Roxanne - I WISH Kristyn lived close by but she's actually 650 miles away. I drive up to visit twice a year and she flies down to go to stamp shows with me and then we meet in the middle once a year to go to a weekend crop retreat. She introduced me to scrapbooking when she lived here in Florida and then I got her started making cards after she moved to Georgia. You're right, it's so much fun crafting together whenever we get the chance!
Pat lives just a few miles from me. As you can see we're both in Venice. We are both members of a stamp club at our LSS, attend crops and classes there, go to a monthly crop at a local hospital (H2U), and go shopping at a town 60 miles away where there are so many craft stores you can't get to them all in one day!!!
