Whatever you wanna call it...
Hey Chris...since you havent gotta job yet maybe you & I should be working on OUR next Shackapaloosa!? (I see in another thread you said something about this)
Hey everyone! Let's push Chris into working on this. I have the web site if you wanna take a look at it?Maybe Chris wants it to be a secret still?! It is really a pretty place. Maybe we should start a list of who all would wanna go there, so we kinda have a head count.
I Think she said in the spring is good right? When is best for everyone?

Count me in :)

I think we were talking about May. Looking at May 2008, these are the weekends:

May 3-4
May 10-11 Mothers' Day weekend (we may not want to do this then)
May 17-18
May 24-25 Memorial weekend (again, not sure we want to travel this weekend)

I can't wait to hear all about it after you check it out...

I think we talked about the last weekend in May or the first weekend in June. Sounds good to me.

Do you already have a location picked out Robinkay? I want to see. Novi (in MI) has their annual scrapbook convention in May! May looks good on my calendar.

definitely not the holiday weekends. I vote for May 17-18 because kids are still in school. Hotel rates, etc should still be cheaper.


09-25-2007, 01:38 PM
May 17-18 might work better for me too....where would this be? Does anybody have a link or secret info that they can share with us?


09-25-2007, 01:46 PM
All Chris has divulged to us so far is that it is someplace in Indiana.


09-25-2007, 02:05 PM
Hmmmm.....I wonder if it's at the place Martha Stewart has mentioned called the Crop-a-Doodle-Doo in Arcadia, Indiana?

09-25-2007, 02:45 PM
I'm working on it. LOL I'm making a few phone calls today and we are going Thursday morning to look at a place. I'm looking for a place just to "crop" and hang out. No convention or show.

Chelsey had the idea of "shoe box" projects and I love that idea. When we have a date and place we will work on that idea more!

With the last weekend in May being Memorial weekend, I am not so sure that is a good weekend for me. In Charlotte, that is our biggest Nascar race so people will be flying in and out all weekend. Indiana may be close enough to drive to, I will have to see how far we're talking :). Maybe Ellie and Michelle can all drive up with me :).

09-25-2007, 10:24 PM
I'm ready to help Chris with the "shoe box" project organization! ... pick the weekend and I am there!!! I'd prefer not mother's day or memorial day if we can help it ....

Say what?? A weekend get together that I can go to?? Details, details, I must have details! (hehe, that's my line for DH when he comes home with juicy family gossip, but only half the story!).
My 2 cents, I can't do Memorial Weekend either, already have a family memorial service that they planned for then. Mom's cousin from out of state just passed away and we're all getting together then. You know plan it far enough out so nobody can say no?

I think I would be able to drive to Indianna...It would be fun to do a road trip with Sherri and Michelle and possibly Debbie.

09-25-2007, 11:32 PM
Ohhh...I plan on being in IL at the end of April and beginning-mid May! This might work perfect. My brother's baby is due then :) Im waiting to hear back from him to see if they'd be ok with me being there with the new baby. I already plan on hitting up a friend in Missouri, I can bounce over to Indiana too ;)

I think the weekend of the 16th, 17th & 18th!! That way there is no chance of snow if we have a late winter again this year.

We are going tomorrow to check out a place and I will include details and prices tomorrow!

09-26-2007, 04:01 PM
Hurry up ... I can't wait to hear all the details. I need to start PACKING!!!

Am I the only one who doesn't know what a shoe box project is??

09-26-2007, 07:18 PM
I don't know what a shoe box project is either, and I can't wait to hear what it is.

09-26-2007, 07:53 PM
I don't know about this weekend, but I do know what a shoe box project is. It is also called a shoe box swap. Each participant makes a card or some other project and prepares the supplies for everyone else in a shoe box. Then when you get together other people do your project/card and you do thiers. I've done this with small groups before of like 4-5 people. We actually all did one card at a time. When we were finished with my project, we moved on to the next person's project.

Wow this sounds great. Indiana is a very do able drive for us. Chelsea, we can pick you up on the way thru IL, if you want. This time you won't have to drive alone, if you don't want to. I need to post it on the calendar at work so I can be sure and get it off.

I like the May 16-18th weekend. Hmmm. I might be able to make this happen! I'm sitting here getting gitty (spelling?) just thinking about it!

I'll fly down and drive with everyone--I've heard about the shoebox thing but not clear what it is--Anything inky an sticky sounds good to me!
