for me right now its being able to share the things I like to do. I just joined some swapping groups. This keeps me from being bored when I have nothing to do. I like to scrap because, I find ways to use my pictures that are just laying around collecting dust. Now I can share them in albums all dressed up.

A hobby, not an obsession.

Some people seem more obsessed with buying supplies, rather than creating anything.

For me it is relaxing and enjoyable but I don't get but a bit of time to work on anything.

I would say it's a passion.

A fun thing that has made me a lot of friends.

I love the social aspect but I love the feeling I get when I create something from nothing.

It's a great hobby but to me it's almost more about the friendships.

A mission...to put all my photos in albums, but to do it creatively, making beautiful memories come to life. And if it gives me pleasure, peace, and therapy...well, all the better!

My first thought is collector, then it was artist, then it was time waster, therapy sounds better or historian. Yes I like the historian one.

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me. It's more than just a hobby. It's become part of my life, the way I celebrate and document my life and my family's life. It's also a means of expression, both visual and written, and an outlet for my creativity.

Cheaper than therapy! I can go into my scrap room and it's almost zen-like. I lose myself in my "work". It's a great pleasure and I have something beautiful to show for it when I walk out! I find myself spending more and more time in there. Love it!
