why I love scrapbooking
By:by dd in CA
I love scrapbooking because it records the history of my family. I have been scrapbooking for the past 12 years (acid-free) and have a farily accurate record of our family during these years. I take pictures of everything (Kodak loves me) so I not only have pictures of vacations, Christmas, back to school, I have pictures of my chemotherapy, pregnancies, playing around the house etc.... I love to see the enjoyment my children get from looking at thier albums, remembering special family times as well as their own accomplishments. I think it is important to record events in our lives and what better way than with our scrapbooks.
I also enjoy scrapbooking as I have made some wonderful friends that I met through my hobby of scrapbooking. It is great to have people who enjoy scrapbooking as much as I do to share ideas and accomplishments with. These friends understand the camera that is always with me and most are grateful that I share my extra photos with them.
I love having a creative outlet that is so positive in my life and in the lives of my children. I hope that my children will be able to share their albums with their children so that generations will know what we were all about.
