Bay's Travel Blog

I don't travel much any more. Resist!

Time for a new blog?

I was just thinking the other day that since I don't travel much, and because I'm not suffering many travails these days, maybe I should start a new blog. I thought I could name it Bay's Truffle Blog. Every day I could post something delightful and pleasant to think about. But I just don't have time.

We're leaving for vacation this Saturday, and I haven't finished packing. Hey! You in the back! Stop snickering. No, I haven't started packing yet. Y'all know me too well.

Anyway, I made a book this week using Club Scrap's glorious new Cyprus stamps. I could not bring myself to use up a lot of the brand new Cyprus paper, so I used paper scraps from my stash. Pretty, huh? It's an ordinary accordion-fold affair with a ribbon binding.

Probably the weirdest thing I did was to rip the covers off a book I got as junk mail. Cigarette companies still send me premiums. I don't need cigarette premiums any more, because I don't smoke. Any more.

Anyhoo, I hate cutting book board, so I ripped the covers off the junk mail book and covered them with lusciously gorgeous Cyprus paper. I don't know if that's just economical or just brilliant, but at least I didn't have to cut any book board. And -- I have a pretty book for my efforts!

I'm going on vacation without cigarettes! Oh, my gosh, the last time I went on a family vacay, I was still smoking! This'll be different, won't it? I'll be able to traipse all around Charleston without wheezing!
