WOYWW, Working on my Traveling Tote

Today I am working on something I have been planning on doing for the last month or so.
I have my Day Planner, Smash book and journals... and a whole lot of mess ;)
I usually work on my books while Wayne and I watch television. He likes for me to be with him, so encourages me to bring my supplies up from my craft room.
So instead of running up and down the stairs, and getting Wayne to pause the movie we are watching...I decided to put together a supply kit I can keep in the living room so I don't have to leave all the time and so it doesn't look like I trashed my living room, lol.
Plus we go to the cottage almost every weekend, so with this all put together it will be so much easier for me to grab my travel kit and head out the door.
Wish me luck in condensing 3 project supplies into one tote :)

I just realized that it is Wednesday, so I can share my desk on Julia's blog for her "What's on Your Workdesk" post :)
Mind you this is my dining room table and not my actual craft desk.

Onto My Day:
I did my hour long walk.
Then Ashley came home for lunch.
Kristy took her college class exam, as yesterday when I brought her there, the teacher wasn't there. He phoned me today to tell me it was his error as he sh1t sherlock. She was there on time, waited for 45 minutes and phoned him and emailed her other teacher as she waited for him.
So the teacher set up the exam, at her high school. she took her exam and figures she did very well on it :)
After school I took Kristy and her friend Allison for ice-cream.
It has been a tradition with me to take my daughters out for ice-cream at the end of the school year. Since my other daughters have been out of school for a few years, that  just leaves Kristy left, so we have taken her friend Allison with us for the last few years :)
Spent a good part of the day putting a video together for my Traveling tote. Hopefully I can share that tomorrow :)

I hope you all have had a creative Wednesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Your supplies tote looks good. Can't wait to watch your video on your tote. Wishing Kristy lots of good luck on her exams. =)

  2. Hope your reorganizing plans are going well. I always I hoped I had high enough grades somI didn't have to write exams at the end of the year.

    1. Now it doesn't matter how high your grade is, everyone has to write the exam.

  3. I will go for icecream with you as well! ;0) it looks like a craft table to me! ;0) great ideato put together an easy to pack kit.

  4. Love the idea of a travel kit, I need that as Im always up and down the

  5. Great idea! I love traveling totes but have been banned from owning one since I fell down the stairs while "bumping" mine down step by step...somehow it got away from me (too heavy I guess) and pulled me forward head over heels...double summersault later and one head impacted the wall and then the floor...picture sort of standing on head as I crashed...teeeheee...yep...banned from touching one again!!!

    I have two tool totes (one for the lake) and smaller travel bins wheels though...sigh! Dh does all the fetching and carrying...he is not taking any chances on injury reoccurances!!!

  6. Good idea. Good luck with the sorting and fitting out. Oh ice cream...okay, who doesn't love ice cream! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #3

  7. Love this idea - have tried it myself and am rubbish at anticipating my own needs, so I will watch wth interest to see if you can put together the perfect 'to go' supply bag!

  8. I didn't realize you putting into ONE tote! Lol! I thought maybe a couple! That's crazy about Kristy's teacher!

  9. Can't wait to see your go to tote! Have fun organising:-)

  10. Looking forward to see the video on your Travelling Tote :D

  11. That's such a great idea! I used to have that problem when my stash was in my bedroom, but now that my desk is in the family room, I'm right there anyway!

  12. Love the idea of a traveling tote!
    I need something like that sometimes I feel like watching a movie or one of my tv shows while I scrapbook. Especially at night after the kids are sleeping.

  13. Hopefully you won't forget anything you need. I wouldn't know where to start for packing craft supplies. LOL. Brigita #147

  14. I have a travelling supplies tote, its the best thing I have ever done. Sometimes I can sit around for hours at work twiddling my thumbs and get paid for it, so now I sit and do something constructive. Good luck packing your tote, you seem to be an organized person.

    Happy WOYWW Belated greetings.

  15. Tracy! I am planning on doing this very same thing for the very same reason! My craft space is in our spare bedroom, so it's upstairs. I was trying to work on my PL last night at the dining room table, and had to keep running upstairs to get this or that. I was thinking I needed a tote (any excuse to go to Michael's right?), and bam... here's your post! Great minds! I even have the little photo boxes. Thanks for sharing!

    Have a great weekend!


  16. I can't wait to see your tote and how you condensed all of it!

    Your ice cream tradition is very sweet!

    That stinks that the teacher didn't show up! Not cool teacher!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
