If you are like me, then there’s nothing you’d enjoy more than to relax with a cup of chai
and enjoy quality ‘me’ time with a hobby that is sure to continuously stimulate you, add value to you and your family, and has a totally flexible ‘guilt-free’ schedule ( ‘cos yearly festivals and pujas, family, work & kids, may need a little more of you at times).
But have you seen the ridiculous prices and terms & conditions of fixed classes around India for latest hobbies like modern scrapbooking lately? Mostly, you are sold a repackaged imported kit, or a remake of a product demo from the US or UK.
Instead of actually being taught enough skills to empower you to continue scrapbooking independently, you get to assemble the items in the kit. You are not sure if you can try it on your own, let alone where to get similar, cheaper supplies. So you are persuaded to enrol for a second class, or pressurized to buy one or more of the pricey imported tools and supplies used in the demo class (which will kill your budget before you have even started!)
And don’t even talk of those foreign US dollar-priced online scrapbooking courses!
It’s enough to stress you out!
But hold on:
I’ve already done all the hard work in formulating the desi style Scrapbooking System that works for you…
Hello, my name is Malisha. I am a happy, independent housewife & mum to two great children. In my ‘previous’ life I worked as a qualified Tax Auditor. We moved to Mumbai in 2008 after my brilliant husband was transferred from South Africa.
Although I was already 4 years into Scrapbooking, it is here in Mumbai where my inspiration to create an Indian flavour to scrapbooking truly blossomed. An expat mum who was teaching scrapbooking as an extra-mural activity at the International school started a free scrapbooking coffee morning for us mums. We ladies were quite a diversity of Indian nationals, NRI’s, expats and foreigners,most with little or NO Knowledge of Scrapbooking at all!
With hardly anyone in India aware of the new scrapbooking hobby then, let alone selling supplies for it, we scouted the station markets, book shops, stationery shops and intricate gullies of Crawford Market to find our equivalent substitute supplies.
After all, most big scrapbooking manufacturers and suppliers were in the US, and it was crazy prices to courier even the smallest of the smallest item to India. Since it was not an actual class, with no identical supplies even, we all had the freedom to create our own personal expressions. Soon, no two pages from our group were the same at all.
And that's where I unknowingly developed my Unique desi- style of Scrapbooking.
I started out as an ordinary boring housewife and mum, with no creative skills what-so-ever, but not any more...
Around 10 years back, when I was in South Africa, I had stumbled upon the latest craze going around in western countries-Scrapbooking. (I was second time pregnant with my daughter then, and must have stopped for a breather while admiring some baby or family pages in a scrapbooking shop window!)
Perhaps it was the analytical accountant in me, who saw how invaluable this hobby was, a double-benefit where I would actually be responsible for the for epic task of documenting my family’s history to pass down to future generations, while at the same time being rewarded with the benefits of a satisfying hobby.
Unfortunately, because I was a boring number-crunching Indian women ex-auditor, I was told (and even I myself believed) that I simply didn’t have the creative ‘eye’ or skills required in pursuing a meaningful and fulfilling past-time on my own while staying at home.
But, being the determined, stubborn Taurean bull that I was, Nothing Was Going To Stop ME! I had set my heart on Scrapbooking.
So, for the past 10 years, I have followed the most basic styles and techniques I’d come across in western Scrapbooking & craft magazines and sites I could find. I also attended professional classes conducted at huge Scrapbooking stores abroad, joined Scrapbooking communities and coffee mornings, and watched every free online tutorial around.
I even spent my hard earned money buying expensive, imported Scrapbooking kits and ready-made album kits and listened to all the advice of experienced scrappers , bloggers, and Scrapbooking teachers I came across.
But NOTHING WORKED!
Yes-I was hooked onto Scrapbooking BUT I just couldn’t put my finger on that missing link, you know, that restless feeling that there’s gotta be something more in it for me to be totally satisfied…
Then, I discovered the COLD HARD TRUTH about why I simply couldn’t totally relate to the westernised style of Scrapbooking.
I also used to think scrapbooking applied to western taste and lifestyles only
Looking back, I must have felt it in the early years, ‘cos even after a few classes, I was already deviating from the norm, being inventive and tweaking the designs a bit.
I did not know it then, but I was already substituting, chopping & changing and trying to make the pages tell MY story, not someone else’s.
I used to get so dis-heartened to find many elements of ‘who I am’ missing in the general pages being taught and in the black & white photos I had resorted to using - my dressing, festivals, culture, beliefs, colour palette, traditions were not being captured:
Here's some of my experiences that led me to create Indian-style scrapbooking pages:
So with these little inventions, I slowly realised that I was creating a unique Indian blend on my Scrapbooking pages, by spicing up the western Scrapbooking norms that I had been taught.
But before we roll out the red carpet, I want to share a shocking fact with you…
See, when I realised that my Scrapbooking pages were missing that ‘desi’ element, I thought I’d look to the internet to spark off some inspiration.
And now I’m going to reveal a little something that the Scrapbooking world doesn't want you to know…
The Scrapbooking World's Dirty Little Secret…
There is nothing available for the Scrapbooking tastes of the Indian Community not only in India, but Worldwide!
I was shocked when I discovered this! There are really no websites, blogs or magazines that (let alone focus), but even cater for a scrap of advice, or provide completed displays of simple Scrapbooking layouts of everyday Indian people.
You may find a small site or two displaying very basic Scrapbooking layouts, mostly from in-house kid’s workshops, or craft stores demonstrating advanced Scrapbooking techniques on how to use imported products.
But they are more focused on profiting from the ready-made kits, imported products or customised albums/explosion boxes that they sell on, rather than passing on knowledge in the art of Scrapbooking.
Why is it that the India or Indian Scrapbooking pages are of foreigners on holiday in India?
Sure, I would scrapbook one page of my family ‘holding’ the tip of the Taj Mahal, but I would also like inspiration from examples of normal Indian people in regular photos, depicting normal everyday delights.
Not foreigners or snake charmers or traditional village women.
I tell you there’s more to our vibrant daily lives than pashminas, elephants, national monuments and the slums of Dharavi!
Free Shipping of supplies and gifts apply only if you live in the US, (or UK, or AUS, or EU).
There are plenty of world-class scrapbooking websites and professional craft magazines out there offering ‘free’ giveaways and special offers, and discounts on supplies; and on classes too. I know, I have added my name to quite a few at one time or another. Only to be disheartened...
And my excited expressions would turn soo sour after watching a ‘I-too-can-do-that-tutorial’ only to realise that all the main supplies used were either from a certain manufacturer or a certain Scrapbooking store…neither them nor their agents to be found anywhere near India, and forget about the discount!
And then there’s the so-called expert - providing poorly written instructions with a couple of online photos of each step of a process, but of course there’s only one photo from one angle of the one most trickiest step-soo frustrating! I tell you. I have tried following plenty of these but end up beaten with more questions than answers.
