Hi everyone oh my goodness only 29 days to go. Very Happy Very Happy and I am getting soooo excited. It is going to be so nice to see everyone again and to meet more wonderful ladies. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Scrapfest is always so much fun and is so nice to get away with my best friend Dawn and to just do whatever we want and to eat whatever we want and of course to go shopping and not have to sneak our purchases into the house because by the time we come home it's all packed up Laughing Laughing does anyone else do this( sneaking in purchases). Just kidding myself though because I started out with storing my purchases in one area and now have taken over much more space so it's quite obvious that shopping has been going on Shocked Shocked Shocked oh well all is good. Cheap therapy that's my excuse! Well get those feet tapping and let's all dance as its not long now till we're all together again and everyone knows what that means Its Party Time !!!!! See everyone soon Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

25 days ladies, 25!!!!
Crazy that Scrapfest is getting so close and Mother Nature just can't make up her mind what type of weather we really should be having. Let's hope by Scrapfest she has made up her mind and will bless us with slightly warmer days. Smile
Anyway, happy feet at tapping away, helping to keep me warm on this chilly day.

So I'm almost done with my "new" craft room. I'm just doing the finishing touches and adding one little shelf yet. In trying to free up some space I was going through some old boxes in my closet. There I happened to find a box from my childhood. What a treasure I found, my very first scrapbook from when I was 7. Do you remember the retro scrapbooks made out of foolscap (it looked like the recycled kind of paper we have these days), and they had a dog and girl or a scenery picture on the cover? Well, this one was a Christmas gift from my grandparents. With eleven children and many grandchildren, gifts were not extravagant and this one was from the heart. It was signed on the inside cover, which in itself, pulled at my heartstrings. In there I wrote stories and drew pictures and all in all just had fun. One story I wrote was about my dad and how he would come home from work and ask "how his big girl was". I wrote about how he would tuck me in at night and the "chatter" we did. Oh my, did the sentimental tears flow. It brought me right back to 1970 and into the loving arms of my parents. In there were math questions that my mom wrote and checked for me and of course included wonderful sentiments that only a mom could write. I loved to write mystery stories and there are a few there as well, all taking place in the neighbourhood with family, friends, neighbours and of course some ghosts. Now, let me tell you about my very first marker. It was green and it seemed to be all I wrote with in my scrapbook! LOL! I remember quite well that it was a freebee from Kellogg's cereal, that Dad and I had saved the boxed tops and sent away for. It was a very enjoyable marker!!

I hope some day that the scrapbooks I make for my family, will bring fond memories for them just as this old scrapbook of mine, brought back cherished memories to my heart. I wish this for all of you as well. The bonus is that we get to craft with friends new and old.

Here goes my sentimental happy dance for tonight, for there are only 15 more days to go until Scrapfest.

April what a wonderful story, I loved reading every word. You have a true treasure in your childhood scrapbook. I too remember those kellogg's markers Very Happy Very Happy Who would have thought that years ago the memories thoses little stories and drawing would create. I guess it is a testiment to the very importance of the scrapbooks we make today, for our families and friends tomorrow. it's funny just last week I was listening to my son and nephew (mid 20's) looking at a scrapbook and reading the journaling about my parents. "wow I didn't know this and that . We'll have to ask Granma and Granpa about that. They've got stories". Yep they do. Shocked I guess what I'm saying is ..keep scrappin' people we have a story to tell.
keep dancin' too Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Thank you for those sweet words Dawn! I know! It is so precious when our family, especially our children ask about pictures and journaling from our scrapbooks. If we stop to think about it, it is really quite amazing.

10 years of Scrapfest is special. 10 years of friendships, crafting and shopping! This is often the place where our cherished scrapbooks start. Card making has also grown so much in 10 years. How wonderful to receive a hand crafted card in the mail for any reason and many times, for no reason at all. Scrapfest is full of ideas, make and takes and well, so much fun! And did I mention SHOPPING!!! Oh yeah!!

13 more days to go!! Enjoy your Saturday! Oh, how sweet it is! Scrapfest in less than 2 weeks
!!!

Good morning!! Happy Thursday!!

Can you believe it! Only 7 more days until the big weekend!!

Ann, how is your packing coming?

I've been playing in my "new" scraproom and boy is it so much better
for me to be organized. I can see what supplies are on my list for Scrapfest and I'm so much better able to prepare for the crop. That means I won't have to take the kitchen sink with me this time!! LOL!!

I feel so excited and I know only one cure for that!! You know it!! Put your feet together and join me in the happy dance

Not good April Crying or Very sad
Would love to see how you organized your craft space! I am so wrapped up in a new love, art journalling, I have been doing that and not packing yet. Very Happy
This weekend though ... husband and son are off to a hockey year-end fun tournament ... lots of me time to try to get organized.
A week tomorrow ... I keep panicing thinking it's tomorrow...am I just over anxious?
