So here's my issue. I work full time and sit at a computer from 8:00am till who knows when. Then when I get home, I have no desire to sit back down at my computer and scrapbook. This is so frustrating. I really want to scrapbook in the evenings but have no desire. Any one else have this problem? Any suggestions on how I could shake this funk?

Oh, I am definitely in the same boat. I work on a computer all day, and then I am just tired at night and a little unenthusiastic about sitting in front of a screen some more. The only way that I have found to keep motivated is that I started bringing my laptop to work, and I use my lunch hour to scrap. I am already staring at a screen so somehow, scrapping at lunchtime is actually a nice change as to the type of project I am staring at. The people I work with all know I won't ever go out to lunch because I am scrapping! Then, when I get home I often want to keep working on whatever that day's project was.

I remember reading in a scrapping magazine (can't remember which one) where someone bought bed risers for the table in their scrapping room so that it was at standing height. I think she also had a stool for when her legs got tired and wanted to sit.
Is sitting your main problem, or just fatigue at night that's getting in your way? I wasn't sure if it was one or the other, or both!

Can you get up 15-30 minutes earlier in the AM and digi scrap? When I worked, I had to type case notes every day about 20 people. I used to digi scrap for a few minutes in the morning before work. It was "my" time. Just remember to set a timer.
Or, if you can't get up early, why not do activities that do not involve a computer for _________ amount of time when you get home. Then, set a timer for 15-30 minutes. Sit down and digi. Move away from the computer when the timer goes off.

Weather-permitting (and obviously a better choice for the summer months), I loved taking my laptop outside to scrap at the patio table. Sure, still sitting down, but the change of scenery made it different somehow.
