Whew!!!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...........................this is {ME} exhaling!!!! (for only a brief second!)
What a weekend!!! WHAT A FUN WEEKEND!!! We had a GREAT group of ladies cropping this weekend!!! More than half of them I didn't really "know" before this weekend!! I have to say - that's probably the most surprising thing about this whole "scrapbooking "thing" " - the relationships that you build - just from having a HOBBY in common!! It's awesome!!! We had a lot of fun and I hope that everyone will be back in soon!!!

This is a group photo - now, not EVERYONE was able to be in the picture!! Christie (welch) had to leave early - Sandee and Janine weren't back yet - so I know this photo isn't complete - but it's a good one at that! (of course - FLOSSY made the photo!) (as I'm looking at this photo - WHERE IS KELLY!?!) Huscher - did you back up when I put the camera in front of my face!??!) HUSCHER?!?!?!



ANY crop with Jennifer and Keri is GUARANTEED to be a BLAST!! I swear - I seriously laugh SO hard when they're together!!! Here is just a preview of what I'm talking about!!! (poor KIM!! ha!! Kim had SO much fun!!! I'm sure she's glad that she got to meet Jennifer!)




I haven't really had a chance to "re-coop" - feel kinda like I just completed Crop*A*Ganza!!! Cleaned the store last night and today - so it should be nice and FRESHLY cleaned for a little while - YES that means that SOME things have "moved"!! But, trust me - it's looking GOOD!! If you can't find something when you're in - just ask us!! We will SO find it for you!!!



Okay - lets get to the REAL reason why you're all reading this tonight - REGISTRATION opens TOMORROW morning FOR crop*a*ganza!!! ARE you REadY?!?!



We ARE!! We have NO idea what to expect - we've not done it like this before - usually we just open up registration AT the previous Crop*A*Ganza event - but this time - we decided to "re-evaluate" everything and tweek some things. Thus the reason for the price increase.



First let me say - Crop*A*Ganza DID NOT increase $100.00 in price!!! That is a "rumor" that has been going around.......................YES, Crop*A*Ganza DID increase by $10.00 for croppers. And, we feel that it is STILL a fair price - while affordable as well. When we took this over from Theresa Hixon and Treasure Keepers, we tried to keep everything (for the most part) the same as she had!! But, it's just not possible to continue at the "rate" at which we were going!!! We want to continue to have these events for ALL of US - both YOU and US!! We feel that the Wichita area has DESPERATELY needed something of this kind for some time now, and we are so excited that we are able to provide this for you!!! BUT, we are also running a business.......and unfortunately - in order to remain "in business" we have to make a profit!! (or at least thats what our accountant tells us!!! ha ha!)......so, we had to increase the price. That's the explanation!! Plain and simple - we're not trying to "rob" anyone - or "rip" anyone off!!! We really are wanting to just bring you a GREAT crop event - FUN, and GREAT!!!! (i'm getting off my shoebox now!)



So, if you're ready to register - we are READY for you!!!!!!

PLEASE print off the registration form....(you can get it via our website or on the upper right hand side of this blog - click on the link and print it off)!

Call with any questions you may have!!! 316-733-0029


We have the store "WOMAN-ED" and everything is a "GO" for tomorrow morning!! We will begin taking phone calls and registrations IN the store at 9:00AM sharp!!! First come, first serve!! We will answer the phones as the calls come in - if you call and we don't answer - we're on the other line with a customer and will answer it as soon as we can!!! Be patient!! We really DO want EVERYONE to come!!!!


Okay - gotta go to bed now - I'm EXHAUSTED!!! I'll post your weekly challenge tomorrow PROMISE!! (I will KIM!! promise!) :)
