Questions and Answers


I scored another interview in Scrapbook Answers magazine a few weeks ago and Leslie Ayers the editor is selling me 150 copies at what I can only assume is cost ( or less ) because the price is so incredibly cheap. This means Lorna ( Queen Bee of Delta Phi Scrappa ) and I can hook up the ladies going on the upcoming Delta Phi one day scrap with a free copy and have it answer a lot of thier questions about the movie. Lorna has set up a one day - twelve hour event at a Raddison hotel banquet room as a sampler of her 3 day sorority initiation events that usually happen once a year in the fall. She is setting this up especially so I can go through the class and use it in the movie. I am extremely grateful as these things are a complete riot. Check out their website for pictures of the last inititation.

Very cool magazine... each issue comes with a CD with free fonts, layouts, how to videos, demo's, etc. I'm not a scrapbooker and even I think it's cool! I can't believe they approached me for an interview. I hope I can live up to the expectation of knowing something. :0)

I'm also having a doosey of a time finding a doctor or specialist that works with Alzheimers or memory loss patients for a segment of the movie. I'll find a connection and then get steered to a PR department of the hospital and shot down because I'm not established enough, don't have a big enough name or a distribution deal. Crazy. I'm not asking for trade secrets... I'm not going to start a neurology center out of the back of my house. I can see where I look like a joker that will waste their time so I guess that's the way it goes. I've got to admit this whole concept is pretty crazy.

The thing I keep running into with this and the last project was that many industry people didn't get it at all. They were locked in to their perspective and interpreted anything outside of it as infiesable. The crazy thing is that the average Jane and Joe in the street love this stuff so if I can fight through the process of getting it done then I'm golden.

The Alzheimers thing sounds really cool - I took art therapy classes a while back - the idea of using scrapping for Alzheimers or grief work has tons of potential.

Our church had this little service in a nursing home - when the Alzheimers ladies were thinking about God/spiritual things they were extremely lucid. In fact I thought they were the most with it people in the group until another lady told me, 'honey, those ladies are locked up!'.
