I read this today and felt in such agreement w/ the author:
"I scrapbook because life is short and time is fleeting; memories fade and good intentions can be forgotten."
It was written by Jlyne Hanback for Scrapbooking.com's online magazine. I couldn't agree more with her reason for scrapbooking. Everyone who enjoys this hobby has a reason; it's relaxing, it's a good excuse for girl time and chocolate, and it's productive. But, really, the older I grow the more time means to me. And I can't think of a better thing to spend my free time doing, than recording my family's history. I love this hobby!
