Sorry for the delay ladies. To date, my questions are as follows:
Scrapbooking for you – it's a profession, or a way to make creative flight, hobby?March 18, 2014 at 2:30 pm #234119
For me its gone past a hobby, more like an obsession, LOL. It is my therapy.March 18, 2014 at 2:54 pm #234118

What Kim said!!!!March 18, 2014 at 3:55 pm #234120
For me, it started out as a need, to get scrapbooks to display on my 2 youngest kids graduation tables. That was back in 1997-98 and my oldest dd did most of it, with a little help from me. Then it tued into a way to be creative and spend fun time with other scrappers, especially my sister and sister-in-law. Now, I just love it! It is what I do to relax. So, I guess now, it has become my therapy!March 18, 2014 at 8:20 pm #234116
it's an awesome (and apparently expensive!) hobby! I've been scrapping since 2003 when I graduated from high school and I love it! 🙂March 18, 2014 at 8:33 pm #234121
Mine started out as a hobby and like others I'm obsessed with it now and I find it very relaxing!March 18, 2014 at 9:08 pm #234122
I've always been crafty, even when I was very young. My craft time was always stolen time–shoulda been working, cleaning, with the kids, you know. Now that I'm retired, it's what I do, and I'm loving every minute of it.March 18, 2014 at 10:40 pm #234123
I did the DT for awhile and then fell out of it because I was babysitting my grandaughter. Last year I took a long break from scrapping. I am trying to get back to it. Maybe by fall/winter I will be productive enough for a DT again.March 18, 2014 at 11:03 pm #234124
Like so many others, this started out as a hobby; in my case as a way to show my family's history.
And like so many others, I became sidetracked by the examples of so many talented designers.
And now, to quote Kim, For me its gone past a hobby, more like an obsession, LOL. It is my therapy.March 19, 2014 at 3:06 am #234125
Hobby / Therapy for me. I may retire in July and Hope to be able to sell bits and things so that I can continue to buy scrapbook supplies. Probably still won't call it a profession at that point, because I am not looking to make a full time income from it.March 19, 2014 at 2:20 pm #234126
I've enjoyed all things creative since I was a child but as an adult I love all things paper and mixed media. It is a serious hobby and therapy for me. I used to sell more but now I like to do it more for fun and enjoyment.March 19, 2014 at 5:13 pm #234127
Papercrafting in general is a creative outlet for me. I've been doing various crafty endeavors since childhood, but my favorite activity was coloring. Nothing like a fresh box of Crayolas and a new coloring book to make my little heart go pitter-patter! When I discovered rubber stamping in the 90s it was a rediscovery of my passion for coloring, which evolved into a love for paper crafting in general. I really didn't want to scrapbook at first; it took my mom a couple years to wear me down. lol! I scrap to capture the memories and for my own enjoyment. It's a cross between therapy and relaxation, and it makes me happy. I am lucky enough to have a hubby who enjoys (insists actually) seeing what I create and takes pride in telling people his wife made that! I still do many other crafts, and likely always will, but getting my hands all inky just makes me happy…. Is that weird?March 19, 2014 at 7:16 pm #234128
Monica that's great that you have such a supportive husband. Every time I show my dh something I made he just looks at me and says I don't get itMarch 20, 2014 at 12:13 am #234129
Definitely what Kim said! I get cranky if I can't scrap for awhile. I was also wo down by a friend to get started. Look what she started! Honestly,my scrapping never really blossomed til I joined Swirlydoos because it combined gorgeous products with a crazy and talented bunch of supportive ladies. !lolMarch 20, 2014 at 2:57 am #234130
