My friend Eric is a scrapbooker and a scrap-blogger 🙂 I subscribe to the feed for his blog, "Load of Scrap" and I read every post! Yesterday, he wrote a little article about his first "cautious" trip to a crop at Archivers. You should read the post here. But if you don't have time, let me share with you my favorite quote from the article….
In a world that seems to become more divided by the day Ã¢â‚¬â€œ scrapbookers are not only the exception, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d say we are exceptional. No one asked my political proclivities Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t matter. What matters is that I know how to use a Cricut, am a master at operating a Xyron, can name twenty uses for a brad, and can spot a sheet of Basic Grey paper at fifty paces.
So funny & so true! Scrapbooking and paper crafting is a fabulous equalizer. Sure, you *might* get more accomplished locked away at home, but if you don't ever attend a retreat or crop, you're missing out on some of the fabulous side benefits of this hobby…..
