Here’s what I must have with me anywhere I go – the essentials: wallet, phone, chap stick, lotion, small notebook and pencil – to write the grocery list or sketch an idea for an illustration. The little notebook is a Midori style journal that I made for myself out of leather. I cut down regular paper and fold it for my pages – endless refills ; ) The pencil holder, that I just got from Midori, is perfect for keeping my pencil safe in my bag. The Beekman lip balm was a gift from my mother-in-law and I love it! The hand cream from Crabtree and Evelyn was a gift from a friend (and I got another free sample from a recent trip to their outlet store)! The lotion and chap stick are something I use often in this cold/dry climate!
What do you have to have with you? What are the essentials in your bag?
