So, I'm headed to Portland this morning. In fact, I set this to post bright and early (the same time my flight takes off) I'm really hoping that my flight does indeed take off, as today is the 2nd attempt to get me to Portland for an all day BPS meeting.
We're meeting today with the team at Sundrop Media who is helping us reach out in some PR efforts to spread the good news about the big picture behind our beloved hobby of scrapbooking. I'm starting off the day with an interview on the Vicky and Jen Podcast and then we'll be discussing all kinds of exciting things that will be happening in the near future. We're even working on some improvements to the BPS website, so make the navigation more intuitive — good stuff.
Another item on the agenda is my blog. With the demise of Simple Scrapbooks, I really want to be a bit more intentional about my blog. I want to use it to more regularly post and share those things that resonate with YOU; those things that will keep you coming back and ultimately those things that will continue to grow a simplified and authentic approach to life and memory keeping.
If you're willing, I'm going to do some informal polling over the next week or so. Today, I'm hoping you'll do me a HUGE favor and tell me who you are.
Specifically, I would LOVE to know …
1. Are you a scrapbooker?
2. How old are you?
3. Are you married?
4. Do you have children? How many?
5. Have you taken a class at BPS?
and one final "open ended" question which is optional … What do you wish I would blog about more often?
Now, be sure to make this easy on yourself. For example, if I were to leave a comment it would look like this:
Yes. 43. Yes. Yes, Five. Yes, and organization and color.
that's it. Make sense?
I greatly appreciate your time and your insights. In fact, if you will leave a comment answering these questions, I'll enter you in a drawing for a product I LOVE.
This is an Apple Green ATG 714 adhesive dispenser, loaded with 1/4" wide acid-free tape. I had seen scrapbookers using these before, but wasn't properly introduced until I spoke at the Delta Phi Scrappa event in MN where I met Sue, the owner of Albums and Answers.
Sue gave me a very compelling demonstration and I was sold. One of my LOM students asked me yesterday, what I use to adhere ribbon on my layouts. My answer is while I've tried a myriad of things in the past, I NOW use my …
Apple Green ATG 714 adhesive dispenser, loaded with 1/4" wide acid-free tape.
I LOVE it.
You need to know that this very cool dispenser is quite pricey. You also need to know that I purposely have not talked about it until I've tested it completely. I have come to the conclusion that it is absolutely worth the price. And the cool thing about the Albums and Answers online store is that Sue brings these dispensers in and has them professionally painted, so you can have this handy tool in beautiful colors. For me, these little extras are worth a great deal!
I also have two easy-to-assemble mini-album kits from Albums and Answers to give away, so that is THREE great prizes for THREE lucky winners. I'll post the winners on Tuesday morning.
