Creating Scrapbooks



March is National Craft Month.  We would like to recognize all of our artisans, crafters and those who indulge as a hobby.  I fall into the later category, I love scrapbooking and creating things for my home.  I was exposed to embroidery at an earlier age.  My grandmother embroidered pillow cases, and I was tasked with wrapping the thread about those little pieces of cardboard.  You know the little pieces of cardboard that identified the thread color.  She also did cross-stitching, which I started years ago. 

I’m also an avid scrapbooker.  The above picture is my grandson, who fell asleep after a Thunderbird’s air show.  My scrapbooking has become an investment.  I should buy stock in stickers, paper, embellishments and the Cricut.  I love to scrapbook my travels and my grandchildren.  I’m currently finishing a scrapbook of my trip to the Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta.  There’s nothing better than creating great memories and being able to flip through a beautiful book as I reminisce.  My family enjoys going through them as well.  I’m hoping to add a sunroom off my kitchen this spring, which I will also use as my craft room. Stay tuned.

What are your favorite crafts?  Is it a hobby or do you sell for profit?  Leave me a comment, I would love to connect with fellow crafters.
