Ryan and Julie became friends while shopping and cropping at their local (but now closed) scrapbook store. When the store was closing, they quickly realized that what they would miss most was gathering together on Friday and Saturday evenings at the store’s crop room with their friends and sharing ideas. After much discussion, they decided to open their own crop space to offer everyone a place to work on crafts and chat with friends for the day or evening!

In 2014, we were thrilled to expand our team to include our good friend Wanda Callahan. She is a  long-time LNC cropper and fan and enjoys sharing her enthusiasm with fellow crafters.

More about Julie:  Julie is a self-proclaimed Craft-a-holic that just loves to craft!!  Her Great Aunt Glady taught her to crochet when she was 5, and she’s had an obsession with making things ever since!! She started scrapbooking in the more modern sense when her son was born in 2001, and has never looked back. She lives near by with her husband of 14 years and their 2 children.  By day, she’s a mild-mannered middle school music teacher, but in the evenings she’s a crafting maniac!

More about Ryan:  Ryan is a New England transplant from California who became a “permanent” resident when fate stepped into her life in the form of Frank, her husband of over 7 years. She is a doting dog-mom to her beautiful boy Shooter, who loves to ham it up on Instagram for his Mama. Ryan has been papercrafting since high school but really started scrapbooking in 2004. She is a Project Manager at one of the area’s top hospitals by day, and a cropper by night. She loves good beer, good food and good company!

More about Wanda: Wanda is a local who loves both scrapbooking and card making! She’s a nurse by day, and loves to relax and spend time with crafty friends on the weekends. Her beautiful grandson and his adventures are her main scrapping focus plus she makes beautiful cards too!! Simple and elegant with beautiful detail…  With her youngest heading to college she’ll have even more time available to crop with us!! How lucky are we?
