|(I get to deliver these little surprises in person.....and I can't post this until they are given out so when you read this post, I will be happily ensconced in PDX already.)|
|Don't you love planning a trip?|
That is all part of the fun.....and I have been looking forward to this trip to Portland for months...
|I am prepared -- I collected lots of .25 cent vintage Portland postcards at the Vintage Paper Fair last time I went -- so let the postcard writing begin!|
|I have a nice little map of the metro and it goes right to the airport....|
|OK, I do have a PDX map but I am horrible at reading maps, I admit it....|
Luckily there is a whole mail art posse and they are meeting me and showing me around...
And, there's Lyft.
|Always pack a coffee kit......I am dangerous without coffee as soon as I wake up....|
|If I paid as much attention to packing clothes in suitcase as I did in bringing things for show & tell and little surprises for my pals, I might look better...|
the clothes are always a bit of an afterthought. After art supplies.
|I certainly do have lots of wonderful zippered pouches to store things in, thanks to a certain, wonderful pal who knows who she is.......|
