Help me welcome... S & S Cropping for a Cause!!

Shelly and Stacy have been holding crops once or twice a year in the area.  A few blogs ago I mentioned going to a great crop at Mater Dei... a fundraiser for the 8th great class if I recall.  At that time these two ladies mentioned holding more regular crops, and I have been anxiously awaiting the news.

Well, here it is! 

They have officially started a business to raise money for causes that they hold dear to their hearts.  They have scheduled their first two crops and shared the dates with us.

February 18th- A benefit for March of Dimes- Team Carter.
This crop will take place at Town & Country Christian Church (on SW 29th St, next to Westlake)
April 14th- A benefit for the Cancer Walk  (unsure if this is Relay for Life, or which walk, but who cares?  Never met a Cancer Walk that wasn't a great cause!!
Their plan is to have this crop at the Assumption Church, but more details will follow.

If you are not on Shelly and Stacy's mailing list, be sure to email one of them as follows: for Shelly for Stacy

Until then... Happy Cropping... and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I'm back... with more crops to tell you about!!

Hi there.
Seems like I have been off of here forever.
I got sick before Thanksgiving and have been trying to keep up with life and stay healthy since then.
Thought I better get back on here and post so that you didn't think I gave up blogging already.

Wanted to share a few more crop dates with you!!

First of all, I just found out today that the Shawnee Heights Band Boosters are holding a crop on February 11th from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Shawnee Heights High School.  They did this crop last year and it was GREAT!!  Easy access, great lighting, great food/snacks at minimal expense, and all for a good cause.  They will also have Cricut classes and demos for free.  I don't know many more details at this point, but will keep you posted.  I know I am putting this one on MY calendar!!!

Also, Tammy Livingston put out a crop schedule earlier this week.  Not a lot of details, but LOTS of dates to mark.  Her Friday night ones are typically held at the Denison State Bank in Meriden.  I am sure the other ones are at various locations, but will keep you posted when I know more.  For now, here are the dates she provided.
  • Friday, January 6th
  • Saturday, January 21st
  • Friday, Febuary 3rd
  • Saturday, February 11th
  • Friday thru Sunday, February 17-19
  • Friday, March 2nd
  • Friday & Saturday, March 9-10
  • Saturday, April 14
I have been reorganizing and decluttering my scrapbook room, and some friends reaped the benefits of that!!  This weekend I am getting together with a small group of scrapbook friends on Saturday.  That will probably be it for me until after the holidays!!

If any of you venture up toward Springfield, you HAVE to check out Scrapbook Generations!!  It is an AWESOME scrapbook store, over 5,000 square feet, very nicely laid out and organized, with tons of great stuff!!  I got the opportunity to check it out when I went to see my nieces in November.  I will be stopping there on all of my future trips that direction.

Hope to have a few goodies to share with you all later in the weekend.  I have a few Christmas projects to get finished up.  For those of you that I don't have contact with until after January 1st, I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 
Remember... Jesus is the Reason for the Season.

God Bless you and your families!!
Love, Bobbi
