who are you? + a giveaway

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.

Web ATG Tape Guns - Green Apple (matte) 

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.

Stacyribbon

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.

Happy Friday.

    I like your ideas about reward systems for kids.
    I would like to see Scrapbooking Challenges on your blog – like make a page with these three colors; or using photos from 4 different times; etc. Its that kind of thing that gets me going scrapbookwise & since the Simple Blog is gone, I’ve been looking for a good substitute (I do like color combos galore & 52sketchesin52weeks for that); but would love a Stacy Scrapbook Challenge!

    Design ideas…how do you come up with photo placement ideas, especially when doing many photo layouts, developing a style, how the file drawers inspire different projects (I got this in the LOM class, but need another “boost”), the use of color…more specifically, how you choose colors to go with multiple file drawer photos from possibly different eras, how changing scrapping trends affect your layouts…if they do.

    Color and orginization are always good topics, inspiration. Journaling – something I always struggle with. Mini albums. Design, photography. Things like the ‘make the most of it’ article or ‘simple shortcuts’ or your ‘color play’ in fact if there was a way to make your color palatte printable on say a 3×5 card (in order to keep them all together) that would be soooo awesome.
    Basically anything remotly related to any of the articles in SS. I loved them all and am so sad that it is going away.
    Hope this helps!

    And if you are willi g to open up, i’d like to see more basics of inspiration: show us your home, take us through an album, tell us what keeps you going in this hobby…& remind us more often the ways in your everyday life that show you this is worth it… I so often get burnt out with scrapbooking and am ever-the-more tempted to switch to an all digital format (read: mypublisher photo books…). Hearing more of the day by day’s and play by play’s is always inspiring :)

  290. Yes; 42; yes; yes – 2 girls, 5 & 6; yes – I’m addicted to BPS classes! What I’d love to see now that SS is going away – just please keep sharing your vision with the rest of us! Love your album ideas, project ideas, ways to keep it simple to allow us to tell our stories in a fun yet meaningful way. Not asking for much is it? ;-) Just keep sharing you – I love how your mind works. Can not WAIT to hear your BPS plans! I’m afraid I’m hitting a lull in planned quarter classes. I didn’t meet criteria for Allison’s class and I don’t know Jenni to get excited about it. Not sure how much I’ll learn from Ali but will likely take it because it’s, well, Ali! Starting to see some of your 1-month classes pop up so glad for those. And thanks for Nic Howard on board! Just saw that posting.

    I would like to see a color class or topics on color. I am also loving the mixture of life and personal growth in both your blog and the BPS classes. Either through family stories or mentions of things you are reading or blogs you are visiting.

    I have someone bookmarked on youtube (but not on this school computer) who does videos of her scrapbooking method and projects and I noticed her using something like this! It was awesome! So I looked into it. The places where I found it, it was only about $55. BUT it did not come in cool colors. It is an item used by framers, I guess, and that’s where I found it, some framing supply website.
    I like your blog, I like the pictures and how upbeat it is. I am always interested in organization and in how to fit more “stuff” into a cram jammed life. Like how to say no, how to st up systems, what to let go of, etc.

    YES! (UR 2 Creative, LOM07, Wellness Journey, A New You, Just Between Us,the Reading Room)
    Please share how to scrapbook genuine feelings–the ones we have when our kids are misbehaving or when they do something embarassing like hit a classmate or call their cousin fat to her face. Scrapbooking to me is a form of therapy–if I can get it on paper in an esthetically pleasing way, then maybe I can “deal” with it better.
    The layouts featured in mags/books are lovely, but also not completely “real life” to me–my children are going through a tough phase right now, meaning I’m not feeling like scrapbooking their perfect smile, or hugging each other, etc. My “Big Picture” right now is trying to teach my children how to behave and treat others so they have a happy and healthy life, my “Big Picture” is not worrying about forgetting how sweet they are. Parenthood is hard–let’s not encourage scrapbooking to hide the true real life we all muddle through day after day!
    Thank you so much for your blog!!

    –I have found I have similar tastes in books as you. I love it when you tell us what you are reading…I just bought Organizing for the Spirit, and just read the Comfort of Color…and several others you’ve suggested. LOVED them all, and also love the Quote of the Day e-mails, they inspire the beginning of each of my school/work days.

    Love your blog – it is a nice mix of things – scrapbooking, life, great links. I am new to scrapbooking so I am just trying to absorp it all. I would really love to know more about LOM. You write about LOM students but I haven’t seen this as a class on BPS. I am very interested in the concept/class (?) so I’d like to hear more specific details about LOM. Your blog is great – I look forward to each new post!

  895. Yes, 34, Yes, Yes – 2, Yes. No opinions.

  896. 1. Sort of. I don’t scrapbook very often, but I write in journals and sketch and freeform knit and play with photos sometimes.

    3. Yes
    4. No
    5. Yes, I’m in the LOM class now.
    What do you wish I would blog about more often?
    I most enjoy seeing your completed pages and reading about your family life. I think you teach us so much about living a more closely examined scrapbooking life just through letting us into your own life. You show us how to be busy (overworked) modern people who are also grateful and joyful and creative. I am a writer and writing teacher, and I feel like I really “get” your beliefs about the creative process. Just reading about your life and seeing your creative works is more than enough (and much more important than “product”, as far as I’m concerned). Thanks for all you do.

    I love it when you post what you are reading and new products you enjoy. But, I can honestly say that as long as you have a blog I will read it regardless of what you post.You are an inspiration. I have enjoyed your blog since you started it.
