I discovered scrapbooking several years ago when I wandered in a local scrapbook store to see what it was all about. I wasn’t too interested at the time, but the idea must have stayed in my mind.
A few months later, I decided to make a scrapbook out of my son’s childhood pictures and give it to him as a gift. I had no idea what I was getting into. I had a deadline to meet. I was flying to Calgary to visit my son and his family and I wanted to take the scrapbook with me. The staff at the store were most helpful, and I tentatively learned how to put a page together. Then I realized that I was going to be working overtime to get this project finished in time. I made it with a day or two to spare.
But by that time, I was hooked. I came home from the trip and promptly began making another scrapbook, this time for a friend. In time, I discovered altered books and began making those as well. One thing lead to another. I branched out and explored many forms of paper craft. I’m still a dedicated crafter. My friends say its an addiction.
Maybe it is.
I live in beautiful, Vancouver, Canada. We have an abundance of beautiful scenery, an abundance of rain and an abundance of scrapbook and craft stores. Life is good.
