Speaking on the Paperclipping Roundtable


Just for your entertainment dear friends here is a photo of me looking slightly crazed in my headphones just before I went 'on air". 

A few of you may have heard of the Paperclipping site and in particular the audio roundtable discussions that Noell hosts about scrapbooking. I had come across them a few times and when there were scrapbookers I knew about I tuned in.

Fast forward to last week and the lovely Ruth had noticed a post from Shimelle on Facebook asking on Noell's behalf for students who scrapbook. By the time I had found the post on Facebook both Shimelle and another friend had suggested me which was very flattering and maybe also a testament to the fact that student scrappers are still in the minority!

Fast forward to a few days ago when I received an email from Noell asking me if I wanted to participate in this weeks recording of the show along with her, Natalie Parker and you guessed it, Shimelle Laine. I nearly fell off my chair.

So Yesterday evening I strapped on my headphones, found my few scribbled notes and settled down to an hour and half of fun. Chatting on the roundtable was such a joy. All of the guests were friendly and excited about scrapbooking their student days and there was so much to talk about. The time simply few. As well as talk about project life I also got to plug the 'time for tea' meme which was such an opportunity.

And you know the best thing...I got to tell Shimelle that I started this little blog through her course. Things have come full circle.

So if you would like to hear me sound very British and a tad awkward but also chat excitably about uni, which is what I do here nearly every day, hop on over to the paperclipping blog!

Thank you so much Ruth for making me aware of this and thank you Noell for letting me come on the show.

Congratulations! I just popped over there and listened to the first part! I love hearing people's voices, and hearing if they sound like I expected. I met Shimelle a few years ago when Karen arranged for her to teach a class at the EK crop. It felt like meeting a celebrity!

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Full circle continues - I have just come over to your blog after listening to you on PRT! Good to hear a British scrapbooker on there (I'm in Bristol), and I'm excited to look at your pages. I already read Natalie's blog and watch Shimelle's videos but I scrap digitally too so hoping to get some ideas from you! Heather

Clare said...

Thought you were fab, Abi. Really interesting episode and some great suggestions that have inspired me to scrap my Uni photos - ancient history that I will have to dig for!

I enjoyed listening to you on the Roundtable and am kind of jealous how you are getting to scrapbook your University years as they happen! Wish I could go back in time and do the same. Your pages are beautiful!
