I am so excited because there is already another NJ Crop Weekend coming up in February! That’s when I get together with a bunch of creative and interesting people, and we head out to the beautiful Dolce Hotel & Convention Center in Basking Ridge, NJ to work on our favorite paper crafts. Everyone gets a large, dedicated work space to spread out and do their projects. Here are some pictures of the latest Fall Crop Weekend!
Folks had lots of room to get their stuff done. Some people do scrapbooking, others make greeting cards… and some make use of the dedicated time, with none of the usual interruptions that we have at home, to do really unique things! Check out this picture of my friend, Pat and look at the big tote bag she is holding in her lap.
Do you know all those papers and treasures that the kids bring home from school? Well, Pat has been saving them in a bunch of bags, boxes & totes. She brought EVERYTHING to the crop weekend, and happily sat there going through it all. Some stuff was not very special, or was a duplicate, but she took all the stuff she wanted to save and put it into a Stampin’ Up! album for each of her children. The pocket style of the album allowed her to tuck the various papers into the top of each page, and the kids can pull them out if they want to see them up close! In one day, she reduced the stuff in a bunch of those totes into a nice thick album for each kid. Woo Hoo for organization!
[Hint: do you see the scrapbook pages about San Antonio that are in progress in the foreground? I’ll share how they came out in an upcoming post!]
Now that you see what the NJ Crop Weekends look like in the crop room, I hope you will consider joining us for the Winter 2012 Crop Weekend on February 24-26, 2012. Click here for more info, or contact me at carol@carolGpapercrafts.com!
