Crop today starting at 3 pm

The sun is out, the snow is melting and it is TIME TO CRAFT! I will be at the King County Library Service Center around 3 pm to open the doors for our crop.

Crop for today is postponed for now!

Hey crafters
It is snowing hard at my house right now so I am going to postpone our Crop day start time until 2 pm. I will make a decision at 2 whether it looks like the snow is stopping/melting or just hanging around.

Disneyland Parade

Darcie and I were lucky enough to go to Disneyland one of the evenings when we were in California. They had an AWESOME Mickey's Soundsational Parade and we taped the whole thing- plus took about 100 photos.
It was evening so some of it might be a little dark. I am always amazed how Disney does such a great job with everything in their parks, entertainment, cleanliness, customer service, etc. It was a really fun night.

A Cute and Bright Mini Album for your weekend

Hi Chicks

I thought I would post a few photos of a fun little project we made as a kit for our last retreat. We wanted something bright and cheery to put in everyone's goodie bag- and this little 6x6 mini album was just the trick.

We love the bright colors as we are all looking forward to spring!

Happy Saturday!

CHA: Day 2.5

Man, I'm not sure what the deal is, but I've had a terrible time trying to write and post this. We had the slooooowest connection at the hotel Tuesday night and after hanging out and using every last bit of energy at Disneyland, neither Kerry nor I had the patience to wait for the internet’s spinning wheel of doom. Yesterday our flight was delayed and I had trouble with the internet at the airport – yuck! Now Blogger’s being silly and won’t update my draft. Fourth time’s a charm? Good grief! =P

Kerry and I were able to get through the rest of the show as well as to a lot of non-scrapbooking parts. Again we found kind of the same - the manufacturers are releasing several lines a few of which we like and a few that were so-so. The hard part is that we're here looking and planning for future products so while we may have liked a paper line and would use it for personal scrapbooking, they weren't necessarily something we could see using for a class or online kit. We discovered that Heidi Grace is back and is designing under the name Clever Handmade - so excited to see what she comes out with in the future - remember those cute witch's shoes and spiders she always had at Halloween? We like a couple of the new Pink Paisley lines. Adorn it has some cute paper, fabric and buttons coming out. Basic Grey has fabulous paper and embellishments as always. Fancy Pants and My Little Shoebox have cute lines being released as well. Jenni Bowlin has some punches coming out that I can't wait to play with and Heidi Swapp has a fun travel line coming out – I love her little photo covers that make any photo look like a polaroid. Tons of stuff!

Keep an eye on Facebook as we’ve put some photos of our finds on there. Also, we have a library crop, a couple retreats and a workshop coming up so check your calendars and come scrap with us!

Happy Scrappin’!
