I'd love to be able to sing, "All my backs are packed I'm ready to go, " but alas that isn't true. I have clothes and supplies strewn all over the house, little piles of 'must-have-with-me' stuff, mainly my comfort things, like the Aveda Balance Oil that I sniff when I get nervous or my favorite L'Occitane hand cream. I am a real dork like that, I have ritualistic travel needs. Yesterday I made sure my fave soothing/healing meditations were loaded onto my iPhone. Sounds like I'm a bit nuts, huh, but Artfest is such an amazing feast for the senses, I want to be able to fully enjoy the experience. And that means I want to be calm, cool and collected (right....) and hopefully be able to sleep every night. At my age, when I am prone to wandering the house aimlessly at 2 or 3 am, I need all the holistic aid I can muster, tee, hee.
Anyhoo, I did organize and ship my vending stuff, yippee. Here is a pic:
And, for the plane, I have so many projects, reading things, podcasts, etc. Crazy. Lately I've been on a doodle binge of sorts, prompted by my friend Carolyn, who showed me her Foamcore Doodles, done with an Identi-pen. I loved hers so much I had to run right out and get some Identi-pens for myself. They are the ultimate easy doodle pen by the way, two tips, so all you really need to carry is one pen. Here is one I just finished:
have a GREAT time !ReplyDelete

Enjoy, Mary-Beth ! I love that you have packed all you need to make the trip as smooth as possible for yourself. Doodles are meditation in themselves don't you find ?ReplyDelete

Mary Beth, how can we purchase the stencil that makes the effect of rocks? They sold out at Artfest and I really want to get one. I purchased what I could but there are a few that I would like to get. Thanks, GlendaReplyDelete
