I should be getting ready for work right now, but after hauling all my scrapbooking stuff from North Florida, where I live, to Atlanta where I work every week, I decided it might be a good time to start some digital scrapbooks. But, when you've been scrapbooking and amassed such a huge collection of STUFF, it's hard to make the switch. I'm betting a bunch of you feel my pain here! There should be a show about scrapbooking hoarders. I'll be on the first episode, k?

So, I am like a nekkid little newborn here. Other than piddling with Mixbook a little, I haven't really done any digital scrapping. I liked the look of GingerScraps, so here I am. My first digi website!

So, this is me in a nutshell: Fiction writer, chronic photographer, stage mother, empty nester, adoring YaYa (don't call me grandma) to Skye, Nathan, Evie, Weston, Nolan and Khloe, full-time employee, oh my...and WIFE! I do have an absolutely wonderful husband who gets pushed aside for all the other stuff that comes first. I don't deserve him and I know it. I'm just sayin....

Eventually I'll get a photo of myself on my profile, but I'm always behind the camera, so I put one of my favorites of my baby girl, Emily. Not such a baby anymore!

Can't wait to make friends and learn as much as I can absorb from all you pros out there. Now, speaking of nekkid...time to hit the shower and act like I have a job!

Have a great week everyone!

Welcome to GS, Cassie! And we all totally feel your scrapbook pain, LOL. When I moved 1 1/2 years ago, my FULL ROOM of scrap supplies stayed in storage due to space issues. It's still there :). You will love digi and it will be easier to "let go"... or perhaps you'll be hybrid! (I admire hybrid folks).

Regardless, you have stumbled upon a great group of scrappers and I hope you have a great time. Holler if you need anything.

Oh, and BTW, I live in Columbus, GA... only 90 miles from Hotlanta ;). We are neighbors.

Thanks for the note! We ARE neighbors! We're doing a job over in Columbus this week. Our company rents under bridge access equipment, so if you see a wild looking platform on a bridge somewhere with an "Inspectabridge" banner, that's us!

I am on the road so much these days that it is going to be wonderful to have all my TOOLS in my briefcase. I can hardly fathom it!

Thanks again!

Welcome Cass! I loved your description - you sound like you'd fit in perfectly around here! :D Dive right in - and like Gina said - if you have any questions - holler! We'll try to point you in the right direction!

And I was a paper scrapper - so I can relate to the hoarding :) But boy - is it NICE to be able to grab my laptop and scrap on the go! My parents live about 3 hours from here - and I have been known to scrap while the hubby drives - its AWESOME!

Welcome to GingerScraps and digi! I'm a reformed paper scraper to and I don't miss it, not even a tiny bit! Occasionally I'll break out the scissors, tape squares and paper (yes, I still have a room full) to do some hybrid but it just reminds me how much I don't miss the scissors, tape squares and paper bits everywhere! :)

Holy Smokes, Batman... what a small world! If I see you under a bridge, I may just have to stop hehe. Now that would be a hoot, huh? "Hmmm, are any of you reformed paper scrappers that are now posting at GingerScraps Site?" :hysterical:

hello and welcome to GS! As others have said, I feel your "hoarding pain" lol. ;) I finally got rid of my paper scrapping stuff after I'd bee digiscrapping for about 1.5 years... and right before I moved 1,300 miles. I had no problem getting rid of my paper supplies when the alternative was packing/unpacking it all, just to have it sit in the closet, unused. ;) But now I'm a DS supply hoarder. EEK! lol

LOL...well I promise, I DO have a face! I'll try to show my face BEFORE I show my behind. hehe
I can tell I'm gonna have a great time here. I spent some time today trying to figure out how to tackle my first digital project, but it's a bit more technical than I expected. I've been doing digital photography for long enough that I should be able to get the hang of it. I'll be sure to ask questions...as soon as I figure out what questions to ask! Thanks for the welcome. In the meantime, the camaraderie will be lots of fun, I can tell!

Haha! I should have clarified that statement. Our guys will be on the job. Our "girl" will be safely in the Atlanta office. I'm scared of heights!! They keep saying they're gonna get me out on the platform on one of the bridges, but that'll be the day! :(

Okay...so far, I'm bad at this! Y'all bear with me. I would have sworn I was at least familiar enough with FORUMS to reply correctly.
Anyway...thanks for ALL the nice notes. I feel so welcomed! I can't wait until I can do all this cool stuff I keep seeing. I really am artsy, but maybe not so techsy! Thanks again!

I am also a digi and paper scrapper. But the paper is usually for cards now instead of layouts. This is a great place with some great personalities and I love it here. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Welcome Cassie! I started as a paper scrapper and still have a stash but I have no desire to go back :) I've just been trying to find as many card and paper crafting projects I can to use it all up! You will love having Gingerscraps as your "home". It's a great place to be! The place I started was with templates-it's a great way to get your feet wet (you get a free template in the cookie cutter challenge twice a month!).

Anyway, welcome, welcome!
