I'm going to my best friends place on Monday and it's a 5 hour train ride from where I live and I thought I might do my visual journal or this music journal I'm starting, on my way there.

I needed somewhere to put my pens and stuff in so I bought a cardboard box 50% off at the craft store. It looked plain so I reconstructed it and here's what I came up with.


I used scrapbook papers, stickers and rub-ons.

Now I need your help on figuring out what tools I need to bring for my journal.

Don't mess with the pie ho(le)

Its adorable! And ummmm glue, pens/pencils, scissors, (if they're allowed on trains? I have no idea. We don't have trains!) masking tape is ALWAYS good to have on hand ... hrm. Maybe a mini fan to aid any drying?! Cheesy  Something I always carry around is my little box of watercolours and water pen.

OH! And stickers!

.... I want a five hour train ride.  This is entirely your fault.


I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave ho
Look out, lad, a mermaid be waiting for you
In mysterious fathoms below
Summer is finally here again!

What a fun box to carry along with you! I bet you'll get lots of nice comments from other passengers.
Along with the pencils, pens and watercolors, I'd add a small ruler, a glue stick, a small pencil sharpener and an eraser.
Have a great trip!

I also love that you're crafting in preparation for more crafting. You've gotta put your own spin on things and what you've done there is a great way to do so.

Also - trains are awesome and I hope you have a good trip Smiley
