My bad! (Where did the last four weeks go?!?!?!)

I promise to get in touch with the folk at Archivers and see what we might do after the first of the year (Jan/Feb). Scout's honor, I'll call on Wednesday and report back!

Happy Thanksgiving to those who pop in here until after.

That would be cool... I think they moved saturday scrapmania back to 5-close, so we could probably take it from open-4:30... if you call before they make the january calendar they might make sure not to block anything off for classes.

Woohoo! Jan. 23, Archivers of Madison (Middleton really ...) is setting aside their classroom for us SCSers!!! 1 - 4 p.m. it's all ours.

Michelle from Archivers (what a nice gal!) is emailing me with details, but want to give you a heads up, that evening 5 - 11 is their ScrapMania night and it includes dinner.

Michelle is setting it up so that those who want to do both will get a discount. There's a space limit (16 during the afternoon, 32 in the evening) and there are already some signed up for the evening.

I'll post more details as soon as I have them.

Cool! Sounds like fun! (if there are more than 16 people who are interested, I won't "sign up" for the afternoon part since I live close enough that I can entertain myself other ways, although I might drop in to say hello...)

Many thanks to Barb, who has graciously stepped into the quicksand of offering to show me how to set up a gallery (forgive her, Lord, she didn't know what she was getting herself into!) LOL! going to be bringing my laptop along with me to Archivers and at the very least, this should be entertaining...

I've heard from Michelle, and this is what I know so far ...

The evening will be $15 and it includes quite a bit of things, including a light dinner, the use of much of Archiver's equipment and some materials and prizes. I'm going to ask Michelle for a direct link for those of you who love to scrap and might be interested in the evening. I'm a bit worried I may get the info mixed up if I try to translate.

The afternoon will be $5 for the room. If you decide to attend both, the afternoon will be free of charge (thank you Michelle)! We (us SCSers) need to decide how to use our wonderful afternoon! Do we want to have it a chat & work on projects time? A mini-swap? A C&S (chat & shop) time? How do we want to spend our precious time? Let me know ... here or pm. I think I'll probably start a separate thread in a bit to organize and keep track of what we decide to do.

Michelle and I are working out who to pay and when. Hopefully, we will all pay directly to Archivers. I'll keep you posted on that one.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, all!

Jean--thanks for setting this up--I am pretty much up for anything that afternoon.

I am not sure if we have enough time to do a true "shoebox swap" if there are 16 that attend and only three hours. Maybe some people want to do a pre-made swap? We would bring so many premade cards to swap with others that have also done pre-mades. I am in for that!

Or we could just bring some projects to work on--that works too.

And, I am sure we will have time to chat and talk too!

There's going to be a Shoebox, some classes and free stamping time the weekend of January 30th at the Crowne Plaza near Mayfair Mall in Milwaukee. If more than 20 people sign up for it, we'll do a second Shoebox so it's not overwhelming for anyone to make too many cards. The Crowne will give me more info and pricing on Monday so I can post it here. I just bought a calendar for 2010 and it's totally empty - imagine that - now I can fill up every weekend with stamping! The Archiver's event sounds fun - I'll keep watching here for more info.

Jan. 30th ... excellent! (Is there a way we could bring ten cards, 5 complete, 5 to be made, and still be involved in the swap? That'd be so awesome for turtles like me! )

Well, maybe it would be wise to see who will be there for the length of both? Because it sounds like they will set us up in the back room (half the classroom) for the afternoon part, and if you stay for scrapmania, I am sure you can keep your seat, so you'd really be able to figure out what to do with the whole time?? (Last time I went to A's scrapmania, I just did cards all night, no scrappin.)

Good to know! I'm too intimidated by the thought of a scrapbook. Give me my safe little 4 x 6, LOL!

If we want to do a swap, I'd vote for one along the lines of all ready-made ... and maybe a limited amount (5? 10?). Between working, getting a house on the market and the Jan 30 gathering, I know I'll have my hands full. To say nothing of all of us having the holidays just behind us (and admit it ... some of us may be turning our Christmas tree into a Valentines tree ... am I right?!?!? LOL!)

