I don't have time to scrapbook.

How many times have I heard that? A million!

My answer to that. Everyone has time to scrapbook. I think that some people expect if they become a scrapbooker they will have to set aside 5 to 6 hours aside and not having anything else going on.

That is not the case. Today while the baby took a 20 minute nap I finished up a page for her scrapbook.

Scrapbooking is not hard, its only tell your story and preserve for later.

I know someone who spends alot of time on vacation with her family during the year, they have gone to some amazing places and all her pictures are in boxes in the closet and when we visit we she will show us a slide show on her computer of hand us a hard copy of a set of pictures and there is no story to go with, she will say "oh I think this was here, or there" or "I think we were doing this or that." and she will say I don't have time to scrapbook.

But its only time consumming when you let it bit.

Years from now my kids, and their kids will know what happened in my life because I even though I won't be there to tell them who is in the picture, where we were and what we were doing they will be able to see very clearly what was happening, where we were. And they will become part of life all over again.

So, HI-5 to you for the gentle rebuke! I love to scrapbook, too, and I do have to plan and follow through to make it happen. So, I thought your post was pretty cool! I work outside of the home, but I so want my family to be able to look back years from now and remember the stories. Congrats on the new blog! I also started a new blog with the new year. I'll be following yours to stay encouraged. I'm even trying to make my own sketches so that I can reduce "over-think it" time. Be blessed, Mocha Scrapper!
