Hi y'all! Haven't been on this thread yet! I'm outside of Richmond. I think riverroadrn has said she's been to the Memories Galore store. Anyone else? It's great!!
I'm new to the area, so not too sure about how far you are. I saw there was a convention in chantilly, Virginia. I finally found it on the map and saw it's about 2 1/2 hours from here. So don't think I'll make it this year!

Hey Cysco! Welcome to the boards!!

Hi Maureen! You're just a little over 2 hours from me...I haven't been to the Memories Galore store over there, but I might have to make the trip!

Oh I forgot to tell ya riverroadrn, there is a LSS in Roanoke that I have been to...Scrapbooks Galore and More. It's on Orange Ave. Then there is a Michaels, Joann's, etc. I wish there were more here!

Is anyone else making the trip to Chantilly for the Expo? It's close to 3 hours away, and I would LOVE to go...but don't think we're going to make it.

I was SO thrilled to see other members from Virginia. Actually, I'm really excited now! I am also from Lynchburg, VA and am having a difficult time finding scrappers who aren't stuck into only one line of scrapping. Sadly, I have to agree that there isn't much around this area for Scrapbooking. There is a cute little scrapbook store that I go to for classes here in Lynchburg but she's currently out on Maternity leave. Other than that, I have been to the scrapbook store in Roanoke a few times. I do know there's one also in Charlottesville and a ton in VA Beach area but I haven't been in that direction for quite some time. I've heard of the one in Richmond but haven't been to it as well as to the stores in Northern VA. Hanging on to the edge of my chair after hearing that a Hobby Lobby is FINALLY coming nearby. Curious about the shops in NC. Sadly, we only have one car so I don't drive and DH isn't very tolerant about my desire to just go searching for scrapbook stores. Would love to plan some get togethers with those of you that are nearby or maybe a halfway point for those who aren't. I am looking for some scrapbook pals to just get together to become friends and work on scrapping projects. Please feel free to contact me anytime....

Absolutely! We should do some shopping trips, crops, etc together!

Once we all get to know each other, I would love to go to Richmond to the Memories Galore store, and maybe take a trip over to VA Beach! I hear there are a ton of stores there.

LOL, I have a minivan with lots of room and seating for 7!

Oh hey! for you Richmond area gals, have you heard anything about the My Girlfriend's Kitchen thing in Midlothian? It seems really neat (and great for me 'cause I am the worst cook in the world, LOL) I've been trying to find someone who has done it...to see if it's any good or not. Here's the link:

Hello Virginians
I will be visiting my brother and sister in law next month in Richmond. I love to visit LSS out of town. Who knows? They might have something different than what I can find here in Missouri. Anyway, I saw Memories Galore mentioned. Where in Richmond is it? My brother and his wife are scrap-illiterate and wouldn't have a clue. I know, it's so sad.

there are two, but the one i do know about and have been to is the one at Brandermill, this is off Hwy.360. The sign is a hanging one,on the side of the highway. It is a wonderful store and the ladies were soososoo kind, they even gave me a newsletter with a coupon. I was there in April. If your brother knows where 360 is you can find it.also Richmond has a wonderful dining place,called the Tobacco Company, the food is yummy.Hope you have a great time in Va.

One idea I had...Maybe we could have a "garage sale/trade" type of area set up. We all have extras, and products that we never use. Bring em along, maybe someone will see something they like. You can sell or trade!

That would be good, like one corner of the room, we could all package our things we dont use or need in big freezer bags and either trade or sell them. I know I have lots of pink girly papers that I prob.wont use much of and some
other stuff. thats a great idea...another thing i would JUMP on is homemade stuff, if someone wants to make their gas money or scrappin money, i will definitely be ready to buy homemade tags,toppers,library pockets and anything like that, even homemade cards,deco squares,etc. If folks wanted to do packets of pages that would be even better. anyhow, these are great ideas,keep em coming.

Oh Rebekah, i just wrote an epistle and then toggled to save this thread and lost it. I am like you, so not up for a long road trip. I apologize but the trip to NYC in April killed me,i was sick for two weeks. I want this to be fun and exactly what we want. I am going to load the blazer up with all my stuff and get myself ready for fun and inspiration. Would it be better to shop then crop or eat then crop? I hope kay can do the stamp camp.my local rep had one and i had so much fun. I want to get ideas from you all. I will be happy to pull the details together, but it needs to be what will be fun and inspirational to us. BTW, I found out today there is a small sb shop in clarksville. i am going there soon.its near the pizza pub.Please Corynn keep the ideas coming, Kay,where are you? I need fun ideas.

