Challenge #45

Posted by The Design Experiment on 12:36 AM
Hi Experimenters!

Hope you all are having a wonderful spring! We're back this week with a fun experiment. Natural disasters or fires can happen at any moments notice. This week we'd like you to explore what you would do should this happen, what would you take with you. This week's experiment is:

If you had 15 minutes to evacuate my home before it was to be destroyed by a hurricane, what 10 things would you grab. (not including people or pets)

Ladies, you have 2 weeks to tell us what you would do in case of emergency.

This week we are joined by our fantabulous Guest Designer, Ashley Wren.

A little bit about Ashley:

Ashley Wren is a mommy of three children that have a first name, two middle names, a last name, but go by a nickname.
Ashley Wren likes self help books. (Pretty much anything Oprah tells her to read.)

Ashley Wren really thinks that she should be given the opportunity to work for Saturday Night Live.
Ashley Wren loves coffee - especially with English Almond
Toffee creamer and three Equals. Ashley Wren clips coupons and always forgets to use them.
Ashley Wren wants to learn how to sew - so that she can make her children quilts.
Ashley Wren loves to write - and always wanted to be a children's author.
Ashley Wren loves anything with lemon or lime.
Ashley Wren loves quality over quantity.
Ashley Wren loves the TV show The United States of Tara.

Ashley Wren is really trying to come up with a new way to write a bio that isn't boring or self indulgent.

Thank you Ashley for joining us this week and inspiring us with your project.

Question Mini Album
By Ashley Wren


Here are my things 1-10 (in no particular order):

1) A family scrapbook.
2) My most liked girl trophy from 5th grade. (because no one would ever believe me)
3) A Bakugan for Jude.
4) My phone that makes me feel like a teenager.
5) My camera.
6) My iTouch. (it's so scrumptious!)
7) Big Plastic photobox w/ printed photos, negatives and CD's with images.
8) A bottle of nail polish for Marley-Jane.
9) A homemade quilt from my mother.
10) A Power Ranger for Bing.

Ashley says:

I took a serious and lighthearted approach to this. While I know that a Bakugan, nail polish, and a Power Ranger could be replaced - I still think of the things that are so important to my children right now - and what would make them feel better that I saved.

15 Minutes
By Glenda


If I had 15 minutes to save 10 objects from my house I would save
- picture CD's
- memory sticks
- scrapbooks
- my purse
- my jewelry
- personal files
- heritage photos
- art journals
- camera
- as many art supplies as possible & mom's paintings!

By Amy


If I had 15 minutes to evacuate my house, what would I grab to take with me? As I looked around my house, these few things brought me wonderful memories-my statue from Aunt Doris, the kids' hand prints, matt's football player, my angel, and of course, my wedding rings. These are irreplaceable.

Remember This
By Mia


I don't know how lucid I'd be if I had to evacuate my house. But if I did, I would pick up these 10 things. Now, I just have to remember to gather these things. In case of emergency or disaster, don't forget to bring the following things!

1) My purse, which has my wallet.
2) My cellphone!
3) LAPTOP!!! Can't live w/o this!
4) External HD
5) My baby pillow. I've had this since childhood & no way I'm leaving it.
6) My photo boxes
7) IPOD, gotta have my music.
8) A rare framed photo of me & my Dad.
9) My jewelry & my pairs of Blahnik & Valentino shoes.
10) My scrapbooking tools and as much scrapbooking kits I can get my hands on!
