It is time to address my problem.

No need to see a specialist. I just know. To state the fact: I am an addict.
There is no cure.
Known symptoms include: -
  • photos on my desk
  • hours spent browsing galleries
  • dishes in the sink
  • several open windows (computer) with unfinished layouts
  • no grocery shopping done (sometimes)
  • photos on the floor
  • I'd rather not talk about money spent for digital kits...
I'm addicted to digital scrapping. And it makes me extremely happy.

It all started by my recent trips down the memory lane. I was buying vintage picture frames almost in bulk, then I realized: there is not enough of tables and shelfs for those!
Second major factor was my twins' upcoming 18th birthday and my desire to sum-up theirs 18 years of life with us and then to send them somewhere to start lives on their own...... just kidding!

Maybe I had certain aptness - given my singing career ( lead alto in a choir, singing competitions, etc) and my not-so-bad drawing skills - maybe not.
But I always admired art and nice things around ...

After four months of learning and scrapping, I found my home at Pixel Canvas, a store created by Vinnie Pearce. A beautiful, warm place full of inspiration and encouragement, and a great community.
PC is closing today. Hopefully, this wonderful bunch of other addicts will stay together and keep nourishing this addiction.
