When asked “What are your hobbies?’… what do you say? Most people say things like reading, hanging out with friends, working out, watching movies, and other things that HELLO, everybody does. I scrapbook. And that’s not something I really ever thought I’d do. But I do it. I do it A LOT. And I kinnddaa do it well.
I get allllll my scrapbooks, paper and stickers from Michael’s. They literally have rows and rows of stuff! AND weekly coupons! I get all of my pictures developed at Walgreensbecause they are fast, right by my house, easy to upload and also have weekly coupons!
I’ve always like pictures! I got my first camera was in 7th grade and it was purple. I took it everywhere! BUT, it was film so many a terrible picture was developed.
I blame my mom. She loves pictures too and makes many photo albums. So does HER mom. My Memaw made both my brother and me a huge photo collage of our lives as a graduation gift. It is a beautiful collage of Natalie.Love it.
So basically it was my destiny.
I started scrapbooking my freshman year of college–as a way to document a very important time in my life! I loved it immediately–idk maybe I just like pictures of myself. And scrapbooking is my creative way to feed my narcissism. Who knows.
So last year I was elected as historian for my scholarship program and every year we make a scrapbook. Guess who gets to make it? So now I’m on my THIRD scrapbook. And I get to make it with anoth
er’s bank account. SCORE. PS. It is a lot of work. But I love it!
