I have a vacation coming up later this week so I’m frantically searching for some travel entertainment. I like to “over pack” these things because you know when you only bring one magazine, that’s the time your flight gets delayed for 8 hours. My plan is to have one book, one movie, and one craft project. I figure I have my bases covered that way.
Did you read Gone Girl? Were you as distrubed as I was? This is the same author. It might be a little disturbing for a vacation but I’m pretty sure it will hook me if it’s anything like Gone Girl.
Anna Karenina is one of my favorite books (it’s like I have a thing for dark, twisted, and tragic stories, eh?). I wanted to see this when it came out in theaters but it didn’t get rave reviews. Now is my chance. Even if it sucks, I’ll probably fall asleep on the plane (red eye – yea).
The craft project:
I found this little precious on Pinterest long ago and thought it would be perfect travel project inspiration. Usually I take some sort of knitting with me on flights but that always means lugging around a few balls of yarn and some unweildy needles and sometimes poking the eye out of that kid who won’t shut up next to me. This could be safer. This is from You Go Girl. Her embroidery doodles are so stinkin’ adorable! I’m going to attempt some sort of circular sampler that will not look nearly as darling as this.
Next week I have something utterly beautiful to show you. I’m squealing right now just thinking about it! 🙂
