“Sounds like a farming thing.”

That’s what my grandma said when I explained to her I was going to a crop on Friday night.

Maybe I should have stuck with Scrap Mania, which is Archiver’s new name for Friday and Saturday night crops this year. Sounds a lot more exciting, right?

And it turned out to be a fun time. As much as I might age myself going to a scrapbooking event for many hours into a late Friday night, these events do help me get some things done and motivate me to do more on my own while I’m home. Plus, it’s fun spending time with my friends, bouncing ideas off each other and of course, taking a break to walk down to Menchie’s, a frozen yogurt shop a few stores down. (The bitter winter weather doesn’t matter since you can bring food to Scrap Mania as well!)

I’m excited I bought two scrapbooks to keep my pages safe until I determine which order they’ll appear in the book. Something about flipping through the pages to see what I’ve accomplished so far motivates me to do more as well.

My motivation has kicked in already, for it’s not even 9:30 a.m. on a Sunday and I’m about to do some cropping – no soil, seeds or sowing involved.

Happy scrapping!
