How to Pack for a Crop


I am packed and ready to go to a local crop! It is tradition that my sister holds an all-night crop event at her home. First we head to our independent local Craft Warehouse's annual open house. It is a craft store's Black Friday with games to earn prizes, amazing sales, and make and takes all night long. It officially kicks off the holiday season for us!

Something that I have been talking about with my girlfriends lately has been the need to simplify our lives. The more that we seem to hold on to, the more disorganized we feel. Everywhere there seems to be more "stuff"... more to keep clean. Last year I heard a quote that I can't seem to shake, "Clutter is your procrastination."
