Thank you. Yes, I'm considering it. I have a bunch of free tutorials and a series on getting started with digital scrapbooking on my blog which is why I haven't done it in the past. You can access that info here: http://aliedwards.com/2010/01/getting-started-digital-scrapbooking.html

I have to agree!

Awwwe, I am happy for both of you to be able to say this kind of thing! Parenting is hard! And seems like it gets harder each year with our society and technology and just trying to find balance in life.

I am blessed with great parents too, and am humbled by being a parent every single day! I know you have some added challenges with Simon, but again, when it's all said and done, I bet you wouldn't change a thing, because if you're like me, then you know those special needs actually make you a better person for having to navigate them with your child and be an advocate.
I always tell people that all my kids have special needs. It's true- they're all different! Just one has extra special needs that make us all better for getting to be a part of.

I sooo second that Marianne!!!
It sounds silly to say that about someone you've never met, but Ali, you have inspired me in ways no one else has! Thank you ;D

So another question, Instagram has really popularized the everyday kind of photo that you've featured so well in all your work, what are your feelings about posting there?

I'm definitely a fan.

I think part of it for me is it's the one place I have a limited number of people I follow. When I go on there I'm seeing just my friends or the people's photos I want to see - I guess it's more personal for me. I often go on there at the end of the day and scroll back over my family and close friends images to see what's up.

Facebook isn't like that for me (I friend everyone who friends me on my personal page, with some exceptions).

Hey, it worked. Two things - I agree with the sentiment about the importance of what we do. I questioned the decision to scrapbook about five years in. Then I became ill and realized the importance of my books - no one I love would ever have to wonder how much they mattered to me.

I just want to say thanks for taking your time to be here and chat with all of us. It IS a busy time and you are busier than most. So we all appreciate that you would share and answer questions and join us for our crop!

What are you excited to do most in 2014? Or don't you have that figured out yet. I wish you an amazing year, Ali!

Second thing, being an educator, I need time to both plan and save up for big trips. Is there any decision about next years trip Ali?

Agree - and that's why the words are so important to me. I write how much I love people (especially my kids), how much they mean to me over and over again in case anyone has any doubts LOL.

Thanks Jody :).

I think I'm most excited about 2014 as a year to continue moving forward. I've been putting a lot of things in place this year behind the scenes - professionally, personally, emotionally - and I hope to actually see the fruits of that work in the next year.
