The ladies at the paper-scrap website that was my "home" for many years talked about organizing one in a cabin or beach house, but it hasn't yet come to fruition...
That's awesome, Rebecca! I hope you will all get together!!
It would be fun to plan an SSD retreat weekend...maybe somewhere cheap to fly into, like Las Vegas

She would also have weekend scraps where you showed up for a day and just scrapped!

They were both amazing and it would be on the one thing about paper scrapping I actually miss! I would love to get together with other scrappers! Chatting, sharing ideas, seeing what others were working on, snacking on food, shopping as was all so much fun!
Oh, a beach house would be amazing for retreats!!
I agree, Dawn... It's so much fun to get together.

I purposely don't ask for the WiFi password so that I don't get distracted with shiny Internet things. Last year I got 12 pages done in 12 hours! It's the most productive I am all year.

I don't go to crops otherwise but my mom goes to big scrapbook expos, etc. now that she's retired and crops at those. She used to crop at our LSS until they all closed down.
What a fun activity to do with your mom, LeeAndra! Not getting the wifi password is a great idea!! Maybe I should have my hubby change our password every night, then I'd be much more productive
