No, I’ve not taken up the hobby…

As a professional designer (BFA in Graphic Design with a dozen years as a designer, art director, creative director, etc.), I really had a fairly snobby opinion of the whole scrap-booking thing – until recently.

A friend of mine recently shared the “One Little Word” scrap-booking Web site with me. Sure, some of the pieces aren’t my style, but the thing that amazed me was some of the VERY high-quality conceptual graphic design that’s going on around these images. There are some of these artists (I’ll call them “artists” and “designers” now, where I would have previously called them “hobbyists”) have a natural sense of typography that I’ve sometimes longed for in formal design students. It’s really good stuff, and I stand corrected in my snobbery.

Keep up the great work ladies!
