While other areas are home to a number of large crops, Margaret said, “around here, they don’t have much for scapbookers to get together and do this sort of thing.”
In addition, she noted, scrapbookers tend to have large collections of items they hope to find places for in their books, and she hopes the crop will provide an opportunity for people to put those collections to good use.
People new to the hobby, Margaret added, should know that scrapbooks may be filled with whatever one fancies to put on their pages.
“It can pretty much be whatever you want to remember,” she said.
For instance, Margaret has multiple scrapbooks; one is devoted to documenting hiking trips she’s taken with her father, Jack.
The first photo in the book is from a trip the pair took to Poc-o-Moonshine when Margaret was 5 or 6 years old. The most recent photo is from a hiking excursion they took last fall, she said.
“It’s great for preserving memories,” Margaret said.
In addition, the teen, who is also involved in performing arts, has another book that documents the various plays and concerts she’s participated in.
“You can do whatever you want with it,” Margaret said of a scrapbook. “There’re really no rules.”
