Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Find A Way To Carry Something You Make With YouThe other day I was reading a magazine that I had brought with me on the plane and I became aware that I was holding one of the cloth bookmarks I had made in my hand and I was feeling the fabric between my fingers as I was reading.

It made me realize that although I was not in the craft room, I could always carry a little piece of it with me on the road :) I have also started carrying one of my small handmade journals with me as well. I used to carry a plain old spiral notebook, but I find that having my personal, handmade one creates that same feeling of comfort - that sense of being home :) What piece of your art can you carry with you?
