Chances are, if you are reading this, you are either (a) my mom or (b) a scrap happy soul that is charged with memory keeping in his or her home. (Not to say i don’t appreciate your readership mom- I love you!) And chances are also great that you love the digi stuff. But, if you are like me- it’s not too hard to find traditional scrapping buddies- but it’s really hard to find someone who loves the digi side of it as much as you do. I think that’s why forums are so popular- and so geographically varied.
There are millions of us- but more than likely, we don’t live next door to each other. I know there have been many a time that I do something on my computer that makes me feel so darn proud- like nailing shadowing JUST RIGHT or creating a text path in a really neat way- and I look over my shoulder and there is no one around who gets it. Heck, even when I design a kit- it’s hard to find people nearby who really appreacite what that means. So- you wind up talking to yourself. “hey, that’s cool” “yes, it is” “yep.”…. kind of sad. Reminds me of poor Tom Hanks in Castaway. “Wilson! Do you like these flowers here- or here?” “Wilson- are you listening?!”
That is why I really suggest listening to the Digi Show. True- I have been on a few times- (it’s hard for me to listen to those episodes because NO WAY do I sound like that! 🙂 but that’s not why I’m suggesting it to you. It’s because you get to listen to people who get it. Get the excitement and joy and fun in this hobby. You’ll probably come away learning a little something too. And, it’s all so lighthearted that you’ll find yourself talking out loud while listening. True, your technically talking to yourself- but somehow this way seems a little less sad. 😉
