oh hey.

The LLP shop is still closed for the time being. I’ve decided to make some changes and take some leaps. The shop will reopen next week at my old Etsy location since they now offer instant downloads on digital items. There will also be some new digital prints added as well!

My blog will be moving too (fingers crossed). This is something I’ve put off for awhile now but really needs to be done. So I may be in and out here.

Lastly, I will not be offering a paper pack for the holidays this year. Sadface, I know. But after returning form my trip to Portland and getting inspired not only creatively but business wise, I’ve decided to change a lot in this area. In addition, I’ve had some new opportunities come up that are both exciting and a little scary but it’s a leap for sure and I’m ready for the change.

TGIF, happy weekend and all that jazz!

Travel Journal | Part II

Now that I have my book assembled, it’s time to figure out what supplies I’m going to bring with me. Things are going to be kept to a minimum so no embellishments and Thickers will be making the trip. I want everything to fit in this beautiful Supplies canvas bag that was a gift from my dear friend Jamaica. It’s the perfect size and keeps me from trying to bring more than I need which is a huge fault of mine.

So what supplies made the cut? Here’s what I consider to be most important in my creative documenting.

-roller date stamp + ink pad
-a few pretty paper clips
-brush pen
-waterbrush
-Neocolor water crayons. (some of these were already broken in half during use so I just snapped the remaining ones to fit into the plastic box)
-1 roll of skinny graph washi
-tiny tape roller (found at Micheals in the $1 bin)
-pencil + pencil sharpener
-Frixion pen (a pen that erases completely. what is the this magic?)
-Studio Calico vellum letter stickers.(these are nice and thin and fit nicely in the bag because you never know when you’re going to need to spell out a word using letter stickers)
-a small envelope of flat paper ephemera like tickets and tags.
-Fuji Instax 150 (Jamaica let me borrow hers. At this point, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to invest in one since I already own a Polaroid mini but when she told me you could turn the flash off, that peaked my interest. Now that I’ve tested it out at home, I know I’ve got to have one for myself.)

I also plan to purchase a few supplies during our stay in the PNW as well. I’ve got a few places mapped out on Googlemaps like Moorea Seal in Seattle (there’s a tape there that I need) and Ecru in Portland. Thinking about shopping in these places makes me soooo giddy. Not the clothes or shoes but PAPER and fun things that will fit into a plastic pocket.:)¬†How many of you can feel me on that?

Any other places I should hit for paper and cool things in?
