This weekend I’m at the Scrap It Southern Style Crop in Thomasville, GA. I’ve taught four classes, hung out with some fun ladies, and actually worked on a few projects. I’m amazed at how much these ladies accomplish in three and a half days! One lady made 150 pages, another is approaching 100 cards, and most have attended two or more classes.
And then there’s me. I brought four kits I’ve had in my stash from various CK Scrapbook Conventions and Creating Keepsakes University events that I’ve been meaning to make. In my three and a half days, I’ve completed one mini-album and two cards. Yep, one complete project and 1/4 of another (the card kit has six cards in it).
Even though I haven’t completed much I’ve had a great time and actually, I’m here to work so that has used up a good portion of my time. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! We’ve played name that tune, had a “cropped” activity (like the Chopped show on Food Network, but a scrapbook version), snacked A LOT, shopped, admired other people’s creations, and escaped from the normal daily routine. And I completed one and 1/4 projects Can you tell I’m really proud of that?
When you go to a crop do you get a lot of projects completed? Are you going for the social part (hanging with friends) or to get a lot accomplished or escape home for a weekend? I’d love to hear your experiences – what you enjoy about crops or retreats, how you plan, how often you go, etc.
Hope you had a great weekend and managed to fit some cropping time in, whether it was with a group or by yourself.
