12:00 PM (Maybe 3:00 pm) Departure
Sunday departure was scheduled for 3:00 pm. I just noticed on my contract that it states 12:00 pm. I've sent an email off to the coordinator to get clarification on the time. Unfortunately the coordinator I've been working with over the past 6 months is no longer with Amish Acres. So I'm having to rework a lot of previously scheduled times. (And the new girl doesn't return emails!)
~Scrapbooking supplies and Photos!! Just remember this important rule: YOU MUST CARRY UPSTAIRS EVERYTHING YOU BRING. So pack wisely!
~Clothing and personal care items
~Desk lamp. We are working in an old barn that has mood lighting rather than task lighting! So if you need to see details I would strongly recommend bringing a desk lamp.
~EXTENSION CORD WITH STRIP PLUG-IN IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you have multiple devices that need electricity then you are going to need these items! This barn was built in the 1870's and evidently they didn't put in adequate electrical. So plan to use an extension cord!
~SMALL extra table. I believe we will have 6 extra tables on hand but if you know you need extra space and you don't want to fight for an extra table, a small side table might he helpful. Not necessary but perhaps helpful? I know some of you like to spread out! But once again...think small 'cause you have to haul it upstairs!
~Music...headphones/earbuds only please. There will be a radio tuned into a general music station but I ask that individual music be kept personal so as not to bother other people.
~Snacks. We are NOT doing a snack table this year! I don't think Amish Acres was too thrilled about a bunch of food sitting around on a table when I mentioned it. But you are more than welcome to bring snacks for your own table to munch on to your hearts content!
~There are loads of activities to do at Amish Acres. If you need a break from scrapbooking you will be able to find plenty to do! The town is only a few blocks away and filled with all kinds of cute shops and unique restaurants. Plus there is a gift shop, museum, coffee shop and ice cream parlor on site at Amish Acres.
That about covers everything. If you have any questions please ask away and I'll do my best to answer! See everyone next week ~ Jinger
