Do you like to scrapbook

If you do, where do you fit in the time... I love it yet never seem to have the time.

  • I enjoy it but right now with 3 busy teens I don't have much time for it. So twice in the past year, I've gone on scrapbooking weekends, just 48 hours with about 15 other women and that's all we did for 48 hours. No interruptions except for meals and sleep, if you wanted to. Otherwise, lots of room to spread out, others to ask for ideas and help and for good conversation. Wasn't very expensive, about $90 for 2 nights, 5 meals, a room to myself, and best of all - no one wanting me to stop and feed them or drive them somewhere or find something for them!

  • I am a total scrapaholic!! LOL. My kids are grown for the most part. My last 2 are seniors. So, I'm pretty much on my own. Meaning, I can scrap pretty much when I want to. That is...when Miss Mojo hasn't gone on vacay! LOL.

  • I have a whole room devoted to it...I typically do it in the evenings and on the weekends if we are not busy. I'm OCD so I don't let the pictures get out of hand and not get behind. I also make cards and invitations for people so it's like a second job for me as well.

  • I love it but with a 4.5 month old time is rare. I focus on 1 page at a time and have become a "nap crafter." When he is napping I try to get the stuff done that I don't like doing when he is awake. i.e. hot glue
