Creating Outside the Book Crop

Book Club always has the best crops and this past weekend was certainly no exception.

We gather together every couple of months to craft, eat, giggle and laugh, shop and generally have a blast together.

Here’s Glenna smiling pretty and showing us this adorable Make and Take.  It’s a heart ornament made from paper. 



Some of the ladies watching the process.  Thank you Alma for giving me a cute smile.



Kristal is embellishing her Smash Book.



Peggy creating painted tape.  Cool idea! 



Annie signing her ATC’s for a swap that she hosted on the Strathmore website.  Some of us took a Traci Bautista doodling class and then did an ATC swap with what we learned.



Wendy making a wall hanging/photo album crafted with paper.



Glenna finishing a beautiful mini album.



Sherry making a background page for her photo album.  Caught ya smiling Sherry!



Deb is working on her vintage record album/photo album.  This is just one of the great pages.




Trish making a gorgeous St. Patty’s day banner.








Judy says she getting a lot done.  No work…just play today.



Lola putting together a masterpiece photo album.



Lola and Jean having fun together.



We love that Cynthia brings her whole craft room.  If Cynthia doesn’t have it, Kristal will!  Or, Cynthia will take a coupon and go and get it.  I know Cyn, you just need a few things!



Gaye is working on something fabulous.  From some eavesdropping, I gather that they are invitations for a wedding!  Fun!



Kat’s taking some time for a cup of coffee.  Thanks Gaye for making the Starbucks run.

Annie found out that hosting an ATC Swap can be grueling, but also rewarding.  Yey!  They are done and ready to go in the mail.  (No permission, no pics of the ATC’s)
