Hello! Grace here.
What a week! Never a dull moment anymore, that’s for sure! Maybe that’s just what it’s like in NY though. Always something going on! In the news, or outside of the window. I’m actually off work next week, for the first time this year! And very excited.
We were JUST about to head off to Jamaica for my 30th as lockdown kicked in. And so a break from the city is exactly what we need. We are headed to a secluded lake house in the countryside of Upstate NY (for a week) with a small group of close friends. FREEDOM! FRESH AIR! FRIENDS! I don’t know which one excites me more haha.
So I started packing on Wednesday. Is that a bit premature? We won’t really be doing anything other than hanging out at the house/lake and perhaps some hiking, in an attempt to maintain social distancing. But the lockdown has turned me into a packing obsessive apparently. I need everything! We’re also driving there, so the dangerous thing is that I can technically take as much as I want. No TSA or baggage limits stopping me now!
I usually am a very light packer! But post-quarantine travel-Grace is very different to pre-quarantine travel-Grace. I used to just throw whatever I remembered I needed into a suitcase the day or night before. Now I meticulously pack a little bit more every day in the 5 days leading up to the trip. BECAUSE IT’S FUN. And we’ve not had enough fun recently have we?
I’m also crash dieting in an attempt to catch up, when realizing my ‘summer body’ still thought it was April.
Anyway, enough excited waffle from me. It is funny how now I APPRECIATE being able to pack a suitcase. Before, it was a chore. Now I have a new found happiness in it!
That’s next week though!
Always a good day for me because I get to share your lovely Groovi SHAC creations!
So let’s start with the NEW download for next week! Groovi SHAC #11
This one will be fun! The word delicate comes to mind.
And now for my fave picks of the week! I loved all of your cards this week, the colours, the variations, the details. But I HAVE to choose, so these are my picks!
Talented bunch aren’t you? And it looks like most people already have the lovely Tina plates! They’re some of my faves. Right up my street!
I love Tina’s Henna Corners. Just fabulous! Here’s a photo of the plate used to showcase the different parts that have been used within your cards. Options options!
Enjoy your Friday! I’ll be back tomorrow 🙂
Lotsa Love, Grace xoxo
