Scrapping Is....

May 1 , 2009

I did this for a challenge over at Pages In Time. This was the "What Scrapping Means To Me" entry.

For me, scrapping means so many things. The journaling I used reads: Scrapping is my creative outlet.

And that is very true. I incorporate all of my hobbies into my scrapping. Whether it is poetry or drawing, painting or all works with this medium.

However, this is not the only reason I scrap. Scrapping has become very theraputic for me. On my "not so good" days when my Fibromyalgia is bad, scrapping allows me to forget, if only for a little while, the pain I'm in. On the days that I am beating myself up for not being able to work, it helps give me that feeling of reward and a job well done. It fills the void in my life that comes for living an active life that I can no longer have. Not to mention the fact that with Fibromyalgia comes memory loss. Scrapping helps me to preserve memories that I may forget.

But the reason I mention the least is probably the most important....I scrap because I'm really good at it. LOL!

Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope to see you back real soon!
