i was listening to the paperclipping roundtable podcast today.

the discussion totally blew my mind. i have been pondering these same issues over and over. thinking of where i am in my scrapping and where i want to be.

the big issues are:
space. i have none.
budget. i have none of that either.
scrapaddiction. i am over the paper craving. my used to be love of paper is just gone.fizzled

so where does that leave me in the grand scheme of things. the BIG PICTURE if you will?

a version of this:
totally AWESOME photo books.
GOD, i wish i had the extra $ to take her class.

or maybe this:
another idea i wish i had thought of:)
and i actually am implementing in my april/june shutter book, aka our life in picture vol.1

wishing to take this:
summer template class= AWESOME!

loving this idea and the freebies...the digital community is SO GENEROUS!

my go to place for the right amount of classical/whimsy:

i LOVE the idea of finished photobooks. no more page protectors. no more albums to buy. no more clunky books to look at. no more paper and no more mess:)

my new camera is begging to be used. the fear of having more images that i want to print is paralyzing. i have 2 folders full of pictures of my gorgeous new nephew and beautiful pics of my girls.
nevermind all the paperstuff i have left.

feeling the need to document, yet simplify. declutter, but still hold on to the memories.
any ideas?

i went through the similar issues-i paperscrapped for 11 years before going digi and it took me about 3 months to fully commit and stop buying paper. I print my layouts and put them in 3 ring binders with page protectors for now. They still take up space but i can get a lot digi layouts in an album than paper (i am showing the example on my blog this weekend). I am intrigued by photobooks but not crazy about their quality of the photos (i did 2, 1 at blurb and 1 at shutterfly-blurb was better by a mile).
