Today I wanted to shift to the other side of the design spectrum for a change and show you something a little different: arts & crafts, or more specifically, scrapbooking. There's so much room for creativity in scrapbooks because it's simply for you. You don't have to worry about the needs of the client or audience, you're completely free to experiment to your hearts content. It's an opportunity to let your personality shine through and, not to mention, an excellent way to remember the good times in your life. And we all need a little reminiscing sometimes.

Of course not all of us have the patience, time, or money (they can get very pricey!) to make scrapbooks. But maybe if you have a weekend to dedicate to it, you should definitely try it out! Perhaps you're having a baby soon or it's your anniversary with your girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband, there's no doubt that they'll be touched with your act and your children will look back in a few years and thank you for keeping beautiful memories of their childhood!

Give it a try and feel free to share with us your own crafty creations like the ones you're about to see! You can also drop me a line on twitter or facebook, I'd love to hear from you!
