The Artful Backpack!

"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was,
"thank you," that would suffice.
-Meister Eckhart
Today begins the Thanksgiving Fantastic Voyage! My family will drive an average of four hours a day for the next five days in our effort to see all the family in their different cities. Whew! So, to express my thank you for this holiday season...I thought I would share the next few days while traveling some artful things I am most thankful for...and it all begins with the "Art Backpack". This backpack is filled with many, many supplies that can create most anything while sitting in the car...on a sofa....around a dining table or at a ballgame! It is stocked, mobile and absolutely fantastic to fill the many idle hours I see in my future. This pack has at least five different sized plastic subdivided containers filled with every type of crafting doo-dad you could possibly imagine. Plastic bags contain an assortment of ribbon, string, thread and tinsel. Plus, I have several plastic accordion folders filled with paper, book covers, ephemera and fabric. Every pocket is filled with every type of tool, cutter, tape and glue. This bag is my mental key to sanity over the next five days. The artful backpack.....sometimes the most unlikely thing...can be one of your most thankful items you own.
