Not so many moons ago, I wrote two books on scrapbooking. For many of you, that’s actually how you know about me.
Clean & Simple Scrapbooking and the creatively titled Clean & Simple Scrapbooking: The Sequel, are largely considered the magnum opus of my career. (Okay, no one has actually said that. I said that. Just now.) But the fact is, they represent my memory keeping philosophy distilled into a collection of layouts and albums. They cover journaling, design, photography and ideology.
Published in 2004 and 2006 respectively, these books may feature much younger versions of me and my family as well as products long since off the store shelves, but they are as vital to how I create and approach this craft as ever. The fact is that I haven’t really changed my approach since I started back in 2002. This is what I really believe about the hobby.
Last week, when I was without a computer I decided to clean my office closet and I found four boxes of my books. I had purchased them when the publisher went out of business. I thought, “I’ll do something with these some day!” and then literally forgot I had them.
Today, I’m doing something with them. I’m adding them to my shop for purchase. Originally they sold for $19.99 and I will sell them for $16.99 and sign them for you. If you want a more personal note, tell me what you want me to say in the notes area when you purchase the book. I’ll write anything you like! I’m easy.
I have about 100 books total. After that, they really are gone, baby. (Well, you can buy them used on Amazon, too. I need to tell you that because I’ve seen them as low as .01 cents and as high as $42.)
I will be shipping them via Media Mail to save you money. I’m only shipping to U.S. customers at this time.
Maybe it’s high time I write a new book, huh? I’m sure layouts about menopause would shake this industry to its core.
