WOW... the walls are closing in....

Hello Fellow Scrappers.... it's been awhile since I've posted to my blog and I'm very sorry for that. It seems time has really gotten away from me.

Oh well... I'm here now!

I've been very busy the last couple of days reading blogs and then reading some more blogs... scrappin' blogs that is... all this research is keeping me from climbing the walls and I'm getting some super tips and techniques along the way.

Also, I talked with a lady last night about doing a "swap" or "round robin".  If you don't know what a "swap" is then let me explain....

you get 10 to 12 scrappers to commit.... Let's say we get 12... ok... each person will be responsible for getting 12 pieces of one item such as cardstock or buttons or paper or some sort of embellishment or sticker or such and then each of the 12 scrappers will send their 12 items to the organizer and then she will package them all up so that each of the 12 ladies will get 1 each of the 12 items.... The organizer will then mail the packets to each person and voila.................. each person has the fixings to complete a page layout... This is a great way to get rid of some of you stock or inventory (if you have that many of 1 item).  Does this make sense?  I think it's a great idea... Let me know what you think and if you would be interested in being a part of  us starting a swap.

I'm going to do a little more research on the round robin and then we'll talk about doing that as well.

Well, I'm going to get off here now and do a little more scrappin' research... I'll keep you posted on what I find.

Luv to u all!
