There are a few things in life
that a woman needs while traveling!
For me, it is
a handmade art journal
I was in search of a way to be able to bring with me all of the beautiful colors of paint that I already had, but in small increments so I would pass security in the airport and also have a lightweight carry one.
I also wanted a way to keep the paint organized, allowing visibility of colors as well as a tight seal on the container to prevent the colors from drying out as I have experienced in the past with snap lidded containers meant for acrylic paint.
These cute little plastic containers I found to be perfect. They were in the bead section at Michaels Crafts.
They fit neatly in their own see through plastic lidded box.
I wrote the paint color on some cute heart stickers and labeled the bottom of each individual color.
That's a total of 24 colors!
OK - 48! :)
It is yet to be determined if they dry out quickly or not.
Either way, I was pleased with the convenience and the cuteness of these colorful paint containers.
My trip took me to St. Louis, Missouri
A city filled with beautiful architecture, rich history and honestly some of the best food I have ever eaten. I loved touring the fabulous Victorian homes at Layfayette Square during the Christmas season.
St Louis will forever have my heart!
