Hi FL peas, my name is Alison and I'm in north-central Florida. I went to my first CKC in JAX in August and am hoping to go to Expo in May with a friend. I've been scrapping since the late 90s and got into it more back in 2009 when I bought my first Cricut and discovered message boards and the inspiration and enabling that the produce . Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

It is supposed to be colder tonight! We went to an outdoor flea market and just about froze to death.

I'm doing the shop hop. This will be my first. Piktails is renting a van to take a bunch of ladies to all the west coast stores.

We popped over to the Magic Kingdom this morning and Oh BOY was it COLD! I think that it was the first time I've ever been driven out of a theme park because of the cold...

Tonight the electric blanket will be on AGAIN. And people laughed at me for buying an electric blanket in Florida. Ha!

Orlando pea here - just stumbled upon this thread! I actually think I went to a Sunshine Scrappers crop around the time I first moved here 10 years ago (small world!) and I remember the group being so nice! There was a drawing for a door prize and I think I still have that little circle punch! It was my first scrap outing right after we moved here do it meant a lot to be so welcomed. So hello again to everyone...

To the Pea asking about Scrappy Boutique, yes they did close (Jan 26, I think) but I also heard they are still active on their website and of with classes and kits even though the storefront closed.

I'm bookmarking this thread - thanks FLCindy for starting it!

You're brave to go out in the cold ladies!

I don't know what I hate more...heat and humidity or the cold temps. Heat would be okay w/o humidity.

Today was a beautiful day even though it was cool for my taste. The air smelled like the first promise of spring up north. I took DS to the doctor and still wore long pants and a thick sweat jacket coat.

We did go to Animal Kingdom yesterday! We got there around noon and started walking out about five, right when the sun started going down. Holy crap it was cold and I had like three layers on plus gloves!

There were people walking around in shorts and flip flops!!

Sara,
The Sunshine Scrappers are still scrapping! You'll see Stacy's posts on this thread about the Sunshine Scrappers. I think a few ladies went to the last SS crop.

Hi there, I'm a mom of 3 living in Ocala. I work part time as a claims adjuster and life is so so busy. I'm hoping to get some encouragement to pick up my scrapbooking. I've been scrapbooking for about 8 years. I noticed my first child has tons of pages dedicated to herself and my third has almost none. How does life get like that? lol

The shop hop starts in March. I'm going March 2. I'll post about the stores and how it went after the event. It is actually called the treasure hunt.

Yes this weather is beautiful!


After a five year break, I'm back baby!!! Now help Bellies get her Groove back....

Any peas going to the 3 day crop at the Craftin' Cow in Punta Gorda near Fort Myers on March 1-3?

I am. Hope to meet some peas.


I love the smell of card stock in the morning.....


The Movie poster that is my avatar is very special cause my husband is in it and it won best film at the Canadian Film Festival in 2012. See it......It's super funny.

Have you been to a LSS lately?
YES! Whimsodoodle in St. Pete. Was fully stocked last Weds & almost cleaned out by Friday when I took a class with Donna Downey. They had hundreds of boxes sitting in the crop room waiting to hit the floor.

If so, what store did you visit? above
How was the stock? above

Are there new items from CHA?
YES! Amy Tan, Dear Lizzy, Studio Calico, Dina Wakely, Dian Reveley, the new gelato colours & oh so much more. I need to get a job there.

Have you taken classes lately?
Donna Downey panpastels & stencils.

If so, what classes have you taken?

Don't you love this cooler, yet GORGEOUS weather?
These are the few days a year that I really enjoy living in Florida.

I haven't been to my LSS since October But as I have plenty of supplies to keep me going, I tend to not let temptation get the better of me I do want to go cropping there at some point, April - are you game??

It's been really wet the past couple of days here in the north east. Thunderstorms, tornado watch and torrential rain. And humid. Gah. It's cooling down again now, rumours were going about that "flakes may form" over the weekend - lows of 28 overnight... I don't mind, that's a normal Feb temperature where I'm from
