I can’t remember the last time I had to pack for a month away from home! But it’s happening…On Monday, June 2, I am headed out for four weeks on the#PaperTrail adventure! My 1976 trailer, Scotty, is loaded up with crafty goodness and vintage suitcases full of inspirational samples. I will be visiting twelve independent craft stores and teaching classes featuring my licensed craft products: Sizzix dies, Clearsnap inks and CraffitiDirect stamps. You will be seeing it all- a snapshot of life on the road because I will be blogging and keeping you updated on social media. So I hope you will follow the #PaperTrail with me on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
There are a few reasons I want to share this adventure with you… but one of them is… quite honestly, I am a little nervous about it all, and I sure would feel better to know that I had some friends riding along with me. Please feel free to grab a button and post it on your blog or Facebook and invite your friends to follow along as well- the more the merrier. All are welcome!
Here’s the map of where I am headed. You can click on the red pins and that will show you the name of the event and location- I love Google Maps!

And Tuesday evening… an evening with my friend, CardMonkey Jarvis, and friends. Looking forward to meeting up with Ellen’s crafty group and sharing tips and techniques on die cutting. We’ll be making tiny suitcases in honor of Scotty’s journey.

Meeting up with my sister to see what we can find! I’ll be staying overnight with Kathy- she and my mom recovered the cushions in the camper for me back in March. You can read about that here. Kathy has a gorgeous little sewing cottage so I will get post some pics for you to drool over.

Will anyone else be going to this? Let’s plan to meet up! Gather at the camper and enjoy a cold beverage and then head in to the latest goodies for sale! Contact me at 703-283-2012. Catherine Matthews-Scanlon is on board! Who else wants in?
EDIT: Change in plan. The class at KeptCreations did not fill up. I am staying in Shokan with my sister for an extra day and heading to W. Springfield to the Stamp Show on Sunday since I don’t have class. You have to be flexible!