Oooohhh, I'll be in C'Ville Fri, right @ the pizza pub, Brian and his band are playing. Maybe I can at least peak in the window!
What w/e are you palnning for? I think that we should shop, eat, crop. That way we have new supplies and are full of energy to crop all day. Are there a lot of people to come? I know of a few things that we did in WV, but it depends on the size of our group. I think that maybe we can get some kind of swap? Maybe tags/envelopes? Or maybe we can bring door prizes? Think up some games? I'll think on it too. I can't wait! Hopefully this time I will have my LOs a little more oragnized (but I doubt it! ) I like to pick out everything as I go, I can't seem to put a pack together w/photos, embellies, etc., 'cause I never know what I'm going to do!
Check in later!

this is beginning to sound better and better. I have a friend from the hospital in HR that is a cardmaker and she wants to branch out into sbing. She will more than likely want in on this. I would love to make some tags to take and swap, am very poor at handmaking stuff but I will try.I looked at some of angels stuff and it is BEAUTIFUL, so I may get some inspiration from her. The door prize thing will be fun. Ok. where is everyone else?

okay ladies when is the thing gonna happen? I think I will pm kay and see what she has come up with for a date.

(ooh, by the way, Sorry Beck!- didn't mean to leave you out! HONEST INJIN!)

yeah, door prize would be good. WE can always play scrapper's BINGO. Have a card making or tag making contest. OOH, I know, we can make index cards kinda like address cards for everyone coming. OOOOH, the scrapper's trade table! Wonderful idea. I know that I have tons of things that I will probably never use (not that they aren't wondering things, just things, I would never use!) I joined a swap some time ago and got 2 of everything, so I would be glad to trade someone for something else.

Welcome aboard Lisamomof4. Hope you will be able to come down for the get together! We would love to have ya!

I don't usually go to the Harvest Fest, so whatever you and Angel want to do is fine w/me.

Your right about Brian...he thought scrapbooking was cutting out newspaper articles and gluing them in those big books. He couldn't understand why I would be so excited about doing that!

I just returned from visiting my brother in Richmond and had the opportunity to visit the Memories Galore at Brandermill. There didn't appear to be very many LSS there compared to what we have here in Missouri, but this is a very nice store. The products are arranged by theme (birthday, holidays, etc) rather by manufacturer which makes it very easy to select your goodies if you are not familiar with the store. I did find a few things there that have not been available to me locally. They were having a big sale on Accucuts and a contest going on.
The ladies there were very helpful and offered to ship me any items that I needed. She was thrilled to know that her store had been mentioned on this website.

I will definitely visit this store again when I'm in the area.

How does Oct 1 sound to everyone for our All-Day Crop in Lynchburg? thought we needed to throw some days out there to see how everyone feels about it. Let's all post and see if we can come up with a definite date, time, and place.

Kay - yohooo, Kay - does this date work?

OK my turn. I live in WInchester and I know there are a ton of scrappers here-they just must be unaware of this site. We have a great little store here and some craft stores that carry stuff-though several have come and gone:( We are getting a Michaels soon. It will be nice not to have to drive an hour and stock up on things that I might end up not using.

To the girls down south- I love it there! I went to Radford and miss the area terribly!

Rebekah, tell brian that i am deeply,truly hurt to the bone. all i try and do is save you dollars on sbing stuff.sniff sniff. i dont think i will get over the trauma, it might take a small giftie or some other trinket to make me forget the pain of being called a bad influence on another fellow scrapper.

OK, went to HL in D'Ville today. I can't go back! Seriously, I'll be broke all the time!

Its OK, Susan, I don't think that of you! In fact, I love you for telling me about any great sbing deals!

Well I have been a scrapper all these years and this is the first I have seen of this message board..

I am from Chesapeake, VA near beautiful VA Beach..we are loaded with scrapbook stores here..I have one right at my back door then within 4 miles is another one..I have at least 10 within 1 hr of me..
I am a scrapbook sales rep and know about all the VA stores.If you have a question for me in the area let me know I will look to see where a store is.

For you Richmond scrappers..there is a new store opened up recently in Ruth Glen VA..near Kings Dominion if I am correct in location..it is called Sassy Papers N More 10465 Gallant Way, Ruther Glen, VA 22576
Owners name is Patrica..Tell her Mary Full referred you there..Please spread the word and get her store name out there. She is new to store front and is an awesome gal..she makes her own papers too..so be sure to stop by and then post to the loop what you thought..

Lets get this VA board FULL..
Mary
