I don't scrapbook, I do write. I take pictures, I collect things, we travel, we do stuff. But I don't do the whole sit down and make beautiful pages and books. I would love to--but my 19 hour days preclude that. Well, this book made me see I need to make just a little more time and that I could make a little more time and that it was way way important to my family to make that little bit of time. I don't have to do the HUGE scrapook thing--I can make changes and bits of time to focus on my family and myself and create memories---and most importantly---some time and space for myself.

This book is about putting everything in perspective. It's not just a book about scrapbooking. It's a book about life, about creativitiy, about being a woman in this day and age, and living your life. I've loaned it to students, to fellow teachers, to a few friends, and everyone has come away with something. (I even made my husband read some of it!!!) It's good.

This is a really wonderful book!! If you need any justification as to why you scrap, this will certainly give it to you. Even if you don't, you will be amazed by the parallel's the author draws between the basic elements of this 'hobby' and the 'real issues' in everyday life - I sure was. It was enlightening and uplifting.

All you scrapbook-loving, sister-hugging, friendly, mothering women will adore this book. Tasra Dawson shares a wealth of wisdom and spirituality within the context of useful scrapbooking tips and stories. Her rare knack for compassion, encouragement, originality, and genuine happiness is backed by amazing productivity. (Just skip to her web site to see for yourself.)Without a bit of hoopla, I recommend Real Women Scrap as an excellent guide, designed to help us all create better pages and better days.

This is a beautiful book, inside and out.

For both novice and expert scrappers alike, Tasra Dawson's collection of practical tips, real-life stories, and sisterly advice will inspire you to step forward with your dreams.

"Open your eyes to a new way of seeing beauty in the ordinary," she writes. "And you will experience a dramatic change in your daily perspective."

Tasra Dawson's zeal for helping others transcends the realm of scrapbooking. Wearing the hat of a life coach, she shares how key page elements--focus, simplicity, balance, and boundaries--can also be applied to joy-filled, creative living.

There's even a chapter on how mistakes move us forward. Bloopers on a scrapbook page can be easily fixed with her helpful hints, as well as in life our mistakes draw us to God who can transform and enable us to be the best we can be.

This book has totally inspired me to get back into the joy of scrapbooking!