So, in the spirit of no-to-low pressure, if we want to swap, could we do ready mades? Last year, when we got together at Gina's (and later at the McF Culvers) we brought things we'd made as a sort of show-and-tell. That was a lot of fun and no stress. At the first Gina gathering, Jessica was teaching a Copic class following our gathering and many of us chose to stay for that. That was fun and again, low stress.

My big vote will always be low on the stress meter, high on the social chat meter ... LOL!
But I'm very flexible and want to do what others find fun and useful!

I would be fine with a ready made swap (you can always bring an instruction sheet to hand out, or a supply list.) If you ever do the card swaps at scrapbook superstore on odana, that's how it's done. You bring the cards to class and each person takes a turn to show and talk about their card.

I also thought a small gift exchange might be fun. Bring a NEW $5-10 stamp or set (think a whiff of joy stamp, or a penny black slapstick, or a small basic grey set, etc., etc.). Bring your gift wrapped... each is assigned a number... draw a number and get the corresponding prize.

Funny thing is - When I lived in Madison i also kind of missed Wausau. Never thought that would happen. But I was still driving up here at least once a month to visit flamily and friends.

Hello,
I was sent some Archivers coupons for December. The nearest store is 2 hours away and I will not get to one until January when the Wisconsin SCSers meet for a day in January. If you would like these please PM me.

I know Brian Clarkowski. He was in my graduating class (West '87.) I saw him at our 20 year (!!) reunion a few years ago. He is a ER doc.

Hello Everyone,
I am new to SCS and am very excited to see opportunities to get together in Wisconsin. I live in Brookfield and there doesn't seem to be very much stamping in this part of the state (or I'm not looking in the right places). I would love to join in and meet all of you in Madison and Milwaukee if possible. I have also lived in Cambridge, Waunakee, Verona, Arena, Racine, Beaver Dam, and Madison. It would be wonderful to share my addiction to paper & ink with other stampers!

Becky--I live just west of Waukesha and there is lots going on in our area. Have you been to Creative Pals on Blue Mound, behind Kopp's? That is the home store of Whipper Snapper stamps--go and check it out! There are some shoebox swaps in the area. Keep chekcing the forum for "Get Togethers". I am sure you know that Gina K's store is in McFarland--that is a great place.

Are you into Stampin Up? There are some awesome demos in the area.

PM me if you want to chat more and maybe we can meet sometime!

Glad to have you with us--Barb

Hi Barb,
Thanks, I have been to Creative Pals once. Seems like a great store. I haven't been to Gina K's in McFarland - maybe after the holidays. I do love Stampin Up and go to workshops in Sauk County once in a while. I will keep checking the forum - can't wait to do a swap!

If you go to the SU! website, they'll help you find lots of demos in your area ... a sign of good times to come!

depending on how far you want to drive, I can PM you about my great demo who lives just off of highway 83--south of 94.

I would love to join in and meet all of you in Madison and Milwaukee if possible. I have also lived in Cambridge, Waunakee, Verona, Arena, Racine, Beaver Dam, and Madison. It would be wonderful to share my addiction to paper & ink with other stampers!

Hi Becky,

It's not as much stamping, but there is a scrapbook store on 74th and... Edgerton? In the shopping center across from Southridge Mall, where JoAnn's, SteinMart, and the Dollar Tree are.

I honestly cannot believe she's not open on weekends. I WORK ALL WEEK.

The Gina K team is pretty committed to their families first and have some pretty active kids. Last year when we went down, Jess's schedule allowed for this special opening of the store, but even then, Gina's DD was in a swim tourney so she wasn't able to see us.

Every now and then they do a Sat open house, but I have a feeling their online business keeps them really hopping. I know the packages have now taken over what was once a lovely stamp work room. If you are able to come down Friday, Gina's is open during the day, but I'm not even sure when she closes in the afternoon.

We sure could give you an itinerary of other great spots to visit! LOL! (And seriously, if you wanted to do a bit more traveling, my two fav places are actually in Janesville. >sigh< ) But maybe that should be another trip!

Anyway, yeah, it'd be awesome if we could go see Gina's, but the chattin it up at Archivers will be great, too!
