overpacking, I'm sure.

So, I'm prepping for this weekend.
Will be at the Santa Clara Scrapbook Expo, signed up for Fri's all day crop, a couple of classes Sat then Sat's crop. I've been packing.
and packing.

I'm up to one rolling tote, one huge duffel bag filled with tools, one 'extra' bag with Sat night papers...and another bag filled w/ embellishments (mostly wedding, so that is my Fri bag. I'll also be carrying my purse. I'm trying to keep it down to the 3 (per night) and my purse. Now, on Sat, I'll be able to 'check my bags' during the day. (oops, need to put my name on them)

So what are your non-scrap crop essentials? for me, its a box of kleenex, baby wipes, snacks, pepsi. My cheap MP3 is acting up. sooo, I may be 'music less'.
But that's okay, I rarely take this to a crop. Kinda enjoy the noise of 'creating' around me.

The good thing about taking a couple of days to pack is you're not in a hurry. and if issues crop up, like running out of printer ink, okay, I can take care of that. BUT the bad thing is you think of EVERYthing. this morning at 3 am, I thought of stickles.

Even as I type this, I keep getting up to retrieve something. STOP, okay the next thing I will get is a pad of post its. That way, if I do think a page 'needs' something from home...I'll make myself a post it note, instead.

Okay, when I went to do that, I also grabbed my Scrapbooks Etc Page planners, never know when you'll need inspiration, right? But that's it, really, I'm done packing.

So, ya'll have a good weekend...I'm thinking I will!! If I survive the trip lugging this stuff from the car!!!

You may think I'm crazy, but I can actually go to a crop with ONE BAG. It was hard work, but I've been able to pare it down over the last year!

Have fun!!!
