Packing Techniques

Hello there! I am on a different computer today, so I don’t have any of my photos. In fact, I am visiting relatives in a different state. When I was packing, I watched Meghan Rosette‘s video on packing on YouTube. I thought that her idea of sealing each outfit in gallon-sized Ziploc bags was worth a try, and sealed each of my 10 outfits in bags, squeezing the air out. I had a very small suitcase and if I hadn’t done that, I would have had to use a different case. I would really recommend watching her video on packing if you are going on a trip, and all of her videos for inspiration and if you want to learn how to do makeup, hair, or just have a little extra time to fill. That’s all for this post because I don’t have any of my pictures!! So go check out Meghan Rosette’s channel on YouTube.

Remember me??

I haven’t posted in forever (or at least it seems like it) and still have no photos to post yet. I promise, when everything settles down, I will upload pictures of birthday cake, baked macaroni and cheese, quinoa salad, and desserts! I have photos of it all.

One day, I went garage sale hunting with my aunt, uncle, and one of my cousins. It was hard to find some sales that hadn’t been closed already because it was so hot out. Anyway, we found a couple. At the last one, I bought a Chinese bamboo plate I plan on Mod-podging, a pack of unused, unopened hair curlers, and a 1/2(?) inch curling iron. I disinfected the curling iron and cleaned it completely, and it works great. My cousin bought a letter opener, and my aunt and uncle bought juice glasses and books. At the end, the woman in charge sold us everything for $3.00. End thoughts: I LOVE garage sales.

In our new house, I have been doing some major work on my room that is post-worthy. I also have a handful of crafty ideas (lanterns, decorating light switch plate, crepe paper flower decorations, etc.), that I still have to work on. I will post more about this later when I have photos.

The one quote I can think of that is useful for this time in my life is ‘Keep Calm and Carry On.”
