Sacramento Area Shoebox Swappers (SASS)

My goodness, it has been over a month since I updated this blog. It's not like I don't have stuff to download on here -- its more about finding the time to do it.

This Saturday is the second SASS card swap and I am hosting it here at the mobile home park where we live. We will be using the clubhouse and 15 ladies will be participating. They are coming from around the Sacramento area including Oroville, Woodland and Vacaville.

These kinds of events are posted on Splitcoast Stampers which is a web site for stampers and other paper crafters. Its not necessary to be a member of SCS, however it helps in order to get updates from any events a person is interested in following.

If you don't know what a Shoebox Card Swap is, each one attending makes up a card sample and then makes up kits of all the materials needed to make the card. Everything is brought to the swap in a shoebox or basket. We spend the day making each others card and go home with, in this case, 15 cards. The theme is Holiday Cards so there will be cards for Halloween, Thanksgiving/Fall, Christmas and Birthday.

We have a potluck lunch too.

I'm excited to see the cards everyone has made.
