Scrapbooker's Dream and the Scrap Pink Campaign

Scrapbooker’s Dream joins nationwide Scrap Pink campaign to
benefit breast cancer research


McMurray, PA, September 1, 2009 - On Sept. 26 and 27, 2009, local scrapbooking enthusiasts will come together for the third annual Scrap Pink weekend, a fundraising event created by Scrapbooks etc.® to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Scrap Pink has already donated over $200,000 to breast cancer research.  Hosting a crop locally will be Scrapbooker's Dream, a scrapbooking shop located in McMurray, PA at 4067 Washington Road.

On Scrap Pink weekend, retailers will invite consumers to participate in an exciting in-store
crop, where scrapbookers will come together to make a difference. Consumers will pay to attend the crop, and $10 of this fee will be donated to support Komen's mission to find a cure for breast cancer through research, education, screening, and treatment. Sherri Clancy, owner of Scrapbooker's Dream, sees Scrap Pink as much more than just another fundraiser. "It is a chance to help make a huge difference to this cause." she says.

To ensure adequate space and supplies for participants, Clancy recommends that Scrapbookers call in advance of Scrap Pink weekend, although walk-ins are welcome, too.

To sign up for Scrap Pink or for more details about the local event, call 724-942-8951, or visit the store. Scrap Pink information is also available at scrappink.com.

Brainstorming, Mind Mapping, Curio

I use this really cool Mac OS X  (I mean, is there really anything better than a Mac?) software by Zengobi called Curio.  While it lacks many of the things I would like to see in such an application--you really can't go by what I write here because what I want hasn't yet been imagined, except by me of course and I am too lazy to do anything about it--it has great potential and I think that if Zengobi has the vision it can become even more powerful which is really cool.

Part of what it gives you is mind mapping, but unlike mind mapping tools that are all about just mind mapping, Curio gives you a blank canvas onto which you can drop any kind of resource such as images, documents, web pages, etc.  And you can organize all of these sorts of things as mind maps or structured lists.  Or you don't need to do that at all.  You can just be free to layout everything randomly.



It is also a project management application, but it looks nothing like any project management software.  Th…

OS X Yosemite: Breathing new Life into my Old, Faithful Companion

So the other day I wrote that my MacBook seemed to run a little slower and use more memory.  What's strange is now that I've been using it, it's actually running noticeably faster.  It still takes up more memory, but not that much more.  It's like Yosemite has breathed new life into my aging companion.  There is probably something I can do about the memory, too.  What my Mac really needs is more space on the hard drive.  I have some serious cleaning to do.

Quilling and Chilling

Perhaps it's because I own a scrapbooking and papercraft store.  Perhaps it is the artist within.  Perhaps it's sheer boredom as I suffer this long period of employment drought.  But whatever it is, I've decided to learn more about papercrafts and especially something called quilling or paper filigree.

I'm not quite sure why I find fascination in such things.  I am a computer geek, programmer, software developer, etc.  It must go back to my childhood and my fascination with creating arts and crafts.  As a budding artist my bud was snipped from the tree of art, and I never did pursue it. But I love color.  I love how to mix it to create new colors, how to place complimentary colors together, how to match and blend and create things with color.

The tools and the techniques of quilling are deceptively simple.  I say deceptively because although it appears at first that you are simply rolling paper around a slotted rod, forming the rolled paper into one of a few basic shapes…
