I think after a lot of messing around, I've finally settled on a system for getting my photos edited and uploaded. For a while I had a system that worked well for me, then I made the switch to Lightroom, was just starting to figure that out and I got my smart phone, and then got completely lost on how to manage camera photos, phone photos, plus random stuff like Instagram. I think it's finally all starting to come together.
I'll make a post about my processing system soon, but for now I'm just going to share the fruits of my labors from yesterday. Here are some snapshots from the month of March.
The following are all from a ridiculous afternoon in Salem at the peak of the cherry blossoms.
If you are a Pixel Scrapper subscriber, I've published my part in the regular stream of things as well, so that you can download it through the Pixel Scrapper system and it will be marked as downloaded for you.

I've also uploaded a few add-ons to the site.
Update on my previous creative block: I have done a completely 360 and am now drowning in inspiration. I have so many ideas about so many things that I'm almost wishing for the creative block to come back, but not really. I'm working on a Mexico Bundle and it's exploding. It will be quite large. And bright. And full of glitter. Prepare yourselves.
This week I have some random fun for you!
I started to see this hashtag pop up on Instagram yesterday, so I did a little searching to figure out what it was. It sounded like it would be wonderful, and I think it is!
The hashtag originates with this challenge to document for 100 days something that makes you happy. As scrapbookers we're already committed to capturing and saving daily moments, but I know for me it's sometimes tricky to figure out what to capture in the day to day when things seem so mundane and the same! A little outside encouragement and challenge is always appreciated and I'm looking forward to joining this internet sensation.
I'll be sharing my photos on instagram, and I'd love to follow along with you! So leave a comment below if I can find you on Instagram too.
We just had the sunniest and most wonderful weekend. On Saturday we drove to Salem, the state capitol to enjoy some tremendous cherry blossoms. We didn't even know the blossoms were going to be there, so it was really a happy coincidence that we went right when they were in full bloom. Needless to say I have a lot of scrapping ahead of me because I am not capable of taking less than 100 photos when I see cherry blossoms.
In other news my second ocean bundle is finally available. Enjoy the muted colors while you can! The creative team has some wonderful inspiration for you.
Pixel Scrapper Blog
Hi There! I’m Marisa Lerin and you’ll see me around at Pixel Scrapper a lot. I started this site in 2010 soon after I discovered a new love in digital scrapbooking. Pixel Scrapper has gone through some significant changes since that time and it’s grown into this lovely community site you are seeing now. I am daily surprised by the turn of life’s events that has led me down this path. If you're new to the site, welcome! Here are a few tidbits about me that I hope will help you get to know me better!
I’m originally from Minnesota, USA, but spent a good chunk of my childhood living abroad (in Bolivia and Hong Kong). I returned to Minnesota to attend university, got married and then moved overseas again (Korea, then Jordan and 1 year of traveling). My designs are heavily influenced by these many nomadic years. I am currently back in the USA, now living in the great state of Oregon!
I have no official training for what I’m doing, since I decided very wisely (haha) to study physics in university. I am always learning new things about digital scrapbooking, and this community has been immensely helpful for that!
If I manage to stop digital scrapbooking you will probably find me watching TV, reading or baking. I also enjoy writing for the blog here at Pixel Scrapper where I talk about whatever happens to be catching my fancy at the moment.
