The Beauty of Memory

Quite early in our friendship, the Good Countess of Yik Yak introduced me to the fine art of scrapbooking.

I must admit, I had previously maintained that this endeavour was only done by rural women and shut-ins. That really - no one would every choose to do this as a creative outlet unless they had run out of DoodleArt posters and macrame string.

I was mistaken.

Sorely mistaken.

On the contrary, this handicraft lays itself open in a boundless arena of potential. And the Baroness is all about potential. Yes she is.

Scrapbooking truly is an amazing art, and those who are passionate about it do it so well; they manage to sift through a wide array of magnificent materials, techniques both ancient and cutting edge and breathtaking layouts to sculpt meaningful tributes to those things they hold the dearest:

Countess Ti: Which part? The 'patience' part or the 'not giving a shit' part? Because I'm definitely better at one that the other...

Countess MPM: What do you mean,*snort* - you're not coming down with the LetterNumber Flu, are you??

Countess NNG: There's no crossing over? Oh, pooh.

So that last person was Crapbooking?

See, I have no patience but greatly admire those who do.

We need good crapbookers out there - if not them, who?
