I Made an Art. Sorta.

A few weeks ago, Jill at Jill Made It informed me that I won a giveaway for My Memories scrapbooking software.

Now, I love to scrapbook, but I get flustered when I do it. The scissors like to run away, the adhesive gets hidden under paper, brads and eyelets roll off the table and onto the floor, and I spend so much time looking for stuff that I lose all motivation to finish my page! So, this digital scrapbooking thing? Worth giving a shot.

This software is really cool. It’s pretty easy to figure out, and it has a ton of stuff to offer. Lots of options for decorating your pages. You can use the pre-made layouts, download packs from the My Memories site (they even have free ones), or make your own. There are paper packs, embellishments, text tools–the possibilities are endless!

Check out this simple page I threw together:

Not my most fancy or creative, but still, pretty cool, huh? I’m excited to explore this software’s potential. Who knows what I might come up with! :)

Letter Writing & Stationery

About ten years ago, I used to love collecting stationery and stickers. But then I got out of the whole letter-writing mode and got more into email and such. I still have plenty of stickers left over from my scrapbooking phase, but I lost my stationery.

I do have a lot of scrapbooking paper, but it’s not lined, and I really prefer writing on lined paper.

I’ve discovered how much I miss writing letters and how much I’d like to get into it… however, I cannot for the life of me remember where I used to buy all the pretty stationery I used to have! I was thinking places like Target or Hallmark, but their selections are regretfully small. It’s all about notecards and things like that. I’m looking for letter sheets and matching envelopes. I don’t need personalized, and that’s all the online places seem to offer. For those of you who buy and use stationery, where do you go to get it?
