Now that I have my book assembled, it’s time to figure out what supplies I’m going to bring with me. Things are going to be kept to a minimum so no embellishments and Thickers will be making the trip. I want everything to fit in this beautiful Supplies canvas bag that was a gift from my dear friend Jamaica. It’s the perfect size and keeps me from trying to bring more than I need which is a huge fault of mine.
So what supplies made the cut? Here’s what I consider to be most important in my creative documenting.
-roller date stamp + ink pad
-a few pretty paper clips
-Neocolor water crayons. (some of these were already broken in half during use so I just snapped the remaining ones to fit into the plastic box)
-1 roll of skinny graph washi
-tiny tape roller (found at Micheals in the $1 bin)
-pencil + pencil sharpener
-Frixion pen (a pen that erases completely. what is the this magic?)
-Studio Calico vellum letter stickers.(these are nice and thin and fit nicely in the bag because you never know when you’re going to need to spell out a word using letter stickers)
-a small envelope of flat paper ephemera like tickets and tags.
-Fuji Instax 150 (Jamaica let me borrow hers. At this point, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to invest in one since I already own a Polaroid mini but when she told me you could turn the flash off, that peaked my interest. Now that I’ve tested it out at home, I know I’ve got to have one for myself.)
I also plan to purchase a few supplies during our stay in the PNW as well. I’ve got a few places mapped out on Googlemaps like Moorea Seal in Seattle (there’s a tape there that I need) and Ecru in Portland. Thinking about shopping in these places makes me soooo giddy. Not the clothes or shoes but PAPER and fun things that will fit into a plastic pocket. How many of you can feel me on that?
Any other places I should hit for paper and cool things in?
