August Blog Carnival

This months topic for discussion with the Starving Artists Jewelery team (SATeam) is do you take a computer and/or tools with you when you travel.

This is something I wish I had done recently when I travelled for work - I was in a hotel room with no computer and no projects to work on.  Although it had been a long day travel and meeting wise, as far as the evening it was very young.

So for the future trips I have two objectives - to get a notebook that won't take too much room in my luggage that I can at least log-in to the wi-fi (if it is available) and to prepare a kit for travel.  So what to take in the kit?  I have a smallish loom that I could take it wouldn't take too much room and I could take it as on-board luggage. I will take a simple pattern that I have designed, that way I could loom and edge the piece that evening.

  1. GREAT idea Caron... take stuff with you while on work trips. I might travel for work 1x a year, but it can get pretty boring (unless I'm with some wild and wooly coworkers who like to check out the night life! Last year's trip to Miami was a sleepless trip! LOL).

    That flower pattern you posted up is gorgeous!!! I hope we will be seeing the finishied project soon! :)

  2. I'm impressed that you can finish a loomed piece in an evening!

  3. Yep, a notebook/ laptop is great to have with you. Better than having to read tons of emails when you return home.

  4. That sounds like a good plan for those nights in a hotel room when there's not much to do but watch tv. Unlike packing all the tools, beads, wire and other assorted stuff, a looming project sounds very doable.

    I'm thinking taking jewelry projects on business travel makes way more sense than taking them on vacation.

    Great post!

  5. What a beautiful pattern, Caron!

    I think you should wear a loom on a chain round your neck ;-) More eye candy for us to see!
