December Newsletter 2011
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

December 10th- Welcome to our 11th Annual December Holiday Crop. The theme this year is FAVORITE THINGS! We will have our very loved “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree with our handmade tree skirt, wreath, ornaments, our traditional dinner, prizes, and most of all holiday crop time with our Sunshine sisters.

Our “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree has ornaments representing our Sunshine Scrappers family. Some ornaments are store bought and some are handmade. Feel free to make an ornament for our Christmas tree and bring it in December. It’s a Sunshine Scrappers annual tradition.
*The doors open at noon no earlier. The SS Village would like the room to be festive when you all arrive-it’s Christmas after all *Closing at 11:00p.

**December Crop Fee- as with every December crop your crop fee ($6) will be donated to the church as a thank you for allowing us to crop each month. If you would like to donate more then please do. St. Alban’s would make sure it was used in a positive way. We enjoy giving back to our community. December 2010 we donated $300.00 and Father Ralph was so thankful. *The big crop room cost $185 to rent-they are only charging us $75.00-thank you St. Alban’s!!

****Please read all...we have a lot of things planned-don’t miss out on how YOU can win a prize.

THE FUN!!!
Please dress festive, (wear your favorite Sunshine Scrapper logo shirt), santa hat, socks, etc. Show your Christmas/Holiday spirit the Sunshine Scrappers way-there will be a PRIZE for MOST spirited!!!

Best Decorated Brown large paper bag PRIZE-see below Gift Exchange...

We’ll also take a group photo after dinner. So look cute… LOL It’s another Sunshine Scrapper tradition!

***It’s our biggest prize giveaway ever! $100.00 (10 yrs. + another 0= 100) in honor of our 10 years together. It’s a SUPER,BIG PRIZE! It’s special and you’ll have to come to the crop to see if YOU win. It maybe YOU!!! You MUST be present to win. We will pull the name before or after dinner. So how do I enter?
You might have earned a ticket (throughout the year) to be placed in a bucket to be pulled for a prize. Your name will automatically be added if you: 1) came to 10 or more SS Crops, 2) if you are a SS vet (5 or more yrs. with SS-we are still in our 10th yr.), 3) if you donated an item to SS-like pot holders, 4) if you stayed to help clean over and above, 5) if you signed up for the Dec. crop early AND added what you are bringing for our dinner, 6) IF YOU WEAR YOUR SS SHIRT TO THE CROP.... if you are wearing a SS shirt at the crop make sure you see me (Stacey) so I add your name/ticket to the bucket. Thank YOU for your support each month. :-)

Gift Exchange (Favorite Things)....
THIS OF COURSE IS OPTIONAL!!

Gift Exchange RULES: (exchange will take place after dinner) *A few CHANGES to make it go a bit faster*
WHAT: Please place your scrapbooking/stamping/cra fting gift under $15.00 in a BROWN PAPER GROCERY BAG.
Please add your name (FROM: xxxx) **in the bag** so the receiver knows who the gift came from. Remember the theme is "FAVORITE THINGS"-maybe your gift can be one of YOUR favorite things THEN tell us "why" when you sign FROM: xxx. We thought it would be fun to see WHO the item(s) are from, and hear WHY its your “FAVORITE THING”.
Decorate the “brown large grocery paper bag”. Their will be a PRIZE for best wrapped/decorated paper bag. When you arrive at the crop please place your gift under the Christmas Tree. See photos of past bags under PHOTOS-left of the screen for ideas.
WHEN & HOW: After dinner we will gather our chairs to sit around the Christmas Tree for the exchange. We will go by “PODS”. Each pod will be assigned a random #-and your table will be marked with your # so remember what pod # is yours. I will pull a pod # out of a basket. When we call your pod number each person in your pod will pick a gift from under the Christmas tree. Then sit in one of the 8 chairs in front of the Christmas tree (8 people per pod).
TADA! You will open your gift for all to see and you can read your “WHY” it was FROM: XXX as their “favorite thing”. After everyone has opened their gift you can then exchange your gift with someone in the room. Otherwise, we will be exchanging for hours.
Don’t forget to use those coupons, gift cards and cash work just as well.



Janet’s Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange:
We have an annual Christmas cookie exchange every year. It isn't
mandatory for you to participate but it's always fun for those who do.

Here are the guidelines:

1. Sign up under "Database". Include your name and what kind of cookie
you are making. The cut off date to sign up is December 5th.

2. Make one dozen cookies per person signed up. So if there are 15
people signed up, make 15 dozen cookies. Include yourself in the
count. It makes it sooooo much easier to redistribute the cookies.

