Scrapbooking, Knitting, and Kitchen Fires

24 Feb

When I was younger I had this idea in my head that certain activities were meant for certain age groups.

Elementary kids play tag (and other playground games). Anyone from 13-17 passes notes and gossips. 20 something people party and drink. Most 30-40 year olds make babies and cook. And anyone 50 and higher watches birds, knits, and does scrapbooking.

Now even though I thought of this when I was younger, to some extent I was right. At least for anyone under 30 (sorry mom, you have made 5 babies and you start the kitchen on fire every time you cook, I think I’m right on this one).

Anyway, I realized that I am very stereotypical. Older people do knit and srapbook, but so do teens, 30 year old, and myself.

That is right.

I knit and scrapbook…or at least I used to.

I started knitting (and still haven’t finished) an article of clothing. It was going to be a scarf, but I would need way more yarn for that to happen. So, the possibilites are endless on what it could become, although it will probably just be something I knitted that has no use or value.

As for scrapbooking, I started doing it when I was volunteering at a nursing home. (See? I was right) But now that nobody prints their pictures anymore, I have no pictures to scrapbook.

But I did hear they re-designed those polaroid cameras that print instant pictures…so if you like scrapbooking and want a cheaper way to print your pictures…I would be sure to look into that.

Anyway, it is quite easy to scrapbook (at least compared to knitting).

If you take pictures, paper, markers, glitter, and maybe some stickers…along with a picture book of some kind, you can create a super awesome scrapbook.

Way better than a regular album.

So do you have a stereotypical activity that you enjoy doing?
