Age 59 and photo album of my 2nd child (I’m not even talking scrapbook here) stopped at about age 9 mo. I kept 1st child’s album (not much better) hidden in closet because I didn’t want #2 to be hurt!

  20. I need to class because I want PHOTO FREEDOM !!:)!!

  21. My photos are all in albums (minus 1 yr.) but I bought Photo Freedom and thought I might just like another way of doing something.

  22. To organize pictures and get them into scrapbooks for my family to enjoy now!!!

  23. Tara Keefe says:

    Having a class to help me get started scrapbooking again and not to feel so overwhelmed would be great. Some organization to the madness – would be nice.

  24. I take so many photos, all digital now and am overwhelmed of what to do now.

  25. I have your two books, and I really think this is a good way for me to organize my photos. I want to be able to find the photo of a child with their favorite toy from 30 years ago, and not have to dig through boxes, envelopes, and various photo albums just to find it. I would love to join in on your class, and I am hoping next year to be able to. Thanks for this great idea. And I too will miss Simple. I would love to see you and Cathy and Wendy all working together again and again.

  31. scmommyknits says:

    I have your 2 books – just got Photo Freedom about a month ago & felt so motivated to break free of my crippling chronological system that I ordered the basic supplies & started working! Eventually found my way to your blog too.

Thank you so much for sharing what you’ve learned with us… you inspire me :)

  32. I’ve started my LoM after reading the book, I need help with the details!

I have alot going on right now I am trying to stay on track and headed in the right direction.

  44. Lara Dodds says:

    4 years of digital pics poorly organized…hampering my creativity…desparately seeking help for sake of my sanity!!!!

  45. Melissa Mac. says:

    I am fascinated by what I’ve read and I’d love the chance to take part!

  46. hmmmmmmm…why I NEED LOM…last year i took the GOBI class and really got things together as far as my space…but my years of pictures? Still all over the place…plus I WANT to scrapbook, but after a tough year last year (my Dad sick and then dying) I just got nothing done. I KNOW I want to scrapbook and put these memories together for my kids, because I may not always be there for them. So, I guess I need it to help put me back on track. WE haven’t been able to afford to sign up for it, as although my husband is still working, things are tough here in Maine…and many at the papermill are not working…I just don’t dare spend the extra money, just in case.
    Thanks!
    Dancingly, Denise

  47. I’d love to take LOM. I have a big rubbermaid tub full of pictures plus 8 photo boxes, also full of pictures, that need organizing. There are so many it’s just overwhelming. So I ignore them.

  48. I’m overwhelmed with knowing where to start – both on organizing my photos and supplies – and on scrapbooking itself.

Thank you for permission to NOT scrapbook all of my photos – because I already have more than enough for several lifetimes!

Thanks for the chance to win!!

  158. I read your book ‘Photo Freedom’, last week, and to be honest…: I am really confused. I thought that I would understand the concept after reading the book, but I guess I have to do it ‘in life’ to really ‘get it’.

  159. heather j. says:

    I read your book, started the system. Now I need more details to keep going.

  160. I need to change my perspecive on scrapbooking. Hope this class will help me.

  161. Just got your book recently and have read part of it. I am the type of person that takes lot’s of photos and stores them on my computer. Very little go into actual scrapbook pages and they are usually very ramdom (usually go with what makes me feel good). I used to feel very bad for not having any kind of order or being caught up. This is why I registered for this class. To get some kind of system going (that would fit me – this seams to be the case) and not feel that I haven’t caught up!
    So as we say in french MERCI for all your insight so far and looking forward to this class!

  178. I really need this class because I have 54 years worth of pictures sitting in envelopes, boxes and cedar chests – and I want to find and record my life’s story from all that.
    You have the best giveaways – thank you!!

  179. Lots of product and pictures. To few pages made. Need to break away from chronological obsession!

  180. It is very simple why I need this class…..I have no system. There, it is out there on the big ol’web. I have no organizational skills when it comes to my pics. I have the best of intentions, but I never seem to follow through and get it done!

  181. kimmikaye says:

    I’m running out of time. And memories are the only souvenirs we can take with us.

  182. I’ll make it easy — I’m terrible at printing photos because when I order them, they just sit in the box they were shipped in!!! Help!!!

  183. My mother AND my mother-in-law both gave me hundreds of pictures in the last weeks of me and my husband as children. (They didn’t know this of each other.) How will I get those, and all the memories that go with it, scrapped?? I need your class, Stacy!

