Bigger concerns

What’s up, our one follower?! (Just joking Michelle- even though at this time you are the only person officially following this blog, i’m convinced that hundreds dozens a few people are secretly following it, checking back daily... wondering when the next post will be...)  Well wait no longer!  Here it is!  
Only 3 months till we depart!  Well at least theoretically at this point.  Our flights are in the hands of our travel agent, although i have not heard back from her for 10 days.  Am i  a bit concerned? Yes.  Have i tried to contact her without hearing back? Yes.  Is there something else that was causing me to toss and turn at nights? Yes.  
I know! Some of you may be thinking “whoa-there-what-now?  What about booking flights? (most of you), What about Spiders in Australia? (Michelle), What about getting eaten by sharks while scuba diving? (my Mom), What about the most immediate concern of moving out of your place? (Alison)”.  Believe me.  In the world of Caryn, crafting and being creative are legitimate concerns.
But fear not!  I have solved this problem, and you may even benefit from it!  Postcards!  I plan to take some colourful pens, addresses, and these really fun stickers that i bought on ETSY.  Since i enjoy pictures here they are:

(note: i did not take these pictures.  While i would love to take credit for the perfect hand pose and having smiley face cookies on hand, i cannot.  They are from the etsy posting.)
At some point i will ask for addresses.  Not now though... I'm off to call our travel agent again!!


  1. Yea, I was wondering if that was your picture - I thought "Caryn doesn't write with her left hand...and that doesn't look like her writing - she must be hand stealing!" Then I kept reading... Just remember you only have 30lbs on the cheap flights (it adds up far too quickly) and airlines are starting to catch on about checking how heavy a carry-on is. You will find stuff in other countries you'll want to buy! Don't overpack and take it all!!

  2. I am loving the postcards! So glad you can still be creative! I'm looking forward to your updates on the trip. You are so lucky and I so wish I could join you! :)
