ARE YOU AN ARTIST OR A SCRAPBOOKER????

This question has been coming up here and there, so I thought I would explain my thoughts on this one.
For me it is easier to say I'm an artist rather than a crocheter, gardener, scrapbooker, seamstress blah blah blah!
I've always been really crafty, but there's this big hole in my gut that yearns to be with the local artists. I don't paint or sketch or do pottery, I'm not a performer and I don't write for other people! But I feel sometimes if you don't fit into one of those genra's people don't take you seriously.

I just read that the SB industry beat out golf for sales in North America, thats serious stuff!

My true thought on this is: If you "create" anything at all and it pleases you then its ART, so you must be an artist.

My dictionary defines artist as: One who makes his craft a fine art, devotte!

Its time ladies to redefine the term for all Scrapbookers, WE ARE ALL ARTISTS!
THIS IS A FINE ART! ONE REAL FINE FANTASTIC ART!
