As part of our Virtual Crop, yesterday we had a ZOOM Conference Call where we played the "Never Have I Ever" game. It was a kick! Participants were instructed to hold up 15 objects, such as pens, pencils, paint brushes or straws. Sondra read a series of statements that started with "Never Have I Ever" and if a participant HAD done that item, they discarded one of their items. We thought we'd share the fun, craft-inspired statements: "NEVER HAVE I EVER . . ." ". . . taken price tags off items I purchased at the Craft Store so I... Continue reading

Many of us crafters start our creative journey with one type of craft. We may have started scrapbooking but explored cardmaking too. We may be knitters but have dabbled in painting or jewelry making from time to time. Most of us have attempted a Home Decor project or two. So, for our last challenge of the weekend. Take a picture of a Home Decor Project that you've created and share it with us! We'll probably get some great ideas! If you're still awake, we wanted to make this last challenge of the weekend easy for you. And, we're going to... Continue reading

We've changed our routines due to the Shelter in Place Order. Instead of gathering to craft in person, we're participating in this Virtual Crop. When we are places, we're practicing social distancing. And, unfortunately we haven't been able to sit in a restaurant in nearly two months. When you're allowed to sit in a restaurant again, WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO FIRST? Share with us! We may discover a new place we need to check out. Or, we may discover we all have similar favorites and we can make a future date with one another! Our dates will have... Continue reading

Have you ever gone a day without touching an envelope? Probably not! Whether you are getting your mail out of your mailbox, opening mail, or sending a handmade card . . . you probably touch an envelope each and every day. Thanks to the internet we learned a few things about envelopes that may (or may not) be interesting . . . The very first envelopes date back to 3500 to 3200 B.C., when ancient people in the Middle East molded clay coverings over coins during business transactions. Paper envelopes were invented in 2nd century B.C. China, usually to enclose... Continue reading

This is the final day of our Virtual Crop and we're thankful for everyone who is participating. What a great, appreciative group! Since we're feeling the love, we'd like to share a few quotes about thankfulness: “Before I get out of bed, I am saying thank you. I know how important it is to be thankful.” —Al Jarreau “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” —Eckhart Tolle “We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count.” —Neal A. Maxwell Now that you're focussed on the positive... Continue reading
