Way #6 to Find Joy - Make Something!

Hello. My name is Robbie and I am a ... scrapbooker.

Hi Robbie!

Some call it a cult and others an addiction. Whatever it is, I love it. I enjoy cropping and punching
and taping and arranging. I love putting pictures in an album and watching it become something lovely.

For the past few weeks, I've been working on an album for my grandbaby who turns one soon. As I plan each page and choose the background paper and the stickers to match, I experience JOY!
I am not a crafty person at all, but I can scrapbook and I love it when I do it. Something cathartic happens when I make a 3-D creation.

Are you looking for a splash of joy in your life? Make something. A picture, art, a lovely meal or a cool outfit. Watch the joy happen just from allowing yourself to use your imagination.

By the way, wanna join the scrapbooking society? The first sticker is free. :0)

Great post ! Scrapbooking is my relaxation and over the past 15 years I have been in the so called clut! Ha Ha - nothing is more satisfying then when one of my boys(now in their late teens or early 20's pull an album of the shelf to share with someone. Keep scraping!

Oops...Nanette I doubled your comment so I eliminated one copy!

I love scrapping!! I take heart from your comment that one day Noah will pull out one and enjoy it. Or his wife or children. :0)

If you live or are ever in the Denver area, let's meet up at a scrapping store and crop and chat!! From one cult member to the other! :0)
