Digital Scrapbooking ... I think I like this stuff

Digital Scrapbooking is AMAZING!

Granted I will NEVER give up the paper ;)

...this is why I think Digital Scrapbooking is so great.

1. No mess to clean up... just shut down the program and flip the switch on your computer and BINGO! ...Your done!
2. FREE Supplies!!! Did I say FREE? YES! I said FREE!!! Ok so your computer is not free and is in fact a HUGE investment but all of you out there have access to a computer anyway, right? So on the the free stuff.... Its simple, most digital scrapbooking sites have areas that list the free downloads or you can browse through your favorite digital scrap magazine and they list free downloads or simply do a web search. Lots of people note it on their blogs... I'm not there yet but most people do. Some day I will be that methodical and note where each and every paper or element came from.
3. Easy Shopping! You don't have to leave home much less get out of your chair! The world is at your fingertips... none of the dreaded
"sigh...but *enter store name here* is so far away".
(Can you tell I have limited resources where I live?)
4. ALMOST... Instant Gratification! Ok so maybe not instant but dang QUICK! I did the below LO (layout for those of you not fluent in Scrapbooking short hand) in just about an hour. Now if this were paper it would have taken me the better part of 3 hours.

On to the good stuff.....

Friday night is not date night...

....if you live in Arkansas and are single.
Friday night is "surf the net night" so I present my entertainment for the evening.

What's in a name?

What Nicki Means

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.

You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.

You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.

You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.

You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.

You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.

A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.

You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life.

You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip.

People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them.

Does this really sound like ME?
I think a lot of it does... but not the deep in thought part at the end! LOL

Bored out of my mind.... Venting

It's Sunday night, I woke from a nap about 1 1/2 hours ago, I need a job, I live with friends and I'm sick of looking for a job.....
Ugh!!!! I'm also searching for blogs... scrapbook blogs. What on earth makes all you creative people out there (ok scrapbookers) think I want to READ your blog???? Where are the Pictures????? I want to be inspired, motivated... get a free kick in the pants!!! But noooooo....
you are going to try and make me read! I guess the fix I get from will have to due.
Ok fine... on to other fun things I want to talk about.

  1. I'm buying a new computer. Saturday morning I am getting up as early as I can and driving to Tulsa to the Mac Store in Woodland Hills Mall. I am buying a Mac Book with my tax return. I need a new computer so bad... the one I have now is a cast off from a major Oil Company and I have have it for about 2 or 3 years. It is time for a new one!
  2. Bonus Time - AKA: Bill Pay-Off/Pay Down time! March 20th!

Ok thats all I have that Im excited about! I'm gonna call Meg and see if she wants to hang out ... im a mess right now! Weird-O.... Ugh
