This lovely  scrapbook kit makes it easy to put together beautiful pages. In this first page I blended a photo from my mother-in-law’s collection (she’s the young girl on the right) with one of the kit’s grungy background and clustered elements from the kit on opposite corners.

Summer Memories

My next page was inspired by one of the kit’s elements. The little photo of the girl and puppy reminded me of the photos of my mother-in-law and her dog named “Sport” so I dug some of the photos and scanned them for this page for her scrapbook:

A Dog Named Sport

I’m making the jump from Drupal to WordPress before I get too far into adding posts. I jumped from WordPress to Drupal over a year ago because I was more familiar with Drupal but it seems that every time I see a neat module/widget, they’re only available for WordPress. Don’t get me wrong, Drupal is quite powerful but my needs are simple and simple needs are easier under WordPress.

The only problem I’m facing now is cleaning up my old data. It was easy to go from WordPress to Drupal but going from Drupal to WordPress, not so easy on the cheap but doable.  Since I have less than 200 entries to deal with I just created a XML stream of my entries and imported them into WordPress as drafts using a widget. All I need to do now is go through and plug in the missing pieces. I could have paid for a premium version of the widget I used  to include the images but I don’t have enough entires to make it worth while. Besides, this will be a good exercise in validating and making sure everything looks right.

So every post later than this  is either out of WordPress , Marsedit, or a Widget to go from Lightroom to WordPress (the main reason for switching :-)

About me…

Welcome to my little corner of obsessions and messes

From scrapbooking to sewing to photography and many combinations, I hope to share what I've discovered and am discovering along the way. I am new on this journey and have my fingers in too many projects, including building content on this site.

So bear with me while I work things out and try and make the most of this bit of time...
