Scrapbooking helps me relax
Being a busy mother of 2 children, 5 dogs, 2 cats, and a husband, it is sometimes hard to find time to just sit down, relax, and do something fun for myself. I don't have a lot of time for "frivolous" hobbies, but somehow scrapbooking seems important.
My husband can actually see the benefit of scrapbooking as he looks through my albums of the children and pets. He thinks it's a little silly, a grown woman playing with stickers, glue and scissors, but he does enjoy the results!
When I finally find a small amount of free time, I find it incredibly relaxing to sit down by myself with my pictures, supplies and memories. It's such an indescribable feeling of relaxation for me!
Even the process of buying scrapbook supplies is fun and relaxing! Sometimes I think shopping for scrapbook "stuff" is the best part! I feel like a little kid on Christmas when I receive my packages in the mail from my favorite online scrapbooking stores, including DMarie!!
Scrapbooking is a time for me to relax, have fun, and just enjoy myself, while giving me an outlet for my creativity, and allowing me to pass on my families history at the same time.
