Scrapbook party etiquette
I am only an occasional scrapbook gal, so I was wondering if those of you with more experience could help me out here. I was invited to a birthday party by a friend. It was her birthday and the party was at her house. She is very much into scrapbooking (sp?) and said that would be the theme of the party and to bring some photos.
Upon arrival we found out we were expected to pay for the priviledge to participate in her party to cover the costs of the 'professional' in attendance. Of course, items were then for sale at the end of the presentation. I have been to those parties before, but am I out of line to have expected the hostess to pick up the tab? Everyone had brough her a present and no one was informed there would be a fee ahead of time. It is certainly not a question of finances, trust me. Am I being too critical?
