Coastal Crafters aka Growing my own crop

For years I have dreamed of starting my own crop, having attended online crops and then in real life they have been such a nice thing to do, spending time with like minded people.
However my nearest one is an hour and a half away and generally they are on saturdays. I work in retail so I wouldn't be able to go regularly. What I need is one locally so I need to start my own. I realised it would need to be classes as the guys will be new and won't have a stash.
Despite much encouragement and practical help from my online scrapbooking friends especially lovely Sue, I still hadn't got round to it. Until something clicked this summer when a couple of new friends I met at weight watchers were interested in scrapbooking and so I went ahead and booked the local hall.
We have had two classes so far, making christmas cards and a christmas layout and in a couple of weeks we will be tackling a christmas minibook for the ladies to record their memories of the season this year.
Then after Christmas we will be going back to scrapbooking and doing a different technique each month with hopefully by the end of next year me being able to stop teaching and be able to crop together 😊
Hi to Angela, Sarah, Sue, Lesley, Mel and thank you for starting with me 😍

I have also gone back to basics myself, watching YouTube tutorials and inspiration videos. Practicing basic techniques again. When was the last time I did distress ink blending? Years ago I imagine but I really enjoyed it of course. 
Resurrecting the blog is also something I hope this will inspire. Now if only I could win the lottery and stop that time wasting activity called employment 😄
