it depends on where in Michigan you'll be... I'm in Kalamazoo and there's second Saturday crops at one of the LSS that are 12 hours and pretty reasonably priced. There's also a place in Paw Paw that has crops as well as a meetup scrapping group that plans stuff for this side of the state.
Hey everyone from MI! Isn't this warm weather fabulous?! I'm not sure if it is okay to put this here but if it isn't I'm hope no one takes offense. I wanted to let ya'll know that I'm hostessing a Mommy and Me scrapbooking day on May 24th in Grand Blanc (that is close to Flint). If anyone is interested please PM me with your email addy and I'll send you a flier for it. I have a pre-registration date set for May 11th so we get our supplies here in time. Thanks and I hope you will join me
Hey everyone. I used to frequent here every once in a while, but have been gone with work and toddlers. Anyway, I'm from southeast detroit. 75/696 interchange area. I am looking for some stores, the ones that I use to go to closed, so I have been hitting Michaels and Joann's, but would like a scrappy store. Also, i am going to the Expo in May on Saturday! I am so excited!
Hello Michiganders!!! I have a few weeks left of school then back to scrappin...whoo hoooo!!!! Our only local scrapbook store just shut down..grrr. Oh well, at least I will always have Michaels and Hobby Lobby. Not much longer until the expo! My 8 year old daughter is really geeked too. See ya'll in a few weeks!!! Keep scrappin!!!
Hello..i just recently moved to Michigan. The area i'm in doesnt have a Hobby Lobby, we do have a Michaels..and love the Coupons , being on a tight budget thats the only way to shop for me. I use to scrap years ago, packed it up and just recently started to pull it back out. I am in NW Michigan...
Hello!!!! Its good to be almost back!!! I went to the expo and didnt have a good as a time as I did last year. People seemed rude this year...maybe its just me. Anyways....spent sooo much money!!! I am hoping that I can get back into my wedding album, really want to get that done.
Well, I'm glad that it sounds like I didn't miss that much at the Expo. I can't believe I missed it again this year. Just too much going on and my hours changed at work...stinks! Anyway, there's always next year right??
Oooh, then I have news for you! Do you know Piece of Mine in Grand Ledge? They now have a scrapbook section. They don't have as much as Pages in Time did, but they have some nice stuff. You should really check it out.
I just went to that store in Ovid for the first time 2 weeks ago. It's a really nice store. It's a 45 minute drive 1-way for me though.
What is Piece of Mine? Never heard of it. I have a good friend that lives in Grand Ledge. I am surprised she hasnt told me about it..then again she doesnt scrap either. Yeah...Ovid is okay. Kinda bummed they wont pay for an interpreter for deaf people to take their classes..seems like that would help their sales. Thanks for the tip on that store!!!
Piece of Mine is actually a pottery painting place in Grand Ledge. They are *just* getting started with having a scrap area in their store. Your friend probably hasn't even heard it yet. I know about it because I'm on the "in" with the scrap world around here.
Actually, I didn't end up getting to go to the crop because my son got sick with a cold/croup. I couldn't risk leaving him with a sitter and her get sick or him have trouble breathing and her freak out. I'm hoping to go to a crop in the beginning of July if I don't have this baby by then.
I sure hope you get to get more scrapping time in!
I have this layout...its been sitting on my desk for weeks..why? you ask...LOL...I keep cutting out the letters and just leaving them on my desk and then some of the letters disappear..so I have to do it again. I finally glued what letters I do have, but have to cut out more. TG for the cricut.
I would be interested!! Is there a fee? What times and what church?
Do you get over this way often? We have a weekly crop at a shop in Petoskey every Friday night-cost is $10 and includes dinner-use of all her supplies (2 cricuts, sewing machine, cuttlebug, oodles of stamps..etc..) The host is a great lady named Bonnie.
There is also a fundraiser crop that I can let you know about in Charlevoix if you are interested.
