We’re so glad you found us! But now that you’re here, I bet you’re wondering why we’re here too. Well, that may take some ‘splainin’, as Ricky Ricardo used to say.
Life is awesome. It’s filled with ups and downs, good decisions and not-so-great decisions, fabulous experiences and the occasional yuckiness. Each and every moment we experience in life is ours, and we should embrace them for what they are, regardless of whether they’re good or bad. After all, every experience in life offers us a chance to learn from the outcome.
Why should our scrapbooking be any different? Sure, it’s super easy to sit down and create pages and mini-albums about the smiling shining times that we enjoy. But what about all those other times — the ones we may not necessarily have enjoyed while we were going through them, but that are equally as important? Life is not a bowl of cherries. So should our scrapbook pages be?
When I became a scrapbooker, like most, I created layouts and projects about the happy times in life. I called it “therapy”, yet there was always a little part of me that felt my hobby was incomplete. Then, a few months ago, when my oldest beloved cat had a stroke and we feared she didn’t have much time left, I had an epiphany. I immediately got my camera out and began to document the experience. Most people may have seen this as strange, but for me, it helped me cope with what she and I both were going through. Luckily, our kitty is still with us, and I have dozens of some of the best photos I’ve ever taken of her. I know when she’s gone, I’ll be so thankful I took them.
But the photos are only the beginning. I believe it is just as important to create pages and projects to document our feelings and frustrations as we live our lives, however big or small they may be. I know this will be a foreign concept to many, and very difficult for most. And that is what brings us back to this blog.
