      Do you prefer to scrapbook alone or with other?

      The introvert in me likes to scrap alone. It's the only way I can get anything done. When I'm with others I get major scrappers block.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

        I am at my best when alone for sure. However, I do enjoy the camraderie and exchange of ideas when scrapping with others. I get together twice a year with some close friends and then there is Swirly Camp which was a blast!

          I enjoy both. I get more done alone but it is more fun to be with other scrappers.

            I enjoy both. Depending on my mojo, I can get a lot done either way.

                I do my best work alone. I usually have a few projects going at a time. When I'm at a crop or camp, I feel like I have to finish one project before moving on to the next one because there is no space to let my project sit somewhere so I can keep looking at it to make changes.

                I do enjoy going to crops sometimes though, but it's more about spending time with my friends. 🙂

                  I enjoy both, too! I love scrapping with my sister at her house. I wish we lived closer. I also love the retreats that we go on. Being around other scrappers gets my mojo going. But, to be honest, I get more done scrapping at home alone.

                    I nearly always do mine alone ( or rather with my daughter doing something crafty at the same time in the same room) I sometimes go to a monthly crop and scrap with my Mum when I visit her, too infrequently.

                      I guess it depends.
                      I confess to being far more distracted when I'm with others, but I love the chatting and the exchange of ideas and even the non scrapping time.
                      Alone, I can stay focused once I start on a project, so I suppose that I get more accomplished and that is satisfying, just not as much fun…

                        I love to be among others, to see them scrap. Obviously I can't get anything done because I love to watch their creative process. And ….. I make to big of a mess, when I'm working on a project. I need a whole room to get anything done. LOL.

                          I went to a crop several years ago. People had to use huge luggage carts to haul all their supplies. That didn't look fun to me, so I have mostly scrapped alone at home to have access to all my crafty goodies. If I ever get to a Swirly retreat, I'm just going to sit there and watch!

                            I haven't been to a lot of scrap retreats but I do enjoy it when I go, I love to see how others work, chatting and how you can bounce off ideas with others. But most of the time I'm doing it at home on my own.

                              I have to say I like both, but I can't really get anything done with others. I work better alone, and I make mess with paint and mists and stamping!

                                Luggage carts??? You should see how we pack for Camp!!!
                                That's my new challenge: to pack a lot more lightly. 🙂
