I have a question for you – I need your help. Every time I talk to a non scrapbooker about scrapbooking, somewhere in the conversation they say “Yah, but it is such an expensive hobby”.
How do you respond to this comment???
I have trouble articulating my response, but in my head I am thinking…this is a hobby that has lasting value – I am creating something for my children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren. It’s not a golf game that ends at hole 18, gone forever (and is cheaper too). What I love about scrapbooking is that I can enjoy(big understatement) the whole creative process – the craft part – but when I have finished I have preserved a memory – wow that is priceless!! I just see it as a win/win adventure! Am I deceived?
So what do you say to people who know nothing about scrapbooking except that “that is such an expensive hobby” …and really in the scheme of things..is it that expensive? Really?
Help me out gals – I need to defend this wonderful craft! I am heading to a family reunion with a 40 page 8X8 family history as a gift for the grandparents…and someone is going to say it!
BTW…speaking of that 8X8 – the idea came to me Sat am at ….yah you know me…6am. I have been at it 12 hrs a day ever since – 12 hrs scanning and editing old, old photos and printing and scrapping – 9 pages to go – what a fabulous marathon! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I will try to get them on the blog before I leave.
Love my scrapbooking buddies! That’s YOU!
