I've been pondering this a lot lately.
I began thinking about it back in the spring. I was lucky enough to take a class (in person!) from Jessica Sprague (see earlier post). Then that evening, she delivered a key note speech in which she had us all to think about why we scrapbook.
Here's what I have come up with so far:
I scrapbook because I want to celebrate my life. I have a story to tell.
I want people to know that I was here. That I mattered. That I laughed, cried, loved, lost, triumphed, and failed.
I want to give myself a chance to play and explore. As adults, we don't get that chance very often.
I want to have a safe place where I don't have to follow any rules.
I want to leave my legacy.
So tell me... why do you scrapbook?
