I went to the Friday crop at Scrapbook Centrale this evening. I got almost nothing accomplished, scrapping-wise. But that's OK, because a few of us left the crop a little early and headed to Starbucks for a hot drink and some nice conversation.
I realized that these crops have become (for me) less about the scrapbooking, and more about the friendship building. It's a great de-stressor after the work week, and I find myself looking forward to it more each week.
