I signed up for a day crop where i don't know a soul. Part of me is really excited because i will talk less and get more done. I am open to meeting new scrap buddies, naturally. Any feedback?

But you will meet new people and have something in common

Enjoy

Take a bag of candy and a bowl. You can put it next to your space and it will bring people over to say hello to you and open up chit chat!

Walk around during the day and see what others are making. Make friendly comments and you are bound to get some conversations going.

I never thought of taking a bowl of candy and putting it out. Great idea!

I agree with Jen too - walk around a see what everyone else is working on. I find that people are very happy to show off what they have done. And you can get some great ideas too!

Have fun at your crop!

So funny, I too am going to a crop where I know no one! Mine is an entire weekend, so I sure hope my tablemate is someone nice! Sadly, I have no scrapping friends, although I keep trying to get people to do it with me. Hoping to meet some great people.

Thanks for all of your great ideas. It is good for me to get "out of my comfort zone", and do something different. I will let you know how it went. (November 9). Good luck to you on your weekend crop! It will be fine!

sometimes you need a conversation starter to break the ice...
tv is always a good one, something like..."Did you catch the Amazing Race last night? I find that program so interesting because I love to travel."

I always ask questions about what they are scrapping - the people in the pictures. That always gets conversations started.

Where was this taken - I would love to go there or have been there. Is this your grandson - how old is he? People love to talk about their pictures!
