Stuff I Carry Around


This is the stuff I usually carry around with me.  I have a book to read, my journal, a black bag with pens/Sharpies/pencils, some other miscellaneous scissors and stuff.  There is a store catalog request card I am going to turn into an altered postcard.  The bottom right is a couple of mini-books I am putting together.

The M&M bag (from the vending machine) actually was my chocolate fix.  My routine the the candy is day 1 I buy it.  Then day 2 I open and eat about 1/3 of them.  The other 2/3 of the bag either grow legs and are gone or they get eaten over the next 2-3 days.  All I need is a taste of chocolate to make me happy.

If I don’t take this stuff with me, especially to work, I have a panic attack almost.  What will I do?  How will I entertain myself?


  1. Looks like one of my bags that I used to take to work with me .

  2. I take an inordinate amount of stuff to work every day, which I never use, but if I don't have it, I will for sure need it. All related to letters and postcards. It is crazy. But...when I had to spend unexpected time in the hospital a month or so ago, I was very glad I had the bag with me so I could occupy my time rather than worry about what might be wrong with me.

    Thank you for offering to help with Orphaned Postcard Project! I have mail going out to you on Monday :-)

  3. I love this! So do you carry everything in a separate bag, backpack or your purse?

    Lately I've taken to carrying things like this in my favorite knitting bag whenever I leave the farm. Lately my new camera is included. Round that out with my "travel" mindless knitting and I'm ready for anything!


Thanks for commenting. It means a lot.
