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!!
