Yay! It’s holiday time! And if that means travelling by air or car, then this podcast is for you.

Trying to keep the kids fed, watered, entertained and attending to emergencies on a plane, while trying to enjoy your holiday travels doesn’t need to be daunting.

This is the geekiest packing guide you’ve probably come across, but if you want to be super-organised when you next fly or take a road trip, join me in this weeks’ podcast.

In my podcast I mention the Airpocket Bag (non-affiliate link), by an Australian company.  It’s made our lives even more organised!

Making Mini Travel Watercolour Palettes

In this video, I demonstrate the making of one of my miniature travel watercolour palettes from beginning to end using

  • a plastic pill box
  • empty half pans
  • blu-tac
  • Yupo
  • Daniel Smith Watercolor Sticks

These are easy to carry for sketching on location.  They will also satisfy that compulsive need to have your watercolours on-hand for those creative outbursts of energy, when you just need to splash some paint on paper.

For a complete minimalist sketch kit, add a water brush, sponge, and sketchbook.
