Cooking, traveling, shopping ... it can be overwhelming. So why not take advantage of the long Thanksgiving weekend and spend it scrapbooking? Scrapbooking is a fun hobby that lets you take all those photos of family, friends, pets, vacations — you name it — and put them together in a personalized, creative way. And you don't need to be an artist to make great scrapbooks.
There's lots to be had for the scrapbooking enthusiast at the Newport Beach Public Library. Enjoy movies and fiction that feature scrapbooking, and of course, a great selection of nonfiction how-to books.
In the romantic comedy "New in Town," Blanche (Siobhan Fallon) asks Lucy (Renee Zellweger), "Are you a scrapper?" when Lucy arrives in a small Minnesota town. Scrapbooking is a minor part of the movie but it's really cute, especially for "scrappers." One of the special features of the DVD is about the "The Folk Art of Scrapbooking."
