Marengo Holiday Housewalk 2010

This past weekend marked the 19th Annual Holiday Housewalk in Marengo, IL. Artisians from the local community have the opportunity to display their holiday wares and are placed in various locations throughout the Marengo area. A map provides a snapshot of where the locations are and how to get to them — some areas afford a walk through the neighborhood to get to the next stop, some locations require a short ride to get to. Some of the Victorian home owners open their doors and invite the public to view the beauty of a day gone by and artisians are placed in each home. Several businesses, churches and other organizations also do the same. All total, this year’s event offered over 60 artisians — all offering a beautiful selection of things to buy.


Holiday Bazaar

On December. 8th, Scrapping on the Spot participated in a Holiday Bazaar at the Valley Lo Towers in Glenview, IL. The bazaar was held in the Club Room facility and was comprised of several vendors who were extended an exclusive invitation. We had hand-crafted gift boxes, hand-crafted soaps made by Home Spa and a variety of explosion books. It was a pleasure to speak to the residents, tell them about our event scrapbooking service and enjoy the holiday cheer.



McHenry Chamber Scramble November 2010

If someone were to tell you they went to a “Scramble,” what would you think it was?  A new breakfast cafe?  A rummage sale where you had to madly reach for something before someone else did?  A corn maze where you had to frantically find your way through people and corn stalks?

The Scramble we attended on Friday, Nov. 5th, is a networking luncheon event that the McHenry County Chamber of Commerce holds twice a year.  You find yourself meeting and networking with people at every turn and you scramble from one table to another throughout this progressive lunch.  While at each table, you have only but a few minutes to tell everyone you’re seated with who you are and what benefits your company offers to them.  It’s a fantastic way to meet people and find out more about the businesses within your own community.  


Cody’s Farm

This year’s Marengo Autumn Drive had nine farms participating and we were privileged to have been at Cody’s Farm to meet all the attendees.
