So I fell off the wagon of posting every day for a little while. I have to admit the first day (Thursday) was intentional. I remembered just as I was getting ready to go to bed that I hadn’t blogged for the day, but I decided … ah, let’s just see if anyone notices…

Congratulations Mary B for catching me in my lack of posting. I will be sending out a fun little crafty care package for you shortly (and don’t fear blog readers… I will take a picture of it and post it after I send it).
Now as for the other three days that I didn’t post… well, I was very busy getting ready for my first crop! I had 10 croppers at the Chatham VFW on Sunday and we had great fun! Lots of games, challenges, stamping, Big Shotting (I think I made up a new verb…) and, of course, scrapbooking!

Here’s some highlights….

Croppers had access to ALL my punches and ALL my stamps and ALL my Big Shot dies….
I had an inspiration table with a few different projects and two scrapbook albums for ideas. I also had a sale table with lots of retired product and paper available (no picture) and we had a yummy lunch of roll-up sandwiches, Ceasar Salad, Cape Cod Potato Chips and Soda…. For dessert we had cookies and lots of this….
Most importantly, though, we got lots of work done… (well I only got 7 cards made… but the other ladies were very productive):
Bee was catching up on a Disney album while Missy worked on a Halloween page for one of my many challenges (Congratulations to Julie for winning the challenge contest and being selected out of all of the participants to earn a free stamp set!)

Linda worked on some holiday tags for some upcoming swaps (and a few scrapbook pages mixed in)

Nicole was hard at work on a family album…

And Julie, Sherry and Barbara worked on Holiday cards, “Big Shotting” and spooky little treats….

Overall a really fun day — although I was POOPED at the end and I think I drank too much soda as I was up ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Tossing… turning… tossing… turning…. Oh. bother.
That is why I am off to bed early (at least for me). I’ll show you the cards I made at the crop over the next few days.
In the meantime, here is the make-n-take the ladies made at the crop. They actually made at least two … one to keep and one to give to Dream Day on Cape Cod. The cards will be used for the families coming to the Cape for the organization’s annual holiday weekend:
I finished up the rest of the cards tonight and will be getting in touch with the executive director, Kathleen tomorrow. We also raised $75 for Dream Day to use for whatever else they might need in the coming months.
Thanks for attending my first crop ladies… I had a blast!
