Ah, alas… so I’m not an Adams -- I’m a Baker

Courtney here, doing a stint as a guest blooger. And you might be asking yourself, “What in the world is she going to write about? We’ve already got politics, sports, and finance covered.” Well, I am here to introduce you to the wide world of ….drumroll please…. CRAFTS. Yes, that’s right - the stuff your grandmother does. I’m talking baking, scrapbooking, cards and photography. I won’t pretend to be a great writer, but I will always provide visuals.

I’m going to start off with a digital scrapbooking. I started scrapbooking in June, and I’ll admit it, I’m hooked. Who knew photoshop could be so fun? And honestly if you know how to use a computer it’s pretty easy. It does help to have someone teach you how to get started, but there are some fabulous resources out there if you are interested:

Digishoptalk
Two Peas in a Bucket (great tutorials, but I wouldn’t buy their products they are really high)
Little Dreamer Designs (serious high quality freebies)
Funky Playground Designs (just good products to get started)

Here is a page I just finished a few days ago. I’m still not sure how I ended up with a green and yellow Christmas page, but I did. Sometimes I get tired of red and green for every Christmas layout.

I hope that leaves you feeling a little more creative. Thank you for letting me share my art.
