This Summer I've decided to cut down a bit on my work schedule while the girls are home from school. I plan to do two things in particular....spend quality time with the girls and spend more time working on some "just for fun" projects for me.
One of the projects that I'm particularly excited about is Maggie Holmes' Pieces of Me workshop that's currently offered at 2Peas. It's theme is centered around creating a mini album that is all about YOU. Little bits and pieces about who you are and what you love. I sat down this morning and wrote two full pages of things I want to include in my album. There is a kit that 2Peas is offering to go along with the workshop but I opted to design my own using items from my shop. I offered some of my kits up in the shop (sold out now) and you can see the details and fun inspiration photos in this post. Here's what my main kit looks like:
Here's some of the supplies I've added to my main kit. Spray mists from October Afternoon and Studio Calico. I want to experiment with my supplies and see what fun techniques I can try. Big splatters and masking is on the list.
And that's a wrap. I tucked everything in my basket and it's ready to go. I took some time last night and watched all of Maggie's videos and looked all the albums from the class contributors. Way to represent, girls! Awesome class and I highly suggest it if you're looking to do a little something for "just you".
Note: I've several emails for requests to re-stock my Summer Cottage Kit. I'm sorry but I just don't have the albums, etc to recreate full kits. But if you look at the top photo of today's post or go to my original post about my kit, you'll see that there are tons of items from my shop that are available as individual items. You could easily stock up on tags, etc and make up your own kit in no time.
I'm hoping to report my progress if it's something you'll be interested in. Just let me know by leaving a comment....let me know if you're taking on this project, how you planned your album, what you plan to include. I'd love to hear from you.
In shop news:
Thank you for the Washi love, I'm ordering new rolls with every batch but if there's some in particular that you'd like a repeat of just let me know. Also, look for a brand new batch of sacks coming soon. I am fresh out of everything and have had lots of requests. You got it!
Have a great day everyone!
