Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
I hope everyone has been enjoying the sun this weekend! I had my first Pimms of 2013 this lunch time and it was glorious. I wore sunglasses and everything.
I’ve been back from Japan for about a week now and I already miss it. I had such a fantastic time, with lots of exploring, walking, eating and craft shopping. Check out this basket of goodies from the wonderful Wrapple in Tokyo:
As I’m still fresh from my travels I thought I would share my new favourite way to document my adventures on the go. I’ve done a lot of travelling and I’ve never been amazing at keeping up to date with a travel diary. Whilst I love writing, sometimes there just isn’t the time and I often put pressure on myself to make it all sound great. So this time I decided to talk a different approach. I bought one of those small sketch books you can buy in art supply stores (I got mine from Cass Art). I then used it like a mini scrapbook/diary/sketchbook by writing my thoughts, drawing things I’d seen and sticking in anything that caught my attention or reminded me of something I liked.
As it was so small and light I could carry it everywhere with me and update it on the tube, in a coffee shop or even mid-walk. I even kept my own dictionary in the back of phrases I found useful. And best of all the blank cover meant I could customise it however I wanted! Naturally I went for a washi tape/doily combo. I think I must have bought about 20 rolls.
I enjoyed flicking through it this afternoon and touching up some of my drawings. I think it’s the perfect size for a two week jaunt.
