It’s Q&A month and I’m answering your biggest questions about life, business, and simple scrapbooking.
What do you say to people who tell you that scrapbooking is a waste of time?
While I’ve never had this said to me, I would remind the individual that we are fortunate to be able to follow our interests and spend free time partaking in hobbies. Scrapbooking is no more a waste of time than building model cars or collecting dolls. While scrapbookers get a lot of personal enjoyment from the activity itself, the impact of memory keeping is in fact much broader.
Practicing creativity is important for the growth and stability of our economy, as is taking personal time for restorative activities. Memory keeping instills self-worth and appreciation for everyday life in our families, especially our children. Documentation also helps future generations learn from our experience and feel a sense of cross-generational connectedness.
