January 2024 Meet our guest scrapbooker

Posted by Linda Gransby on

Hi I’m thirty-something Jenn, and I live on the beautiful Isle of Wight with my husband Earle and three furry kids (Gunner the dog and Smudge & Boris the cats).

Looking through my phone for a photo for this intro, I actually don't have a lot of photos of me! I must rectify that! I think we often forget to record ourselves in our scrapbooks. (Editor – exactly right, I think many of us are guilty of this!)

I work a very corporate job from home, and I discovered scrapbooking properly during the first Covid lockdown in 2020.

It now provides a much-needed creative outlet and escape from the corporate chaos. I am very grateful to Linda to have given me this opportunity to try something outside of my comfort zone (double pages and many photos!), I have enjoyed every minute.

I love documenting everyday life with family and friends, but also my previous life and travels as a Ships Navigator in the Merchant Navy. I now volunteer with the National Coast watch Institution and provide 'eyes along the coast'.

You can follow along with my scrapping if you would like on Instagram @confessions.of.a.scrapbooker
