8 years!!! So pleased you still grace the forum with your presence.
I still enjoy scrapping but I take less photos these days since my kids r older. Their free time and hobbies are less photogenic. You know, how many photos do you want of a teen playing Xbox or practising music LOL!?
I often make cards because they are quicker but it's a love hate relationship. There are probably 500 or more in my home so don't need to make any more for a lifetime.
But I am planning a new album. My 15yo son has found his joy and drive after a difficult few years at high school. He is a jazz saxophonist of some repute and I plan to scrapbook his achievements so far. This includes festival wins with his school bands, scholarship with one of Melbs premier arts venues, guest performance with professional big band and recently a win for an under 21 solo jazz comp. He is on a roll this year. Smile
I go on two retreats a year and that when I do the most of my Scrapbooking. And if I ever get myself more organised, I shall share some pages in the gallery.

Monk, well done to your talented son!! Regarding your cards have you ever thought about offering some of them to a school chaplain/s? That's where most of mine go. My chaplain friend retired but then there was a call out for cards for the local chaplains so I've been handing them in at church to be passed on and recently had a lovely response.

What a great idea Steph!

I'm still scrapping a storm, doing a card class and art journal class a month. Missing our monthly challenges but there are plenty of challenge blogs around to keep up active!

Unfortunately there must be still ongoing issues with the website as I managed to upload one file then it cracked it but on the bright side I managed one Smile

Woohoo, I'm on holidays. The first two weeks have been set aside to do some serious sorting and culling to pull my creative space into order, so I can move in it; have a place to work; and know where everything is. Now I've put it out there, I will have to do something about it!
Hmmm, will there be anyone that will hear me?

I pop in occasionally to see if anyone has been here.

I need to do some serious culling and sorting too...... Not sure when it will happen though....
