Craft Space Tuesday: Getting ready for Scrapbook Expo!

Happy Craft Space Tuesday!!!!

I'm 9 days out from my 2 day Scrapbook Expo extravaganza!!! And I'm getting more and more excited.  So this weeks post is about how I'm getting ready for this 2 day event!

Well how do you get ready for scrapbook expo? Don't you just show up and shop?

Well to a degree yes. But I have a number of Scrapbook Expo events planed. I also have a friend coming from out of town to join me. So there's some extra planning and organizing required but I also know how I work.

I love going to scrapbook expo. I love looking at all the interesting things that aren't always super accessible to me the rest of the year.  The first year I went to scrapbook expo (when I started this blog!!!) I just went in and shopped. It was probably one of the most overwhelming things I had ever done. It was the first time I had ever been to something like that. As I said I love looking at everything and often get distracted by all the new shiny so because of this I like to come in with a shopping list of sorts. I may get some of the things on the list I may get all of them I may get none of them. It's all flexible. But it helps me stay a little more focused.

The other thing I worked on is a crop packing list! Because this is a 12 hour crop (actually it's more then that) !!!! So I started my packing list.

And that's where I'll leave this post for today. Next week will be all about me packing for the crop!

  1. Crops are so much fun! it is so good that you are organized and planning on what you will need- I always take too much.....

  2. It's good to have a plan... especially since you're flexible with it.

    Have a lot of fun at the crop... and shopping, too!
