I registered New Year's Eve for Stacy Julian's LOM (Library of Memories) class on Big Picture Scrapbooking. I have read and heard so many people say, "This class changed my life." Some even said, "And I really mean it." I read one girl's entire year's blog of her journey with LOM, and wished I could sign up immediately. The problem is you can only sign up once a year in December to January. It starts this year on February 4th. I'm presently doing the first pre-class exercise, starting the photo organization.
Now, of course, I have to admit I don't have the problem like a lot of people who have hundreds and hundreds and years and years of photos. When I began Creative Memories 11 years ago, that's something I tackled early on. I also have to admit I am not as completely organized right now as I should be. Life. What more can I say? And now with the digital, I do have more than I should on my flashdrive that need to be printed.
But with the organizing I'm doing now, I've already seen changes. Thisi class changes the way you scrapbook. I already see that, and I haven't even had my first real class.
I will be substituting some of the products used because I already have them, and Stacy suggests we do that to save bucks in this economy. For instance, I will use my Mini Power Sort boxes instead of the steel drawers Stacy uses. I'll use the big Power Sort for "cold storage." And I will continue to use my CM albums.
