these boots!

despite the fact that it is 80+ degrees over here, I decided my most wonderful red boots were needed to make this journey with me! they travel so well- I neglected to take their picture on the flight, where they were kicked-off under my Quantas row 73 seat D for just shy of 17 hours, but here they are in the before, and present moments! cheers and Sunday smiles world! Here we go waxy down under; T minus nothing! Were here :) in love. trish

Going to Australia~Today!

TODAY! I am leaving today. 6 weeks down under. Wow. It's today.

'There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.' Beverly Ails

I hope to see all the sights yet go further as well: Maybe glimpsing what not every tourist sees, and experiencing what not every travels discovers.
Part way through the romp I'll spend a few days with my brother and sister in law. Days I expect to indulge in much more native and much less run across.
But mostly I hope to be indulging in time with Australian encaustic enthusiasts. I can not quite believe that I get to make this trip to indulge in a whole new culture of creative hearts anticipating time in the wax! 

I cross the pond and loose an entire day to jump full-bore into inspiring; bring it on Australia! I want to give it all~
And hopefully, take some back to the states to share in exchange-goodness knows I've brought enough room for shopping :) in love. trish
