As many of you know, I’m in the process of moving from New Jersey to upstate New York. My studio is packed at this point and all the beads, tools and craft items are packed away in cardboard boxes.
|Boxes full of beads|
I can’t bear the thought of being without crafts for too long so I decided I needed to pack a traveling bag o’crafts!

Before packing up the seed beads, I pulled a few for two new projects using a lampwork cabochon by Sue Kennedy and one of my own stoneware starfish cabs.
|Bead embroidery projects|
I also found these two unfinished turquoise pieces that have been sitting for a loooooooooong time.

In addition to bead projects, I have this cool special edition of Flow magazine. It’s filled with all sorts of fun papercrafts including; stickers, envelopes, paper dolls, scrapbooking, etc…
I just need to toss some scissors and a glue stick in the bag.
|Coloring book and markers|
I’m also taking a coloring book and some fine tip markers with me because sometimes you need to get all zen after unpacking and this is the perfect way to do that.
While packing up the office, I found this unused sketch book. Perfect! I can use this to put down any new bead/pottery/craft ideas I have. My new ceramics studio won’t be ready until early September so I can keep all my ideas in this book.
