on the subject of crops

I didn't want to totally hijack Carrie's thread. Wink

Guess what happened yesterday while I was in Walmart? Totally random, but I ran into a friend that I hadn't seen in a long time. She was in front of me and I happened to notice a Cricut Toolkit in her basket. Of course I *had* to ask her if she had a Cricut and scrapbooked! LOL She not only scrapbooks, but has TWO Cricuts (small and Expressions) and owns over 60 (yes, SIXTY) cartridges. She says she owns every cartridge sold. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:!!!!!!!!! She lives less than 4 miles from my house!!!!! I was like "are you serious?!" Anyways, I asked her if she wanted to come to our crop on the 17th and she was thrilled. She says she wants to get together with me a few times a month!! Isn't that cool? She calls herself a Cricuteer. hahaha, and I didn't even know she scrapbooked!!! She's in her late 50's, and just didn't seem like the kind of lady that would scrapbook, if you know what I mean.

Thats great, right when you were wishing the neighbor was a scrapbooker you found someone else. Oh and are we having a crop on the 17th or is that something you are doing elsewhere? I must have missed that if it is a vc

The crop is here IRL with about 10 of my girlfriends. We are going to use a local church's fellowship hall, so we can spread out. I can't wait! I haven't been able to crop with them in over 3 months, so it'll be good to visit again.

When did we talk about our next Virtual crop anyways? Anyone?

LOL, I know! It's crazy! I asked her how she even remembers what's on what and she said she's been making herself a manual! It'll be fun to look at them all IRL, instead of online. Smile

that's a lot of cricut for one person. ROFL so cool that she's going to crop with you.

the friends I used to crop with moved away. I do it all by myself now, it's kind of sad. my neighbor crops but she's real sporadic (funny, I inspired her to get a Cricut, she got the Expression and now I borrow it sometimes).

:eek: 60 cartridges?!?!?!?! Holy cow!

That's awesome that you'll have someone else to scrap with! I haven't been to a crop with my group since late fall and I miss it.

Holy moly! I didnt even know there were 60 carts! I dont know if I would even find use for that many...but she would sure be handy to have near by Wink I hope you guys have fun at your crop. I was thinking about setting something like that up at our church. We have alot of scrappers at our church...one lady even owns a sb store but her store isnt big enough for all of us that scrap.

Wow that is wonderful! I didn't have that kind of luck at walmart last night:( but I did buy lots of fun stuff.

I don't think we picked a time for our next VC but I'm good for whenever!
