So far so good for the 9th! Are you thinking A's in Rosedale Center?

I don't think I will be able to make the 9th. We have a few things planned that weekend and I'm not sure Friday night will work. If by chance it does I would love to come.

Sorry guys, I've been super busy dealing with a very sick cat from a food recall causing salmonella...she's finally getting better after several vet trips and drugs,etc..

Anway, yes - let's do Roseville on the 9th! I just called and reserved so ask for me or Table 2.

Angel - let us know what your Sept schedule looks like, scrapfest weekend is my only plans right now.


Have a Nice Day!

Hi ladies! I'm just seeing this thread. =) Can someone fill me in (so I don't have to read all 12 pages )

I'm over in the TC myself, close to Blaine. What's the scoop? =D

Hello... there is a small group of us that gets together (we try monthly) for a crop. Typically it has been either at A's in Roseville or a house in Dayton. Anyone is welcome to come!

Looks like our next one is next friday night at Archivers.

I'll call tomorrow!!

Perfect! Thanks so much for the tip! I'm always looking to get out and find other crafty friends. ^_^ I'll have to see when my schedule's free. =D I've got three small kids, and so trying to work around hubby's schedule tends to be tricky sometimes.

But I do try and keep up on my PL album and am desprately needing a crafting retreat to get some pages finished up. =D I just switched from 12x12 layouts to PL in June and catching up isn't as easy as it was in my head.

Does anyone else here do PL?

Ooh, the 9th works for me, I'd love an outing! Friday is my day off and I'm in the mood to crop.

Cloud Weaver, we'd love to see you. My experience is that this is a friendly and easy going group! Rosedale A's seems to be a pretty central location for most of us, and it's a nice big store.

ETA: Oh, and on the PL question--I don't do PL at this point, but since I have a cast on my hand for a while yet, my current scrapping style is PL-like! I'm scrapping some past vacations using divided page protectors, working for me way better with the cast. Anything goes!

Cloud Weaver - welcome! We'd love for you to join us if you can, if not on the 9th, watch for Sept - we've been trying monthly so I am sure we'll get a Sept date soon too..

2 of the MN Peas I know do PL, Barbie and Angel- Barbie does hers digitally and Angel uses traditional style, she does 12x12 pages as well both of them mix it up when we get together.

Glad to hear you can come Lynette - cast and all! Lynette - maybe ping Paisley's Garden and see if she wants to join us on Fri? Hope Rhiannsmom is able to join us too, depending on her schedule and picking up her daughter I am sure.


Have a Nice Day!

Paisley's on vacation this week I think. And I'm missing the August dates at Dayton for the same reason. Summer's hard! But, we have to get out there and make those memories before we can scrap them, right?

We have a busy week but I think Friday night is open so I am going to try to join you. I need to get lacrosse and soccer from this year done so I will have to get pictures printed. Looking forward to seeing some of you again Friday.

I have been following the posts but so far none of the days have worked out to join you all...but I wanted to share this upcoming scrapbook fundraiser:

Info

I was able to attend last year and the food was wonderful. There were several make & takes and different booths with product for sale. Lots of drawings for prizes and they just announced that some manufacturers have been donating product for giveaways.

I have linked to the PDF for registration.

Going to check you link out... thanks!


Just wanted to let everyone know that I am signed up for Friday night and I can't wait to meet up...not bringing a whole lot maybe a few cards or a couple of predesigned layouts. Just looking forward to getting out.

BUT wanted also to let you know that my FIL is exhibiting end of life signs per the hospice nurse so if I'm not there you know where I am at.

Sorry I wasn't able to join you guys tonight! Brent and Delaney went to a concert, and I am home with Derrick.

Things are about to get crazy in my life. Delaney is moving here from Georgia in two weeks! She's going to live with us instead of her mom. Derrick is still undecided. But we've been scrambling to get her registered for school and make all the necessary plans and arrangements to get her moved up here in time for school. She flies back to GA tomorrow after two weeks here, and will have two weeks to pack and get things wrapped up there. I have to rearrange everything at home and turn my scraproom into a bedroom for her. Good thing I've been moving more and more to digital, I guess huh?

Anyway. I hope things have settled enough for me to join you guys in September!

