A little something about us

Hi everyone.  My name is Faith Witzel and I LOVE to scrapbook.  I've had that bug for about 15 years now, but about five years ago I thought it would be great to start hosting crops and retreats, thus the birth of Crop-Paper-Scissors.  I wanted to have a place where crafters of all different genres would have a place to gather, learn, create, share, and make new friends.  It has been a wonderful experience and I have been so blessed to have met so many great people.  We have had many multi-day retreats in the past, from the mountains of Tennessee to the beaches of South Carolina.  We're planning on scheduling day crops and more retreats in various different venues.  Marilyn and I strive to put on the BEST retreats ever, and can't wait to have you join us to play!!

I am a former Stampin' Up! demonstrator, where my love for paper-crafting grew from scrapbooking to include card-making.  I live in Hendersonville, NC with my  wonderful husband and two border terriers.   My husband is the best, because he indulges me to enjoy myself and do whatever makes me happy (well, within reason!! lol)  I also have two sons, daughter-in-laws, four granddaughters and two great grandsons.  Our family keeps growing, and I love it!

Hi, I'm Marilyn Peek and I live in Candler, NC.  I have 3 children:  Chuck, Shelly and Brendan, and six grandchildren.  I have had and still have many hobbies, including hunting and fishing.  But I fell in love with scrapbooking and card-making after meeting Faith at a monthly card-making club.  After my husband passed away I became very active in the Mustang Club and traveled the country assisting with Saleen Mustang exhibits.  Currently I am retired from the VA Hospital as an administrative assistant and now  the Executive Director for a nonprofit group at our local VA Hospital

All this to say, when I met Faith and she hooked me on scrapbooking with all her enthusiasm and love for the hobby, I couldn't settle for attending her wonderful events, we have now partnered our talents to put on the best events ever.
