Where I Learn a New Word....Hauls
Hello folks, well I survived another Daddy BD, and of course he is very happy he survived another LOL. I wanted to tell you all about a new word in my vocabulary. "HAULS". I have been doing hauls forever, but never realized until recently, that this is a class all of it's own. So this begins my hauls posts. I actually drove into Reno this week 3 times for business and found a Joann's, (yes business). I found these stencils, had to have them.
And then I had to have these black and white napkins. Love black and white anything. And I happen to know someone that is in a journal swap right at this moment and her journal's theme is Black and White and Red All Over. Lotus, are you listening????
Next is this cool cardboard traveling trunk I found at B & N last weekend. It has faux leather handles and straps. For $11.95, I couldn't resist.
And as you can see as soon as I found this, I changed journal bags again. I got all of my portable paper all of my pens, markers, etc in it. It is packed. And I cut from 3 bags to 2 for when I travel and take my journal and supplies with me.
And I just counted this week and realized that I take 58 pens and markers, and 15 water color crayons with me. That of course does not count the tissue tape I have to have now, and my Peerless Water Color Sheets that I can't live without and everything else I think I need. But this is a thin cardboard piece, so I must be careful or the handle might break and then I would cry.
My brother is still here because of Daddy's BD and I know that a great yard sale is going on today and so I am sneaking over there with him and get back here before I have to get on my every Friday Conference Calls, Yuk!
But the good news is.......................No more Truckee!! I packed up and left for the last time (I hope) for awhile. Woo Hoo! But I am going straight into another start up next week, but it is only 40 miles away and at least I can come home each night. No living out of a suitcase again for a while, just a trunk, LOL.
