Photo Albums ???

I've been thinking as I transfer photos from boxes to CM safe albums (naked albums). I'm now at June 9, 1985 - the day Bre entered the world...so 23 1/2 years to go...... Hey that means I've finished 22 years. ::snort::

I want to use up all my CM albums but then I'm thinking of changing.....

Keep the naked CM albums until I run out (probably about when we switched to digital photos)

At that point I planned on switching to a hybrid/digital scrapping style. Those I can work on in Japan....BUT I got to wondering.....do you think I'll find a place to PRINT 12 x 12 digital layouts in Japan? I may go to 8 x 11....

I saw Lois' albums and she has them in page protectors and nice notebooks....certainly cheaper than buying CM albums....and easy to print at home or at any photo shop.... Of course they wouldn't all be the same then...naked albums until 1990's, a few years of highly decorated scrapbooks, more naked albums, then 8 x 11 digital albums. I don't know if I can handle that....I'm the one with 28 matching, 3 ring magnetic albums....it always must match. What is God doing? First my curriculum being 1/2 classic and 1/2 redesign and now my albums....

OK - off to search for winter wear on clearance....and work on more photos....and go through a few more closets...

I believe Artscow is out of Hong Kong. I'm just not sure what the shipping costs would be. You would be overseas, yet don't you keep a "US" address since you're military?

Yes, DeEtta will have a US mailing address. The thing is there are companies that won't ship to APO addresses either a)because they don't use the USPS for their shipping or b) they don't want to be bothered with the necessary customs forms.... and if companies will ship, some will charge higher rates just because of the customs form

Thanks, Jen....I'll check out Artscow. We will have an APO which will make life SOOOO much easier than it was when we were MK's...much cheaper for others to ship things to us and the internet will make things nice too.

I was hoping to find a local place to print things....but maybe it will be time for me to have layouts printed online. ::snort:: Thanks for the suggestion!

DeEtta,

You could just save layouts to be printed when you get home, too. Honestly, we enjoy looking at things on the computer as much as we do looking at an album... sometimes even more so... maybe we're just weird that way.

Sis:

Guess you get the matching thing from me. Believe me it is no longer much of a part of my life. I just gave up and etc.

I am able though to still have thing balanced. :):):)
