Packing for the Close To My Heart 2019 Convention in Provo, UT

And away we go!! I've packed my scrapping stuff and I've packed my clothes. All I need to do is pack my toothbrush and I'm off!!

My video shows you what I'm bringing and how I'm packing it. The only additional thing I need to add is a sweater for those crazy cold convention rooms. Sometimes they are so cold they kick me into hibernation, then I fall asleep!!

So here we go...



I hope I'll see you there. Stop me and let me know!!

Thanks for watching!

Packin' for Scrappin' at the Close To My Heart Convention 2019





What scrapbooking supplies are you bringing to the CTMH 2019 Convention? I've taken the list of recommended supplies to bring and show how I am using one of the CTMH packing bags. Because of the size of the Versamat and my paper trimmer I have to use the larger one. If you have a smaller paper trimmer and chose to leave the Versamat at home, you can use a smaller bag. I've taken the opportunity to mark all my tools with a Sharpie and put my name on them. We will probably be at multi-top tables with a number of our consultant friends. It's easy to mix things up with others who have the same stuff! To "contain"  the small pieces as much as possible, I use see thru plastic bags to put like things together i.e. blocks, ink pads, adhesives, and pencils, scissors, etc. 

I haven't decided what to wear yet. That will come in a week or so. I will be using some of these packing cubes just to keep things separate and more organized. 

Please feel free to leave a comment.

Thanks for coming by!
