I just returned from a two day scrapbooking retreat with 11 girlfriends. What a fantastic getaway! I'll be sure to post some pics later. I'm busy weeding through an e-mail box that is absolutely stuffed to the gills. I've received a number of e-mails about the following bits of news:
- Scrapbook Answers Magazine To Cease Publication. Bummer!! This is one of my favorite scrapbooking magazines. To refresh your memory, Scrapbook Answers is the shiny magazine that comes with a CD-Rom chock full of ideas & fonts. Apparently, it was too expensive to publish with the CD-Rom & it was not profitable. For more information, see here. Subscribers will receive refunds on their remaining subscriptions.
- Lasting Impressions Guru Lorie Jacobs Passed Away on October 3rd. If you've ever been to a scrapbook expo, you've seen Lorie Jacobs. Her booth would always draw crowds of ooh-ers & aah-ers as she dazzled us with her brass stencil skills. Years ago at a scrapbook expo in Southern California she wowed me enough to convince me to drop some serious cash on over twenty stencils that I JUST HAD TO HAVE. I even bought her video. She really knew her stuff. Lorie will be sorely missed in the rubber stamping/scrapbooking community.
- Cami's Paperie now at 70% off! According to their e-mail, this is their last week. They still have a ton of paper & ink pads. At 70% off, you just can't pass it up! If you have reserved/paid for any of the furnishings, they must be picked up by this Wednesday, October 11th, at 4:00 p.m. The store doors will be forever closed by the end of this week. It is a sad week for the D.C. area.
