What a great weekend!

Ladies, thank you SO much for a great C2R 1st Anniversary weekend! I had a wonderful time, got some of my own scrapping done (imagine that!) and thoroughly enjoyed the company of both old friends and new ones. In fact, my favorite part was at Saturday night's dinner: I looked around the room at everyone eating and realized that everyone was seated at different tables with people they had just met the night before, chatting comfortably over pizza. That's what I love about C2R ... the fast comaraderie!

A big Congrats to our Queen of the Crop, repeater Terrie D.! She worked and slaved over her Queen medal (each Queen must make one for the next scrapper selected to sport the crown) and after spending precious scrap time creating it at the crop, she, herself got to wear it, along with the lovely tiara (donated by the Diva Craft Lounge - thanks, Danielle!). And the "Scrappies" Golden Scissors Awards Night were a hit! At least those old deco scissors are good for something! :) More photos later! I hope you all made it home safely and get a good night's sleep ... see you all soon!

Thank you Everyone

Thank you to all our April croppers for another wonderful weekend. All our return croppers and new croppers. You are wonderful and I already miss you.
Thank you for all your kind words, encouragement, brilliant ideas, creativity and eagerness to return to the next crop and for being a great group of women to hang out with.
We sincerely thank you for all your suggestions and comments. It is your input that help to make these weekends a success and fun for everyone.
I know I had a great weekend and enjoyed meeting all our new croppers and seeing the returning croppers again.
I'm getting to bed early tonight as it is back to reality Monday morning. boo-h00 ;(
We will send out emails with more details of our November crop.
Happy scrapping and until we meet again.

Going to bed?!?!?!

I wish!!!! I am fighting allergies (anyone else suffering?) and I am trying to pack clothes (not a big priority, but I doubt anyone wants to see me cropping naked) and my SCRAP STUFF! Maybe another hour or two, or five ... I dunno ... I guess we'll see how bleary-eyed I am in the morning! See you bright and early at 9 a.m. SHARP!!!

(See my post below for stuff NOT to forget!!!)

3 more days to go

Hey ladies! 3 more days to go. Oh my! I have so much to do. It's been busy as ever here.

It's supposed to be a hot one this weekend. But remember it could be cool in the crop room so don't forget a sweatshirt. Oh, and check out cafe press for some crops2remember merchandise. Maybe a sweatshirt? Hat? Another shirt?

Thanks for all the comments from the newbies. Can't wait to meet you all!

If any of you need a little league base ball fix, I'll be headed to my sons game at 10:00 Saturday morning. Just a few minutes away. Go Dodgers!!!! I'm scorekeeper and don't like to miss his games.

Let us know if you have any questions about the weekend. Looking forward to seeing all of you on Friday!!

Only 4 days away!?!?!

Yipeeee! The light is at the end of the tunnel! We'll be cropping feverishly by the end of the week! Now I just need to find the time to pack ...

Also, I will be hosting a 4 x 4 acrylic mini book workshop on Friday that will be about a half-hour long. I think you'll find it fun and interesting! This is FREE to all croppers, so be sure to join in!

Hey! And don't forget stuff like table lamps, extension cords, your laptop (we have free Wifi), a camera and cell phone chargers!!!

I'm relaxed, how 'bout you?

Today I got a massage from Melissa in her home studio ... and I am feeling pretty calm and chilled out. A rarity for me! I am not much of a relaxer (seriously, I work on my computer while I watch a Netflix movie so I don't waste any time), but a massage is something that I HAVE to lay down and veg out for! And Melissa does a great job, working on problem areas I point out and making the most of my table time. You'll have your chance to relax and get your own table time during the crop! On the Friday and Saturday of the crop, Melissa will be available for massages privately in the organizers' suite. Fees are $1 per minute, 10-minute minimum, or an hour massage for $55. Got a problem area or have questions for Melissa? Email her at

Blog comments

hey gals. We have 3 comments for the Newbie drawing. It will be a close contest. You can still leave a comment on that post.

But, remember, anyone can leave a comment on the blog to get entered into yet another great drawing. The more you comment, the more tickets you get.

And, how many days, someone said 17! Wow! It's just about here. Are ya ready? Get packing!

There are craft and scrap stores close by and we will have some shopping excursions if you like, but don't forget your adhesive and favorite tools, all your fun scrap stuff and pictures too. Also, as mentioned before, we can't always keep the temperature in the crop room the way everyone likes it. So, be sure to pack a sweater or sweatshirt.

See you all in just a few weeks.
