Topics I've Started

Hi From North Carolina

30 May 2009 - 09:18 AM

I am new to using message boards so I hope to not make many mistakes. I guess I can start out tell you a little about myself.

I am originally from the GREAT STATE of TEXAS - yes I am VERY proud of that. I now live in Charlotte, NC. I am married and have one child a girl who is 18, she just completed her first year of college at UNCC. I am 47 and recently one of the many unemployed (compny upgraded and my position was eliminated).

I love doing a variety of crafts (sewing, jewerly making, knitting) but I get the most rewards (personally and from friends and family) from digitally scrapbooking. I always wanted to do scrapbooking (between my family and my husbands family we have boxes of pictures) but found paper scrapbooking to be expensive and required alot of space, both for working on layouts and storage. So I started digitally scrapbooking and fell in love. I use Photoshop Elements 7 (my birthday present from my hubby). A friend of mine and many ladies from my church paper scrap and we have crops at the church and eachothers homes and I am always amused at their reactions when asked "How much space do I need?" and I reply "all I need is an eletrical outlet."

I would like to start my own home business and figured that there must be some way to make money using digital scrapbooking. If anyone knows of or has any ideas please let me know, I have an idea but not sure how to get started.
