Crop in a fun, relaxing atmosphere with good company each month. Cropping Cafe is grateful to offer monthly scrapbooking on the eastern shore in the heart of Salisbury, Maryland.
This is me
My love for crafting and creating developed into a passion for scrapbooking in 2001. I created my first family album within one week of discovering Creative Memories products. This passion spilled over to my friends and evolved into getting together to scrapbook. I have offered monthly crops and weekend retreats since 2005. I transformed three area homes into a relaxing space for private getaways in 2009 while I searched for the perfect scrap house to purchase. These days, I find myself happily involved in all things rooted in scrapbooking - as well as, creating with the Cricut. I continue with personal art projects, enjoy creating mini albums and altered books, teaching scrapbooking, and making anything I 'get the whim' to create (hence my company name: LF Whim Design). I am no longer searching for a scrap house to buy, I offer my weekend retreats at hotels in Ocean City, MD and Chincoteague, VA and that has been a lot of fun. To top it off, I am still blessed to offer my monthly crop at and it continues to grow. I am grateful for all that God has provided. I have met many wonderful women who love scrapbooking just as I do- I hope to meet you soon.
I HAD high hopes for 2021! Think I jinxed myself when I got my Calendar actually printed on postcards :) I am on my second round of changes and it's APRIL!!
As many know, I made a change in location this year and moved our 2021 Monthly crops to Hampton Inn in Salisbury - after just one month, I was told their renovations would affect my contract for three months. OK, I can roll with that. Contacted the great people at Christian Community Center and they could house us for that time period.
Guess what. Renovations are moving along slower than expected - now delayed until September! Yes, Covid bit again :) but I am taking this opportunity to make more positive changes.
So, my upcoming dates have changed. Check out the Crop Events tab. The Christian Community Center has welcomed us longer for my monthly crop. And, what I am really excited about - is I have added 2 Fall Retreat dates! More time to scrapbook around the crop - stay over or locals can commute.
The ladies are just wonderful and I enjoy seeing them each month. They are so helpful and welcoming to new
scrappers and new attendees, which adds to the pleasing atmosphere. If you are looking for a place to crop monthly or just every so often, give us a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.
We crop on Friday until midnight and come back again on Saturday - for just $25. You can register from from this website. I will send emails out also and post to Cropping Cafe Facebook group. Please contact me to be added or if I can answer any questions. The dates are subject to change while at the Christian Community Center but I should know of that at least 3 weeks prior.
I have to mention the new scrappers I met in January at Ocean City's Scrap Weekend. Lots of new faces and just wonderful, scrapbooking loving ladies. I hope you can join us at one of the new Fall dates in Salisbury.
"... He commanded our forefathers to teach to their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget His deeds but would keep His commands." Psalm 78:5-7
