I'm not even sure why I'm posting but after 6 years of scrapbooking, I feel completely burnt out and possibly even bored with it. This is after I've just bought my first diecutting machine after contemplating for years. I'm actually quite sad to have these feelings about abandoning scrapbooking - I thought for sure I'd scrap until the day I die.
It started with DD's first birthday when I first dabbled into "sewing" (mind you, I originally bought the machine not to sew but to stitch on my layouts). It started with making a simple tutu and a high chair cover, but they turned out exactly how I envisioned them and got lots of positive feedback. These handmade items made for some really nice birthday pictures. Then along came Halloween and I sewed both her and my costumes (Little Red Riding Hood and Granny Wolf) with some help from the internet. I searched high and low for tutorials because I have very limited sewing experience. They turned out really nice and I got a lot of compliments. So suddenly I'm completely obsessed with my new hobby and have completely neglected all of my scrapping.
Has this ever happen to anyone else here? Meaning, you found a new hobby, but eventually went back to scrapbooking? Sorry for rambling on, but this has been bugging me for a while now. Fortunately my DH has been very supportive and always telling me that I'm just pouring my creativity into another form of crafts and that the pictures will always be there to me to scrap at a later date.
