I had lost a part to my paper cutter when we moved, and I went to Michaels to see if they had the replacement part. An older lady and a woman who looked like her daughter came up to me and said "Do you scrapbook very much?" I said yes, a lot! The woman explained she was making a scrapbook for her son and daughter in law who just got married, and could I help her shop for her supplies. I got to go through the scrapbook aisle with her and tell her all about the different products and make recommendations. I didn't realize until I was looking through a newbie's eyes like that how daunting it all can be for someone who's never done it before. When I got into scrapbooking, there weren't all of these gadgets and tools, and I just learned as they came out. It was fun and refreshing to go back to the basics.

Just thought I'd share

That is neat. I bet they were so glad for the help. I know I still feel overwhelmed by it all sometimes!

That must have been cool to show them things and help them get the right tools. I think it is very hard as a beginner. I have a girlfriend I helped over the summer to get a scrapbook done for her 2 year old son. It was fun to teach her but I could also tell it was overwhelming to her. In the world of scrapbooking there are just so many neat things to use!!!
