Uh, how could I not blog about THIS!?

I just realized that I did not blog about the Crops2Remember crop I hosted with fellow scrappers Nan and Naomi! Gee, what an oversight! I am excited to say that it was a complete success and everyone appeared to have a great time! I did not get as much cropped as I would have liked, but I did manage to organize my PLETHORA of ribbon and I enjoyed two half-hour massages (thanks Melissa - you'll be there next time, right?!). We are hosting another C2R crop in August, in fact, and will grow from 24 croppers to 32! Want to see more pictures? Take a look at the web site:!

I got my scissors!

After a much long-awaited, um, wait, Fiskateer #743 finally got her official scissors! Apparently, there was a small group of us that got skipped over in the initial countdown, er, countup, for the scissors, so some of the quadruple-digit Fiskateers got theirs before the rest of us triple-digit gals. You might be wondering what's so special about these scissors ... well, they are Fiskar's gift to their crafter fan club and are engraved, with each Fiskateer's number. Mine say "Fiskateer #743." I now have them to show off, just in time for CKU!


She not only sent ME a bunch of scrappy stuff, she sent birthday gifts to each of the boys! And they love their cars and train! If you happen to read this, thanks SS! Can't wait to meet you next month!

MAMBI sale!

OK, seriously, anyone who was anyone in the South Orange County scrap world was at the MAMBI sale last weekend ... National Scrapbook Day weekend! After chatting about it with MAMBI owner Stephanie Rahmatulla the weekend before at Crops2Remember ( I knew I had to go and check out the great deals - or were they steals?! I ran in to fellow C2R croppers Krystal Tran (who took the picture of me) and Christal Parker (who I took the picture of!), as well as long time crop buddy Cheryl Bartezko .. and I was only there for about 45 minutes! The gal who checked me out was well-prepared for the crowd of ladies winding their way through the boxes of scrap stuff ... she had worked for Mrs. Grossman's stickers for several years and had been through plenty of warehouse sales full of crazy croppers! The staff did seem well prepared and the check out was fast and easy. If they had only had a few more carts for everyone to roll their overfilled boxes around on!

So, who else went? I know there were a lot of us! Hope it was a success, Steph!
