packing up…

hi bloggers… hope your week is going well so far.  we’ve been busy as usual around the studio getting everything packed up and ready to hit the road for our workshops next weekend at beautiful impressions.  it’s my first store visit of the year and i’m excited to be teaching with the new products from cha.  there is so much that’s involved in traveling and teaching since we prep everything in our kits and of course ship every supply the students will ever need in the workshops.  we start out with lots of cutting, scoring, drilling, punching, counting, and then of course putting it all together.  my system for sorting embellishments is sometimes a logistical challenge especially if i’m only using certain pieces since like everyone else, i have to order everything packaged.  unfortunately nothing comes bulk as all of my idea-ology items are manufactured as “sets” to keep costs down.  i think i have it down to a science though with my high-tech bucket system (lol), and it challenges me to use all of the components throughout my different workshops…

then it’s on to the packing which mario is the expert in for sure.  every project gets kitted with full instructions, sorted by workshop, and any additional supplies are labeled and shipped.  we ship in these industrial plastic bins which is more efficient and we get use out of them for all of our events (they last us years this way)…

so it’s back to work to get everything ready to ship today.  i’ve spent the last couple of days finishing up the project samples and taking photos for my workshops.  i’ll be sharing photos of the projects tomorrow on the blog – enjoy today…t!m
