I have to show you something…
(I will share this finished layout later… it is done, just gotta take pics of the final product!)
This is all I took to my mom’s this weekend to crop with. Am I NUTS??????? Yes, but that is a whole other post… Anyway… I have never, ever packed this light for a crop. It was freeing. I pre-planned pictures and paper in the paper bag. Loaded the bigger embellishments into new, smaller 12×12 Creative Options container that I just got (still has locking action, however, so I am in love…). Then, grabbed the tackle box with the paint, stickles, flowers, buttons, and more, and hit the road with camera in hand! I cropped some pics I brought and some I took while I was there.
It was really nice to walk in, sit down, and have a space to work. The boys played and watched a movie, I talked with mom, dad, and Matt, and just really enjoyed playing and working and hanging out at home while being creative at the same time. It was also nice to know that mom had all the major tools that I would need – paper trimmer, corner rounder, scissors, etc… and so that was less to pack. It was a lot of fun and the only thing I really regretted not bringing was my own pens.
While this minimalism will probably not be the norm, it sure was nice this trip. Thanks, Mom, for letting me encroach on your space!
