It's been a couple of years since I went on my last weekend crop. (2004) We use to go every year to a gorgeous resort in Tucson. It was so fun and I always got so many pages done. The first year we had a whole 6 foot table each to ourselves. Each year our work space got smaller and smaller until this last year when we had to squeeze into a workspace of 18 inches by 3 feet. Didn't get nearly as much done that time, but we had fun anyways. It was a 50's theme and the group of friends I went with ordered custom pink bowling shirts with Chatty Scrapper Chicks on the back and our names embroidered on the front....really cute! (in the picture the s is cut off) That was the last year they held these in Tucson. The reason I bring this up is because I really miss going to my yearly weekend crop. I was thinking that when my finances are back on the upswing that I'm going to organize a SMALL crop with maybe a dozen girls...probably up in Payson. I will let you all know when I get my plans firmed up, so that if any of you local girls are interested, we could have a fun scrapbooking weekend together in the Mountains.
Susie Q and Andi are the ones organzing the monthly care package mailings to Chad, so if any of you would like to sign up for a month, you can let one of them know on their blogs. I would really love to see a picture on your blog on the month that you send to him. I talked to him about it and he was so excited! He really isn't too picky and would be thrilled with whatever you came up with to put in his boxes. Thank you so much for your huge hearts! I know some of you are sending him cards and writing him letters. They will mean the world to him and just so you know, he never throws them away because he likes to read his mail over and over. You girls are the best...seriously! :o)
