Scrapbooking on the Today Show
Spoke with Georgie on the Today Show about online scrapbooking, which is becoming a very popular past time and is said to be a new form of social networking.
There are three websites that seem to be the top of the bunch – www.pinterest.com, www.scrapo.com and www.cropmom.com. - Pinterest is a virtual pinboard that allows you to organise and share all the beautiful things you find on the web with your friends or people who have similar interests.
Users can browse pin boards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration. It is claimed that people use pin boards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favourite recipes.
The reason online scrapbooking is becoming trendy is because it requires no craft skills, it's easy to use and allows members to collect images from all sources and keep together in one place. Many use it as a vision board to focus on what they want to help work towards making it a reality. Home decorating, favourite recipes, planning a wedding and family albums are the most popular board categories.
