Scrapbook Village. Oh my stars...these ladies were so much fun. Bonnie, the owner of this fun store really knows how to create a crazy kind of fun event. I had the pleasure of joining them for their fall retreat...and I am still laughing!
I had the best group of ladies attend my class on creating your own stamps. They had already had a full day of cropping and shopping...and I am not sure that using some of the E6000 glue didn't put them over the top! (if you haven't ever used this wonderful product -- it will hold just about ANYTHING on a page -- but it also has a very strong smell that can make you a little giddy FAST!).
We were all giggling pretty soon after the class started. I told them -- you are going to leave my class "happy" one way or the other! *ha*
I love the community that happens with scrapbooking. You can't find that community at the "big chain stores" -- the friendships are formed around the tables at your local scrapbook store...and extend beyond the hobby to our everyday lives. I think that is terrific and I am so grateful for my friends that I have made through scrapbooking...they have changed my life and make it full of fun and laughter.
