I need your help!!! As you all know, I am a card maker, but I work in a Scrapbook Store. We are having a Staff "Crop" on May 9th and I really would love to do more than just pack up a bunch of stuff and bring it home at the end of the night having done nothing.
I am not good at this though. This is why I have conveniently offered to host the Cal-Gals until the end of time. I like having all of my stuff around me. This way I don't have to make any decisions until the card leads me where I need to be.
But this won't work for the Staff Crop!!!
I want to be productive. I want to have fun.
I just have no earthly idea what to pack.
I mean, I know that there are basics... but how do I move on?
I would LOVE to know how you pack for a crop.... do you just take a bunch of stuff and some colours of ink and cardstock and go for it? Do you plan and take only things that go together? Do you work on a specific project? Do you show up and spend your time just staring at your lovely supplies?
Help me out??
Leave a comment on this post with some tips for me to try... and as a reward, I'll draw for some awesome blog candy on May 4th.
Wanna know what the blog candy is?? How about a brand new, unused set of Classic Square Scallop Nestabilities (large)????
Thanks in advance for your help!
EDIT: I should clarify a few things about my dilemma...
*I will be making cards, not layouts
*I can buy while I'm there but I'd rather not
*I know the basics to take (paper trimmer and other tools), but I'm wondering more about how to decide what out of my stash is important
