Scrap-a-holics, my story
My name is Antoinette Venter, I am the owner of Scrap-a-holics and I am delighted to tell you a little bit about our website, myself and why we are doing what we are doing.
Scrap-a-holics have been in business for the fourth year now and have achieved so much during this past four years that we can only say "God bless!". My heart gets all warm and fussy when I think about the wonderful people I have met through this wonderful hobby that eventually became a business. To me Scrap-booking has become a way of life. I love the fact that you can document your life and that you can leave that as a legacy to your children and family.
This is my son Divan, the reason why I am so passionate about scrapbooking!Most of my scrapbooking pages features him of course!
My friends and family says he has a "O my mom is going to scrapbook this" smile when he poses for photos. I believe that growing up with scrapbooking he knows exactly why taking a lot of photos is important and as a norm he doesn't mind posing for the photos. Of course, he is not always in the mood but even those photos come in handy too when you want to scrap something else (not only happy photos all the time)
My mission was to make sure that if I died “today” I have shared my love for my son (and my family) through my scrapbooking. But scrapbooking is more than that, it is also a celebration of our lives, a tribute to the people that we share it with and of course creating memories that lasts. In the end it is all about the photos, so we our job is to make the photos tell the story.
In life there are so many things that is really sad, people who are not as privilage as we are to have memories to share. I think it is very important that we appreciate the life we have and celebrate it every single day we are in this world. My son knows that his mom is addicted to Scrapbooking and he understands why I am doing it, so he already has a passion for "memory keeping" - so mission almost accomplished (LOL)!
We get involved in our own community and also travel to present classes in other areas. I believe in investing in your society and keeping the hobby alive. Once a month we present a class at our studio, situated in Trichardt, where we just scrap, chat and enjoy good company (and cake!). We hosted the National Scrapbooking day for the third year in a row in January 2019 and are very proud to say that it was a huge success and just is getting better year upon year.
Our slogan is: Because we are all addicted to Scrapbooking.
If you have any suggestions or ideas for us or would like to do blogs for us, please get in contact with us, we would LOVE to hear from you!
Happy Scrapping dear Scrap-a-holic!
