Like Traveling Pants, Only Not Wearable


Late last week I received a large envelope in the mail.  Inside was a notebook.  It was the Traveling Notebook from Chantal Loves Vintage.  Chantal is a wonderfully wacky Brit who, well, loves vintage and blogs about vintage goods, classic movie stars, as well as other things, like her travels to France.  A while back, Chantal got the idea for a notebook that would travel around the world being filled in by bloggers and others.  "Sign me up," I said.  And then the notebook arrived, a blank page waiting just for me.  I'm not going to lie, there was pressure to do something creative and awesome.  Not being a creative, awesome gal, I settled for doing the best I could.  What a surprise -- my page involves yarn and food.  Here's a little peek.


To read more about the Traveling Notebook, check out Chantal's blog.  I can't say for sure, but it might not be too late to get in on the fun.  As for the notebook, I put some traveling pants on that baby, and it's on its way to the east coast of the U.S.  Happy trails, little notebook!

  3. fIRST, of all you are very creative, I mean the stuff you do with yarn, I wish I could do. I dying to learn how to knit! Secondly, this was a cool idea. I love the sense of community that a group of bloggers create. It's why I love to blog myself!

  5. How fun! I agree with the above blogger, you can knit, but you don't think your creative? Oh I would love to be able to make things with yarn (scarves, sweaters, hats, purses). Need I go on??? Lol

  7. Oh, that sounds like an amazing project! I once participated in a traveling scarf that was super fun. There were 12 of us in a group and we all crocheted or knitted a certain amount of inches on a scarf, then we mailed our pieces and you were challenged to add to the scarf piece you received. When it was all done, you received your scarf back. It was pretty cool and I was amazed at what the fellow crafters came up with. :-)
