People are always asking me, “What is the one thing you hate to forget when you go to a crop?”
Now, I know that the “correct” answer would be photos, paper trimmer, adhesive – supply stuff.
For me, however, it is something very different – my hat. At least, a ponytail holder.
I am one of those girls with longer hair who actually hate it. Yeah, it looks pretty and all that jazz, when I take the time to dry it, curl it, spray it… yada yada yada… Most days, however, I don’t have time for that and it is in a ponytail by the time I am home from work.
When I am scrapping, the last thing I want is my hair in my face, bugging me. So, I always make sure to have a ponytail holder at the minimum or the hat.
Now, I have always been a hat girl, even since I was little. Baseball hats, bonnets (yes, I typed bonnet), sun hats… you name it, I love it! The only time I never wear a hat is when my hair is really short, which at times I go crazy and cut it all off. Then, being 6’0″ tall already, a hat makes me look even more like a guy. When it is longer I can pull it off better and will wear it all weekend long!
As I dawn my cap and get ready to head out to my crop tonight all I can say is… when packing your bag for your next crop, make sure to have that one item – a barrette, a clip, a ponytail holder, or whatever your choice is in your bag… you never know when you might want it!
