Hi ladies!

Wookiemouse wasn't kidding when she said this week will be boring... We're organizing negatives. Luckily for me, I think I have just a few sets of negatives - pictures from the 90's, maybe... lol...


Tonight, I sucked it up and signed up for Camp Scrap & @ Home w/ Claudine on BPS. The rest of my summer will be devoted to being busy being creative. I'm finally starting to get back into the swing of things after being in school for two years and... well, we all know how life tends to get in the way of the things we want to do... I've decided to make a commitment to spend some time in my studio everyday and, for me, classes are a perfect way to "force" me to do just that. Besides, my studio is, more or less, organized now. I mean, there are some things I still want to do, but mostly Week 29 - decorating kind of things...

What are your scrapping plans for the summer?


wookiemouse's blog

original two peas thread


Question of the week: What is your "go-to camara"?

Mine's a little pink, I think, Sony digital (maybe 10mp) point-and-shoot. Nothing big. Nothing expensive - just something to get the job done. For as few pictures as we take around here these days, didn't want to spend alot of money on something that'd get very little use.


[will add links tomorrow, I promise]

Ah, an easy week for me. Got my negatives done more than 10 years ago.
When I was 12 I got my first camera, old one from my dad. So I have nagatives from 1982 til 2004. We went all digi that year, before that we had both for awile.
My negatives are in sheets in a binder, I choose to put all negatives of one film roll togheter in one pocket. I know it's probebly not the best way but now I only have one ringbinder instead of... eh... about 10!

I am not sure I even have negatives. I might have a few (from before I got the digital camera) but for the most part, we just scan our old pictures into the computer and save them that way if we want to reprint. We have our pictures backed up multiple ways so it seems ok for us.

For summer scrapping plans, I just hope to scrap some. I am off for the summer from the dance studio for like 6 weeks, so between all our normally scheduled activities, I will be happy to just get a couple of layouts done. I still need to work on a few of these week challenges to get my room in order. I am a little behind

My camera is a little pink kodak point and shoot. Perfect for me, as I just want decent pictures and am not very good with expensive equipment. Yeah the slr camera is great but I would end up dropping it or breaking it since I take it everywhere. I love that my little camera can just go in my purse and off I go.

Negatives all fit in a shoe box. I may try to put them in those archival sleeves, but still in the box.

My camera is a digital olympus point and shoot, a gift years back, so I did not pick it out, but it works for what I need.

crisann, Enjoy your classes! Sounds so good to hear that your studio is fairly organized and you are looking forward to the decorating part. That's me, too. I am admitting to being a little burned out on the organizing part.

I have no scrapping plans for the summer. Will vicariously enjoy hearing about the classes, but I will have more time for scrapping when fall comes.

Looking forward to the pretty part,


~june

Ok, I have negatives from the 70's. You know, I can't even see what's on them they're so small! I think I need to revist my photo organization again. LOL

Crisann, that class sounds like fun! I am going to challenge myself to create something artistic at least once a month. I think I need to get out of my rut, and maybe this will work. I'd love to take a class, but I tend to get side tracked, kwim?


QOTW: My go to camera is my Rebel. People expect me to have it, like an extra arm or something! I'd like to get something smaller, I need more pictures that are natural shots, not just posed. For some reason I think I need to pose everyone with my Rebel.

QOTW: you will always find my Canon A590 with me.

My negatives are all organised in binders. I have a few more to put away. Better get on that today. Yes, I still use film. *gasp*

Until 2 weeks ago my good camera was a manual SLR sadly the light meter died and the camera has been replaced. I want to get it fixed but not having any luck finding someone who can get parts for a 35 year old camera.

Anyways... my fun camera is a Fish Eye Camera so negatives are an ongoing thing. There aren't that many so just adding pages to the binder works. Eventually I might need a second binder.

pitje - are you looking for something decorative or functional? I saw This. I think it could be done with re-purposed items. Lids, needlework hoops... maybe even stencils if you could find them. might not be your style.

