Going on vacation is always a mixed bag of emotions! On one hand you’re excited about your impending trip; what you will do and what you’ll see, but on the other hand you’re thinking about all the work you are putting on hold for when you get back. So while I’m painting my brains out to get ready for a few upcoming craft shows and finishing up a slew of orders that came in while I was on vacation, I thought I would share some advice (don’t roll your eyes, lol)…..
Whenever I go anyplace, I look at it as sort of an adventure. I always have my handy bag full of goodies to create with, and or read, AND I ALWAYS HAVE MY CAMERA. My camera is like an appendage of my body. It’s not just to take pictures of the people I love for a family photo album, it’s a creative tool!
On our last night there, Maggie and I raced from spot to spot trying to capture the last sunset of our trip. It was huge and had the most amazing colors blazing through the sky. I knew I wanted to capture it from one vantage point on top of this hill, but by the time we reached it, the sun had set. I was pretty bummed about it, but still captured the radiating sky that the setting sun had left behind. Oh, well perhaps next year.
Next time you go out of the house, don’t leave without the camera! You never know what you might miss. Let the world around you inspire you!
