OK, i've really got A LOT of stamping stuff. How am I ever going to decide what to take to mom's? I think I'll be forced to whittle my choices down a bit more, some things will have to go in storage. It's the cardstock and 6x6 paper pads that are bogging me down. I already plan on taking: my Copics, all my dies and embossing folders, cuttlebug, silhouette, sewing machine, ribbon, stickles/misters/EP, Prisma pencils, tools...ok, can probably live without all the big punches. It's just narrowing down the cardstock...don't need it all, but how to decide? The 6x6 pads will be more difficult but I suppose I could start by separating out Valentine's day and Christmas pads for now. I don't need to take all my inks, my mom has some and I've been using MFT over SU! Ink lately so there aren't as many to move. Now that I think of it, what about all my embellishments? How do I know what I might want to use? Oi vay.
Jacq, don't take anything your mom might already have. And I wouldn't take any 6x6 pads or patterned paper that are more than a few months old. Odds are, you'll choose the newer stuff over the older stuff when you want to make stuff. And I would go through the dies and Cuttlebug folders, too, and weed out the ones you don't use often or at all. I have a set of apple nestabilities, for example, and I would pack those because I've only used them a couple times. Cardstock really is the hardest, but maybe take just your MFT cardstock and not all your SU or other brands? Think of it as a summer-long limited supply challenge!
