I said rarely. He wanted to know why. My answer was that we do not take a lot of photos any more, or I do not have access to some of those we do take. We go to the same places again and again. The past couple of years, we have not really had a vacation. DH has been promising to send me photos from his phone and camera, but still hasn't. I hate to scrapbook then get better photos later. He promised to send them to me. We'll see.

I still need to print off pictures. I have a lot, but I haven't taken the time to get them ready to print.

I have pictures that I haven't scrapped, too. I really need to sit down and start planning some pages.

I have only made a couple of pages in months and months.  It was hard getting back into it after I moved back home, then I changed my room around, then I changed it again.  It still doesn't feel right to me.  I know that sounds weird, but I just used to walk in and feel like "aaaahhhhh."  Now it is more like ugh.  Then we are so busy at work, so when I go home, I just read then go to bed.  Scrapbooking just feels hard right at the moment, if that makes sense.  The hugest hurdle though is the same as you guys -- printing pics!  My Selphy stopped working.  I bought the only photo printer I could afford at that time and, it prints weird, and even when it prints correctly, the black portions of a photo have this weird hue.  So, then I think I should take the time to upload some photos to Persnickety Prints and just order them, but I only think of that at the moment that I want to scrap! LOL  Now that I typed that all out, I am motivated to go home and upload photos!

It also helps that this past weekend, I took a long weekend in Presque Isle, Erie, PA.  It was very relaxing and restorative.  It was cold and gray and rainy with gale force wind warnings, but, I did get pics!

Patti, I get the room not feeling right. If I'm not comfortable in my space. I don't want to be there. Right now, my room is the best it has ever been comfortwise.

Not having photos printed and on hand was one reason that I switched to digital. On the other hand, I can't tell you the last time I printed my digital pages. I guess it's six on one hand and half a dozen on the other. (I use Persnickety Prints and love them.)

Another big issue for me is finding time for multiple hobbies. Too many things to make. So little time.
