    howdy, howdy, howdy!

    I jumped right in first on the digital board. LOL

    Um... I'm a chronological paper scrapper who's way behind. I like crafts and have dabbled in different things. This spring I decided to try spinning yarn. LOL On a drop spindle - not as easy as it looks. LOL Also decided to take up needle felting, like I needed another hobby. Except I actually haven't made anything yet and I bought the supplies in May at a Sheep and Wool festival. But I will, I will!!

    I've got a boy and girl 4 years apart. My ds, the older, has high functioning autism, whom I started homeschooling after 5th grade. Good thing ds is smart because we just aren't compatible for homeschooling. LOL Yes, I give homeschoolers a bad name. But really, he's very smart. He took the NWEA test this past August and his score was above the 99th percentile in math. He's very into video games and computers and when he talks about that stuff it's all Greek to me. LOL

    Hmmmm... anything else?

    No.... I'll still be paper scrapping my albums. LOL Besides, I have a lot of supplies for it. Though not as much as a lot of scraprooms I've seen. Also, I've got boxes of printed photos (from film) and I scrap all my pics.

    I'm thinking of digi more for a special album (like favorite photos - I'll have to scan in a lot of them) or gifts. Something like that. And for printing some elements sometimes for my paper LO's. And cards.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    LOL Well, it won't happen with my prints. No way I am scanning all those in. Besides, then I'd still have the prints sitting around. LOL

  19. I'm a serial crafter, too! I like knitting and sewing and cooking... but scrapping is always first on my list.
    Welcome! I'm new here, too, so we can learn the ropes together!

    Ooh, chronological scrapper. Me too, me too!!! There aren't many of us here. Gotta stick together.

    Did you have success with the yarn? This is such a non-sequitur, but my sister had a beautiful chow-chow dog named Meska. Every time she brushed the dog, she saved the gorgeous orange fur. As the dog got older, her fur turned gold with white shot through. After the dog died, my sister found a woman in Virginia who cleans and spins animal fur into yarn and then will knit whatever you want with it. My sister had Meska's fur spun and made into a scarf and a beautiful hat. I've never met anyone who knew how to do that before!

    Ha! The reason I don't homeschool my daughter is because we'd do each other bodily harm before the day was out. I'm grateful every day for our awesome classical school here in town. I dodged that bullet!

    It won't be long before you're totally digital. Though if you are tactile, you may never leave the world of hybrid . . . but digital would free you up for all the other hobbies!

    I quickly switched to digital 7 years ago because I could get more done so much faster. Welcome to DD!

    Sarah - I've heard about that. Using pets and even your own hair to make yarn. Some people would think that's weird but how is it any weirder than using some other animal's hair/fur? Not that I intend to do it. LOL

    We don't have a problem with wanting to kill each other - he'll sit off on his own on the computer all day. LOL He downloads podcasts all the time! He's very into computers and video games and when he starts talking about some of that stuff, it's all greek to me! He just has never liked school and no interests (besides the aforementioned) that we could get into and discover together, kwim? So that makes it harder. Gotta have something to spark! A big part of taking him out of school was because of his autism making him different, we didn't want to send him into the lion's den. Hard enough on some kids who are 'normal'.

    Doubt I could go totally digital. For one thing, I don't even have my own computer. I hardly even got to use it yesterday. There's the look of the assembled pages vs printing them out, too. And then there's adding memorabilia, which to me, would be odd to have the real thing on a printed page - and I believe in using the real thing, not scanning it in if I can. LOL On my dd's pages, I like to use bits of fabric from clothing I've made her if I have it. Or I did one page where I cut out part of a dress (boughten) that was one of my favorites when she was a baby and attached it to the page. I think hybrid I'd mostly like to make and use elements like journaling boxes and some small printed papers to embellish with.

    Thanks everyone! Mollie, thank you, I'll see if I can come up with any more. LOL I wanted to share a set of Christmas backgrounds I made (which is the one thing I thought wasn't so hard. LOL) but apparently that's not allowed. Bummer. I don't think I'll make backgrounds very much, but it was all kind of exciting so I wanted to try it. I would if I thought I'd be making pages to sell, but I don't think that's going to happen. And even for cardmaking - it sucks up ink that's not very cheap to print them. But I would like to do some nice journaling boxes. I should do that with the stamps and ink I have. So many ideas.... so little motivation. LOL
