It's time!

I official leave in a just a few days and I won't be back for a month (at least!). I'm excited, nervous, restless, happy, crazy.

I hope to have a lot to share with you when I get back. I am officially taking a hiatus here until then. Hope you will be out having adventures too!

Another essential crafting project for travel

I have a feeling that sleeping is going to be interesting. It will take almost a day of flying just to get to our first stop and I'm scoping out a overnight train to get from Marrakech to the ferry to Spain. Then there's the hostels.

I'm hoping these eye masks will help. Sew Mo has a great tutorial and you can whip these babies up in an hour.

Essential crafting project for travel

One of the toughest things to pack for the trip (and yes I've started packing already)! They're bulky, dirty, add weight and take up space in the one backpack I am allowing myself to bring.

Solution - shoe bags! I know, I know you can by them anywhere, but I just can't bring myself to spend $10 on yet another bag. All my little purchases for the trip have been adding up quickly.

Better solution - make a shoe bag! A simple, fun little project and great way to use some extra fabric. Here's the tutorial from Betz White.

My shoe bag with very comfy walking/going out shoes.

Obsessive planning time

I haven't bee crafting much lately. Most days, I come from home work and spend hours on HostelWorld and Lonely Planet working out travel paths and trying to figure out how to get from one place to another without planning too much - I'm working out how to get from Tangier to Barcelona right now...
