I am preparing for a big event this week, Inspired '09, in Charlotte, NC for a few days of creativity and girlfriendship. And as I gather my supplies for each of the 6 classes we will be taking, I decided to separate the supplies and tools by each class into Ziploc baggies.
I'm relieved that I have duplicates of certain items as I do not want to have to carry everything with me at once. On Day 1, I will carry 3 classes-worth of supplies and tools and the same on Day 2. And if I do not have what I need, thank goodness I will be with my friends. We play well together and always share.
My past experience with craft / scrapbooking events is to dress comfortably and bring an apron. And in my effort to pack light, I decided not to bring my Canon 20D, rather I will carry a portable Canon point & shoot to try and catch some memorable moments with our long distance friends.
I hope to find an opportunity to visit a furniture shop or two along the way. How can we visit North Carolina and not partake in some window shopping of casegoods and accessories for the home?
And the crafter in us must visit places not available in our neck of the woods like Hobby Lobby and Sonic.
It's the little things that mean a lot. I'm happy to have my best friend along who enjoys it as much as I do.
We are ready to be Inspired.
