Time for another blog carnival of our SATEAM.
This month's subject is "what do you take with you when you travel".
First of all I take my laptop with me. I am an addict I guess :)
Need to check my emails and my shops or I get withdrawal symptoms.
Most hotels offer internet access one way or the other.
One of my jewelry books has to come along as well, normally
I take it with me in my back pack to distract myself on the plane
and to avoid realizing that I am actually on an air-plane (I hate flying).
A sketch book and a pencil in case inspiration strucks....
I would have already planed for a project I want to do on holiday
and will take the necessary tools and materials with me.
I am not a fan of laying by the pool or on the beach doing nothing
but sun bathing and listening to music. For me that is dead boring.
So I take my silver wire (maybe copper wire this year due to do the
horrendous silver prices), tools and stuff with me to the pool, grab
an umbrella and a cold drink (perhaps a pina colada or mai tai?) and
have the time of my life.
The above necklace I did by the pool in Rhodos, Greece.
It took me a week to do it. It never made it to my Etsy shop,
only in form of my shop banner.
My aunt just had a hip operation then and wasn't feeling too
well. I managed to cheer her up by adding the necklace to her jewelry box.
