Scrapbooking has been a part of my life for almost the past ten years. Though I may go days, weeks, and sometimes even months without even pulling out the album I’m working on, these albums, and the time that I take to create them, tell a big story about who I am. The books are fun to look at–the girls love grabbing one and pouring over it and asking questions about who people are and what they’re doing. They’re fun to make–I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent putting together layouts, talking about them with friends, and even going away for a night or a weekend devoted to working on them. My scrapbooks tell a story, much like I do when I put together a pattern or write. They tell the story of us.
