I loved the Monroeville conventions when they were there at the Expo Mart. So close and easy to get to. The Akron one "Adventures In Stamping" has been going on for yrs. The very first one they started was in Cleveland...That was the first one I started with...lol I agree... Stamping by yourself isn't all that much fun. After 25 yrs of stamping I got use to it, don't care much for it all the time, but hey, we gotta stamp...lol That's the first I heard of one being i Cheswick. I too many make cards...I started scrapping about 4 yrs ago but not kept up on it. I have a ton of photos that need to get done though. I was so excited when Michaels open up near the mall and by Target.
Oh finally someone close to me! None of my friends are the least interested in doing anything crafty and it just isn't the same doing it all by your lonesome! I haven't ever been to the Akron show but did go to the Monroeville one last year and it was wonderful. The show this year is in Cheswick and I plan to go to that one. I have only been stamping for a couple of years and mostly make cards, haven't really gotten into scrapbooking at this time.
