Why I Love Scrapbooking
Scrapbooking is a relaxing hobby for me that I find so fulfilling. I work long hours each week and travel away from home overnight several times during a month. With a husband that travels all week also, this leaves my daughter to stay with family and friends. In the evenings and on weekends my time is spent doing the chores and running all the errands a busy mom has to do. My daughter is almost 17 and certainly does not require the amount of care she used to but I miss the time we do not get to spend together.
Scrapbooking allows me to take time alone or with a group of friends and have some "down time" away from all the hustle and bustle of my daily life. It is guilt free time away from my family because I am working on my family memories. I am preserving our wonderful lives and experiences for future generations and for our enjoyment now! As a bonus, my daughter likes to scrap also and this is time we spend together focusing on our family and talking. It is amazing what a teen ager will tell you if you will just listen. We have had some great and precious times together just scrapping.
So it is a diversion from work and chores, it is a memory preserver and a memory maker for me!!
