How much time do you spend scrapbooking each week?

I used to spend about 3 hours, but I haven't been lately because I lost all of my supplies in our fire... I've replaced them now and I'm going to start again, I want to try and find more time than I did before though...

First let me say WELCOME to the board!!!!

That is terrible about your house fire, I can't even begin to imagine what was lost. Did you lose a lot of pictures? I was at a crop where they were advertising someone that would place all of your paper pages on a digital CD just in case. Maybe I should look into that a little more seriously.

I see that you are expecting soon, so it is a very good thing that you are stocked back up on your supplies, because scrapbooking the little ones is the most fun! Especially all those first and things you just can't get enough of (like baby smiles, love those).

And if you have any pages done and you are up to it, be sure to post them in our gallery section. I love getting inspiration from other peoples work.

As for your question, I try to spend about 3 hours a week minumum. But if it is a good week, probally 5. But I am terribly known to spend hours on just one page, so sad to say that I still even at 5 hours don't get much done.

The blinky is clickable!!

Thanks :-)... We lost about two thirds of our printed pictures, and a lot of the ones we did get out have some water damage, thankfully though I had my laptop with me at the time and we have a lot of our more recent pictures saved on there.

Sad to say, but I only spend about 1-2 hours per week scrapbooking but that is not an every week thing. I really need to get my mojo!

Since teaching my class this month I have been scrappig aroun 5-6 or more a week depending on the page. Next month I plan on going to 2 of the Friday night crops that will be hosted by our LSS from 6pm-midnight. I really want to get DD's book caught up, and my book too.

I know what you are going through. About six years ago we lost everything in a fire. I lost just about all my oldest dd's pictures. Now I have all my pics on discs and I keep one of them in a fireproof box and I give discs to other family members to keep safe. I know it is obsessive. LOL

I have not been able to devote much time to scrapbooking just yet. I have just got started and I do not have a lot of tools so I have to wait until either my friend has time or we go to a crop.

I AM SO EMBARRASSED!!! I am a SAHM and it seems like I NEVER get to scrap unless it's on the weekend!!! I haven't done any pages in what seems like MONTHS!! I am very good at taking pics and getting them printed, though. I have them all organized in an "under-the-bed" container and in time/date dividers . . . even have them separated out by which album they will go in!

I guess making more time to scrap will be on my "to do" list!!!

Not much time at all. Fritz doesn't nap much, my husband works a lot plus goes to school, and I cross stitch, quilt, and like to read in addition to scrapbooking. Maybe I'll start getting together with my husband's boss's wife or my mom to scrapbook.
