The Crop Out Autism Franklin 2009 crop


I have to share how incredibly AWESOME the Crop Out Autism Franklin was. We had a small turn out, but we had a BLAST!! That's Tricia Morris and Michael Strong. All I can say is, I don't know if we can top our "instructors" for next year!! I'm already brainstorming in who we can invite. Do you think Becky Higgins or someone like that is aiming too high?! To be honest, I really don't know if even she could top Michael and Tricia...what an incredible combination!!
We took a fantastic card class from Michael and Tricia taught us Assembly Line Scrapbooking. Both classes were amazing. I used to watch them both on the Scrapbook Lounge on TVWeekly, when it was still available ( a weekly webisode) and fell in love with them there. To meet them in person, well...there are no words and they both were so patient and real people!!
The croppers who came to support this worthwhile cause were very generous with each other and our charity. We raised a total of $519 for the Johnson County Autism Support Group and can't wait to set the date for the next crop...looks like April!! April is Autism Awareness month.
I have more to share about the crop...but I'll give it to you in bits and pieces as I don't want to go on and on in one long post and because it seems I can't sit still very long to write. So much always going on!!
School on campus starts for me this coming Tuesday and things will get crazy from there on!! I'm taking four classes this quarter and each class meets once a week for four hours each. I have two classes on Tuesdays, one Wednesday evenings and one Saturday mornings. I'm still working full time as well! I always like a challenge!
Well, now I really need to get off to bed. I have to be up at 6:00 as I have to be at work at 7:30 tomorrow morning!!
God Bless and happy crafting!!