  238. I’d love to take your class so that I can break free from the chronological mindset. I purchased your book some time back, but I still store and display everything chronologically.

  239. I’ve read your book and implemented some ideas but I someone (you) telling me what the next thing to do is. I’m over-analyzing every step so to hear extended reasonings on why this system works will allow me to quit analyzing and start working!

  240. Oops, if we violated the 15 words rule are we disqualified??

  249. Help! My oldest son is 22 and my youngest son is 10. Lots of pictures!!!

  250. I want to love scrapbooking again.

  251. I purchased The Big Picture and Photo Freedom. I have already begun using your system, and it is very freeing to my soul. I have been scrapbooking for 15 years, and had started to dread it. I was completing a family album and albums for each of my three children, all chronologically with every picture every taken for each album.
    I quickly finished the little I had left to finish out 2006 chronologically ( I know it wasn’t necessary). I have put all my photos into the binders and have begun working with them. I went to a crop last weekend, I took the 2007 binder and worked on scouting and family camping photos. I completed 8 pages and had a blast. I was glad to be able to pick out what I wanted to work on.
    It just feels like a load has been lifted from my shoulders.

  252. I have read and LOVE the book but I need hand-holding along the way!

  253. I wanted to take this class so bad. SO bad i could taste it. I have the book, I have read it cover to cover many times. But need the extra help from the class to get me to fully understand HOW. At this time, I just can’t afford it.
    So kind of you to offer a free pass…fingers crossed!!

  254. 50 years old – 3 daughters – one son-in-law – and a grandchild = lots of pics!!!!!

  255. Anne Thurlow says:

    I absolutely NEED this class because I am reorganizing my space. HELP!

  258. Nancy May says:

  260. Diana Donohue says:

    I have a daughter with Selective Mutism and I want people to see her how I see her beautiful, funny and smart…..they only see her as the girl who does not speak.

  261. I am already signed up and I soooo need this class!! I have 7 children and am soooo behind on my pics…so much so that I have frozen and don’t even know where to begin!!
    I can’t wait to start and be free to scrap happily again!!!
    Alisa

  262. After taking LOM last year its been especially nice to have this organizational system in place.
    Today I was able to sit down, look thru my drawers, and a couple of binders, pull some pictures–and find a specific picture I needed and easily do a LO about a favorite family past-time. I got about 12 LO’s done today, without agonizing about having pictures, or where to find them.
    Even though Simple will not be independently published anymore I am glad for all the issues I do have and that the concept was introduced in the Scrapbooking industry. It’s been wonderful having people who inspire and encourage us to focus on the memories, and use product as a tool to help narrate those favorite stories, instead of the focus being on the product.

  263. I don’t want to be paralyzed when it comes my pictures.

  264. so I can finally get a handle on my photos PLEASE HELP ME

  265. You know you need a class like this when life seems to be getting away from you and some sense of order needs to take place. LOM would definitely do this.

  266. I NEEEEEED THIS! I was organized, then had kids!!

  267. Carol Thompson says:

    pictures are everywhere. I really need help!

  268. I’m okay with the system I have, but it could be better more clear and easier to use. I always feel like I’m missing or forgetting something.
    -Kim

  269. So many pictures, so few pages of memories. Want to overcome my perfectionism!!

  270. Life if full of commitments, it would be scrapping for ME, making time for ME.

  271. I need this class because I am almost organized with scrapbooking except for having a system for my photos.

  272. I saved a drawer (old old) from my grandparents kitchen before we burned the house down, and there it sits full of pictures…my poor nephew the first (and only) boy in the family is turning 14 this summer, and nada to his pictures of babyhood(or life so far) …LOM sounds wonderful, plan to budget for it next time…

  385. Last night I tried to find 3 related photos. This class would really help me!

  386. I read PhotoFreedom last weekend. Today, 2 friends – separatley – told me how blue they are about scrapbooking and feeling behind. I of course said “have I got a book for you!” :D I LOVE the concept and really want to implement it myself. However, I am afraid that I will soon get overwhelmed and could use some personal coaching. I also have questions about how to approach this as a digital scrapper.

  387. Why do I need this class? As I gathered my pictures based on Photo Freedom I filled 6 photo storage boxes which means I have almost 6,ooo pictures that stare at me everytime I try to scrapbook. I think that about sums it up. Thanks for the giveaway!

