Friday night I decided to go to a crop the next morning at my local scrapbook store, the Stamp and Scrap Station. When I called to see if there were any spots left for their all day crop I found out that there was only one person signed up. So I called Sarah and asked her to come stay the night and go with me to the crop the next day.
We had a wonderful time just yakking about nothing in particular and working on scrapbook pages. Sarah made some little accents for pages, too. The only downside for her was that she didn't have many photos so I let her use some of my doubles. She likes scrapbooking pictures of my kids for her album. She babysits them at least once every two weeks, and Kevin adores her. She's going to be a good mom someday.
While we were there I got 6 12x12 pages done and 24 blog album pages done! I outscrapped the competition by a long shot. Sarah and I had the crop room to ourselves for the first two hours, and then four other people ended up coming. I met a woman who is planning to start homeschooling her oldest this Fall. We were very like-minded so we talked almost non-stop.
The best news of the evening was that I finally got my courage up to bring some of my hand made scrapbook kits and items to show the store owner. She told me that I absolutely MUST teach a class at her store! She says that her classes typically have 8 to 10 people signed up, paying $15 each and that I would get to keep all the profit after I subtract however much it costs me to make up the class kits. I have to make the kits using material from her store, but I get a discount. I'm excited and nervous all at once! I've always wanted to teach scrapbooking classes. I'll be sure to post pictures of the kits I come up with. I've already got several in mind!
