Packing, repacking, unpacking, repacking

I don't know how I travel with one suitcase, I really don't. I pack..and repack, and then unpack to another suitcase and repack again. Hate to leave home even if I like where I'm going. Knitting instead of clothes. Drawing implements instead of an extra bra.

A few more "creative every day's" pictures and then a creative story.

Creative Story -

Did you know that if you have cobwebs on your front porch and you take a long stick to get them down you can create a sort of grab all utensil? Take the long stick and knock down one cobweb wrapping the web around the end of the stick. Then do another cobweb. Then try to get some leaves down and lo and behold, the cobweb stick has become a nice sticky cleaning stick that get's everything down from the corners of the porch. I never knew cobwebs were such a good cleaning tool.

Love your ATC's and that bit about the webbed stick is great. But never mind I can live without it. :)

Who cleans cob webs on their porch? Oy, oh you do sorry. Maybe you can patent your find!

Great ATCs...and fun green face too.

As for packing and repacking it's a true art. I can't believe what I narrowed this last trip's worth of clothes down to in my carry on...and still came home with one unworn pair of long pants and socks and such.

I've been enjoying all the wonderful artwork. Creative Every Day is such a good challenge.

And I just had to laugh at the cobweb sticky utensil. How true! :)

Beautiful art! Your cobweb tool is a great one - if and when I clean them I'll try it. I told Martha W. about it. She was wondering why you don't just have the maid do it...

Love the lady with the green face. She is attractive even with green face and purple arms.

I like to accumulate a good number of cobwebs so I'm ahead in my Halloween decorating. Then we schedule the house to be pressure washed on November 1st.

I love the bubbles, they make me feel happy.

Thanks for the tip about cobwebs - I'm sure that some day that will be useful.
Love your sketches, Mim. The green-faced lady reminds me of how I felt when I had my last stomach flu - except I wasn't smiling.

I really do love your bubbles!

About the cleaning stick...isn't that how they spin and collect cotton candy?!

I think you should do an infomercial :D

Those poor spiders!

sukipoet said...
