There are countless reasons that I love scrapbooking.
I can drop what I’m doing, take a photo and capture a thrilling emotion.
Can you ever have enough American Crafts Thickers and Flair buttons? What about Coredinations cardstock? I think not.
Last Friday, while busy at work, my phone rang. I looked down at the caller ID to see “Miss Riddle.” Miss Riddle is Chase’s language arts teacher. My heart sank a little assuming she needed to talk to me about a late assignment or some other concern. I said “Hello, this is Stacy” and she said, “This is Miss Riddle, I’m calling just to say what a great kid Chase is. I really enjoy having him in class and he is doing so well!”
“Thanks” I said. I hung up and started bawling as the most amazing emotion swelled inside of me. I cannot even say what it meant to hear from a teacher in this way — wow!
When Chase got home, I ran upstairs with my camera and snapped this photo while he was playing the piano.
I absolutely love that as a scrapbooker I can freeze moments of time and add to them important sentiments that cannot be expressed often enough!
For years the most popular column in Creating Keepsakes magazine has been Tips & Tricks. The concept of bringing readers snippets of helpful ideas and solutions is NOW a special issue.
