You have heard me say that my poor kids will probably need therapy for the dis-service I am doing in not scrapbooking. I know all the other Mommies make these amazing journals and keepsakes. I know that my kids will have to bring in a friggin circus animal for show and tell in order to compete with their friends. With all the money I am saving by not officially scrapbooking I will be able to afford their therapy sessions.
I have the photos, the albums, the creativity. What I don't have is the time, energy or financial resources to buy all the cutters, grommets, mattes, embellishments, tools and papers needed to create the beautiful scrapbooks I dream about. Even if I had the boat loads of cash, where would I store all the supplies and projects so that I could devote all of my spare time to bettering my kids memories of childhood? I doubt that I could handle the chaos that would happen if I even tried it- so my blog has been a half assed substitute for my lack of scrapbooking....until now.
I discovered a Mom owned, on line digital scrapbooking service ( www.howfasttheygrow.com) with templates that allow you to upload your photos, drag and drop them into the pages, journal a story or paragraph and look like you are a pro. It is so easy. No more excuses. I was able to crank out a 12 page baby book for Charlotte during her nap time. The company prints the pages and ships them to you- ready to be placed in a standard 12x12 leather scrapbook. Totally user friendly and in my own defense, idiot proof. At around $7.50 a page it is an affordable convienence.
The company featured us in their on-line newsletter and has a sample of some of the pages I made for Charlotte- you can see them here: http://hosted.verticalresponse.com/224353/13acaf5092/345000695/236e6565e3/
Now the only things stopping me from blogging and scrapbooking are excuses!
