    Another great show. Thanks again for providing all this great information. It gives me something to look forwrd to on Wednedays.

  • marcy

    Loved the content!! Each show is better than the previous..

  • Debra Piercey

    I signed up to be the first 100 to preview the roundtable. And while I liked it, I wasn't blown away because I'm a visual person & love your videos. But I have to say I have to eat my words. I put them on my MP3 player and listen to them while I'm doing housework. They are very entertaining and informative. Love your guest speakers. And you and Izzy are adorable! Thanks for doing these. I hope you get a BIG sponser!

    Debra,

    That's so nice of you! And thanks for calling us cute. :-)

    All the best,

    Izzy

    Is that the same Ana Cabrera that used to be with Scrapbook Answers? She is hilarious! Thanks for the show I always learn something and laugh a bit too. I like that you are informative but don't take yourselves too seriously. I wish I could see all of you, but it is easy to just put this on the ipod and listen when working out or cleaning the house.

    What about doing all the questions at the end, I kindly like to suggest that because it would be great to get to the topic right away, the intros are always so long that I never get to stay and I leave as it gets a bit boring, unfortunately I have short periods to listen and it is taken few really precious minutes every time…… So let's say if at least I can only dedicate 5 minutes and we get to the point quickly. I would have got something different instead. My suggestion.
    Thanks.

    Hi, Ann. You could let it download and FF into the show a bit. But these are
    discussions and we don't intend to get to the point within five minutes for
    even the meaty part. My video tutorials are intended to be that way: quick
    and to the point in about 5 minutes. With the Roundtable, we're offering
    something totally different. It's friends talking together, discovering
    together. It's something people can listen to while they're scrapbooking,
    cleaning, cooking, driving, etc. If that isn't for you, though, you might
    just prefer sticking with the Paperclipping videos.

    Thank you for the input, though. We always listen to the feedback we get.
    :)

    I am one of those scrappers overwhelmed by the stuff that I have (I used to be a consultant for one of the companies). I loved the discussion about finding what you love to keep and getting rid of everything else. I am actually in the process of this, having cleared out my space and only returning what I love into my space. I just don't know what to do with the stuff that I don't want. Do you have any suggestions of where I can donate the items that I do not want to keep? Thanks for a great show.

    Hi just wanted to say that PRT 06 is not showing up on itunes.

  • http://www.paperclipping.com Noell

    I will have a guest at the beginning of Paperclipping Live who will be
    giving a great recommendation for who you can donate too. The show is on
    Tuesday night at 5:30 PST, 8:30 EST (it's live, but I also record it).

    In addition to my guests recommendations, I know elementary and preschools
    are happy to take scrapbook items. :)

  • http://www.paperclipping.com Noell

    Thanks for listening on iTunes, Yumi! We need a good chunk of the audience
    to do that so the show will continue to grow — so we can continue to
    produce it.

    Izzy and I have both found and listened to this episode from iTunes, so it
    just hasn't shown up on yours for some reason. Did you hit the refresh
    button at the bottom of the iTunes screen? If that didn't work, try going to
    the Roundtable page in the store and click the “get” button. Sometimes with
    other podcasts I have had to unsubscribe and then resubscribe b/c of a weird
    bug, but that is rare.

  • thekkrew

    I just finished listening while making my daughter's birthday invitations. You all do such a fantastic job, with valuable information/topics, as well as the humor! Thank you for all you do…looking forward to each weekly episode.

  • http://www.yumigaerum.blogspot.com/ Yumi

    Thank you for the help. I didn't know about that button. It's the first time I had to do that. I usaualy shows up. Thank you for such a great show.

  • http://www.yumigjaerum.blogspot.com/ Yumi

    sorry about the spelling. It should say, The new episode usually shows up automatic.

  • TereAzua

    I loved the show. I also listen it while doing housework, or scrapping, like yesterday!
    LOVE Ana Cabrera, she is a very nice lady. I think she has the gift of making people smile or literally LOL!!!

    Great segment. I love how you do your product picks and would like to make a product suggestion for your panel members to try out. It's called Simple Stories and it's by MemoryWorks. Here is a link to the website to check it out. http://simplestories.typepad.com/ It simplifies the way you scrapbook – you can create so many more pages in a very short amount of time.

  • Kim Strother

    I didn't know it would help you to listen to these from the iTunes site. I would be happy to do this as I'm sure many people would. Maybe you should put a little note about that!!

  • http://www.paperclipping.com Noell

    Thank you, Kim! We've been meaning to mention it again in the episodes but
    keep forgetting. I need to make a note of it…

    I was listening to the show today and I have to say that I really relate to Carole's problem of buying stuff at the store for an idea for a project and then forgetting all about it.

    What has helped me immeasurably is an Idea Book. I use this book to write about and also to help design ideas that come into my head during the day. I actually have two of them, I have a small one that I keep in my purse or at hand and a bigger one, where I can sketch things out, and add sample pieces of paper and brainstorm journalling.

    This has helped me so much with my project management. By no means do I ever get around to completing all my ideas, but the ones that really resonate and don't fade away definitely stand out and get noticed more. I don't forget as much and I feel happier when I can realize so many more ideas that actually turn into projects.

  • Lisa

    I had… hmm… a small “issue” with the idea of purging my stash (only if I feel I need to, I know, but either way it's throwing money out the door) and then hearing about a fab new camera that's the better part of $1K. I've been listening since the beginning, incl the most recent episodes, and I agree with some of the other commenters that maybe a little more “real world” perspective would be good. I know the whole idea is for scrapbookers in the business to sit around and shoot the breeze, but sometimes, sweet as you are, I can't relate to you at all.

    When listening to Roundtable #4 and you touched on the subject in the list of reasons why people do not scrapbook… there was the I am not organized, I immediately thought of Wendy and Abby's book, which I have and my room at home is very organized thanks to their video which I got from CKMedia. It helps to refer to it from time to time for our shops' appearance as well! I was so glad you got Abby as a guest! Great show once again!

    What a fantastic topic! Having only discovered the PRT in Jan of 2011 I have only just got to this one!  I have a little group of students that shop from my stash regularly and, of course, accumulate their own and the ‘stuff’ is often a roadblock to getting the story told.  The game changer for me was getting back to the question of why do I scrap? Some people scrap because they like the stuff and it furnishes a great excuse to buy pretty stuff and maybe use it – power to them. I scrap to tell the story – that is more important than the stuff and since I worked that out my pages are much simpler and my cupboards a bit emptier.

    We, like Ali, have a spot in the house where things that are going live. We call it the ‘departure lounge’ and it gets used for toys, clothes, scrap supplies, books and everything thing else. It works well for my boys – we put things in the departure lounge together and if they aren’t missed in a couple of months then they get donated.

    We use freecycle.org to manage the exits from the departure lounge. Its a great organisation that aims to keep things out of landfill. You post what you want to get rid of (it must be for free, no money, no swapping) and those who want it reply. The fun part is choosing who to give it to from those replies – I have sent excess supplies to women’s shelters, church groups, retirement villages and craft groups. The absolute best part is that they come and collect it from the house, no driving all over the place – and its free. I highly recommend you check it out in your local area – it operates globally.

    Can’t wait to see what I discover on my journey back in PRT time – I am learning so much. Thanks to you all :)
