Scrapfest was a blast!

Well - I finally caught up with Jennie and Bob to see how their latest adventure went - and it was a blast!

To start - I had no idea how much work was involved to take the show on the road! Jennie, Bob and Cathy packed for a couple of days to make sure there was a good selection of stock. Sherry went up as well on the Thursday and helped pack and load everything into the trailer  - and then the gang jumped into the car and off they went to Kitchener to set up. Apparently it was lots of fun and laughs along the way - ask Bob about Onroute - and see if he knows what it is now!

The group sure does travel well together - Sherry and Cathy hit the seat warmer button in synch, everyone teases Bob about his driving, Jennie is the main co-pilot, but Cathy and Sherry are the back seat drivers, and Bob just takes it in stride - never gets mad, maybe he just tunes them out???

Anyway, after a couple of hours unpacking and setting everything up, it was back to Sarnia for the night, making a mental note of the things they needed to bring the next day.

Friday morning they were on the road again, with more rearranging and set up, checking into the hotel and then back to the Aud to get ready for the doors to open.

Check out the pictures of the booth below.

Bob and Jennie - I think Jennie is giving Bob directions here.

Cathy - always knew where they put things!

Jess and Braedan on checkout.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hi, shop and do Make and Takes - you made the two days even more fun!

Stay tuned for more on the Scrapfest weekend. There were more adventures to tell!

On the Road Again......

Well - the Skribbles and Scraps gang will be hitting the road again this weekend. Bob, Jennie, Cathy and Sherry will be headed to Scrapfest in Kitchener on Friday. It is always such a great time! If you have never been - it should be on your must-do list. Check out the link. Scrapfest Kitchener 2012

If you don't have a ticket for Friday night - you're out of luck - it's sold out. But don't worry - Saturday is wide open and tickets are available at the door. 

Bob and Jennie love seeing friends come back year after year - and they love meeting new friends! So - if you've been following the blog over the last year - come by and meet the gang in person! 

Jennie always has some great make and takes prepared - and there is always a long lineup at their booth for both the make and takes (trust me, I know - I have been in it!) and for purchases  because of their great prices. But it's always worth the wait! They will have the latest products from the store and are always happy to give you ideas on how to use them.

Will we see you there? Hope so!

(Please note, the open crop for this Friday is cancelled because - hey - we're on the road again!

Bob the Builder!

Well - we're going to have to give Bob a new nickname - I am thinking "Bob the Builder"

Cathy sent me some pics of the punch rack he made for her - WOW WOW WOW!

In case you didn't know, Cathy has a hard time passing up a punch - she loves them! Storage however, is a problem when you love punches - so Bob came up with a solution. And it's on wheels too! Too cool!

Check out the pics:

Cleaver use of storage  - both sides, and the inside as well! Bob - you never cease to amaze me! I am guessing Skribbles and Scraps will get a few orders from others like Cathy who have just a few punches lying around!

What a day!

Well, I finally got a chance to touch base with Jennie about her wild weekend doing two shows the same day on March 24th. 

The verdict - It was a blast! 

Bob and Cathy went to Arkona with the scrapbooking crowd, and Jennie and Sherry were in Chatham for the card making day at St Clair College. The 4 of them set up Arkona the evening before, and Jennie and Sherry set up Chatham early that morning. 

It was a lot of work to pack up on Friday  - especially since stock was going to 2 separate places. And if that wasn't enough - Jennie and staff prepared a different make and take for each venue! Crazy I know!

The make and takes were FABULOUS - thanks so much for your feedback to the all the girls and Bob. It made all that hard work worthwhile. They love teaching you how to use new products - and I hear Inka Gold was a hit!

Thanks again to all who came out and supported Skribbles and Scraps - you're the best!
