A&I WK2 (Daisies) My Favorite Hobby

Thursday, November 08, 2012


My favorite hobby is scrapbooking. I make one every year for my sister. I enjoy stamping and making cards as well, but I never know what to do with them LOL!! I end up sending a lot for Ronald McDonal House Charities and Operation Write Home.

I enjoy scrapbooking because 1) I get together with friends to do it frequently, 2) it's nice going through all the photos, 3) I get to use my odds and ends and goodies, 4) it is fairly quick and easy once you get going and 5) it's an awesome creative outlet. I can't do much fine motor skilled things any more like embrodery because of my neck/back and carpel tunnel and since scrapbooking is mostly larger items I can handle them all well. I really enjoy color and themes and pulling things together. I have an eye for detail (like on one page I did for my sister the paper had teal colored raindrops and I put light and dark teal rhinestones on them). It's just very fun, easy and very appreciated gifts!!

    I really want to start scrapbooking. I have so many boxes full of memories. I've never tried scrapbooking so my first go with it will be for my son's graduation in 2 years. Hopefully I can get to organizing all of his memoriabilia by then.

    I haven't done much scrapbooking lately. I did help my aunt make a scrapbook album for my grandma's 90th birthday several years ago. Since then I haven't really done any. It can be quite fun especially when you get together with family / friends to do it. I'm sure your sister really appreciates the albums you make for her every year. You should take pics of some of your work and share them with us if you get the chance. emoticon

    I tried scrapbooking once and became very quickly overwhelmed lol. I've thought about doing the digital scrapbooking though but have yet to start it. I admire those with the creativity to make amazing scrapbook pages. Thanks for sharing!

    I have seen some really creative scrapbooks. My cousin does that, too, and they are so cool! I did one a couple years ago after one of our cruises and it looked like a 5 yr old did it emoticon ! I just don't have the creativity, I guess!

    Wonderful blog and I too share your hobby of scrapbooking. Thanks for mentionion the Ronald McDonald House Charities as I have the same problem with cards so now I have another place to check out to donate some. I've done a lot for the Operation Write Home too. I wish I had local friends I could get together with regularly to scrapbook, but that hasn't happened in a long time.

    I'm so jealous! I love scrapbooking too but with two little ones and very limited space in our apartment I can't get into it right now.

    Sounds great! I have a friend who does stamping and cards, and they come out really pretty. I'm sure any recipient of your scrapbooks love them!

    That's mine too, but only I do it digitally. I've never printed a scrapbook. I just enjoy doing them, and for challenges as well.
Good luck with your upcoming one!
