Crop & Create ~ Winnipeg

My good­ness are you Cana­di­ans ever so lucky to have all the Scrap­book & Cards Today Crop & Cre­ate events avail­able to you through­out the year. Cather­ine Tachd­jian real­ly knows how to put togeth­er an amaz­ing event. There was not one lit­tle detail over­looked. Each table was draped, had a bou­quet of fresh spring flow­ers, choco­lates and an event sched­ule. She had make n takes for every­one to do if they wished Fri­day and Sat­ur­day nights, as well as an amaz­ing dessert bar. I’m still think­ing about this dessert bar. It was CRAZY insane amaz­ing. The class­es dur­ing the event were spaced nice­ly and every sin­gle per­son I met was so warm and wel­com­ing. Tru­ly awe­some.

Catherine and Jen

All day Fri­day and Sat­ur­day, you could find Cather­ine and Jen at the reg­is­tra­tion table or as I thought of it… “Crop & Cre­ate head­quar­ters” which was just out­side the door to the ball­room. They were there to answer ques­tions and help any­one need­ing assis­tance with any­thing. It was so fun hang­ing out with this amaz­ing won­der duo as well as with Beth Kingston, Kel­ly Goree, Car­o­line Lau and Leica For­rest. It was just one big laugh fest with these ladies.

Event Sponsors

These awe­some spon­sors gave Cather­ine some incred­i­ble give­aways and I mean incred­i­ble. The give­away table was filled with all kinds of great prod­ucts that any scrap­book­er or mixed media artist would LOVE to get their hands on.

Prize Table

Just check out some of the awe­some prizes… I was­n’t kid­ding was I?

Dessert Bar

And here are just a few of the desserts that were quick­ly con­sumed from the dessert bar. Cana­di­ans have the BEST CHOCOLATE EVAH! Seri­ous­ly, I can­not stop think­ing about that darn dessert table.

Onsite Stores

Cather­ine even had a few onsite stores just inside the ball­room so scrap­pers had access to prod­uct instant­ly. I fell in love with this one stores dis­play. These altered suit­cas­es and type­writer were so cute.


Those who took my class­es were entered into a give­away for a signed copy of my book “Delight In The Sea­sons” and are you ready for this, a signed copy by Tim Holtz him­self of his book “A Com­pendi­um of Curiosi­ties”. How awe­some was it of him to send 3 copies of his book to give­away dur­ing the event.

Lisa & Leica

And oh my good­ness let me tell you about this amaz­ing lady Leica (said like Lisa) For­rest. She is super sweet, fun lov­ing, tal­ent­ed and pee your pants hilar­i­ous! There were sev­er­al times I just flat out could not look at her one more sec­ond or well, I would have had issues. It was loads of fun hav­ing her as my teacher assis­tant and just hang­ing out with her in between class­es.

I think most of you know that I’m usu­al­ly the qui­et more reserved one a group. I’m kin­da shy and well tak­ing pho­tos is cer­tain­ly not my most favorite thing to do. Well, Leica real­ly does not care about any of that and will just grab you and before you know it you are in front of a cam­era and she is telling you to smile, work the cam­era, look for but­ter­flies.… yes, I said look for but­ter­flies. That was a new one for me but evi­dent­ly I found them as she was very hap­py with the pho­to. LOL, she is crazy.

Then she looks at me and says, “now we are going to stick out our tongues”. Well this shy reserved girl was instant­ly think­ing um how did I get myself into this one? I told her I can­not do that and well, she just looks at me and says, “Okay then I’m gonna lick you”. Below is the result of that dis­cus­sion. LOL, I seri­ous­ly laugh every sin­gle time I see this pho­to.

Leica and Lisa

And I need to thank Leica for sev­er­al of the pho­tos post­ed here (Cather­ine & Jen, Prize Table and Lisa & Leica) since I kin­da snagged them from her FB page. I hope every­one has a Leica in their life. If not, go find one or for that mat­ter find her. She is awe­some.
