Wrapper's Delight Version 2.0

We had so much fun last year at Wrapper's Delight - we decided to do it again. And the Running with Scissors Crop was so much fun, we want to do it again, too - with a twist. So we're bringing to you Wrapper's Delight Version 2.0!

Think of it as a more intimate Wrapper's Delight! We know Christmas is right around the corner - we're talking 38 days away!!! So, come hang out for the day and get those craft projects finished up, work on your December Daily album, or finish your Christmas cards - whatever you need to work on! Or just use the day as a getaway for you! Just a break from the craziness. (Oh, you can bring your favorite beverage of choice, some snacks if you want, and maybe a lamp for your spot!)

So here are the details:
Friday, December 11th from 8am to 10pm
at Mrs. Claus's Workshop
(okay, Lucy's house)
You and 19 of your closest friends - that's right - this crop is only for the first 20 to register and pay!!

And here's where the twist comes in - this isn't just a crop!
We're having some holiday fun! First, we are going to do a Cookie Swap!! Everyone that comes needs to bring 2 dozen cookies, on a tray and we'll swap them! Every will leave with a mix of yummy cookies they can share with their family, or give as a gift!! Don't worry - you can go buy some cookies out of the bakery if you aren't a baker, or just buy the slice and bake cookies - they are all yummy!!

We can all share our recipes, too - and we'll have more than twenty recipes to whip up before Christmas, or for next Christmas!!

And then we'll have a little Christmas fun and play Dirty Santa. So, everyone can bring a handmade ornament and we'll play Dirty Santa! Fun times, right? I love playing Dirty Santa!

All the other fun crop activites will be going on, too - the Accucut and Slice will be ready for you! Goodie bags and door prizes, as well!

There will be some Scripts news, too!
You won't want to miss that, I promise!!
(I'll give you a little hint - there will be some GOOD sneaks and an announcement you won't want to miss)

Okay - you can click over there - on the right - and register and pay. Keep checking back here for more info about the fun to come!!

Over $4,000 raised for Breast Cancer Awareness

So happy for Brittney! She is walking in the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. Her goal was to raise $100. She thought she could probably raise a little more than that. We had a silent auction and had several attendees and designers donate something. We had autographed books, kits, and handmade items. We gave the attendees a couple of hours to bid on silent auction sheets. As I was walking in to help Brittney close it out, someone stopped me and said we should take each item and open it to the floor. Sounded great to me.....go tell B. She did and I bet we doubled our money! It was so fun! Have you ever been to a live auction? Everyone gets into it and has fun outbidding each other. We raised around $1800 on Friday night.

Saturday night rolls around and we asked around for a few more items to auction off. Margie had on an adorable apron that was handmade by her! She offered to put it up for bid. Jessica donated 10 classes in her Scrapbooking Alchemy series, Jenni Bowlin donated 2 kits, Nancy Holley donated a camera strap and ended up donating 2 to the top 2 bidders! They went for $75 adn $80, I think! Margie's apron was a huge hit. She ended up donating to the top 2 bidders, as well. One went for $350 and the other $400!! Gretchen offered a custom mini album, Gail, Bella Blvd designer, donated a birthday mini album. We were on FIRE! It was the most exhilarating feeling! Brittney was brought to tears. So much generosity. It was a moment I will never forget. We ended up opening the floor to anyone that wanted to donate $5 or $10 and got our total up to $4000. Wow, that is a lot of money raised in a weekend. We are so blessed to have support around us. We have all been touched in some way by this disease and many of us will have to face it in our future. I am so glad we could do something to help. I know Brittney will do a great job walking 60 miles! She really is an inspiration. I am so proud to be her friend.

Margie and Brittney raising over $4000 for Breast Cancer Awareness! B is walking 60 miles in Atlanta!!! This was one of the BEST moments of the event!!

Brittney, Margie and the end of a LONG weekend. We still look pretty cute, huh?

Ray and Mary Lou! The cutest newlyweds on the block! He was so happy to be there with her! I loved watching them all weekend.

Here is that cute Stephanie from Bella Blvd, that I keep talking about. Love this girl!!

I ripped this little collage from Elizabeth's blog. It was just too easy to have so many pics in one place! Thanks, Liz!!

They muscle man in the corner is a hilarious story! He was scouting the place for an event of some kind and Margie asked for his picture! Of course, he obliged. I think he likes to pose for the camera!

The group pic is of us all setting our cameras on the table on timer and then running to get in the picture! So much fun!!

Thanks to Margie and Elizabeth for posting all the pictures. It made it so easy for me! If you have pictures from the event put a link to your blog or facebook page for us all to see! Thanks for a fantastic weekend!!
