Sorry, dumb question. My husband accuses me of being a 50 year old woman trapped in a 22 year old's body. lol

I love to scrapbook and have stores close with classes and others who share the hobby. We meet and put our books together. Any thing like that on Stt or any other islands?

Nope, there are enthusiasts here too. Travelwoman and Becky R have a group that has had at least one meeting. Unfortunately, we are on STX.

I'm on STX, and am looking forward to my stuff arriving on the next ship from Florida. Both of my daughters are really good at it and I've been stockpiling "stuff" go go gangbusters with it. I look forward also to having "crops" to share my "stuff".

Judi- Could we try again to get a group together?? I am about your age and love to scrapbook. Currently trying to re-do my kids baby pictures and get them out of those horrible plastic books we used then! We are also from the midwest - Kansas City. We've been on STX since last summer. I'd love to do a scrapbooking 'get-together' if anyone is up for it.

Judi and Linda-

I am headed for the states next weekend and will be back on May 30 - if you think of anything you need that you didn't get ordered, let me know...you can PM me and I will give you my cell phone number. We'll be in Michigan for several days, then I'm off to Arkansas and then St. John/Virgin Gorda/Tortola/Jost for 10 days...BS (Beloved Spouse) will be in W. Palm Beach, Florida for a few days.

Just be really specific with any scrapbooking requests, since I still don't know anything about this (although I think it is pretty cool!)...but Linda, at least I will be in a place where I can ask and yes - people WILL understand my accent!