  388. Susan Ringler says:

    Oh gosh, so many reasons I am taking this the third time. First and foremost I beleive in your process SO much! Secondly, I want to have the “story” down before I get old and gray and forget more! Thirdly I think the boys are getting old enough to appreciate the stories more. and last but never least……I LOVE TO DO LAYOUTS but rarely have the pics I need to do them! Bless you for doing this every year and just because you are who you are! Go Stacy.

  389. I lost two grandparents in the past 3 weeks. Twice we went through boxes of photos.

  390. I am dreaming of having a life of organized photos and documents that my children can learn from and I can remember the special moments of my/our lives!

  391. Stacks of photos,no end in sight, Stacy, help me get back loving my memories.

  392. simplysewhappy says:

    Time is passing and I am drowning in photos and ideas. Help me get organized.

  393. I need some spoon feeding!

  394. I want to scrap more of the relational groups of photos and be more organized.

  395. Sounds like a system which could *finally* help me get all my photos under control and, eventually, onto scrapbook pages. My mom is suffering from dementia, and I am SO sad that we didn’t get all of her stories matched up with her photos while we had the chance. I’m feeling that money is tight, time’s growing shorter all the time, and I need to ACT to preserve our family’s photos and memories!
    I also want to say that I have loved and appreciated ‘Simple’ from day one, and will miss it so very much, but really want to thank you and all the staff for many hours of inspiration and entertainment – a very special gift to all your readers. You have much to be proud of!
    Thank you!

  396. Kathryn Methot says:

    I have pictures floating around everywhere. I definitely need help.

  399. Bought the book and rereading it right now. I need someone to hold my hand.

  400. Four (4) kids … four (4) LARGE rubbermaid totes containing 26 years of photos … PLEASE HELP!!!

  401. Just need to clean out my cupboard and know which I can really throw away!

  402. Married, two kids, three moves, one deployment, two lost loved ones, all in ten years.

  403. I need help with the overwhelming amount of photos that we take, that I have collected over the past 30 years, and the fact that I tend to try to scrapbook EVERY photo. HELP! Money was tight and I couldn’t afford to sign up for the class earlier.

  404. We just moved and I would love some help on getting organized! I miss scrapbooking and I just haven’t been inspired in way too long because I’m living in chaos! Help me please! :)

  405. Katherine says:

    I really want to have my son’s life scrapbook up to date before he starts kindergarten in the fall – so far I have a “home from the hospital” and a few other odds and ends from classes I’ve gone to. Help!

  406. I am so unorganized that I forgot to register for the class before it closed. Help!

  407. I need LOM to help me focus on documenting every day life, personalities, connections with…other family, food, etc. I mostly scrap events, but I would love, love, love to scrap more personally…my kid’s favorite things, their personality traits, funny little things they say or do, etc.

  408. Overwhelmed with all the stories I want to tell…need help and organization ideas!

  412. I’m overwhelmed by the sheer number of pictures I take. I can’t scrap them all!

  413. I need LOM because, quite frankly, I am drowning in a sea of photos. My children were teens when I began scrapbooking and I have not scrapbooked any of our early days because I spend more time looking for photos than I actually spend creating. I need to change the tide and organize myself so that I do not continue to stifle my creativity!

  414. Michele Rosner says:

    I want to enjoy my photos and my family’s stories more.

  415. Hi Stacy, This class would be a delightful way for me to preserve my family’s memories in a new way as I have always scrapped chronologically.

  416. Paralysis by Analysis is why I am taking this class. I have been scrapping since 1998 but have only done maybe 15 pages due to the misguided need to be in cronological order and fear I will create something I hate. I am excited about the possibilities this class will facilitate.

  417. I need this class because I’ve lost my mojo for scrapping. I love it, I miss it. Jenny

  418. Ali in FL says:

    I have always scrapbooked my photos in chronological order. You mean there is another way?

  419. Because I have cupboards full of photos unscrapped and unorganised and the pressure of scrapping chronologically is causing me to avoid scrapping at all. And I don’t want that!

  420. Well, my life is trapped in boxes and I just need help sorting it all out. I have the category drawers, but can’t wrap my mind around the storage binders. Maybe I just need to read your books again to get my juices going!

  421. I have been scrapping for 16 years and my albums are boring!

  422. Read the book – more than once. Have the Pioneer photo albums and the American Crafts binder and have started my category box.
    Really wanted to sign up for the class but concerned about one more commitment.
    But if I win (!), I’ll be there!