3. Place each dozen cookies in either a zip lock bag or a cello bag
you can get at Mikes or Joann’s (they are in the cake decorating
section).

4. Attach the recipe to each bag and don't forget to include your name.

5. Bring them to the crop in a large container so you will have
something to carry all your goodies home in.

6. Please, only home baked cookies.

We will have a table reserved for the cookie exchange. You will will be entered in a special drawing for participating. Happy baking!

Janet

This is our ONLY PRE-PAID event: We need this month’s crop pre-paid to know how much to order for dinner on Saturday night. It is $15.00 for both days. You may pay me by sending me your $15.00 CASH to my house. Please email me for my home address staceylbg@cfl.rr.com

**The last day to pay for the April Crop is Monday April 2nd.

**NO money ($15.00) will be taken at the APRIL Crop.

ATTENDANCE: If you can only attend 1 of the 2 days the fee is STILL $15.00.
NO REFUNDS!
Remember your money goes to St. Alban’s or back to YOU.
*You may find yourself a replacement (if you find you cannot attend) and just let me know who is taking your spot.

PODS: You can sit 8 to a pod in Grundorf Hall (BIG ROOM) vs. 6 to a pod in Kimsey Hall (regular room)!!

OVERNIGHT Place to Stay?:
~Need a place to stay if you are traveling a distance for the April
Crop? Here's the perfect place and it's cheaper than a tank of gas. It's safe,
clean and quiet.

We have our annual retreat at Canterbury Retreat and Conference Center (1601
Alafaya Trail (SR 434) Oviedo, FL 32765...which is located in Oviedo not far
from St. Alban's. We've been here for 7 years. They offer overnight stays
(called personal retreats) that are reasonable. To see pictures of the rooms go
to PHOTOS and click on Canterbury Retreat.

The info/brochure I have says $55.00 per night. Double occupancy-two beds-one twin and
one queen. Private FULL bath and a/c unit. Includes linens and towels. Meals are
extra. I picked this up at our last retreat (January 2012).

Call and ask for Sue. Let her know you are a Sunshine Scrapper and you'd like a
night or 2 and if she has the space she will reserve you a room. 407.365.5571...

Scrapbook Expo:

http://www.scrapbookexpo.com/OR-12/Pre-Registratio n.asp
Registration Starts March 30th: If you are only shopping you do not need to register.
Many of us Sunshine Scrapper Sisters are registering to crop on Friday (5/18) AND OR Saturday (5/19). Of course shopping as well. Some are making it a weekend and staying at the Gaylord.

Don’t forget to: 1) Bring your SS Tervis tumbler or mug, 2) your SS purple grocery bag, 3) your SS neck wallet to keep your money in for shopping, 4) and most of all WEAR YOUR SS SHIRT! I’d love to see SS shirts all over the shopping area as well as the crop room. We can get us all together and take a group photo.
We will have SS “business cards” on the table for you to grab at the April and May crop to bring along in case someone wants our SS link-they can find us online. Hand them a card-maybe keep them in your neck wallet. We MUST enable them...LOL
If you don’t have a purple SS neck wallet Walmart carries black ones in the office supply section of the store. They are under $5.00 ($3.88-I *think) and very handy.

I suggest a scrapping backpack for shopping with a plastic hard folder type thing inside to keep 12x12 cs and paper from getting bent. This way you are also hands free to touch, hold and pay.
If you are attending please let us know by “signing up” under DATABASE-thank you.

Garage Sale items:
THIS MONTH ONLY place your garage sale items by the entrance wall (where we place the christmas tree each year). We don’t have enough tables for garage sale set up-so if you want to sell your garage sale items please bring your own table..
Feel free to bring those scrapping/crafts items you no longer need to each monthly crop. Please label each item with a price and your name and set them in the garage sale area of the room. This is very successful.

Sunshine Scrapper Shirt:
Sarah Rigby is the go to person for items embroidered with the SS logo. Her info is listed under DATABASE: “SS Village” Bring your $6.00 in an envelope with your name, email address or phone # and the item(s) Shirts, totes, jacket, sweatshirt, etc. to the next crop. See FILES for the logo. She will return them at the following crop. Just ask for Sarah.

June Newsletter 2012

June 9th: 10:00am-10:00pm Happy Summer ladies! Yes, it’s summer time again. The kids are out of school and vacations are ongoing. So traditionally we don’t plan anything big during these months. It’s just enough for all of us to come and get away for a day. :-) So look for raffles come August and plans start gearing up for December’s crop once the kids are back in school. Also, NSBR: please feel free to post on the Message Board free and or good deals for the summer with the kids. Enable us...please and thanks. :-)
