    I have been scrapbooking for a couple years. I meet with a group once a month for a few hours in someones home. I enjoy this immensely. I was wondering if there was anyone who uses these skills to make crafts for craft shows and if they can share with me what really sells.. where is the demand.. and what they enjoy most about scrapbooking. I collected supplies for years before starting and am so slow still yet putting it all together.. I enjoy making cards and novelty items to use as gifts for friends and family..Also if someone can sharehow they organize the supplies..

    HI Faith,
    I haven't tried scrapbooking, I used to enjoy doing crafts, especially buying baskets and covering them with material , lace beads, and filling them with goodies for the HOlidays and for gifts with other stuff. I also like to make photo albums covered in material and other stuff. Can make beautiful ones especially for wedding albums, but it's been awhile. I should take back up this craft for it kept me busy and away from food.
    You sure have lost alot of weight, congratulations to you. still awaiting my surgery date. Feel free to share your craft idea's would love to learn more, don't know how to crochet, maybe it's time I learned.
    Hope you have a good day.
    Newbie here, Donna
