Tomorrow (Friday) at 6pm London time / noon US Central time, I'll be here for an hour (at least) of scrappy chat. We can talk Christmas, scrapping, products, Glitter Girl adventures... whatever you fancy. I'd love for you to stop by and say hello! I might even have something for someone to win.

I know there's never a time that works for all of us at once, so I just wanted to start this thread today so if you can't join in tomorrow but had a question you wanted added to the Q&A, you can post it here and I'll do my best to get it answered in the chat thread. (Please not questions you're requesting for a Glitter Girl video, etc - things I can answer in a message board post. Cool?)

I hope some of you can make it tomorrow!!! Happy almost Friday!

How awesome. I have to work so I will miss the chat but do have a question. How do you keep yourself motivated to do something scrappy/creative every day? I would love to try to do something scrappy related everyday but just can't keep the interest/ambition to do so.

Shimelle...Do you have any idea how many LO's you have completed?...Also how many albums? What kind of adhesive do you use that allows you to so freely lift it when you need to.

Hi Shimelle,

Will we see a tour of your scrap space in your new house? Would love to see it!

Sit. Stay. Pea!

All I can think of if this right now:

What do you love the most about Christmas in London?

Have fun.... I can't be here tomorrow.

How exciting! Not sure if I will be available, but I would like to ask a question.
I am presently making a special album all about one subject. Don't have a scrap room, Or even a dedicated space, so I have all the supplies gathered for it in a large, very large, container. It's going to be a big album, I have 120 photos printed, some will be on LOs, others in divided page protectors. I have been working on it & nothing else...efficient because supplies are all gathered & out.
Boring as all get out though!
I noticed that you are working on a Harry Potter album, and then I'll see some of your beautiful wedding photo LOs, newly done, I think...and then some vaca photos. Seems as though you bounce between subjects/albums & then insert them in the appropriate album, rather than working on one album start to finish. Is that correct? If so, how do keep track of your supplies for that particular album over a period of time? Do you keep all those supplies segregated? or do you always change supplies from LO to LO except for the occasional item for continuity?
Thanks so much, I have been hoping to ask you this for awhile!

Oooo! I will be home waiting for my new washer and dryer to be delivered between 12-4 central time. I won't mind if they don't get here right at 12.

Enjoy your chatting with GG, Peas (and enjoy the Peas, Shimelle!) For once the timing would have worked in my favour as I am 2 hours ahead of London, however, I will be at the Theatre. I will read you all later

Cool, I'll try to be around. I'm so glad you gave us central time because I probably would have never guessed it right

Well, it will be my lunch time at work so maybe I can take a break! That is if I ever quit scrapping tonight and go to bed!

5am sydney time, im not sure whether i will be up or not, I do have a ? though -
Do you ever find there is a disparity between what you enjoy as a creative process and what you aesthetically find pleasing or perhaps even what you think would most effectively meet the outcome you want in your album? If you do, how do you address that in your own crafting, how do you prioritise the process of creating against the final outcome that you produce? I hope the question is clear. I'll try to be here to be part of the chat, I love your chats!

@nanna2five i used this website to figure out the times:

I will be asleep during the chat because I work nights. Thanks so much for giving of your time to answer questions that we have!!! Will you ever consider doing a paid class about two page layouts? I only ever scrap 2 pages and a lot of people are only doing 1. It's hard for me to convert layouts from one pages to two pages. Or do you have any general tips/tricks about using a one page sketch or idea and converting it to two. Thanks!! !!!

Thanks so much Shimelle! Hoping I can make it today!

Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

@ Nanna2five: Noon Central is 1pm Eastern.

Where is the chat taking place? Here on the boards or is there a special chat room?

No special chat room - there will be a new thread opened here on the board for the chat. Nice and easy!

See you soon! About 90 minutes from now.
