Weight-conscious Scrappers may want to ditch the calorie counters the first week in May as ScrapBiz Members celebrate both “National Scrapbook Day” and “Eat Dessert First Week”. Independent Scrapbook businesses who are part of the ScrapBiz Business network will be sponsoring a variety of activities during the 1st Annual “Sweet Memories Event”
“Sweet Memories” is sponsored by Seattle-based ScrapBiz (http://www.ScrapBiz.com), which offers independent scrapbook businesses a variety of consulting, training and support services.
Once the domain of sentimental grandmothers equipped with Elmer’s Glue, family snapshots and blank albums, scrapbooking has become one of America’s hottest hobbies. Nationwide, scrapbooking has grown from a $1.5 billion industry in 2001 to more than $2.5 billion and growing, according to the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA).
“This celebration may seem like light news (except for the desserts),” says ScrapBiz founder Kim Guymon, “but ‘Sweet Memories’ highlights the importance of preserving our memories. Our members and their customers are helping to preserve and interpret family histories in ways that are more appealing to the younger generation. Every scrapper is an individual History Channel.”
