Welcome to another installment of Burning Question, where it’s your turn to share your thoughts!
A couple of days ago on Facebook, I saw an interesting conversation about Project Life on Christine Newman aka Listgirl‘s FB page that went something like this:
Random Male FB Friend: Hobbies shouldn’t be causing you anxiety. The moment it stops being fun… stop. My $0.02.
Christine: Tell that to every scrapbooker. I don’t know any scrapbooker that doesn’t feel some kind of anxiety or guilt about NOT scrapbooking, or even scrapbooking.
Which got me thinking…
Why is it that scrapbooking and guilt seem to go hand in hand?
I’d say just about every scrapbooker could tell you that it does, but why is that?
Is it due to the time-focused nature of scrapbooking? Is it somehow a female-based trait (since men don’t seem to have these same reservations)? Or is it simply something that has become accepted as a part of scrapbooking culture?
I admit despite my best intentions to keep my scrapbooking relatively guilt-free, there are definitely times when I feel like I’m not doing enough. Which is kind of crazy because shouldn’t I be playing by my own rules?
So I’m curious to hear from you!
Do you suffer from scrapbooker’s guilt? Where do you think this whole crazy idea of scrapper’s guilt comes from? And what can we do to banish guilt from our scrapbooking once and for all?
