Leadership Survival Kit

Well Leadership is just one more day away and I’m here in Houston ready to go. I flew in yesterday and spent the day with my sister and husband before heading out the door early this morning. Today starts the festivities and yippie today is a full day of Shoebox Swaps and Stamping!

I’m so excited to be at Leadership this year and the fact that I made it out of Atlanta without any weather problems. (It was a nippy 9 degrees out with a pretty hefty wind, but it could have been much worse.) I spoke to quite of few delayed flyers from this past weekend’s weather.

Well today’s project is one that I made for my roomie, Kathleen. I wanted to make something special from my friend and came up with this little survival kit for her using the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper from the NEW Occasions Catalog. I just love the bold patterns and colors you find in this package of paper.

My little survival kit includes some of the essentials I thought anyone would need, notice the chocolate, which of course is definitely essential to any event!

Here are some of the items that I included. First a notepad and pen for jotting down great tips and project ideas.

A little package of Kleenex.

Post it Notes because who can’t use them – right? Just take a look at my catalog – LOL.

Hand sanitizer because we’re doing a lot with our hands. Chap stick because we’re talking and sharing a lot.

A clip to hold all those extra things that are loose in our new Leadership bags and finally tags for the Leadership bag which will all look alike when we’re all together during the next few days.
