Digital scrapbooking is pretty cool and the use of magic disks for scrapbooking can make it a little easier to be organized since you would be organizing the digital scrapbooking way. Digital scrapbooking is becoming very popular and useful. However, not everyone is using technology to their benefit.
Have you become aware of the scrapbooking million products that seem to be obtainable online? Scrapbooking is an enormous hobby for all ages. Scrapbooking being enjoyment to people from all over the world from scrapbooking Gainesville to scrapbooking Edmundston to even scrapbooking Oakville Ontario. Marion Ohio scrapbook scrapbooking seems to be a hot source of scrapbooking. No matter where people have their homes, they enjoy scrapbooking.
For the greatest use of space, you will want to store your commonly used tools and supplies in close proximity to your prime workspace. A scrapbooking scissors carousel is a nice container to hold all your scissors you frequently use. Now is the time to look around at all areas above, below, and to both sides of where you plan to do your work. Maybe a used scrapbooking tote would come be useful in providing storage for some of your supplies. Be creative; imagine where tables, cabinets, shelves, cabinets, or even carts can be place for efficiency.

Kelly Meaux scrapbooking offers motivating scrapbooking ideals and supplies. Free scrapbooking Christmas paper piecing patterns are always popular and available on the web. Lots of folks enjoy purple scrapbooking pages, multi-color pages and even solid color scrapbooking paper. What do all these have in common? All of these need to be stored somewhere. Shelves are very practical for storing your scrapbook paper.
When buying shelves to use to organize your scrapbooking and poems, think white and pre-cut. The majority of the major discount home improvement stores have the pre-cut and white shelves available in different depths and lengths. You don’t have to be a real handyman to put them up. Many people prefer white since they usually match just about anything but they also come in a wood stain or even plain. Personally I would go with the pre-colored or pre-stained so that you can start to put them up as soon as you get home. The plain color allows you to stain with your own color. Image your shimmer paper for scrapbooking and even discounted scrapbooking paper looking pretty nice in their proper place on your new shelf. See how easy it is to start being organized!
Whether scrapbooking jourmaling is your passion or you need a scrapbooking getaways PA, this hobby requires you to be organized. I suppose because it is fun, memories are being shaped and stored in a nice presentation package to future generation, scrapbooking is a great hobby.

A Picture Paints a Thousand Words

The Church at Brockham

Beautiful Brockham at any time of Day or Month or Year. This beautiful picture for anybody who knows the village of Brockham just a couple of miles from Dorking along the A25 is the beautiful old Church by the green. Brockham in my opinion is very special especially in Surrey for its annual bonfire celebrations on the green where the villagers work tirelessly for many months  to build a bonfire many feet high and seat the guy at the top and let off the most dazzling picturesque, loud and exciting Firework display in all of Surrey.

 If you haven't been there haven't seen it experienced it then yes you have missed out on an Awesome event.

Now let me let you in to another secret Brockham Church on any Sunday is full of people enjoying a most varied selection of Tea and cakes i should know i frequently cycle in from Westcott to enjoy a wonderful afternoon tea. Unlike this picture which reflects the peace tranquility and absence of people the Tea event  attracts many and is well worth a visit when your passing on a Sunday afternoon, by Car Foot or Cycle, it doesn't care.

Brockham is popular all times of the year and is rarely see without people one of the reasons i admire the beauty of this picture.

Not the old windmill in old Amsterdam but Reigate Heath

Will our Supermarket Town become just another supermarket town?

So what’s the new issue in Dorking?

Perhaps it’s the same as in your Town today the usual debate which supermarket is going to take over the next piece of unused land.

  •  Is it  going to be Sainsbury’s or Morrison’s or Tesco or Liddle?
  • Do we need another Supermarket in our Town?
  • Haven’t we got enough already?
  • Where do people park?
  • What’s the future for our Town?
This leaflet below reflects the burning question. Perhaps the question should be when will we have enough supermarkets in our Towns, in our Country? Will there be enough food left if we keep on building? Then there is the amenities the costs to local and rural communities the wildlife and the destruction of our heritage and history.

Now everybody’s got to eat I know but it affects the beauty, the history, the amenities and all too often money speaks with sufficient financial muscle these companies can bulldoze their ideas and plan through the local councils and planning departments as they have the clout and muscle to wear down the opposition. So where does it end?

I feel it’s important to view the local issues good and bad as my site is all about the Old and the beautiful and by awareness and thoughts we might find logical practical and fair solutions as we begin to answer and unravel these key questions
An example of how this affects the amenities and rural issues just see below

If you have any comment suggestions then please get in touch, or link up to the websites dealing with these issues.
