Alright Already... An Update!?

Alright Already... a Real Update... with Pictures and everything?! So... yeah - I finished my Blank Album that I am donating to the Church for a Door Prize... Wow... um - I sorta love it?! I would love to fill it with gorgeous photo's taken in the Fall... um - I am gonna try to win it back!? Sad - I know?! But... it COULD happen?! Once I got going - it didn't take that long... but here's the deal... I still have so much trouble pricing things out... According to my website, this album would cost apx. $160... now - see - to me - that is just crazy talk!? But - really - the supplies are about $50... and then my time... oh yeah - and my 'expertise'... hmmm!? Now - I have other S4O people complaining that my prices are too low?! Weird... if that was true - you would think I would be super busy with clients who find my prices are so great... but that has yet to happen!? I am wondering if I actually rose my prices if I would finally get some steady business?! Seems strange - but you know how some people are... the more expensive - the better the service?!

Anyway... So - yes - (Darcie) this is why I hadn't updated for - what - a day or something?! LOL?! I was busy making this album... I am really praying that this donation will really stir up some interest in my business from our rather large church?! It will help get the word out hopefully?! Oh... I watched a DVD that I received from CK and SS... it is part of a new Instructional DVD Club or something... it featured all the big wigs... I was a bit disappointed in it... just because - come to find out - these people are pretty much just like me... and it got me thinking... hey - I too could reach Scrapbook Super Stardom!? LOL!? Why not?! I am sure the DVD was a Basic Scrapbooking deal... and there were maybe two or three techniques that I didn't know how to do... but that is not because I couldn't figure it out - but because it is just not my style?! Anyway - I sent it back with a Thanks but No Thanks... I get to keep the Card Kit though... so I will play with that soon! (AFTER I finish that Surprise Birthday Project... but probably BEFORE I get to actually see any of Darcie's uploaded pictures?!) tee hee!!!

Scrap On Ladies!!!! Scrap ON!

Oh - hey - I forgot to complain about something... LOL!? I know - honestly... I know it is a shocking thought... but what I was most looking forward to in scrapping with OTHER PEOPLE was browsing through their Albums and getting some new ideas... I was so bummed when I realized that I didn't even think to do that when I was on vacation... of course - that GI-NORMOUS STACK of loose pages didn't seem to 'browse-able'!!! LOL!

Are you saying you don't particulary care for the "stacked" album?! LOL! Just think, it will never really be full....

The album looks fab & I'm sure it will do great at the auction!!

I WISH it was an auction... it is a Door Prize! LOL! But still... hopefully it will generate some attention and interest none the less!

And yes... you DO have a good point... the "Stacked Album" would never actually be FULL!? ...something to think about?! LOL!

Very cute album!!! Good luck with getting more business, that would be wonderful!

As for the albums....
1. I think the stackable pages are going to be the new trend. No need to weigh the pages down with a boring ole book. LOL
2. You can glance at (some) of my layouts thru one of my "albums" on my blog...I am going to be posting some more soon...not the same as looking thru an album, but a start, yes?