  423. I have 3 kids, thousands of pictures, and no real organizational system. Help!

  424. I am overwhelmed by the amount of photos I take and cannot part with.

  425. five children,21 years of marriage,sooooo many pictures–drowning in chaos-help me, please!!!
    those are my 15 words….

  426. There’s got to a better way than my way–mine isn’t working! :)

  427. I really need this class – recently I’ve lost my mojo for scrapping :(

  428. Not knowing where my pictures are when I need them is stifling my creativity.

  429. Need to tell my story.
    Pictures and words.
    Overwhelming.
    This is my cry for help.

  430. Stacy, I really need this class! I have a million pictures of my 5year old triplets and I’m drowning in my photos! LOL I have already put my photos in binders but have yet to move onto the drawers. I do have your books, but I need more direction!!! Help!

  431. Have spent years taking pictures and buying stuff. If I actually make an album it is for a gift. Am so excited to learn more and feel free from the chronological thing! Keri

  432. lorisse humphries says:

    Love your moxie! Have your books and am in the process of organizing my photo boxes – would really appreciate some of your inspiration! ;)

  433. I have lots of photos and NO organization.

  438. Carmel Keane says:

  439. I love your classes

  440. Did I say I love your classes :)

  441. To gain some control over my photos as what I’m doing now is overwhelming me.
    Thanks Stacy!

  442. My photos are in a mess and not organized at all. In boxes here and envelopes there. Crisis LOL!

  443. Kara Massey says:

  452. I desperately need to work on organizing my photos and getting back to scrapbooking.

  453. I need to know where my pictures are!

  454. Many photos, no system – want to make the best use of my limited scrap time

  455. After returning to work full time this year, I am finding less and less time to scrapbook. I love the organization of your system and am eager to get it all set up so that when I do have little bits of time, I can actually get something done rather than feeling overwhelmed not knowing where to start!

  456. I started scrapping last year for my oldest son as he was getting ready to graduate high school. What a HUGE task of getting photos together. If I had known of LOM then, I would have been enjoying the task instead of stressing about it. My youngest son is 2 and I do not want to have a repeat 15 years from now. I NEED ORGANIZATION AND CREATIVE FREEDOM NOW! :-) Luv you Stacy!

  457. I’m drowning in photos! I’m overwhelmed, frustrated and wasting precious time spinning my wheels trying to figure out where to start!

  458. Carolina H says:

    Need to break away from scrapping chronologically….feel overwhelmed because I’m so behind. Would be great to win so I can sign up for other classes :)

  459. 3 kids in 3 years
    PHOTOS > time
    had given up on scrapbooking :(

    because I love what I’ve read on your blog
    I learn by DOING not by reading! although, I absolutely *LOVE* reading your blog and all that —- truth is, I won’t LEARN it until I APPLY it.
    I started scrapbooking in 1994. I have lots of them. Then I stopped cuz I got completely overwhelmed, and moved a few times, and – well, got “behind” and then it was worse and on and on it goes.
    i know there is better. I’ve begun it this year – I’ve embraced MINI BOOKS PROJECTS and absolutely love them! yep – I know this is for me. :)

  598. Ruth C. Roy in Pierson, MI says:

    I still have undeveloped film from cameras I haven’t owned in over 6 years. I also have stacks of photos from my childhood, my husband’s childhood, and our life together with our three children. My girls are getting ready to graduate from high school, and I haven’t finished scrapping their elementary school days. I need help so that I can get everything organized in a way that makes sense and so we can look at the photos whenever we want, even if they’re not in scrapbooks yet.

  599. jennifer h says:

    I like many others am stuck in chronological scrappin. I need FREEDOM!
    Thanks!!!

  600. At this point in my life, I still am able to finish some theme albums but I still get guilty about NOT getting into the daily stuff. I find that I remember stuff but still cannot find pictures to relate it to. GRRRR!

  601. I have all the supplies that I need to scrapbook, but no pictures developed!

  602. The endless boxes of photos my mom finds then sends – so appreciated … so frustrating!

  603. Because I have read the book and still cannot seem to get started on anything.

  604. LOM would be PERFECT companion to GOBI, in which I am currently enrolled!

  605. I need LOM because I have too many photos and too little time!

  606. Kathleen Brown says:

    I know the class will be fabulous and I can use your help getting organized!

  607. 14 cubic feet unsorted memories needing unleashed – in there somewhere!

