Day One…

…of the Blogging For Scrapbookers class which I have signed up for.  This will hopefully be the first class of Shimelle’s that I can complete. I signed up for Journal Your Christmas last year but with one family problem and another I didn’t get past reading the first three or four prompts.

I have been using LiveJournal to type my thoughts for a few years now as I have friends who are non-crafty who also use it…but there I mostly write about my beloved cat and various TV shows that we are interested in. This blog will probably be more directed to my crafting, such as it is!

Today’s prompt was all about the idea of the course and my intentions and the three options depending on how much time you have.  I will probably alternate between the three options and today I have gone for options 2 which involved a post and taking a photo to show how blogging and scrapbooking can go together.

I craft and use the PC at the same desk when in my computer room so that’s the photo I took today because that’s where most of this class will be completed.


To symbolise the crafting side of the class I took a picture of my trusty tote bag which stores most of my everyday scrapbooking supplies apart from my papers and ribbon.


I tend to scrapbook when my joints allow so I will mainly complete the photo and blogging part of the course and then go back and scrap those parts of the prompts as and when.

  • During the course I will attempt to blog every day, or at least every other day.
  • Try not to ramble on too much!
  • Comment as much as I can on other people’s blogs.
  • Attempt to follow all the technical parts of the class…which I have done so far after a little trouble with a pesky subscribe button!

Finally, hello to anyone from the class who is reading this!
