Scrapbooks are keepsakes that are meant to remind us of certain times, people, and events that took place in our lives. Making a scrapbook is a very personal endeavor, and it takes a lot of heart and personal commitment to produce pieces that are meant to last for years. But scrapbooking is not strictly personal – it also works well as an activity for family or a group of friends.
There are many ways to get together with people and enjoy your favorite hobby. Here are a few ideas for you to consider:
- Start a club – If you have friends who like to scrapbook, it’s a safe bet that they have friends who like to scrapbook as well! This is a great way to network and find new ideas for layouts.
- Workshops – If you have a hobby supply store in town, they likely have information on workshops in the area. You could also check your local area’s event calendar for information on when and where the workshops will occur.
- Retreats – Remember summer camp? How fun was it to go away for a month and meet new people? Well, those days don’t have to be over when you attend a scrapbook retreat! Sign up to stay at a retreat and meet fellow scrappers to compare work, exchange ideas, and make friends. To find a retreat near you, check out Scrapbook Retreat Directory and click on your state.
Be prepared for these events with supplies from StorePhotos.com. And, as always, Scrap Often and Scrap Happy!
