I was completely shocked the other day when I tried to copy something to my computer and it rejected it because I didn’t have enough room on it?! WHAT? This laptop is HUGE with a dual core processor, and I bought it specifically for digital scrapping. It turns out, my digital supply obsession has gotten out of control! I have over 30 GB of digital supplies alone.

That’s not counting completed layouts that I’m waiting to print. Then, on top of that I have 12 GB of music. (That’s my other obsession.) I have a lot of other junk on here too. It’s ridiculous!

I’ve embarked on a massive deleting, tagging, and organizing mission. It’s taking up a lot of my time, but it’s going to all be worth it in the end. I’ll be able to find things much quicker. I’m pretty sure that Santa Claus is going to have to bring me an external hard drive for Christmas because I don’t picture myself not buying digital supplies anymore.

I have also been scrapbooking, but then I’m sure you already knew that! I have quite a few layouts to share.


I can feel my Mom cringing right now. Sorry Mom! It's a darling photo!

Well you already know I love your layouts!! So I won't comment again but the job of deleting stuff on your computer? that is a job, I have done the same thing before..I try to empty my digi supplies on to disc now as soon as I see my puter getting full!!
