Today my husband is having surgery, and I remember how incredibly BORED and UNDER PREPARED I was the last time he had a surgery......Sooooo, I spent a few hours preparing some scrapbook/card projects to work on during the wait. Hopefully you all saw the Advent Calendar from The Scrap Yard Chicks that I posted a few days ago. I also bought another kit from them, in preparation of the upcoming surgery.
I did all the cutting and laid all the pieces out that go with each page. (Using separate plastic bags for each set of pages with their embellishments.) I made a list of tools and inks I would need, and it is all neatly packed in my rolling tote, hospital bound. (Hope I didn't forget anything!) I also ended up prepping 16 cards. Yes, 16! I made sure all the pieces were cut for each card, then slipped them inside of the card base, and into each envelope. Voila! Instant project in a package! I even remembered to add an extra roll of ATG adhesive....I think I may need it!
Here's to hoping all that prep didn't go to waste (and, of course, that the surgery goes well!)! I guess we'll see if I actually have the time to work on things....I know my mother-in-law will be there too. I warned her I was bringing projects. ~Hoppy Crafting
