I have these really mixed feelings about the idea of scrapbooking.

On one hand, it seems a brilliant idea.  A wonderful way to be creative, a beautiful way to capture memories. 

On the other hand, it's such a hassle!  There's so much to buy, so much to collect, so much work to do.

I just don't know.  I love being creative, though my usual outlets are counted cross-stitch or knitting or other working with my hands following a pre-set plan.  But though I really don't feel I have the skill-set to be a brilliant scrapbooker, something in the idea draws me.  I've never met anyone who scrapbooks, I've only seen one show on TV about it, and heard about it in passing from time to time, but still... I wish it were more clear to me why I feel this draw to something that's probably really not for me.
