Hi, my name is Natasha and I am a scrapbooker.
I started scrapbooking about 12 years ago, and right from the start it felt natural to me. Once I got into it I realized that I’d been scrapbooking all my life. I’ve always arranged my pictures and labeled them and saved mementos to put in my photo albums.
I see scrapbooking as a way to express myself artistically; it’s a creative outlet. I don’t scrapbook for future generations, I do it for myself, simply because I enjoy it. My style has evolved through the years, but I have never really been into cute or trendy. I prefer clean, uncluttered pages that focus on the pictures.
Scrapbooking is a fabulous hobby for me for lots of reasons, but mostly because I enjoy shopping. There is a never-ending array of gadgets and supplies to buy. I love going to the annual Scrapbook Expo where there are giant rooms filled with things for me to purchase. I also go there to take classes and learn new techniques, but mostly I buy things. Lots of things. I think I may need a twelve step program.
