Who's ready for National Scrapbooking Day?

I'm so excited! This is kinda like Christmas. I started a little spread sheet to help me keep track of all the fun stuff that's going on on NSD this Saturday! :)

RAKScraps, of course, is kicking off Scrap Week, with lots of fun challenges, chats, prizes all week long. But since we spread it out all week, that means we can spend some time checking out all the other stuff going on on Saturday! And besides the crops, I know there will be a TON of sales. Woohoo!


Of course, I can't find one place that lists everything so I thought I do it here. :) If you have anything going on or have heard of anything else, let me know!

Scrap Week at RAKScraps...
* Gallery Opening mixer with Jeanine on May 5 at 9:30 pm EST

** I saw a great tip on Amy Edwards' blog - Do your shopping early! You can leave stuff in your cart as long as you are signed in, and then check out when the items are on sale! I'm sure the stores will all be having a lot of traffic tomorrow, so this is a great idea!

What a great idea Robin! One thing to add for sales...Gina Miller's products will be 35% off all day. I'll let you know if I find anything else!

How cool! I'd just been thinking this morning that I needed to see if there was a central list anywhere!

BTW, I'm pretty sure there's only one hour time-difference between Central and Eastern, so you'd be an hour late to all of SP's stuff if you use those times. ;)
