Scrapbooking Passes Time in Winter

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Winter is often a busy period that encompasses the holiday season and New Year celebration. However, once those festivities come to a close, depending on your location the temperature usually remains low for a number of months after. This forces individuals to keep busy by investing time in projects around the house.

Scrapbooking is a great indoor activity that allows you to get rid of the pile of photos and store them in a way that allows everyone to enjoy the moments captured in the pictures. Fiskars has several unique products that aim at enhancing your scrapbook page.
