Such Fun!

I have never had more fun at a crop than the one I went to this weekend. It was an absolute BLAST! Scrap-funattic started this PJ crop. It begins at 5PM and goes until 5AM. And can I say, out of our group, Linda, Nikki and I ROCK!! We went the distance! Yea, and had an awesome great time.

Sarah admitted even before it started that she would not be staying till the end, but while she was there, she was a hoot!! I was not privy to all the goings on at her table, but they were sure having a great time.

As the evening went on we got more and more wild and quite a bit louder. But we never got in trouble or anything! Someone (I know who but I will protect their identity) made an amazing comment about how different and nice it was to see the employees of the store enjoying the crop and actually cropping, and not having to "hide" the fact that they were cropping. What an amazing concept. They were truly part of the crop and had as much fun as everyone else.

Thoughout the night everyone seemed to get alot accomplished. I think Nikki won in our group with 17 pages done. Linda rocked on a NEW, yes NEW project. And I really made some great headway on Get Scrappy II book. I only have two pages left to do and I think I can get one done this afternoon. It feels really good to be so close to completely this year long project. I have to say, I am going to work on some things other than Get Scrappy for awhile.

Final details are being checked off our list for Get Scrappy 4. Thanks to those gal pals (you know who you are) for stepping up and helping at the sale table Friday night. We so appreciate your help.

Registrations are coming in. Linda and I had a lunch meeting yesterday and got a phone for 4 more registrations. YEA!!! But there is still plenty of room, so spread the word! Last night Linda and I got together at my house and whipped through a project for the event. It is so good to be checking these things off our list. All the silent auction items have been numbered and catalogued. We have over 200 silent auction items. Can you believe that? And NO, Linda and I did NOT purchase all of them. SOME of them, but not ALL!

It's going to be a beautiful day today, so try to get out and enjoy this little touch of spring, if you can.

Off the Face of the Earth --- NOT!

Well it seems like forever since I wrote on this blog. I am not sure this is something I can keep up. I just am too "old school", I guess. If I want to talk to people I usually like to either have interaction with them either in person or by phone. This typing and waiting for a response, maybe, is soooo not me. In any case, life has been pretty busy.

I have been super pumped lately. I just got back from CROP-A-GANZA. What a weekend!
I got SO much done. You are not going to believe it. I almost have Get Scrappy II done. Yes, almost --- two - three pages left to do and it is FINISHED! And can I say, I will have met my personal deadline to have it done before Get Scrappy 4, thank you very much!

On top of doing that at Ganza, Linda and I got so many projects done for GS4. We are feeling a little less pressure when there are more and more checks on our seriously long checklist.

Hey, I need some help if any of you are interested. We are needing some volunteers to supervise the sale table at GS 4 for a couple hours on Friday night. Would anyone be interested in helping? Please let me know. We would appreciate any time you would be willing to give.

We have a final meeting with Beech Activity Center to go over final plans. Thats when we really know time is getting close. Exactly 30 days to go. Countdown is on.
Please let all your best scrappin buddies know, as I am sure you already have. Thanks so much. If they can come, there is still room. We are getting reservations DAILY!!

Speaking of Get Scrappy, I cannot tell you how wonderful Scrap-Funattic has been in support of GS. They have ALWAYS been on board, from the very first year. But this year they have just really been so supportive. I just am very thankful that they truly see the vision Linda and I have behind Get Scrappy. What a refreshing change.

Work is going well. Bruce is in the middle of a garage reno project that thankfully does NOT include me in any way.

This weekend we are going to the home show to get ideas and inspiration for future projects. Can you believe we have come so far as to think about more projects. Yes, time heals all wounds they say. The next projects for us will be mostly outside ones so those are always a good thing.

Well, I must go soak now --- get ready to go scrap at Linda's church tonight. Gathering more things for GS4. By the way, if anyone has any, and I mean any, hand-me-downs and stuff they don't want anymore, we would LOVE, LOVE to have it. The sale table can never have too much stuff.

Take care all!
