Back in the saddle again

Instead of shopping till I drop I decided to go to a crop with my friend Mel tomorrow.  Yes, I am avoiding the Black Friday mall madness and spending the day using what I already have.  I am also packing up donations for the Purple Heart.  Throwing away the wreckage from Hurricane Sandy has caused me to examine how I spend the resources that the Lord has entrusted to me.

S.A.V.E. 2012

Back from S.A.V.E.  I had pages planned and did not get everything done.  I overpacked again.  So once again I hope I can learn more about myself.   I did not touch my cricut so I will not bring it next year.  I did not use many of my stamps so I will only take stamp sets with me that I have planned.   That goes for inks as well.  Paper and embellishments need to be paiored down as well.  I plan to practice this by going to the monthly Calvary crops only bring one project. If I can get it all packed in one container for a three hour crop then I hope to have a better idea of how to pack for a three day crop. 

What did I get done?  I finished the baby shower book by adding the hospital photos.  I scrapped a two page spread of Gabrielle and Katie at camp, a two page spread of Gabrielle drinking hot chocolate and took two classes. The second project took me nearly all day on Saturday.

 Also Sunday is a complete waste because all I did was pack up which is another reason to pack light next year.

SAVE prep

I am packing for my annual trip. I already started packing my clothes. I like to be comfortable and I need a new pair of slippers. The Hello Kitty slippers have stretched out so baggy that I cannot keep them on my feet. I need to bring lots of eye wettener solution because the dry air heat is brutal. I am in the process of paking my 12x12 bags. I watched a Tim Holtz video of how he packs his supplies. He has some cool looking train cases that he designed. Me, well I favor lock n lock. It seems to work for me. I will upload a photo when I am done.
