Hi, there! Welcome to Pictures to Scrapbook. My name is Rebecca, and I am a scrapbooker.
First, a little bit about me. I have always loved being creative, even as a child. I was always teaching myself to do something new (and cool…well, to me anyway!). Memory keeping (ahem, hoarding memorabilia and pictures) was always an interest I had, but I didn’t ‘officially’ start scrapbooking until my daughter was born in 2005. I had taken literally thousands of pictures of her, and most of them were sitting on my computer’s hard drive. I knew that I wanted to get them off of my computer, so that I could see them and touch them and share them with family and friends in a meaningful way.
In December, 2006, I saw a Close to My Heart Idea Book at my mother-in-law’s house. After seeing all of the beautiful artwork in those pages, I knew that was what I wanted to do with my pictures. I signed up to be a consultant without ever seeing the products. I just knew that it was meant for me, and the rest, as they say, was history.
Fast forward six years, and I have decided to start a blog. I want to be able to share some of the things I have learned along the way, things I wish I knew at the beginning, and things that are new and exciting.
This blog is meant to be a place to connect with people who are just as passionate as I am about remembering all of the little details about our lives, telling the stories that matter to us, and sharing them with our family and friends. I envision a place for tutorials and lists for those who are just beginning on their memory keeping journey, tips, videos, news, and some inspiration thrown into the mix.
My goal is to help you get your pictures off of your hard drive or out of those shoeboxes and to help you create scrapbooks full of memories.
Please feel free to leave a comment, email me, or send me a Tweet about what you would like to see on this blog. I would love to hear where you are in your scrapbooking, what questions you may have about scrapbooking, or just introduce yourself.
Now, I have a question for you:
Why do you scrapbook or why do you want to start?
