"Almost Packed"


Look what I found at Joann's. It is for storing beads but I am going to store my brads in. It was $5.99 It is perfect. Before I used a bunch of baggies. I am almost done packing for this weekend.

These two suitcases and duffel bag are FULL! I am bringing all my punches, lots of stamps, lots of paper, all my inks, stickles, cuttlebug, a bunch of ribbons, embellishments, markers and more. Lets just say that I am bringing every thing but the kitchen sink. Kristine said that she is bringing that since it doesn't look like I can fit that in my bags. LOL

Here is the paper I am bringing. I keep folded cards in a photo storage container all the time so I can just grab one when I need it. For this trip I folded 4 cards of each color and put them in the container. Then in the black paper holder, I have at least 4 full sheets of each color plus all my neutrals. Wait until you see all my stuff unpacked, you will die. But I tell you what, last year I brought the same stuff and I used everything I brought. There is a few of us that are stamping in the hotel room Friday night. I can't wait. I think I have enough for all of us. LOL

So do you have a suitcase large enough for ME? I am so very jealous, I wish we had something like this around here.

I linked yet anoter gift set back to you today, thank you so much for all of your wonderful ideas. My donated gift sets made some great cash for the benefit.

Hey Girl,
Have a great time! What a good idea of keeping various colored card stock already folded and ready to make a card. As simple as that idea is, I never thought of it.

Ah, I figured you must have stayed a night here in the LA area, after driving all that way. I also couldn't figure out why you had packed so much, and then it made sense when you said you and friends were going to stamp in the hotel on Friday night! Our supplies are like a crayon box - you have to have them all because you never know when you might need something! How many people did you drive down with?
