I made two handbags as gifts for my friend Nola and her daughter when I vist LA this week. Packing has started, always so difficult when traveling from one climate to another. I am always sure I am packing the wrong things . Journals packed as well as various "stuff" to embellish the journal as I travel. I found a little set of coloured pencils to use they are about 2" tall and have a small traveling box which should be useful for some drawing and colouring . We have lots planned for my trip , a flea market isit, vintage paper show, Renior exhibit, and the Surface Artist Design meeting. Two more sleeps to go!
