Okay, so here's the deal. I need your advice. Seriously. I want to know your thoughts on this, since I can't seem to come to a conclusion on my own.
When I lived in So Cal, I used to scrapbook. Not diligently, not particularly creatively, but I did get simple books done. I used to go to a scrapbooking "class" that met once a week, except it wasn't really a class. It was a evening with friends... gossiping and getting a page or two done in a scrapbook. My friend Kyle and I used that class as a way to stay in touch as I become a stay-at-home-mom and she is a big whig for a huge municipality. I treasured those classes and I like the books that got done in them.
Fast forward almost five years and I have to confess that I haven't done ANY scrapbooking since we left So Cal in 9/2005. Not one page. I have tons of scrapbooking paper, two empty albums, a lot of stickers, and a number of punches. I have the stuff that helps me cut circles, ovals, squares, and rounded corners. The stickers have been used for other craft projects and the punches have been used as well. But scrapbooking? Nada.
Until recently, I held onto my scrapbooking stuff by telling myself it doesn't expire, it doesn't hurt me to just hold on to it. Now, however, I feel like I need to use it or get rid of it. It takes up space (but I definitely have the space for it) and I feel disappointed with myself for not making scrapbooks for my kids. I have tons of pictures that I need to either get into albums or scan into my computer. If feels as if getting rid of the stuff means I'll never do anything with the pictures. I go round and round in my mind and haven't quite resolved what do. So I'm putting it out there for you to weigh in.
What do you think I should do? Do you think I should get rid of the stuff? Keep the stuff? Get rid of some of the stuff? What are your thoughts?
