Ok I might really like this digital scrapbooking thing. I didn't think that I would. I don't know why. I like my computer a lot. I guess I thought I was touchy-feely when it came to ink and paper. I worked most the day (except when I had to go to work) on my digital scrapbook for the Big Picture Scrapbooking Class I'm taking. "Everyone Can Write A Little." It's a class about writing in short snippets (Facebook and or Twitter) and digitally creating a scrapbook to record some of them. When I signed up I was only focused on the writing part... but this week we delved into Adobe Photoshop Elements - a place I would never have wandered on my own... yet I have discovered, this if FUN!
So I spent today watching the Cathy's Tutorial and following it in Photoshop E... and going all the way back to my very first Twitter post marking favorites that I might include in this album. I don't think I want to conventional scrapbook anymore. This is more fun! I think it is also in part because these are my thoughts--- because of that this album is going to be a lot about me. I am used to creating albums in which I (as the photo-taker in the family) am mostly invisible. It strikes me now as ironic to create scrapbooks as a mode of expression - from which I myself am absent.
Well better go check on the oven... it's frozen pizza and leftover chicken for dinner tonight or we'll never make it to Wednesday Night church on time.
