I love to travel

But it’s hard to leave Chesty for so long. He’s always so clingy when he sees the suitcase come out and he didn’t leave my side all day yesterday.

I quickly ran out to get the mail this morning before leaving for the airport and there were lots of goodies for me. I had the camera packed so I used the phone to snap some photos to share.

First up is an Airport Art Binder from Sio. It is so beautiful, this photo doesn’t do it justice at all. I know it may seem greedy of me but I love all 3 that I’ve received. Gail’s is with me on this trip, Marilyn’s is up in my sewing room for jotting notes and drafting layouts, and Sio’s will stay by my chair and travel with me when I go work at the library or coffee shop.

You need to visit Sio’s blog, she’s been making more binders and she’s up to something!

I also had 2 postcards waiting. This one from my sister Ann. It’s so cute! The hearts are embroidered and there are tiny paper flowers attached with beads.
And last but certainly not least, a postcard from Suzanne from our MQResource swap. I’m not sure of the title of the fable, but it’s about an astronomer who fell into a well because he was only looking up at the stars. Very cute!

Since Keith brought me to the airport before work, I still have a couple hours to kill. I’m in the NWA lounge and am going to work on some layouts for my class while I wait.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
