I wanted to quickly give a big shout of thanks to Mary ann from Dispatch from LA blog, She was so kind and helpful in her email giving me tips on my trip to Paris.
Also my friend Veronica who sent me the most helpful and practical email ever!! So fill of advice , I will be printing it out and taking it with me!
Thanks to Roberta for the tip to contact Mary ann too!
I so appreciate all your help!
Just one thing I had to laugh at you Vee, in your comment you said it might not be a good idea to walk around Paris in the shoes I posted yesterday!! Ha ha, I had to laugh!! I spent 8 grueling hours on a hot summer day walking Paris flat!! And I wore flat shoes and my feet hurt!!!
I did Montmarte too with all the gorgeous cobble stones...
Don't worry...I would not walk around for the sole purpose of sightseeing in those shoes! They are for going out like for lunch or dinner!
The other thing I remember is that to have a wee in Paris cost 1 euro! I just remember thinking "This is the most expensive wee I have ever made!" hee hee.
Here is my travel journal I am taking with. I had a lot of fun putting this together.
Putting my itinerary as a keep-sake in this little envelope.
When I get back, I have space for photographs. This Is a transparent pocket sewn onto the page.
love using paper doilies
more envelopes for all those receipts, tickets and memento's!
I have put journal space on most pages and pockets with tags or envelopes with paper inside to journal on.
Another transparency sewn on, with one side left open to slide a photograph into
Got this wonderful secret window idea from Tara Anderson of The pink Couch.
She inspires me all the time! Going to use them for photographs too.
more secret window envelopes, recycle and reuse! Saving the environment one art journal at at a time!! :)
yes, I am addicted to the secret window envelopes! For a change I look forward to my bills arriving in the mail, so I can use the envelopes!! (who would of thought!)
Well that is it! I want to show you my 2009 Paris album too, but another day!
take care! xx
