Keepers of the Flame

Women are the ones that keep the memories, take the photos, pass on the old wive's tales, continue treasured traditions, and impart feminine wisdom to future generations. This is precisely one of the reasons why I haven't blogged much in the past two weeks.

It's because of free stuff....

{huh?}

For years I have had a passion for paper scrapbooking, organizing all the photos and trying to keep up with 30+ years of photos....Nope, I'm not caught up....Is anyone ever caught up? When you  take hundreds of photos a month, no one is EVER caught up.

But I'm digressing again.....

Recently I've switched over to digital scrapbooking. It's quicker, easier and less messy, and actually you can spend the same amount or considerably less on products-and they're reusable!  I heard about a web site called artscow.com, which is a printing company. If you join, they give you free digital books! The only price you have to pay is the shipping, which is expensive because it's published in Hong Kong. I've had free credits for dozens of free 8 x 8 digital scrapbooks and the credits will be running out.....TODAY!

So I've been frantically creating digital scrapbook pages, scanning old paper scrapbooks and trying to download them before the deadline. I still have 5 free credits left and only one ready to download....

{sigh}

I hate missing out on the free stuff....but one can only do so much.

As the Keeper of the Flame.

I'm going to have to check into this digital scrapbooking thing. I've been hearing about it and it interests me. I love the idea of scrapbooking but have not gotten into it because, even though it looks like a LOT of fun, it seems overwhelming. Digital sounds do-able. Your pages are pretty.

You are just an amazing woman! I have several digital photo albums that need to get made up. I could spend soooo much time . . . and it certainly does make less of a mess than my previous attempts!
