Bee Creative

To bee or not to bee, ok I had to do it. Come on. It’s begging to be written.

Bee Creative. Catchy but also a reminder.

I don’t know about you, but my creative juices have dried up during this pandemic. Like Sahara Desert dried up. Many people have had time on their hands and have been doing everything from organizing their craft rooms to catching up on junior’s birthday layouts. Not moi. So, what have I been doing? Well, stuff. I did participate on some Zoom crops. That was fun. I made some shirts for us to wear at Disney World. Oh, I made name cards for Christmas gifts. Mostly I have been cleaning, moving stuff, getting rid of things, renovating, working, watching crafting videos, and wishing I had the time, talent and gumption.

Let’s face it. I need to craft. Period.

So, how have you been doing since our last event in March 2020? Are you feeling like I have? Are your creative juices down to their last drop? Well, here’s a solution – Scrap Dat!

Come one, come all (I’m full of cliche’s today) to Scrap Dat’s Bee Creative. You will have 48 hours of crafting time to scrapbook, paper craft, work with mixed media, paint, stamp, ink, cut, glue, unglue, glue again, sew, write, embellish, twist, shape, stick, poke, and so much more. You can get your scrapbooking going, dabble into painting, make a wreath, work with mixed media, paper mâché …oh the possibilities are endless.

Sounds good? Well, come on and register for the event, May 20-22, 202, 8 am – 12 midnight daily. We are in the Castine Center in Pelican Park in Mandeville, LA. You’ll get 10 square feet of table space and space beyond your needs to spread out, due to social distancing. Register for 1, 2 or 3 days. Order meals that will be delivered. Get a Friday afternoon yum-yum. Take a class, Shop with vendors. Each person gets a t-shirt (unless you register past 5/13/21; we may not have your size as we order a few extras of L and XL), goodies, snacks and chances for door prizes.

But, do you know what is priceless? It’s the fun and satisfaction you will have. You get to be with like minded adults that make you smile or even belly laugh. You’ll finish the project from down yonder that has been looming over your head. You’ll create something fresh to hang in your house. You’ll learn new techniques. Your creativity will be sparked, massaged and flowing. (Speaking of massages, a massage therapist will be available at the event.)

So, register now. Take the next step to making sure your creativity gets rejuvenated. Come to Scrap Dat. We’ll be waiting for you.


Registration makes a great Mother’s Day gift, too.
