Postcards from the Road




Today is my road warrior friend's birthday. I CONVENIENTLY forget how old she is now. Not to spare her, mind you, but because she is the youngest of our little group!

Our little group of Rah's live vicariously through her adventures atop Harley. (Doesn't that sound dirty?!)

She bought a Harley (or two) a year or so ago and travels around...satisfying one goal last year to bike across the US on a wildly short whirlwind of a vacation.

I just love the excitement of knowing that she's out there on a bike, troubles, anxieties, and stresses BEHIND her, kicking up the dust, and avoiding bugs and various other critters flying into her fairing (mouth)! It's a delight to me, who sits most days in front of this computer, making charts for bitter, old, corporate uptights. Oh, oops...I'm starting to sound bitter like them, eh?

As a contribution to her whiles, I created this Post Card Bag, so that when she stops for a bite, dip, nap, or drink (gasp), she has on hand a post card or two that she can send us to give update on her most recent adventure. I tried to keep the overall package small, because she is always short on space for luggage.

Psst...Don't ask her about the underwear....Well, I take that back...Do! (It's hysterical to those of us that hike and have similar issues.)

Anyway, she should be receiving this soon, but late - in my usual fashion. While I finished it Sunday, I just mailed it last night. Ah so...Isn't it grand? I really had fun putting this together. If I ever get a bike (much to my daughter's chagrin) I will definitely make a few of these to tote with me! (Because this laptop WON'T be going...who wants tie-man asking me to update a flow when I'm busy looking cool in my leathers!)

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Oh, guess what else is going on...
