Blogging For Scrapbookers

So, I signed up to Shimelle's re-run of her Blogging for Scrapbookers class - and promptly forgot when it was supposed to start until logging into my email tonight and finding the first few prompts!

Hello to anyone that may be following from the forum - thanks for stopping by! 

I wanted to put a picture of my workspace to support this post however I am in the process of moving my scrapping space out of Miss H's nursery so most of my supplies are piled up on my desk in boxes, totes and folders and I am using the dining table/coffee table/laptop tray to scrap so it does not make a very inspiring picture!  Instead I have posted a series of pictures of the move, in the hope that it will get me motivated and by the end of this class I will be able to show off my newly organised space!
Ooh, what's going on in here...?
It's dangerous to let a non-scrapper help when it comes to moving scrap supplies!
Look at that excitement!

So, a very quick post tonight to get into a good habit ~ my reasons for taking part in this class and what I hope to achieve..

My main aim is to learn a bit more about the mechanics of a blog and maybe learn more about all the pretty themes, headers etc that I see on some peoples oh-so-lovely blogs!

With various upcoming family events there is no way I will be able to blog daily so I'm not going to set myself up for a fall!  I do hope that having an active class will mean that I take the time to put fingers to keyboard and record key events even if I don't get time to put pen (and photo and embellishments) to paper straight away!

I also intend to try and hop around various class mates blogs and try and expand how many I follow - see a bit more of Blogland!

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I will have something intersting for you all over the next few weeks and beyond...

  1. Good luck with the move & re-organizing your scrap space. What a precious little "helper" you have! Thanks for stopping by my blog - looking forward to "seeing" you in class.

  2. Your "little helper" is too cute - and definitely a good reason to be moving your stuff!

  3. Hi - stopping by from Shimelle's class. I hope you get things organized soon. Your little one is adorable. Will be checking back in to see your progress. :)


  4. Nice post. Good luck with the move! I found you through BFS.

  5. Good luck with your intentions! I'm a fellow classmate in Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbookers class. Looking forward to your posts!
