And the winner is

The Queen herself. I listed all the names from my comments and cornered a plumber to pick one. That part may have been a mistake, because now he wants to know about my alter ego. Mark drew Vallen's name, so one of my little Georgia birdies will be flying off to her house.

Is the suitcase at the top not wonderful? (Image from an older Country Home) I carry a bag with me at all times with a portable project, but occasionally I would like to sit down and create away from home. I am thinking this idea could be adapted for that purpose. Maybe for ATC creations, note cards or collage projects.

Now what would I need?

Scissors
glue stick
ribbon, string, fibers.
scraps
card stock
images
stamps/inks.
watercolors or acrylics.
needle
sequins/beads/buttons
papers
pens/pencils/crayons
sketch book
ruler
miscellaneous embellishments

I think I could easily get all this in a suitcase. Throw this in the truck for road trips. And since I travel a fair amount for work, and I have outgrown the party crowd, this will give me something to do in the early hours and evening hours. I adore this idea and have had this image and others like it in my clipping files for a long time. Even cooler - I already have a suitcase - thrifted years ago and full of fabric right now.

Perfect for a slightly more detailed time of creation.

What would you take with you?

Have a wonderful day.

I have that same image in a folder. I have been trying to clean out my magazines - so I rip out anything I like and throw the rest of it away. I love this idea!! If I ever get arounds to this, I think I would keep miscellaneous scraps in it (paper, fabric, ribbons, etc). Stuff that you just can't throw away because it could make something really cute if you get the right inspiration. Then when you are away from home you will be "forced" to be creative and use them up!

P.S. I received my CIP package yesterday! Thank you so much! The bird is adorable!!
