If you’ve been here a while, you know I LOVE to travel. It doesn’t really even matter where- in my home state, across the country, North America, Europe.. well, I just love to go and see this beautiful earth of ours! Last October I took my first honest-to-goodness trip to Europe (Italy) to visit our AFS daughter and celebrate her 18th birthday. And then in November we went to Hawaii. But now… I’m heading down under to Australia! This will be my first visit to the Southern Hemisphere and I can scarcely even believe it.
I’m going to have 2-3 days on my own and am really looking forward to taking in the sights and perhaps even do some crafty field-tripping with Michelle Brown of MixedMediaArt.com, so I’m looking into revising my Travel Crafting Kit. While this one did the trick a few years ago, I’m looking to pair down since it’s such a long international flight.
I’m thinking of doing some mixed-media memory keeping on the go…so I need some doodling/drawing/painting options. Here’s what I’m taking!
To get *you* inspired, I’ve started a little round-up here- and I’m including sewing, drawing, and painting kits- because I might take a sewing kit, too!
PS– If you’d like to follow me on my journeys, make sure you follow me on Instagram, where I post candid shots that usually don’t make it here on the blog, and/or on Facebook where I share SOME of my travel pics and cool links. I guess you could say that my Instagram is more personal and part of my daily life, whereas Facebook is more of my crafty interests only. You choose the adventure.
