Cedar Rapids

Iowa City, Council Bluffs, and Hiawatha

This time, 5 1/2 years.

Stampin' and Scrappin' Pad (excellent, in Marion), Stampirations (Cedar Rapids), Sunshine and Chameleon (Waterloo or Cedar Falls, pretty new, some great stuff including Bazill and National Cardstock)

Michaels, Walmart, Target

I'm not homesick for Arizona anymore! And if I moved I would miss my garden, most of it transplanted from my Grandma's yard. The only other place I'd kinda like to like would be San Diego, so I could be close to my sister's family.

Okay, sorry way late on this one but I just found this website! How cool to find others from Iowa. It can seem a tad isolated out here in the boonies!

By the way I'm only a part time Cy fan (my husband has tried to convert me), football season in Hawkey season!

Where do you live? Earlham (west of WDM)

Have you lived in any other Iowa towns/cities? yes, Columbus Junction (SE IA) and Cedar Fall (UNI)

How long have you lived here? in IA almost all my life, in Earlham 4 years

What LSS's do you like? New here, what's a "LLS"?

Where else do you buy sb stuff? Archiver's, Michaels

If you had to chose another state to live in, which would it be? Well, if I choose today I would say way up in Northern MN on one of the lakes, but then again I would be a far way a way from my favorite scrapbook stores!

BTW - Erin are those your little ones? I love the pic and they are all adorable!

If any of you IA scrappers wants a flyer for the Crop for the Cure on September 17, 2005 in WDM, please pm me your address and I'll get one right out to you.

So far, we have the following vendors signed up:
SU, CTMH, CM, Picture Perfect, TLC, Longberger and Cathy Z from Simple scrapbooks said she is sending a really cool goodie bag with tons of simple scrapbooks products. TONS of items are coming in for the garage sale and this looks like it's going to be a GREAT day of fun.

We'll also be playing scrapbingo for prizes throughout the day. Each participant will receive a goodie bag and have their name put in for the door prizes drawings.

Cost is $25 for a 12 hour crop (includes food) or $35 if you register after 7/31.

I'd be happy to send you all the details.
Thanks!!
Debbie

Hey amanda!!! LSS means Local Scrapbook Store.

Is anyone planning to go to this? www dot iowascrapbookextravaganza dot com ?

I know Deb is, but wondered about the reset of you. I think I am going to sign up for some classes and get a shopping pass. We hopefully will be in the process of moving and I cant commit to a whole weekend right now. It would be great to take classes with you guys!

Hi! I'm Sara and I live in Forest City. Our LSS in town is closing in a few weeks, but there is another one in Lake Mills - Treasure It - which I just adore, she just opened this fall! I'm new to the area and I'm looking for scrapping buddies! I've lived in lots of places over the years - grew up in Riceville, went to Luther College in Decorah, have lived in Cedar Falls a couple of times and I spent a summer in Des Moines as far as other Iowa towns go. We have also spent about 5 years living on the east coast. I just discovered scrapbooking over the last year or so and mainly buy my stuff from the LSS's as they are closer than Mason City and more helpful.

Hi, I'm Sheri. I live in North Liberty (just north of Iowa City/Coralville) and have lived here for 4 years. I grew up in Waterloo and lived in Georgia for 2 years while my husband was in the military before returning to Waterloo.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 11 1/2 years and we have two great kids, Hayleigh (10 years) and Nate (7 years).

My favorite LSS is Memories on Fifth in Coralville. But my goal this year is to stay out of the stores and use from the enormous collection gathering in my house.

I like living here in Iowa, but if I am forced to pick a state other than that, I would have to say anywhere that is warm.

Hey everyone-
Just wanted to let you know that registration is open for the Crop for the Cure event in West Des Moines, IA. We sold out last year in July for the September event and quite a few from sb.com made it there!!

Here's all the info if you are interested:
www.debbie.com/cropforthecure

It's a great event and for a great, great cause. Please help us raise money to find a CURE for breast cancer. In the past two years, we have raised over $20,000 for Komen by doing this crop!!

Hi, I hope ya'll don't mind my jumping in on your thread to make a request. My dd and I are doing a project with postcards and I have been asking anyone who would be willing to mail my dd a postcard. There is more personal info if you use the link in my signature. I find that people at this site are so nice. Please pm if you are interested. Thanks so much either way and again, sorry to "butt" in on your thread.

Hello, I'm new here. Do you still have space at the crop for a cure?




Sorry we sold out at the end of June and now have 24 on the waiting list.

I can add you to the waiting list if you want but it would be last minute - last year on Thursday/Friday, about 15 people said they couldn't come. Just hoping people tell me earlier this year!!

Welcome to the thread!!
Deb

Hi Jesse! I'm sorry it's been so long since I checked the thread. Where is Camanche? You mention the Mississippi. Is it by the Quad Cities? Do you head to either CR or QC often? If so, maybe we could meet up sometime & scrap?

Little late.... but just discovered the Iowa thread...

Where do you live? West Burlington

Have you lived in any other Iowa towns/cities? Burlington, Cedar Rapids

How long have you lived here? West Burlington? Uhmm... I've been back for about 6mo, lived in CR for 6mo, and have been back and forth between Burlington/West Burlington since I was born.

What LSS's do you like? Memory Bound in Ankeny is my favorite, followed by is it Heirlooms by Design in the Valley? and Creative Expressions in Cedar Rapids (FYI: located on the SW side in the Walmart vicinity... by Dollar Tree)

Where else do you buy sb stuff? JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, Walmart, Dollar Tree, Scrapbook.com and other web-based Scrap stores... I've only been to Archivers once and LOVED it!

If you had to chose another state to live in, which would it be? I love Iowa, but I hate the snow. I'd have to go someplace warmer! LoL!

Its nice to meet you all!

Oh... and I'm a Cyclones fan too! I desperately want to go to IA State!

Hey, I found fellow Iowans...finally!

Where do you live? Winterset, IA (Have you heard of the Bridges of Madison County? That is my hometown.)

Have you lived in any other Iowa towns/cities? Ames (only while I attended ISU)

How long have you lived here? All of my life

What LSS's doy you like? Archivers (Jordan Creek) and Heirlooms by Design (Valley Junction)

Where else do you buy sb stuff? Michael's and Hobby Lobby

If you had to chose another state to live in, which would it be? Maybe any state that the Rocky Mountains run through where I can live in the mountains with a beautiful scenery outside my scraproom window, no snow on the roads (only on the trees and grass), be cold (no horrible wind chills), and not be able to look out any of the windows in the house and be able to look in the neighbors window if their curtains/drapes are pulled open. Well, I can wish can't I? But for now I love Iowa and mostlikely never leave.

Hey!

I just joined this week.

I didn't copy the questions, but here's my recap:

I live in the country near State Center (Marshall county) and have been here a few months. I have lived in Nevada, DM and WDM, IC and Ames. I have lived outside the state for a 4 of my 37 yrs.

I love Archivers and Memory Bound and shop at HL and Michael's, too. Found some cute things at Pure Paper last week (Windsor Heights).

I would move to TX in a heartbeat if my family would go, too!

If there is any one in the central Iowa area that is interseted in a scrap night, PM me or check out my blog.

I know of an upcoming scrap night (usually every second Friday of the month) that is free of charge. It is a small gathering at a rural church that is open to the public.