AvonPooh - your camera fears are exactly why I want my old camera fixed. Solid Steel and about half the size of a DSLR. Other great thing about it is no batteries.

Something very weird going on with the negative storage link. I agree pitje.

Negatives is still not working, GGRRR

slanted wall

Electricstuff thanks for the idea, I like it and will ponder over it.
Ordering is not an option, with shipping cost and all.
In the mean time more ideas are very welcome both decorative and functional. (I like options)

Pitje- Could you hang something from your ceiling or the top of the window area? You could hang those shoe bags or something for storage, or you could make some kind of custom screen like thing to cover the window when you want to keep the light off your papers and stuff. I don't know what your lighting in your room is like (where you wouldn't want to cover the window) but you could make some sort of fabric screen that could be rolled up when you want the window to shine. I hope you get what I am saying without pictures. A lot of people here in my neck of the woods use old window panes with the glass in them to paint on kinda like a "framed" picture. Just some ideas. I would look into what you can hang from the ceiling since the angle is awkward to use.

I could hang something from the ceiling (like avonpooh suggested) but then i still have these big with spaces that need something. The window has a sunblind and I bought new covering for it(that's white also, with some 'transparent' circles in it, it has a cream/light yellow sunblind wright now but that is so dark when it's closed.) Blue and brown are my other collors. could not find a nice blue one and brown makes the room to dark.)

So I'm still stuck with these 3 big white spaces... I need your help girls.

My negatives are stored in photo boxes w/ older pics and sorted by date. I use a Nikon 630 point & shoot. I got it for Christmas and am still trying to figure out all the buttons, lol.

PITJE: do you have a Cricut? you could do something w/ vinyl...a quote and some flowers or another decorative accent.

Hi, ladies!
It's my second day of vacation and after sleeping all first day, I'm back on (the) board. I've been missing out on a lot, I think, during my absence. I'll go clean off my work space today, then I'll spend some time catching up with you guys.

I'm so happy so many familiar people here

Now, negatives. I have a lot (I'm sure you're tired of my complaining), so I'm not busting through all negatives this week. I haven't any negatives for the last few years, but I used a film camera long after getting my first digital camera.

My go-to-camera right now is a Panasonic Lumix Panazonic Lumix TZ3 which I've had for a couple of years. I'm constantly thinking about getting a Canon DSLR, and/or a small pocket sized one. If I spend more time taking photos, I'll make a purchase, but right now I'm about the laziest photographer known to the scrapbooking world, so I can't justify the expense. That, and the fact that the Lumix takes decent photos.

Pitje - What if you hune a thin clothesline/string near the top of the slant, but under the window. Used that to display newer layouts or whatever?? You could stull put things on the ledge and use it as a shelf or whatever ...

I'm not even sure where my negatives are!! I seem to recall they're all in a box somewhere. Just don't know where that somewhere is Not planning on doing anything with those negatives in the near future. So I guess my week is done??

For the most part my negatives are in a shoe box, but a couple of years ago I started putting them in a binder( didn't get that finished)I did a bad thing many years ago, I threw out the envelopes after they were developed not realizing that the dates were on the envelope. so now I have to look at all of them over a light box to see the time frame so I can organize them better. Ugh! Another goal of mine is to make a digital copy of each so that all my photos are on disks or a external hard drive. Hence the scanner I bought.

QOTW: My go-to camera is a nikon cool-pix that I bought after selling two of my paintings.I was so excited to get a higher megapixel camera(of course shortly after cameras shot up with amount of megapixels very fast, making mine out-dated quickly)But I will always have the memory of selling the paintings (which was fairly new to me then)and getting the camera. I felt so independant being able to buy a large ticket item with money that my husband didn't work his tail off for. This was my own.

I just realized I didn't answer the QOTW.
We have an Olympus point and shoot which is the go-to camera. It fits into the pocket of my must have back pack when we go to parks or whatever.

We also have a Canon SLR that is bigger, bulkier and with 2 or 3 lenses that we take about 75% of the time as well.
