packing my bags

packing my bags, originally uploaded by ebbandflo_pomomama.

Today's portable crafting kit is set up in my Art Bin, a plastic case which opens completely to holds enough wire, beads and tools for a day away from the studio. Even though my Wee Guy is in school and I no longer need to leave the house on playdates, excursions etc. I still have some outside commitments to take me away from the bench.
... and some of those commitments can leave me with idel hands unless I plan appropriately.
There's nothing worse than having a huge mile-long to do list and being idle away from the materials needed to complete it.

(I'll be in the at Port Moody Art Centre if anyone wants to pop in for a chat - a good time to start that early Christmas gift buying too!)

leaf collecting "Happy Thanksgiving"

It's the season for leaf collecting. Tiny little maple leaves get blown to the ground. Some I press for use in later craft projects and some are stuck to an old plastic tin lid with vaseline then 'painted' with my prepared art clay slurry. Once a few layers have been applied they can be stored carefully until I'm ready to build up the depth of art clay silver needed before firing. I'll probably start this in time for Canada Day.

Not so much portable crafting as postponed crafting I suppose :)
