Working Hard on the Website

Putting together the new Not Just Scrapbooks website is taking up a lot of time! There are so many aspects to it and I lost a week waiting for the provider to actually make it possible for me to upload everything to the site. There wasn’t a lot of incentive to work on pages that might never work. Finally we got everything squared away and I’m working hard to get everything up and running. For now I am a team of one so I hope you’ll indulge me.

I have to go back and work on links and see if everything matches up. I still have to add items in the store and that ain’t easy, as they say. At least now I can probably work on it a little faster, but more so in the morning as right now I am pooped and it’s 10:31pm my time. I did do something fun and booked a cruise for hubby and I to go on in August. It’s our first Carnival cruise and we are going to four places that I’ve already been to, but the good thing is we are shipping off from our home port so it’s only a 20 minute drive to the terminal. How fun is that!

Last couple of cruises I’ve actually taken my small HP printer, a TLC 6x6 scrapbook kit adding a few elements and scrapped the trip as it happened. I’m going to do that again as it’s so much fun! All I need is my cutter, a pair of scissors, some scrappy glue, a slick writer and some photo paper and I come home with only the last couple of pages to complete.

It’s not fancy scrapbooking it’s more like capturing the moment as best as possible.

Here are the front pages of those two trips.
The two books are filled with journalling, pictures, and in between the pages, the daily information sheets. I really like the fact that on the Ryndam we also got a daily news update as that will help ground the time spent on the cruise with what was happening around the world.

I know I promised pictures of my set up at home for my crop store, but I didn't get to that today. So I must apologize and promise that you'll see it all soon, perhaps as early as tomorrow! Meanwhile the prize for the drawing has grown a tiny little bit as a few people have trickled in mostly friends of April's! Thanks Cowchipper!!!

Will it be a magazine? A page kit? A mini album? something both bigger and smaller? Only a few days left till you find out who and what! I can hardly wait! Keep the people coming! Remember anyone that comes has a chance to win and the prize gets bigger the more people that come and leave a comment. One entry per comment and no more than one entry per person per day! Enjoy!

Thanks for coming by and checking out my site.
I love those earthy tones and decided to fill the pages kinda mono-chromatically. kinda.

Take care!
