World Cardmaking Day vs. Tropical Storm Karen

Due to many of us having obligations in connection with Hurricane Preparedness, I will not be able to host the World Cardmaking Day Crop tomorrow at Michaels.  L

While the hope is this storm will turn away, and/or dissipate greatly due to the dry air mass moving in from the West, everyone is urged to stay informed regarding Tropical Storm Karen, and to heed the recommendations of local authorities.  

Here are some links to local and national news websites, as well as the National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service, so you can stay up-to-date.

Stay safe, everyone!

World Cardmaking Day Crop THIS Saturday!

Hope you have your totes packed and ready, because THIS Saturday -- Saturday, October 5th, is World Cardmaking Day!   (Always the FIRST Saturday in October.)

From my understanding, it originated from being the day that most crafters would start working on their holiday cards and projects, and because it was so universal, it became World Cardmaking Day.  Now, papercrafters everywhere take this day to celebrate their passion for handmade greeting cards, get together to crop, socialize, party, play games, and even win contests and prizes.

I will be hosting the World Cardmaking Day Crop at Michaels (8851 Veterans Blvd. in Metairie) between 3pm and 9pm.  We have lots of fun planned, and the fee is only FIVE DOLLARS ($5.00) to participate!

In addition to crafting some holiday cards, there will be goodie bags, refreshments, games, and make-and-takes for each paying participant.  A Cricut Expression will be there for shared use, along with a decent selection of cartridges.

Seating is limited, so please call/text me to reserve your seat and goodie bag.  At that time, I will give you more information on what you'll need to bring, and what you won't need to lug along with you. 

Whether you choose to spend this day with us or with other friends, I'm certain you'll have a great time working with the craft that brings us all such joy!

Call / Text (504) 812-2261, or E-mail

Until next time, happy scrapping and stamping!
