God knew I would need a way to carry my art supplies on the road so...
once a month I am privileged to meet with a group of artful women who
inspire me in so many ways andjust a couple of months ago we talked about
how to organize your art supplies for traveling! These two gals... Teri and her
niece Janene brought their traveling bags for show and tell... WOW!
Michelle and I were so inspired... and it was such perfect timing for me with
our camper travels coming up... that we headed straight for Lowe's
after the meeting to buy our own traveling tool art bag. They didn't have any
black ones the right size so we bought these intensely blue bags instead.
Trust me... I would never have bought blue without Michelle's influence...
convincing me that we could paint them and make them so cool!
That night I went over to Michelle's studio... we emptied them of their tools
and even cut out some of the center dividers to give them more room inside.
Whew... it was so nice to at least get the blue covered that first night!!
From then on it's been adding more color layers and bits of trim a little at a
time during spare moments... and I love the pom-poms... so fun... so me!
Michelle gave me this little felt flower she made... love it... thanks sweetie!
I added a vintage brooch on the other side... gotta love the whimsy of it!!
Still not finished... look at all those empty spaces crying out for more arting!
But for now... filled with a perfect selection of my own personal art supplies
and set on top of a turntable for convenience and easy access to all sides...
it was and is the PERFECT TRAVELING ART BAG to go with me wherever I go!!
Thank you Michelle and all the girls from my Art Group who have inspired me
to be creative in ways I normally wouldn't!! You are God's gift to me for sure!
