This is an embarrassing confession.
I went to the local camera store a few weeks ago and asked for a camera with film.
Not the big lens professional looking film camera. Rather, the little $25 camera where you just stick in a roll of film and take it to be developed and use the pictures that you want kind of film camera.
I have been a scrapbooker. I love it. I have every moment of The Life of The Princess documented. Well, every minute until my film camera died. 2 years ago.
I've tried 3 different digital cameras. I don't like them. I don't like them at all. I don't understand them. I don't see the efficiency of looking at them on my computer and then getting that card thing to the store and all that. I know it is supposed to be simple. Not for me.
So. I've just purchased digital camera number 4. I had a little lesson at the camera store. (This is after the humiliation of the camera store lady saying, "Um. We don't sell cameras with film anymore." Whatever, lady. You should.) I think I can maybe do this camera. I am feeling almost confident.
This camera has caused me to believe that digital scrapbooking may be the end to all of my troubles. Maybe. I don't understand it at all. I have no idea how it works. But I think it is for me.
I've got 4 gazillion pictures stuck on some little card that has been through 2 years and 3 cameras of pictures. The thought of preserving my memories and doing the whole thing on the computer and never having to deal with that scary kiosk at Wal-Mart sounds pretty great. But I still don't know where to start.
If you can give poor me any suggestions on where to begin this digital scrapbooking stuff, I'd be so grateful. And The Life of The Princess could be documented past the 2nd grade.
