It just moved to the cloud. Sometime around 6th grade, my girlfriends and I all discovered "Decoupage." (The craft had its origins in the 18th century -- go figure. Cutting and pasting and flaunting must all be basic human needs.)
Simply put, we cut pictures of stuff we really liked out of magazines and then glued them on to industrial black lunchboxes. And then we varnished our masterpieces with really nasty smelling shellac. (It was an era when our parents weren't too concerned about our inhaling toxic fumes, although I often wonder about the long-term impact that my decoupage obsession -- combined with radiation from my Easy-Bake Oven -- may have had on my life expectancy.
The concepts of "creating personal masterpieces" and "scrapbooking" are certainly not new. It's just entered the social media era in the form of Pinterest. So now, instead of photos and sayings being limited to teen fan magazines, LIFE and LOOK, and the New York Times, I have an unlimited arsenal of virtual decoupage. And I can share my "creations" and finds with other people and they can share my stuff with other people.
Saves me a ton of money on lunchboxes and shellac too!
