There is a myth about scrapbooking. It is that it is corny sentimentalism. I don’t think so. Here are some things scrapbooking is and isn’t.
What scrapbooking is not:
- Scrapbooking is not always fancy pages; it can be a photo, drawing, or story in a notebook or sketchpad of a story you want to remember.
- Scrapbooking is not just for old ladies like me. Everyone has stories to tell, the scrapbooker is the one who controls what is remembered.
- Scrapbooking is not something to put off. There is no time like the present to tell a story! Listen to your conversations and start writing your stories down.
- Scrapbooking is not hard. Sure, it can become complicated, but it isn’t hard. It can be as simple or difficult as you make it.
- Scrapbooking is for hip people because it is not just corny sentimentalism. Did you just read 1 – 4 or not?
What scrapbooking is:
- Scrapbooking is a place for the people in your life to be remembered.
- Scrapbooking is a FUNN collection of moments which were special.
- Scrapbooking is a treasure chest of stories that you tell at Thanksgiving that make you remember the people who aren’t at the table anymore.
- Scrapbooking is a way for your mind to travel to the sights, smells, sounds, feels, words, and tastes of your life.
- Scrapbooking is the opposite of corny sentimentalism; it is an essential sentimental recollection of you.
If you are ready to tell your story, I can offer suggestions, such as:
