Crafting on the go!

Hi friends! Last year after I got back from the Heirloom stamp show I completely unpacked my travel art bag. So many things had been accumulated over the years and some stuff I never used. I always stick duplicates in that bag or things I wanted to use up but it was time for a thorough clean out and that’s what I did.


That bag set empty on my shelf until yesterday when I went to pack up stuff to bring this year. I told my friends that I would bring coloring tools to share with everyone so that’s why my marker selection is a bit excessive but I hope this helps you decide what you might want to bring on a craft retreat. Also, I totally forgot to open the flat skinny pocket on the front where I keep my portable paper trimmer and I added a roll of double-sided tape after I stopped filming. If you noticed I forgot an important item be sure to let me know in the comments. Thanks!

OK, what did I forget? Let me know in the comments below! If you are going to the Heirloom Stamp Show this weekend please say “Hi” if you see me! The BEST thing about crafting conventions is the wonderful people you meet! I am so looking forward to this trip. Now I have to pack my non-crafty stuff LOL! I have my priorities. 🙂 Happy crafting!

  1. What did you forget? Hmm. Well, you have the double-sided tape but I didn’t see any glue. Also no stamps? Maybe see you at the show!

    • Hope so, the stamp situation will be rectified there:)


      • Ha, of course it will. Didn’t even think of that, lol. Sometimes I do end up buying more “supplies” than stamps. Just got my ticket today. Hoping to get out of work early tomorrow so I can go a little both days.


  2. Could use some embellishments. I’ll bring some and a pick me up ‘pen’ ,some Tombow multi mono liquid pens, and a Tacky Glue pen, and Diamond Glaze.

  5. You have inspired me to bring all sorts of supplies. Wish I had a bag like yours as it would limit what I bring. I find myself grabbing just one more thing, which leads to something else that will work perfectly with everything else. Good thing I’m not flying. Hope to see you there. Tried to say hi last year, but just couldn’t get up the courage.


  6. Scissors!


  7. So organized! We have been traveling a lot and I have been bringing “subsets” of my supplies. So glad I did! You did mention double sided tape, but no wet glue. That comes in handy! I was going to say don’t forget your trading cards but then you remembered at the end. Have fun at the show! I have never done one but it is on my list!
