Edited to add: This is a paragraph I put on my blog as a way to share my discussion for the paperclipping roundtable. I'm going to link the website, great podcasts and more. It's fantastic! :)
I'd like to comment on the process of scrapbooking and the guilt of scrapbooking. I thought it was really interesting that everyone gave their feedback on the process of scrapbooking. I'm not new to scrapbooking, but I'm not old either, and I've honestly never took a moment to think about the process and how everyone's process is different. I think my process is just kind of scattered, a few pictures here, and a bit of glitter there and ta-da. I don't have a real formula other than to start with the picture(s). I try not to guilt myself in my process at all, although I think something that may not have been thought about is the guilt from other people. I'm in the process of doing scrapbooks for others (family members), and the amount of guilt is frustrating. I feel like I can't do something of "my own" until I do a layout for a family member who does not take the time to scrapbook at all. Incredibly frustrating, but at the end of the day I do what I makes me happy. I can't let others guilt me into making this craft I love something I hate.
And that, is my two cents. :)
Love the paperclipping roundtable! So fun.
