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.

Hi Andrea! Just stopping by again after enjoying your pets and unschooling posts on AU. :) I've scrapbooked some, but mostly I just have a collection of photos and scrapbooking supplies that I never seem to have time to use, mainly because it requires a chunk of time, space and concentration. For me, knitting is easier to do with little ones running around.

I think I'm going to order some custom photo albums from Kodakgallery.com instead. You can fill in the layouts and captions online and they print them up like a book!
