There's something really special about May - the figurative bridge between the Northern hemisphere's spring and summer, named for the Greek Goddess of Growth, Maia, and a promise of May flowers after April showers. These are all things that we can give May a round of applause for... however, we're talking about something arguably more special than all of those notable mentions: and that's National Scrapbook Day.
What is National Scrapbook Day?
Always the first Saturday of May, National Scrapbook Day began in 1994 and is now recognized all over the world, thus it's oftentimes referred to as International Scrapbook Day - and both are accurate!
National Scrapbook Day is all about celebrating scrapbooking in all of its forms! From paying hommage to the captivating history of scrapbooking that dates back to the Middle Ages, to celebrating modern interpretations with Pocket Page Scrapbooking and mini albums in all shapes and sizes, we honor whatever a scrapbook album is defined as to you!
