    Awwww – I’m selfishly sad, but as a working mom and PTA president I get it. I work the paying job, the non paying job and the best job in the world and juggling them all rarely leaves me time for myself – let alone scrapbooking. Hence, *whispering* I’m a schmo. But I do try to make time to listen to the Roundtable (luckily I have a 4 month backlog to tide me over) and could listen to Stacy read the phone book or Ali spew amazing philosophical words or Noell’s practical reality, or Peppermint and Debbie’s amazing voices, and Ana (how’s Ana???) and Angie, and…well, you get it – any day of the week. Thank you for all you do – you’re simply the best!

    On hearing the news that you were going monthly, I have to admit that my first selfish thought was…”oh no, my washing is going to pile up for a MONTH before I get to fold it!!!!!” LOL! Actually it was more along the lines of that I am amazed that you have been able to keep up doing the Roundtable as a weekly thing for so long…the content and guests are always fantastic, so to do it week in, week out for 5 years…you are GOLD!!! So, although I will have to rethink my house work routine and pace myself listening to the older episodes, I whole-hearted support your move to monthly :) The older I get the more I realise things have to be sustainable and I am just grateful that you are going monthly rather than stopping altogether. Through the PRT I have been introduced to so many great scrapbookers and contributors in the industry that I didn’t know even existed…I’m looking forward to the next deep dive course too…have listened to the first one multiple times :) You guys are awesome.

    I understand but I can’t help feeling like this is the beginning of the end…. I think The Paperclipping Roundtable is part of what has kept this industry going and I worry the chain of events that may occur after this. Have you thought of a subscription-based podcast? You could add cost to the current subscription plan for the videos you make that would include added podcasts … I would happily pay to continue weekly (or more!) podcasts. You could also do a combination of maybe 1 free podcast a month and then offer pay for those that want more? Thank you so much for all that you have given us up until now and please consider some options for keeping it going! :)

    I’ve never commented before, but I want to add my voice to the discussion. I really enjoy the podcast, but I don’t have a ton of time to listen to it. I confess that I’m way behind on listening to PRT (like, aside from getting the notice to listen to this one, I’m back in 2013) and there are other podcasts that interest me as well. I listen to PRT once (as opposed to multiple times) and, honestly, the amount of content in my queue is overwhelming at times. I have considered giving up trying to make it through all of the episodes, but I just can’t quit you guys. :) Your announcement is a relief to me–I’ll be able to catch up, savor each one and in the end, PRT will be part of a content mix that I can keep up with and enjoy variety. Thank you for modeling work/life balance with your decision. I know that is a moving target and I admire your ability to evaluate what’s working and what isn’t and make course adjustments. Well done and keep up the good, wholehearted work!

  • I believe you! Ha ha! :)

    I just want to thank you, Noell and Izzy, for devoting so much of your time to sharing such quality content as this podcast–for free. What a gift it is. While I am certainly missing your weekly podcast episodes, I completely understand and respect your decision to put your family and personal life first. I hope this change has brought the freedom and stability you were looking for. I will eagerly await your next episode :)

    P.S. Considering how long it took me to actually get onto my computer to leave a comment, maybe it’s a good thing there’s so much time between episodes! Maybe I’ll get a chance to get in on the conversation more frequently, haha ;-)

    P.P.S. I also thought this episode was great, even though this comment isn’t really about its main content!!

    No surprise. I enjoyed this episode just as I’ve enjoyed everyone before this one. There was a question about how to keep things from falling out of side pockets without sealing them permanently. I came upon a great product that does just this. It’s Hook & Loop Tabs by Tomboy. It’s an extremely thin version of velcro. I recently did a wedding album in which I left pages for the couple to journal. I used the Hook and Loop Tabs to hide the journaling from others so the journaling remained private.
