Yesterday I had the privilege of attending a Cricut Swarm (like a crop) in Shipshewana, Indiana. There were about 50 ladies who attended and it was such a fun day. Five of my
friends attended with me and that made it so very special. I met some very nice gals too.
This facility was fantastic! The room was huge and we each had half of an 8 foot wooden
table with great electrical hook ups. You would not believe the meals we had. First of all
when we arrived there was an abundance of rolls, juice and coffee. The at 11:30 they put
out a great "box" lunch consisting of a ham sandwich, chips, grapes and huge cookie. At 5:00 P.M. we were served this most delicious meal. We had a warm roll, salad with home made cream Italian dressing (we all wanted to lick our bowls clean), 2 large pieces of fried chicken, green beans and then this huge piece of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Everything was
yummy and we all were stuffed.
Now, don't ask me how much I got done yesterday? I think I love to talk too much. ha. I started out paper piecing 2 Minnie Mouse cards and then JoAnn loaned me her Tinkerbell cartridge, which I haven't purchased yet. So, I switched and started doing Tinkerbell. I didn't get her completed her either, because they had a card making contest and I had to stop and make a card for the contest.
Several gals were interested in how the Design Studio Software Program for the Cricut worked, so I was helping them with that. But, I learned last year that I don't go to the Swarms to accomplish much, but more to enjoy making new friends and gabbing.
Colleen and Vickie drove up from a couple hours south of me and spent the night with Jon and I.
This way they didn't have to get up before the crack of dawn to get up here. We enjoyed having them so very much and it made for a great time starting Friday night.