Rhiannsmom, good luck this week I am sure its not going to be an easy one... Let me know if you want a break and we can arrange another crop soon!

How is everyone? Thread is quiet... Barbie - are you going to the State fair to try all the food on a stick? I am headed there tomorrow.

I've been all work no play lately and totally looking forward to having some time to scrap again. Everyone ready for back to school time?


Anyone up for some night in Sept? Maybe the 12h/13th of Sept? Weekend before Scrapfest? or the weekend of Oct 5th somewhere?

Post some updates on what you're all up to lately I miss chatting!


Have a Nice Day!

I'm scrapping tonight... actually headed to Goodwill in STW after work today and totally scored again! Got 8 Distress Ink pads and refills for like $10, bought one of those CM small guillotine trimmers for $4 but already don't like it and a huge stack of laminating 8 1/2 by 11 sheets for $1.50

Not sure what September brings beyond Scrapfest but I did post about a weekend event at the church in Wyoming the weekend after. It's Friday night and Saturday. 10 miles from the house so if someone wanted to they could crash on the couches at my house.

You can have it... I tried it again tonight and maybe it's a bad one but it had trouble cutting.

Anyone else hit the 30% A's sale?

I had 24 days left on the warranty of my mac so took it in to the Rosedale store and stopped on my way home... got a few of the say cheese line (I already pre ordered so I just picked up what I wanted double of)

Hi!

Sorry I've been MIA lately. Things have been beyond crazy since May.

Delaney arrived from Georgia in the wee hours Monday morning, and started her first day of school 5 hours later. Our apartment is a jumble of boxes and stuff right now. I had to give up my craft room/office for Delaney, and I have no place to put everything that was in that room and walk-in closet. Not to mention, all my floors are being replaced and I have to basically pack up and move out for 2 days. And Brent's been buried with major deadlines at work. So total chaos.

I doubt we will get to the fair this year. I really wanted to. But we are going to try to do the Renaissance Festival in September.

I would love to get together and scrap sometime, as soon as I get my apartment back in some kind of order! I miss you guys!

I could scrapbook Saturday 14th if that would work, otherwise all my Saturdays in Sept are booked. I could do Fri night 6th, 13th, or maybe 27th. Any of these dates work for you guys?

I have been avoiding Archivers as I spent enough for classes for Scrapfest and always want to shop after that, so saving it up.. plus the OA warehouse sale is that same weekend - so I am sure I will spend more there too!

Anyone want to look at going back to Crafts Direct before winter? I checked their calendars and the Oct dates are 11th and 12th, when I am on vacation, but I could do Nov 9th. Anyone interested?


Have a Nice Day!

Bumping this back up to see when everyone is available. I think that I could do the 14th or one of the Fridays. Crafts Direct sounds like a great idea too. Let's see if we can get a date confirmed for another get together. It's been way to long since; I have been able to attend.

September is kinda crazy full... I'm booked until Scrapfest then the weekend after my friend is having a crop at her church Friday night and Saturday all day. It's in Wyoming which is just north of Forest Lake. It's open to anyone and like $15 for Friday and $30 for Saturday which includes breakfast (brunch) and dinner along with snacks. If you are interested let me know and I can forward the info to you!

I doubt I can do the 14th. That's Derrick's birthday, and Delaney's is the 15th. But I could probably do a Friday night this month. But not this week.

I'm cropping on the 28th at a church in Wyoming which is just 5 miles from Forest Lake. It's $25 and includes brunch, dinner, snacks and drinks.

Either of Sarah's weekends works for me, on either Friday night or Saturday. This, folks, is the result of being an empty nester with no kids local, and no grandkids to even consider! Maximum flexibility! Oh, maybe it's having no life? DH is gone a lot these days on 2-week trips to Europe.

The OA warehouse sale doesn't interest me this year, given that !) they've only produced what, one line this year? and 2) I bought pretty much everything I wanted last year, and have used practically nothing of it!

Life has been crazy for me lately, and I don't have nearly the free time I used to since Delaney moved up here from Georgia. Having a teenager in the house is time-consuming! Plus Brent has been traveling a lot for work--he's been gone since Sunday morning this week.

I am hoping that things will settle down into an easier routine soon.

I've got nothing concrete on my calendar after this weekend, as far as weekends go, but that's always subject to change at any time, lol.
