Traveling Tips

I’m not a very organized traveler ……….actually I’m just a lazy traveler. When I pack it has to be simple. This usually means piling similar items all together because having 20 different bags or organizers to keep up with drives me crazy.
So if you’re like me the ‘Tupperware method’ may work well. I take all bath items, medicines, lotions, toothbrushes etc. and pile them into a large Tupperware container. I used to organize these items into individual pouches designed for travel but it was piled in the bottom of the luggage by the end of the trip (and usually leaking onto something). But this method has made it much easier to travel with my family of 4. We just pop the top, dig around and throw it all back in when done. Looks messy but it works great. It’s nice to not have to worry about anything pouring out in a bag somewhere too.

Disney Autograph Pillowcase

We’re currently planning a Disney trip for later in the year and it’s the perfect opportunity to try some of those Pinterest Disney projects I’ve seen floating around. First up was an autograph pillow. Last trip we used the autograph book but it was thrown in a box and never seen again once we made it home. However, the pillow looks like a better idea since it can sit out on a chair or the kid’s beds to enjoy year round.

Wine Cork Holder

Michaels stores carry a wine cork holder shadow box in the photo frame section. Add a bit of gold leaf, fabric in the back and etched glass to make it a one-of-a-kind gift.

  • Gold Leaf and Glue (use as directed)
  • Silhouette Cameo – cut the vinyl, apply to glass then coat in etching cream (follow directions on jar)
  • Spray adhesive to apply a fabric to the backboard of the frame

I’m currently working on relining a train case so look for that post later this month. Sorry again for the slow updates. We are still surrounded by boxes from our move in January and all my craft supplies are in storage. But we’re almost ready to begin construction on our new house and hopefully in a few months I will be back on track with projects.
