It’s been a busy little week, not least because I’ve been obsessively packing things for, err, about 2 weeks! Being dyslexic, I know I have the short term memory of your average flea… ooooh, shiny! (Sorry, couldn’t resist ;o) ) Anywho, over the years I’ve tried everything, from writing huge lists, to e-mailing myself reminders of things, to post its, to massive piles of
crap really useful stuff in the hall. These days if I’m at home, I start gathering stuff as far in advance as possible, so that should something else pop into my mind, I just add it to the pile. It does make living here something of an assault course, but hey, I figure I’m keeping us fit too :oD So anyway, in amongst the gathering of the luggage, I’ve knocked out a few projects.
Finishes This Week:
Secret Project #1, which started off as:
Secret Project #2, which, I’m afraid, is a complete secret for another couple of months
Boxy pouch first aid kit, with the gorgeous Heather Ross camper vans from Spoonflower:
In Progress This Week:
Sat nav cosy – from the same Heather Ross
Boot tidy, from this little lot (what, you didn’t think my boot tidy would have boots? :oD ):
To Be Worked On This Week:
Sat nav cosy
Whatever hand project leaps into my hand when I’m lounging in the sun :oD
Hope you all had a great week, linking up, as ever, to:
If I start packing too early I get all complacent and forget the most basic things, so it is last minute always for me!
Mind you don't trip over .. oh sorry! Too late!
I love a list! I pop them up on the fridge and constantly add to it, and then lose the list and still forget to put things in the case!
Can't wait to see the boot tidy!!
I like to do one marathon packing session, because otherwise I forget what I've already packed. Looks like some yummy projects in there.
I have lists, lists and more lists! I feel a bit grown up now as I have a note book rather than scraps of paper, so I can even find old lists . . . until I lose the note books
I collect stuff for while before a trip and it ends up on the guest room bed but I actually pack about 30 minutes before Im leaving…slack I know, but I hate the actual packing part.
Totally get the "oh shiny" vibe you have going on…
You're car is going to look so awesome with all that homemade stuff in it!!
I'm so intrigued by the idea of a boot tidy. The stuff in my boot that needs tidied is big stuff like an atlas, dog cage & water bowl , wellies, and umbrellas and such like.
I am not sure what a boot tidy is, maybe because i have trouble with the word tidy… I just shove my boots in the cupboard.
Love the HR fabric – brings back campervan memories
There is nothing like being prepared. Is not that the scouts moto. I love the boot material.
I wanna seeeeeeee the secrets!!!!!
I hear you on the getting ready thing. We had had piles laying around now for weeks.
