Things About Stuff: Chicago Scrappers Group

Monday, June 10, 2013

Hello dearies!

Did you know the title of my blog, Things About Stuff, is actually from a Futurama reference?  I named my blog this because I thought it was a great way to incorporate so much more than just my papercrafts.  The "stuff" of every day life.  During the month off, I did lots of thinking about my blog.  I decided that I would love to do some posts called "things about stuff" in honor of my blog title.  These posts would be a focus on something or event that happened in my daily life.  It would just be about "stuff."  Since I'm terribly at routine, I am just posting these at random (but hopefully try to post one every week or two).  So, here we go.

Being on the Practical Scrappers Design Team has opened up so many doors and opportunities for me.  One of the ladies on my design team, Christine, added me to a Facebook group called Chicagoland Scrappers.  It's a great group of {extremely talented} ladies.  We had our first meetup in April at the Archiver's in Downers Grove.  I was a little nervous about going to the meetup without knowing anyone, but I've been trying my hardest to just jump into things and not be afraid, so I went.  I ended up having an amazing time and meeting lots of really cool ladies.  Above is one of our photos from the meetup.  Below is another photo.  I really love that we are from all over Chicago but got together for a fun night of crafting.  Add a little CiCi's Pizza and lots of laughs and giggling, and you have our night.

Of course we took these photos at the end of the night when we were all exhausted and ready for a warm, comfy bed.  It was so much fun!  This past Saturday, we had another meetup.  Sadly, only four ladies were able to make it (including my dear sister Jen) but we had tons of fun nonetheless (and got nothing done.  Isn't that always typical of a crop?)  We didn't snap any photos, but here's one of my sister Jen and I waiting for Melissa (above) at the train station.  For this meetup, we went to the Archivers in Naperville instead.

We had lots of laughs and fun.  Hopefully for the next meetup, we can have another big group.  If you're in the area and want to join the Chicagoland Scrapbookers, send me an email or leave me a comment here and I will get you added!

  1. So sad I missed out on saturday, but I'm not surprised it was fun and that nothing got done. That's sort of the way things go, isn't it?
