The 20th of October 2008, an eager bunch of people celebrated the first post in Skrotboken's blog. Now, nearly eight months later, we have had more than 24 000 visits and it´s time, not only to look in the rear mirror, but also to to plan for the future. When we look ahead we would like to see a broad variety in booth creations as well as in the creators themselves.

We wish to expand the Skrotboken-family and welcome a number of new members to the active group, working with and for Skrotboken. Skrotboken's manifesto proclaims that our goal is to be a common open arena were creativity can flow free. Our ambition is to widen the creative views through inspiration and challenges "outside the box". Our basic principle is that all creative activity has equal value and that everyone has something to contribute. We value, among other things, usage of whatever we have at hand in our homes, the thought that creative activity regardless of shape and/or performance fits under the same headline and that (our) children and younger people are given the possibility to be creative.

It is an incredibly fun and inspiring mission to be an active part of this, but as the saying goes "the more, the merrier". With more active people, we can obviously do more and thus contribute to diversity and creativity in the world of scrapbooking and paper crafts.

Taking care of and adminstre a creativity blog and related forums; at present only for planning and internal communication, do take time. Since no one of us can spend as much time on our hobby as we might want to do; and still want to keep and/or even increase Skrotbokens ability to be an active source of inspiration, we are now looking for inspirational creators and blog authors to expand our family.

Is this you?
  • Do you like to inspire others?
  • Do you thrive on challenges?
  • Are you active in your search of inspiration?
  • Do you have thoughts and ideas that you would like to realize?
  • Do you think and create out of the ordinary? Do you love to create with a twist? Do you include non-traditional materials in your creations? Do you use traditional scrap material in a "new" and interesting way?
  • Do you feel that the things you create do not match and fit into the general ideas?
  • Do you think it's important that the children are involved in the creativity process and are allowed to be creative?
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, you are just the person we are looking for.
