As scrapbookers we are often asked why we spend so much time, money and energy on our hobby (or some people call it an obsessions).
That is a great question to ponder so I thought, why not make it today's post and see if it can help inspire you to find your "why".
Why I scrapbook:
I love to create! I enjoy the process, I like to match the colors and patterns. Paper smells and feels wonderful!
I have been know to be a bit of a shutterbug and have way too many cute photos to be just sitting in a box.
I love to write and this give me the perfect outlet to express my thoughts, feelings and mood. I am not the best at expressing my emotions and what I want to say verbally but give me a pen and paper, keyboard or scrapbook and watch out!
I do not ever want to forget! Life is too short.
I have no worries when I scrapbook. Focusing on the page in front of me helps block out those day to day trials. Who cares if property taxes are due next week, I have an awesome page going on!
It is my "me time". The kids know when I have that look in my eye to be a little nicer & quieter and they will get McDonald's or ice cream for dinner since cooking can interfer with that "inspirational process".
Sometimes, I have to pull out the photos of the kids doing something cute or having fun so that I remember why I have not put them up for adoption yet! LOL
and mostly...because it is FUN!
