Traveling and Travel Crafting

Here we go again…another fun trip! We love love traveling and try to go anywhere any chance we get. Joel’s sister-in-law’s parents have lived in Paris for the last few years, and they think this is their last year. We had talked back and forth about trying to get over there before they left, but we had never gotten serious about it. While trying to decide where to take a trip this year, I set up a bunch of fare alerts on Kayak, where they email you if a ticket goes below the price you set. We got a good price for a flight to Madrid, and here we go! We’re going to Madrid and Barcelona in Spain and then on to Beaune and Paris in France. We’re very very excited, and we leave tomorrow!

With a big trip comes things you need (or you think you need). I decided I needed some bag I could carry along that could easily be stowed in my backpack when we get there. I decided I could remake one of the grocery bags I made earlier with some cute fabric. Even with lining it, it went a good bit faster this time.img_0710

Joel then had the interesting idea of making covers for our guidebooks. img_0716Yes, we know we are tourists, and we know it’s obvious, but why shout about it if you don’t have to? 🙂 So, now we at least have cute books.

Ok I’ve really got to pack now! And I have even one more small craft project to do tonight before we can finish packing…
