I finally found a hobby that I truly enjoy and is becoming an obsession. I did not realize it was going to be this way. It began when I went to workshop through school and I thought it I would give it chance. It was either the Creative Expressions workshop or Latin Dancing! Truly I have been searching for a long time and trying to figure out what I wanted to do and I found it. I did not even know what to do on the first night. I was sitting at a table with other women who have been doing this for a long time and just observing their work, supplies, etc. I absolutely did not have a clue of what to do. Ever since then, I find scrapbooking to me therapeutic and to relive the wonderful memories. I love scrapbooking because I love what we can do with the photographs and really bring them to life. Scrapbooking is important because it connects us with the past with the present. I believe it is even more important because my daughter can look back at the events that has taken place in her life. She is only four years old and she will thank me down the line. Scrapbooking has definitely changed my life. My husband thinks I have lost my mind. My scrapbook supplies have doubled in weeks. Another funny thing is that I cannot tear myself away from Michaelís Arts and Crafts. I will be in that store for hours. There are so many things that I do with my pictures, however, I still have a lot to learn. I have looked through magazines and observed how great the pages look and how people got it to look that way. I hope that one day that I will be good as them.
