Thank you to all of you who promoted Scanfest on your blogs or on your Facebook statuses, and apologies to those of you who had problems with Windows Live Messenger. Next month, I hope to use a new chat platform, so stay tuned to this blog for updates. I hope you all got started on your scanning projects for the New Year and will take some time to crop, label and file your images between now and Sunday, February 22nd, the date of our next Scanfest!

Aw, shucks, thanks for coming, ladies!

Thanks for hosting Miriam! I actually got some scanning done besides chatting :-)

I'll be on the road next month but I'll be watching to see what we need if you change platforms.

Thanks Miriam! I had a blast, learned some new tips, met some really nice folks and got a bit of work done to boot! Can't complain about that! Now, on to labeling the images scanned....
