My Favorite Hobby
ONCE UPON A TIME, at a restaurant in my hometown, I received a gift from my mom that would change my life!
Ok... maybe this is starting off a little dramatic so let's get a little more serious.
When I turned 15, my mom had given me a scrapbook that she had started. Inside were scrapbook pages of me when I was younger. I thought it was such a personal and thoughtful gift but I wasn't sure what to do with it.
I was so inspired by what my mom created that I, too, wanted to try out this newly introduced hobby. So that's where it all began!
I started out by just throwing pictures and paper together with a few stickers and thought it was soooo cool. I then got into digital scrapbooking. This was so easy and fun but I felt like it took the creativity out of it.
Over the next few years, I watched countless YouTube videos of women scrapbooking their fondest memories, picking up tips and tricks. The creativity began to grow inside me and I wanted to scrapbook all day!
Today, I love to scrapbook, make cards and home decor, and pretty much anything thing that involves pretty paper and glue!