  608. Christina C. says:

    How about 6 words – DH wants our bedroom back!

  609. An excuse to pull out all the photos and reminisce.

  610. LOM = acquiring a feeling of peace and centeredness. Ten years of photos backing up…

  611. I need the structure of the class to kick me in the butt to move and do.

  612. I have just inherited 6 large boxes (it completely filled my car trunk and then some) of family pictures. Some of which were taken during the Spanish-American war!
    I am so overwhelmed with the task of sorting and organizing them into something to be enjoyed for generations to come, I just don’t know how, what, why or when to start!
    I would love the help of the LOM class and the great staff to, not only start this journey, but to finish it!

  613. I need this class to help me continue organizing my photos and my LOM process.

  614. I need this workshop because…
    For the last 5 years I’ve been taking digital pictures and haven’t printed any out!!!
    (Wow! Exactly 15 words!)

  615. I have the book and love the idea. Now, i need the push to start.
    and, you inspire me! :O)

  616. I need the peace that comes along when following this method of storing and scrapbooking!

  617. I’m 63 years old with 21 grandkids and custody of my parent’s and grandparent’s photo albums. Enough said?

  618. Pick me! Pick me!

  619. My heart refuses to forget precious memories but I can’t say that for my mind. I need LOM to preserve what my heart knows.

  620. why do I need this class? Well because it’s STACY JULIAN’s class… that’s why!!! hehehe

  621. Denise Rotell says:

    Took a LOM class at a CK convention and can’t wait to get more details!

  622. I need help, I’ve heard amazing things about LOM and I adore you!

  623. My mom died in Nov and I need to start somewhere with all my photos.

  624. I need LOM because I want to stop feeling like I’m behind in my creativeness.

  625. I need LOM because I am a hamster in a wheel going no where fast.

  626. Therese Loef says:

    So many photos, so unorganized, so many memories I don’t want to lose; I need LOM.

  627. Veronica Berkey says:

    I need freedom to love telling stories about things I love- not feeling bogged down.

  628. I have become completely swamped with pictures,memorabilia, and being unorganized that I need LOM!!

  629. I need to be better organized, and get moving forward on my projects…I’m so disorganized, it keeps me frustrated and prevents me from moving toward my goals.

  630. LOM would give me the kick in the pants to get organized & get scrapping!
    ps. I SQUEALED with delight at the opportunity to win this! you ROCK!

  631. i need some motivation:)

  632. I have tons of photos in boxes.

  633. I need the guidance to get me back in gear with this hobby!

  634. I quit scrapbooking 5 yeas ago because I was overwhelmed! I need this class!!!

  635. There is such guilt (shame?) in leaving all the beautiful pictures sitting.

  636. With 5 kids and homeschooling, I’ve lost motivation. I need class called “Library of Memories.”

  637. Simple: I need some motivation.

  638. Amy Miller says:

    I need the push to get going again! Help me pretty please?!?

  639. I need your class because:
    I became overwhelmed and quit scrapping 10 years ago.

  640. Melissa Cavanaugh says:

    I seriously need this class, I have too many photos and not enough time!!

  641. I want to ‘embrace’(2009 word!) creativity more… so I need to feel less panic!

  642. Inspired1 says:

    6 funerals since October – I can’t wait any longer – want to capture life

  643. Bria White says:

    I want the freedom from the chronic feeling of “being behind”

  644. I don’t think I do.

  645. In a nutshell – I need help. Not organized, to much stuff, too few pages created.

  646. I spin my wheels all the time but never have anything to show for it.

  647. I am bogged down with too many pictures and not enough time to scrap.

  648. I am just starting to embrace scrapbooking “moments” rather than “events.” My books are filled with birthdays, trick or treat, class field trips … and while they are great, they don’t capture the essence of our lives. This weekend I took pictures to make a page about how my husband makes chocolate chip pancakes every Saturday morning …. something new. I need the class to help me get started!

  649. I am just starting to learn about scrapbooking life instead of just events!

  650. mrsmojanks says:

    I have four kids and not enough time to figure it out on my own.
    Amy M.

  651. i want the fun and joy to come back to my scrapbooking and I m hoping your system will help me!!!

  652. Mary Beth says:

    Been sick, forgot to register– friends took class–LOVED IT, don’t want to be left out.

