Hosting a Scrapbooking Crop

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I’m pleased as punch to share a new website called Swaps, Crops and Shops. Misty and Tracey, the co-owners of the site asked little ol’ me to write a guest blog post for their Scraps &  Snacks feature, and share some ideas about connecting with other scrapbookers. What better way than a crop?

So let’s get this party started….

Men hunt and women gather, as the saying goes. Nowadays, modern women don't need to wander the forests for grain and berries, but we do love to gather together socially. When you can get together with other women and accomplish something, well, that's even better. Generations ago (and even today), the quilting bee brought women together to sew and socialize.

If you are a scrapbooker, you may be looking for a way to connect with others who share similar interests. Hosting your own crop can offer you fellowship with other scrapbookers, and it's much more fun than working on your pages alone.  You may be looking to invite a few friends over, or host a much larger event with dozens of attendees. Read on for more tips and ideas to help you plan a successful crop, whatever the size!
