Something to think about

I saw this post yesterday on Two Peas and I just can't stop thinking about it.
Is scrapbooking losing its popularity? I have to admit (and I really hate to admit it) but so much of what the ladies posted has rang true with me. I was a die hard and now I feel like I'm losing my devotion to this hobby. I keep trying to tell myself that it's only because I've moved my scrapping room and can't get my wits about me yet, but I don't know. Maybe I'm just going through a phase or something? I used to eat, drink & sleep scrapping and now I don't feel that same "oomph" for it. The worst part--and this I really hate to admit--when I went to my not so local LSS on Saturday, I didn't get crazy excited over anything. There was a time I would nearly hyperventilate in a scrapbook store! So tell, what do you think about all of this and is there a cure for me?

Wow. A little too close to home for me. In all honesty, I too have lost that twinkle in my eye. I appreciate the art of it all, and still enjoy creating, just not at a spastic rate like I used to. And I'm okay with that.
Very interesting Gigi, thanks for sharing.

Okay, so your post today had me thinking. I had to blog on it. Check mine out. Hugs!

i know for me - when the comraderie dies down on certain boards - so does my spirit. i've been in a funk too. maybe the two of us need to have a play date... and spark each other.... but no - you still have the passion - just hiding it a little...

wow, glad im not alone! I just went to my Store yesterday, spent 28.00! Got what i needed but wasn't thrilled... Everything you said Gigi, i can relate... It's scary. I think we all tend to get a little burnt out you know? I hope thats what it is. I did join a contest just recently to try and get myself motivated again!

Wow, I totally feel that way sometimes too. I feel burnt out right now, like I've hit a brick wall. LOL! Glad to see some of your pages in the gallery lately!

I go through long spurts where I'm just not feeling it, so I can relate to you in that aspect. Then the desire magically reappears. I find that what usually sparks me back to scrapland is when I have a burning desire to scrap a particular pic or event or a new technique. It's not like I'm scrapping just to get it done...I'm scrapping with passion. That's when my mojo returns.
