I love to scrapbook. It is a hobby for me as well as something I feel I NEED to do. The hobby in it allows for creativity, time to socialize (as I usually scrapbook with friends), and organizing -- I know a strange part of a hobby but I do love to organize things! The NEED for me to do it is that I feel I need to be the one who documents my family for my husband and my children. If something were to happen to me, I want to know that I left my family with as many documented memories as possible.

I used to sell Creative Memories. It was fun; I enjoyed teaching others how to preserve their memories by way of a scrapbook. For years I only used Creative Memories products. Some of my friends would tease and say, "We have to hide the contraband (i.e. non-Creative Memories products) from Jennifer." Recently, I moved over to "contraband". In all honesty, it is easier to acquire than Creative Memories products. I also think Creative Memories has changed their inventory to a very limited selection. I will vouch for the Creative Memories albums and say I will most likely never use anything else. I am still in love with this.

A few weeks ago someone introduced me to doing your scrapbook pages digitally through I thought it was a great idea but was a little worried about how the pages would look. So I gave it a try and ordered three pages just to see how user friendly it was and to see how I liked the pages. Once you get the hang of the website, it is very fast and easy. The pages came yesterday and I think they look better than I expected. I am very pleased. Right now the company is offering a coupon if you are going to order try this one: THANKS2U. I believe it will give you 20% off your order.

I've decided not to go all digital. I still enjoy the "act" of scrapbooking at a crop with my friends. Plus, I have all the supplies to scrapbook like this so it wouldn't be an economical decision if I completely switched over. However, a few digital pages put in throughout the photo album will be the way I go.
