My Conventions

Sunday, January 20, 2008

I have been putting on scrapbooking conventions for going on 9 years. They are not the BIG ones like Scrapbook Expo, GASC, Mega Meet or CKC nor are they the retreats with 30-40 people, but they are 'in between'. I kind of like to call them "miniventions" because I have some GREAT vendors, awesome classes and the best part....cropping almost around the clock. I have 162 cropping spots avaiable per show.

My registration goes up about 6 weeks prior to each convention. For the first 6 years, it generally took up to the week of convention to fill up...and I didn't always fill up. At that point I started thinking, well, maybe this won't be able to keep going because maybe people don't want to get together and scrapbook like this....WELL....I admit...I WAS WRONG...*grin. For the last few years, my conventions have been filling up quicker and quicker.

I bring this up, because I have just broken a record.......I AM FULL in less than a week for the first time. Now it is the crop portion that is full and there are classes that still have space, but I am so excited about this I just wanted to share.

If you haven't been to a convention, plan on joining us in the Fall or even next year as we CELEBRATE 10 YEARS.
