Hi.

Welcome to my blog! I write, and take photos, and use Photoshop every day. I love learning and surprises and my sweet family and being a transplanted southerner.

Shutterfly and NSD

We spent the day at Shutterfly yesterday. It is such a cool place. They have a two-story entrance with a huge staircase going up the middle, and there are photos posted all over the walls. And they aren’t just pro or stock photos - they are real-life pictures, too. Their whole culture is about helping their customers connect with the people who are important to them, and they organized this event to understand more about scrapbooking in general.

Ali spoke first, and talked about why she scrapbooks, what motivates her, and offered some ideas for connecting with scrapbookers. Dave O’Neil (the CEO of CK Media) talked about the business of scrapbooking. They invited me there to talk about digital scrapbooking, and the scrappers who create pages in Photoshop (whether from quickpages, templates, or from scratch). They were very interested in learning more about the digital world, and I hope I represented. ;)

The afternoon finished off with a paper scrapbooking class, where about 15 Shutterfly employees got to try out scrapbooking for the first time. :)

Since I got to fly all the way across the country for this, I got an extra night’s stay here, and I’ll be heading home today.

BUT, I wanted to pass along a great deal - National Scrapbooking Day is Monday, and our friends at DesignerDigitals are holding a huge sale:
