Another travel day, the second on our trek from San Francisco to Salem, Oregon to see my brother. We took Route 5 and most of the trip was very scenic, like the picture shown yesterday. Tonight we stay in Newberg, a little north of Salem.
A couple of snapshots at the rest area: “Woof Waste” and caged vending machines (?).
I am wondering if the vandals are travelers or, perhaps, the bears!
Project for Today
Didn’t think to take a picture of it, but there was a very cute apron in the gift shop that I almost bought — a brown apron with a black bear on it. One of the new items I want to add to the studio is fabric paints and markers. I painted a tote bag at one of the resort stops and would like to give the kids a variety of items to choose from — apron, tote bag, backpack, etc. So this will be a Kids Krafts Workshop and will be scheduled late June. Cost still to be determined, probably about $10.
Perhaps even the grownups would like to paint their own apron — either to leave on the shelf in the studio or to take home. We will be looking for stencils to use with the paints but we can also transfer designs in other ways. Think about what you want on your apron and look for stencils or clipart.