  653. i think this class has just all the elements i need- i need it to sound like kindergarten and look like a crayon box. I like my organization to have as many colors as are in my stack of cardstocks and while I am not a huge scrapper- it’s a constant for 4 years and I’d like to get better at it:-)

  654. LOM sounds like kindergarten and looks like a crayon box and that’s what I need.

  655. I love the passion that you have for building memories around certain pictures and I recognize the need for me to organize my photos so that I can do a good job of capturing what was important in our family’s life. Can’t wait for the course to start!

  656. I am a paralyzed and overwhelmed scrapbooker. My photos are a disorganized mess! It’s sad.

  657. 25 years of STUFF…need help, feels like I’m drowning under pics, papers, memorabilia, no time…beginning to lose my desire to preserve anything.

  658. Jennifer A says:

    there are random photos in every nook and cranny in my house, LOL!

  659. momto4greatkids - Kelli says:

    I have 4 kids – 11, 8, 4 and 4. More pictures than I have the money to print. I’ve also heard rave reviews from the BOGI class and want to check out what it’s all about!

  660. i never do anything with my photos anymore because it takes so long to gather them into some order that i am out of time! and with 5 kids from 12 to 1, there are plenty of new photographs every day!

  661. Pictures of my family deserve more than becoming a box of nameless & dateless photos for future generations to inherit! Thank you for the opportunity to win free tuition to this class!!

  662. I am tired of hoping those pictures are going to jump into albums by themselves.

  663. Debbie House says:

    Stacy…I need to be FREE and TELL MY stories…YOU told me so!!
    Debbie House

  666. Found a treasure trove of old photos while early Spring cleaning – Help!!

  667. boxes of photos + need to enjoy my memory keeping = pick me please

  668. Need LOM because I have tons of photos, but haven’t scrapped in TOO long.
    ~Lois

  670. Nicky from Canada says:

    I need to take more time to tell my stories for future generations.

  671. Catharine says:

    Just need that extra push to get it all going!Thanks Stacey!

  672. shari (tigsnbitz) says:

    Boy do I ever need LOM. I have all my pictures in boxes that I thought were in order…until I tried to find one and realized I have a mess.

  673. I just need help!!!!! I always say creativity and organization do not necessarily go hand in hand.

  674. Just want to be able to put my fingers on the photos of the past that I need to scrap. (More recent photos are not such a challenge. Just want to make connections too!

  675. I have over 4000 pictures from the last four years on my computer, most of them only organized by when they were uploaded onto the computer. Help!

  676. I need this class because my photos are NOT organized in any way…I started scrapbooking 2 years ago with 3 teenage boys. My goal was to have a scrapbook done for my oldest son before he graduated highschool…I have reset this goal to “before he graduates college”. Help!!!

  677. Danelle A says:

    Can’t WAIT to start the organization process!! Am in desperate need of order. :)

  678. Stacy help! I think I might have missed the email for alumni of LOM! I have been sick and my inbox has been full and I am so afraid it bounced back! Did I miss it? and if so, how can I register???
    thanks!

  679. I need this class. i was going to sign up and my daughter got very ill and when I went back it was closed. I have your book which I love and already bought 10 storage binders, office depot category drawers and some American Crafts albums and a few other things. But I need more help than just the book. I cant wait a whole year for the next class. Im desperate to get started……

  680. I am so overwhelmed I don’t know where to start….help

  681. In ’91 my grandfather died and I inherited two cardboard boxes filled with beautiful sepia formal portraits of unknown family members whose life stories would never be passed along. I’ve since promised myself that the stories of my children and I would be told..and yet I need a plan to reach that goal. LOM can make it happen for us all.

  682. Daughter is disabled. I need the break to work on something for me!
    Thanks!!!

  683. Melanie Parrish says:

    I think need this class because nothing is really organized in any way and I don’t have the ability to get it done, a couple of reasons, cash flow and because I have a totally messed up lower back due to car accident and I had surgery that was supposed to fix me …but instead, it made it all worse, much, much worse, ask everyone who knows me.
    I (middle aged woman from Germany, moved here to the USA in Jan. 2000), started scrapbooking 1 1/2 years ago, because I want to put my photos on pretty backgrounds and add my journaling, telling the story and letting the people know how much I love each one!!! We have 2 girls (7 and 17) I really would love to have my older daughter Album ready before she heads for College this fall!!! My goal was to have a scrapbook done for my daughter before she graduates high school in June ’09… Please Help!!!
    AND I love you Style(s), I wouldn’t mind if I had you ideas here at my home!!!! Actually that would be AWESOME!!!!!
