To scrap or not to scrap: why you should love scrapbooking.

So it occurred to me out of the blue that I had this scrapbook, where I pasted clips and pictures, and I decided to share it with you. A scrapbook is a book that contains memorabilia. In 15th century England, common place books became popular (because they included a compilation of information like recipes, quotations, letters, poems and so on).

No, I’m not a football fan, I don’t hate it though and I don’t understand why some people get crazy over it😱. There was this time in secondary school, when our Art teacher took us on an excursion to the National Theatre. I bought some artworks at a really affordable price (though good for me, the art enthusiast, African artists need more credit and appreciation than that).
