Taking It On The Road

Taking it on the plane first...and then on the road...I am flying to Seattle to meet up with some of my fabulous mail art pals
and, after exploring and eating our way through Seattle, we are road-tripping to Portland
for a workshop.
We got a "class list" of supplies -- right in the "Back to School" mode!
Here are some of my supplies.....
And here are some more....old checks and foreign currency...This is going to be fun...

FACES
It was suggested we bring some "faces" and I seem to gravitate  towards the vinatge ones..
Here's looking at you, Kid.

Vintage papers and envelopes and papers and stamps.....pas de probleme.

Two little books to record the trip.....it ain't a trip without a travel book....

Some vintage maps and those faces packed in my nice flat, lidded box from Diaso.
I like a plastic box with lid to protect my papers from getting banged up and crushed in my suitcase..

KIT
All the usual suspects....glue sticks, scissors, cutters, double stick tape....
FACES
Once I got started cutting out faces I just couldn't seem to stop.....no matter how I arrange them they always seem to look very cool.

See what I mean? Cool, huh? I can't wait to see what I actually use them for....
Don't you just love collage and art supplies?

Tear and Paste material
I have to pack all this? I don't usually take so many things but then I've never taken a workshop before either....

A tiny bit of show-and-tell material. Brought along a couple of mini zines and a couple of little booklets in case anyone is interested....

Meeting up with a bunch of my mail art friends, going to the MOA (Museum of Artistamps) in Seattle and a reception/opening for a very interesting looking show at
Paper Hammer Gallery
It's Only a Paper Ghost -- intriguing name for a show.
And you know there will be food. And drink. I'll fill you all in later.
