Did you know?

It's almost November and that means it's almost crop time! Wowza! Yep, it's just about here.

Don't forget to shop our vendors. I did the other day and can't wait to have my goodies delivered to the crop!

My computer is finally hooked up in it's new and permanent home. (no more remodeling for me for many years!) I've got way too many pictures to get printed before the weekend.

Don't forget about the challenge. You can make it before or at the crop. Ask our past queen (2 times) the prizes are great!

Hope you are ready for a fun time. I know I sure am looking forward to a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of life.

See you soon!

Everyone Wants to be A Queen

The layout challenge is a tradition at Crops2Remember, and is an activity our repeat offenders look forward to. This is how it works.

We supply a "theme" for the layout, and you can create any layout you choose (one-or two-pager), with any photos or content. The theme does not have to be the title, but should reflect the theme in some way. The layouts are voted on by your fellow croppers and the criteria is only what the voters feel about the layouts. The winning cropper is crowned the QUEEN OF THE CROP - with tiara and prize at our awards ceremony on Saturday night. The queen then gets to brag and gloat all day Sunday (we think that is the best part!) You can create this layout in advance, or when you arrive at the crop.

We will let you know the deadline for submission once you arrive (it will be due some time on Saturday).

The theme for this C2R Layout Challenge is: FALLING 4 YOU

For those of you who like creative challenges, there will also be a timed Design Challenge that will be announced at the crop. So there is another opportunity to stretch your creative wings for that also!

See below for how to order your own tiara from Diva Craft Lounge!

Everyone Wants to be a Queen!

Our Queen of the Crop earns the admiration and envy of all of us at Crops2Remember.

Her wardrobe is supplied by - herself.
Her transportation is supplied by - herself.
There are no endorsements or modeling contracts.
There is no first runner up to fill her shoes should she fail to live up to her Queenly responsibilities (plus we don't make her do anything!!)
There is no trip to Hawaii or a fur coat.

BUT, she gets an awesome tiara supplied by Diva Danielle Forsgren of Diva Craft Lounge.
Now, you too can be bejeweled like our Queen with your own tiara.
Order your own tiara (or other Diva-licious items) today for delivery to the crop. Shop here for Diva-tacular stuff, and here for tiaras. Use coupon code 412052004 for $5 off any purchase of $25 or more. And, put C2R in the comments section for free delivery to the crop. C2R is covering any shipping charges. Order by November 1.

Did you know that Diva Craft Lounge is the world's most listened to Internet craft show? Diva Danielle and Rayme Royale have listeners in 87 countries and have done over 500 interviews since 2004! You can hear it every Wednesday 12-1PM PST. All shows are archived and podcast for listening on demand.

Oh, and the new book - Designing with the Divas - will be out December 2. Ask for it everywhere!!! (Did we mention that both Nan and Jessica have projects in the book? We didn't? Well, we do!)

Some things to bring for the weekend

Some of you have been asking about some things to bring for the weekend. I'll try to answer it all here.

Yes, you can bring printers, laptops, cricut, lights, etc.... It is recommended to bring your own extension cords. The room is well lit. We do open the curtains on the windows. But if you like more light, feel free to bring a table light.

As for your scrap stuff. I say bring it all. You can always keep what you don't need in your room or in your car. There will be room under the tables too. You can leave your scrap stuff in the crop room the entire weekend. If no one is there, the room is locked. Nan and I have the keys for the room. If you want to pull an all nighter, go ahead! We do stay up pretty late too. It's your weekend to scrap! So we don't want to limit your time in the crop room.

It is recommended to bring a sweatshirt for the crop room. There is AC and we try to keep it cooler rather than too warm. Check out the post for Cafe Press for some great C2R logo wear. I have the hoodie sweatshirt and love it!

Bring your pj's for the pj party. Bring comfy scrap clothes.

Don't forget to check out our friends who are offering deals just for us. Your order will be delivered to the crop. There are also craft and scrap stores fairly close by. Plus we will be visiting 2 of the local scrap stores for shopping if you want to do some more shopping. I do recommend going!

See you all in a few weeks :)

Need information for crop

Hello Ladies

I think I am finally on the mend. I got sick last Friday and it just kept getting worse. Finally on Wednesday I am starting to feel better. But prior to that, about 2 weeks ago, I was sick. Ugh. It is just non stop around here. I really do need this weekend!

I have been updating the email list for November. Thank you to those of you who have already replied. I have added some more emails to the list and sent out another email again tonight. You will be getting many more emails before the crop for crop details and asking for information we may need. But if you ever have questions, just email me at naomicrops2remember@yahoo.com

So, if you have not already responded AND if you did not get the email, please email me and I will make sure your email address is correct.

Here is the information we need:

T shirt size

emergency contact name and phone number

favorite snack and non-alcoholic drink

Also, please have payments in by Oct. 24. If you have a question about your balance, just send me an email.

Think that's it for now. I need some sleep!

See you all in November.
