Journal 52, Week 21: Top 10 List

Chelle asked us to make a list of the top ten things (any ten things) for Week 21 of Journal 52.  This one really stumped me because I saw the prompt while I was at my friend Kathy's, but didn't have a chance to work on it.  This morning it hit me what my list had to be, as I traveled to my next destination.

These are a few of the things I had/have in my Memorial Day Art Go Bag.  My first stop this weekend, which started last Thursday morning, was a trip to my friend Kathy's.  My art go bag was packed to visit her and sew, sew, sew scrappy journal covers after she helped me cut (and/or tear) them to size.

In the background are my handmade shimmering mists I used on ATCs and the background of this used file folder.  I packed lots and lots of fabric.

And although I didn't take my own sewing machine, I used my friend Kathy's.  The base looks very much like this one in the stamp, too.

I took lots and lots of trims.  I wasn't sure which ones I would need, so I packed many.

I had a pattern of what the completed scrappy journal covers should look like.

I wanted to check out my friend's rubber stamps in case mine weren't appropriate for the final ATC I needed to finish by Wednesday.

Of course, I took a few of my own stamps, too, like the ones I used for this week's prompt number.

I had a sewing needle that I knew would be appropriate for sewing paper to paper.  Of course, I broke it right off the bat!  I covered the sharp end with glue.  To round out the list, I have ribbons and a Krylon Silver Leafing pen.

You now have a good idea what I worked on while I was at Kathy's.  I'm now elsewhere, so you'll have to wait for photos of the weekend.  I want to thank my other friend who prefers to remain nameless for allowing me to use her scanner.  Although I didn't include them as part of the list, I also used one of my file folders for the background and had visions in my head of the trouble mischief Bleubeard and Squiggles were/are getting into while I'm gone. 

Sorry I can't visit those of you who have graciously visited me, but I will be by as soon as I return home on Tuesday afternoon or early evening.
