Hi Marilyn! I'm currently printing from an Epson Artisan 1430. I've always been an HP girl, but wanted the capability to print up to 13x19 and HP doesn't offer that anymore. I really love the quality of the Artisan prints (even on the HP paper I had in my stash!) My only complaint is that ink is a bit pricey...and I almost always have to clean the printheads if it goes more than 2-3 days without printing. But overall, I'm pretty happy with it!!

Hey Lauren! I do plan to do the Blogarage Sale! It will likely be in November when I am forced to clean off the dining room table for Thanksgiving dinner and get rid of stuff! :)

Hey Kathleen! I do use page protectors (all my albums are American Crafts Modern Albums ) and they flatten dimensional items slightly, but they are roomy enough to still allow things to "pop" up a bit!
