Are not! Am so! The debate has been raging on in my head for about a week. Seems that some people seem to think I'm not a scrapbooker any more. And I have to admit that if you are a scrapbooker solely based on the number of pages you do per week, or month, or year I might not be much of a scrapbooker. I think the last "real" pages I did were for publication in Memory Makers early last year. But please don't say I'm not a scrapbooker. I am. Really. I promise. Well, I'll at least argue that I'm all about the memories and the warm fuzzy feelings they create. And although I haven't completed too many pages and put them in a scrapbook as of late, I'm pretty sure that the paper and glue (or at least the paper and pixels) will meet up again in the future. It's just that right now my life is not filled with little people or even big people and it's pretty much the same old same old day after day. Now, please don't take the time to write out a comment and tell me that future generations will want to know about my day to day. I know. I've done those pages. And unless they want to read dozens of pages about the world's most adorable standard poodle, there's just not a lot of material out there.
Well, there's material but it's the fabric kind and I'm using it to create memories of another kind. Another piece of history and art and craft that, with any luck, future generations will love and enjoy just like I adore the pieces of quilted art that my gram left behind for me.
It's all good. :) One day I'm pretty sure there will be other weddings, and grandchildren and LOTS of great stories to tell. And when those stories happen, I will be the one clicking the shutter and getting out the "vintage" scrapbook supplies and telling the stories for future generations. I promise. ;) But please, for now, just let me be a scrapbooker... even if I'm not a very prolific one. Ok?
p.s. I'm pretty sure that I might have to break out the supplies soon here. After all, the boy (the child version) has decided to come work for his dad and is turning out to be quite the salesman. Like father, like son. :) That's a story worth telling, I think. :) He just went out and bought his own "new to him" car this past weekend too. Oh look! I've got TWO stories worth telling. Better get to work on the pictures and supplies. I feel a trip to Archiver's coming on! :)
