Soooooo....who has big plans for National Scrapbook Day this weekend???
I'm not gonna lie....I'm a little nervous. My sister somehow got us roped into TEACHING a couple of classes each at a scrapbook store a couple of hours away. Okay:
1. Neither one of us have ever taught scrapbooking classes before.
2. Neither one of us has even BEEN to a scrapbooking class before!
3. Neither one of us has ever been to an overnight crop, much less a 2-night, 3-day crop.
Oh well, it'll be fun right? Right???
I really don't know what to expect, but I'm kinda just trying not to think about it. I'm an over-analyzer...big-time....and if I start with the over-analyzing right now, I'll be a hot mess by this weekend. So...I'm just gonna let go of any ideas or expectations and just go with it. (sure, I say that now, but you watch...I'll be up all night the night before we leave, trying to write cue cards and outlines for the classes I'm teaching! ha!)
So this brings me to a whole other set of questions/advice needed:
How do YOU pack for a big weekend crop?
Do you make up little page kits?
Do you just throw everything into your crop tote and go?
Do you carefully select the things you will take/will leave at home?
What about alphas....how do you know which ones/colors to take?
Do you buy a lot while you are there, or do you try to stick only to what you brought with you?
Is it weird feeling kinda like an "outsider" and newbie in the group of friends who always crop together?
Do you get much done at crops, or do you tend to socialize more than scrap?
How many completed pages/projects on average do you walk away with after a big crop?
What fun things have class teachers done in the past to make the class more interesting?
Now, see....here I was saying I wasn't going to worry about it, and those questions just came flying out. Sorry! I would love to hear your thoughts, though. :)
Whatever your plans are this weekend, I hope you have a very Happy NSD and an especially Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies out there!!
