Just got a heads-up on a new website, Linkory , that lets you share memories with the world. From their website…
Everyone has memories. We share them with friends and family throughout our lives. Linkory.com is the only place that makes capturing and sharing memories fun, easy and free.
Your posting of a particular memory will act as the first link in a chain. Others in the global community with similar experiences will add to the chain. This powerful and exciting Linkory process will reveal the complete recollection of an event, enhance the experience for all participants, and generate an historical sequence. You will reunite with family and friends and connect with others who share common or related memories.
Ok, so to get rolling, I thought I’d post a question on the blog.Â I know that I’ve still got a good number of people subscribing to it, but since it’s been dormant for so long, not sure the response I’ll get.Â Now is as good a time as any to get some comments going!
How do you find time to craft? Do you make a ‘date’ with yourself and schedule time or do you wait until every other possible to-do in your life is done? Do you craft solo or with friends?Â How does crafting fit into your life (or you life fit into your crafting!)?
Right now I’ve got a 1st grader that is gone from 8am til 3:30pm and an infant that takes two fairly long naps during that time.Â In theory, I should have a boatload of time, but I don’t.Â How do you balance it all?
I’m looking to expand out a bit in 2008. I’m looking for a scrapbooking/paper arts partner (female…gotta throw that in) in the Mercer/northern Burlington County NJ area that wants to be a part of the SCRAPcast podcast. If you think you can commit to coming to my house 1-2x a month (weekdays or weekends) please contact me! If you aren’t in my neck of the woods and are still interested in being on SCRAPcast, gimmie a shout! We can work remotely via Skype (techie gurus need apply). We will be aiming to record two shows a month.
Part of my resolution for 2008 is to GET MOVING & CREATE! But with that comes organization and purging. I’m not one to have a spotless home unless I know my mom is stopping by, but my craft studio CANNOT be messy for me to work. Granted, it winds up that way when I’m done, but I just can’t focus if everything isn’t put away and organized. My husband would tell you I’m a messy person, but in reality I am a closet neat-freak. But to get some reward for all the thankless work I’m doing to get my studio in gear, I have to take mini work breaks and actually touch paper and adhesive. I’m sure I’m not alone in the fact that I already have way more pictures RIGHT NOW than I could ever scrapbook and on the other hand want to create pieces that I have no personal need for – just for the love of creating. That’s where Etsy comes in!
I am doing the craft fair circuit this year, at least a few anyway. The cool thing about that is that you have to come prepared with a ginormous amount of stock, sometimes never knowing exactly what item will be the hot seller. Hmm, I better get cleaning and organizing again!