I'm in Traverse City - haven't done any crops for a few years. I do cards right now, am trying to get the momentum and ambition to start another scrapbook - but first I need to get the pics together. Where in Petoskey is this crop and is it every Friday? I was up there last weekend and found some cool stuff at Ben Franklins - is that right? Just down from the Mitchell St. Pub? My sister-in-law lives up there and we go up quite frequently for the weekend. Might have to drop in!
Hi bets!! Ben Franklin (Scrapper's Attic) has a Friday night crop-but they will only hold it if 6 people are signed up by Wed. So that doesn't happen very often.
THe store we frequent on Friday nights is called Create a Card..Do you know where 7-11 is on the corner of Mitchell and Emmet St? It is up that road across from The Gold Mine Resale Shop. The owner is just amazing and the night is so much fun. If you are a card maker-you will love her store! She has tons of cards everywhere and 100s of stamps! I keep telling her I am coming in to just spend a day making cards.
Hope you make it up soon! Would love to meet there!!
Hello everyone- I'm from the U.P.- Marquette.. and I'm trying to find somewhere to go for a one day crop or weekend scrapping something or other..I need to get some dedicated time in, and learn! Although I've been scrapping and cardmaking on and off for years, I'd consider myself a beginner. Anyone know of anything coming up within driving distance of MQT?
Sorry I don't know of anything up that way!! I know of lots around this area though. So if you ever want to make the drive-just let me know...
Do you have any LSS around that you could contact about anything up and coming? Have you tried finding a Yahoo group for your area? Or dmarie.com is a good place to find people in your area also.
Hi!! Gaylord is only a hop skip and a jump from me!! So glad someone is close!! I am actually going to a fundrasing crop tonight in Charlevoix..If you get this and might be interested-let me know..Would be great to meet a fellow scrapper that is close by!!
We host a monthly crop in Charlevoix-don't know if you would want to drive down for that...And we are trying to get a group together for Friday night crops at the LSS here in Petoskey. That is $10 and provides dinner and 20% off any purchases. The monthly crop is free and is held usually the 4th Sat. at the Charlevoix Public Libary.
If anyone is interested just PM me and I can give you more details.
I live in Cadillac. I've lived in Saginaw and grew up in Flint. My favorite stores, "Scrapbook Peddler" and "A Cherry On Top" in Saginaw , "Forget Me Not" in Traverse City, and "Arnie's Arts & Crafts" in Houghton Lake. There is the Scrapbook Hut here in Cadillac as well. It's a little on the small side. But, they try very hard to provide a good selection.
Yeah I live in Walloon Lake actually-about 10 min. south of Petoskey. My son is a senior at Petoskey High School.
I will be in Traverse on Friday-hoping to make it to the store-Not Just a Memory is that the only scrapbooking store left in TC?
Is anyone going to be traveling up north any time soon..We are going to be having a free crop at the Charlevoix Libary on the 23rd of Jan. It goes from 10am-4pm.. We have lots of fun-hope to see you there...
Kathy, we only have one LSS now (used to have 3 at one point). It's on 9th Street by Walmart. It's called Masterpiece Memories. The owner is really great and if you're going on Saturday, it's the 12-hour crop day and I'll be there as well!
LOOKING FOR FELLOW SCRAPPERS IN KZOO AREA WHO MIGHT WANT TO GET TOGETHER AND SCRAP EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, LET ME KNOW. I'M A 28 YEAR OLD EXPECTING MOTHER FOR OUR FIRST, AND WANT TO GET A JUMP START ON HIS SCRAPBOOK, AND ALSO HAVE OTHER PROJECTS THAT NEED TO BE DONE, UGH! LIKE OUR WEDDING FROM 8 YEARS AGO! Looking to meet new firends and learn more from fellow scrappers.
Anyone in the Petoskey area? We are trying to get a group of girls together for a Friday night crop on the 13th. It is my best friends bday and I am hoping to get enough girls for the store to host the crop. We need 6 and have 3 so far...Let me know if your interested!
Hey girls I haven't been on here in forever! Just recently moved to Mackinac Island and missing all my scrapping friends...
Gotta get used to buying more on line and making sure I don't run out of stuff...
