What makes a good site to hang out at?
I love this photo! Well...mostly. I hate that it shows how fat I really am, but I love that it shows me with my best friend in the whole world, William. :)
Anyway...on to the subject at hand. Internet communities. Interesting places, each with a dynamic of it's own.
Started at "Our Creative Companion". Let's just say that it didn't work out and leave it at that. There are still some hard feelings, I think, on both sides.
Kat started the Scrapbook Jungle, and it was home for 4 years. Was a wonderful community, until it got close to the end, and people started leaving. We tried so hard to revive it, and ended up getting burned out. Of course, we didn't have any help at all from the owner...Abby (long story, but she got the place from Kat..FREE). Water under the bridge.
So I ventured over to Scrap That Moment. Looked like a friendly, wonderful place to hang out. And it was, for awhile. Until it came to light that the owner is slightly narcissistic. Well...maybe a bit more than "slightly". And maybe just a tad.... well...nuff said. It turned out to not be the place for me, even tho there are still people there that I like, very much! Can't recommend hanging out there tho.
My new hangout? Scrapbook Chalet! Check it out. Many of the ladies that I met at STM are now there at the Chalet. I LOVE IT! It's fun, it's friendly, and it's fast paced. I'm a bit embarrassed to post any of my layouts tho...that gallery is simply intimidating! The talent there ROCKS, and my slapped together layouts just don't measure up. You can't ask for better inspiration tho, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from these awesome scrappers!
Also need to say that it's good to be hooked up with Kat again! :) We have such fun together!
