You probably would now yes. I did have a tiny pair that seemed to get ignored, but I'm not sure where they went when I moved. Now I have a small pair that I pop in my check-in luggage and take out to put in my pencil case when I arrive. Saves any trouble Cheesy

This really makes me want to start a journal. I t would be great to be creative whilst waiting and always having something with you to write in and stick things into. I always say I'm starting a journal, but I never really do. Maybe prepping some pages would help to actually get going.

Quick question... do you not get in trouble trying to take scissors on a plane?
I fly regularly for work within the US, so thought I'd share. I carry safety scissors (the kind kids take to school with rounded ends) in a top pocket of my backpack and get through every time. Once, they fell out of the pocket and to the bottom of the backpack with my other stuff and my bag was searched. The TSA gal said they were fine alone because they could tell what and how big they were.  I also carry a Speedball lino carver (with tips stored in handle) and it is never a problem.

On the other hand, I often pick up rusted metal and junk off the sidewalks and no matter how or where I pack it, my bag gets searched for it.

Last week in New Orleans (MSY) I packed away four small tubes of printing ink, a huge (4+? oz) bottle of acrylic paint and a brayer. They scanned my bag twice (once per long plane) but didn't search it.

Don't know about international travel, besides stricter. Hope this helps.

Even if your family doesn't travel, or you don't go to free concerts or celebration days {we have free concert/celebration days at our local parks}, you can always collect and create a journal out of every day inspiration! Such as drawing, collecting nature-like things, or even just collecting miscellaneous things while you go for a walk around your neighbourhood! I found some interesting bits of metal from a rusted car, and an old blanket left at the park {plus an old sippy cup that my son now uses} -- or you could check your local Craigs list for free items! XD

I have several journals for: sketching stuff, designing clothing/characters, collecting random bits of fabric/paper/photos/advertisements/fashion ads, etc that I enjoy, my personal diary, an inspiration/writing journal, and a separate journal for my travels that I only write in and will later transcribe some parts into a scrapbook; I am going to start a journal just for my son, so I can collect his words as he advances, draw little pictures or keep his drawings, add fabric of favourite and old clothing, photos of family members so he can "remember them" as he grows older, photos of himself, favourite games, etc -- an interactive "Scrapbook" of memories!

I have several different journals going at a time - at least one of them is always more of a "things that amuse me" journal. It's usually mostly clippings from magazines/newspapers/free advertisement post cards. I have several older dictionaries and I go through and clip words that strike my fancy.

I'm going on a huge trip in March - for my 40th I'm going to Orkney, Islands North of Scotland between Hebrides and Shetlands. I've been plotting and planning for several years now and it seems unreal that I'm buying a plane ticket in a couple of weeks and making reservations. So I decided to use the time to prep a journal for both myself and my mother! (My DH abhors travel and mom and I are both similarly laid back.) Mom writes in journals more than she does altered art so I've been covering pages with tissue paper and notebook/graph paper - kinda whatever I have around. I've also put in pockets for all the stuff we'll come across! I opened this post a couple of days ago to jog my memory before I started!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
