If only I could get the theme from Love Boat out of my head...

Holy Moly, you guys - it's tomorrow!

I'm so excited to be embarking on the Crafty Chica Art Cruise! Kathy was kind enough to invite me along, and I'll be podcasting the event in exchange. I'll be recording lots of audio on the ship and editing it together when I get back. Hopefully, you'll be able to listen and feel like you were there!

I'm also hoping to send you some quick updates through the magic of telephone podcasting and Katin's help. But, given the vagaries of cell networks and internet, it's probably wisest to say, "Maybe you'll get some audio postcards from me here on the blog. And maybe you won't." Fingers crossed.


Aside from figuring out what in the world I'm going to wear besides my habitual sweats every day, I've been doing a little pre-cruise crafting. These quilted ATCs are to give out to my fellow cruise-meisters.

(Actually, this is an in-progress shot. I dressed up the backs with some blue glitter.)


I also made this bag to carry my recording gear around the ship. The pattern came from Joan at Lazy Girl Designs, and it's an absolutely genius piece of fabric engineering. I'll be writing more about it when I get back.

I won't have much internet access during the week, so it may take a while for your comments to appear here. I'll be jacked into the Matrix once again on Friday the 16th.

Have a good week!



Sounds like a lot of crafty fun will be had by all. Looking forward to a full report when you get back. Have fun!

This is true - and the ship's cell tower charges about five bucks a minute, so I'll probably try this when I'm on land in Mexico!

Have fun! I hope you can get some signal, it would be fun to hear some updates along the way. I can never get signal on my cell on "out to sea" days. I've often thought a "quilters" cruise would be fun to do, so i'm anxious to hear about this!

bon voyage!

I can't help but envy you. Have fun!

Sounds like a lot of fun - have a great time, Diane! The bag and ATCs are Gorgeous.

I didn't realize it was that kind of a cruise you were going on - now I'm REALLY jealous!

Have a blast

Oh, those ATCs are AMAZING!! I am so jealous, but I'm so glad you are there! Having fun! Give Kathy a kiss for me! She doesn't know me, but what the heck?!

Cute bag! Have fun!

Wow, have a WONDERFUL time! I hope that after i am done with school I can actually do something like this. Heck, I'd be happy just to get together with you and give you the cool xray film I have squirrelled away for you. and get some kombucha starter. :) in the meantime, have FUN!

Sounds fantastic- have a wonderful time. Can't wait to read/hear your posts from the trip.

have a great time!

Congrats on taking the cruise! I will be eagerly waiting for the podcasts. Your latest podcasts have been AMAZING as usual! Much Love!
