It's Sunday night, and I'm wishing it was Friday so I could add more time to the weekend. LOL
Yesterday I hosted a crop (for those of you that don't scrapbook, a "crop" is getting together with friends to scrapbook) at my house. It was just going to be a few Moms from Tucker's school that I've gotten to know this year. I also invited friends that I used to work with at the scrapbook store, and some former customers of that store. Friday night it was going to be 9 to 10 people. Sounded like fun! By Saturday morning it was up to 14 people, still sounded like fun. By the time everyone arrived, and we had all the seating figured out it was 22 people!!! Oh but we had such a great time. It was so fun seeing people I hadn't seen in awhile, and then even finding out 3 people knew each other from other places and hadn't seen each other in a long time either. In all the madness my friend Jess scooted off to borrow more tables and chairs from her dad so we could all have a place to sit. A neighbor brought over 2 outdoor heaters, and canopies so we were even warm well into the evening (or should I say morning ha ha) and my friend Joe went home and brought back a supply of adhesive for everyone to try that had never heard of Zip Dry. (Seriously Joe, 30 bottles of zip dry on hand? LOL)
One of the things I love this hobby so much is that it brings people together. Not everyone knew each other when they arrived, but by the end of the night it seemed like a group of old friends that had known each other for years. We're planning on getting together again soon, and I can't wait!!

Sorry I missed your party. Connor and Abby both won their games so I guess it was worth it. I'm not missing next time though.
