Weekword: Camping

I really battled with this one. I am just not a camping kind of girl. Best to be honest about it, I think.

For other participants, see Nickey's blog (and check out her beautiful illustration!)

I know I know! Camping is for hippies! I used to love camping- I used to be a hippie! Love your illustration SO much- another one I am printing and putting up in front of my eyes. Great!
I don't like girl shoes...

That's funny! I would like it more if my tent was (were?) bigger! I like your illustration too-and the new banner.

I'm with you - I like my comfort too much - and as for getting up in the middle of the night and having to wander off to find the toilets - oh no!!

HAHAHA... love love love this. Well, I have to say My Idea of Roughing It is having a single on the ground floor of a hotel and no complimentary breakfast.

Love this piece you've done and using that pink to get the idea across is fantastic.

love this collage! despite the fact that i love camping too :)

i grew up with road trips and camping, it's in my genes... as long as it's not too hot, too cold, to hard on the ground, too noisy, or too wet. didn't do it for a while though, don't like to do it with little kids either. but i still love it.

Lady P said...

cool new banner there girl - is this what you did instead of braving the wilds of a campground this weekend?

Sarah said...

I just left a comment but it is not there-oh dear. I do like camping-I feel I have to defend it now in the face of all these camping phobes! I love waking up virtually in the open air. I do still want a bigger tent though!
I did make the birds-I was not sure where I was going with them but I quite like them. I want to paint some of them on the white side and make some more with eyes-they look more real somehow. We did eat the mushrooms-another omelette!

Ha, ha - LOVE this. I once spotted a bag in BigBlue with an image of a 50's style diva and the slogan: "I'm so happy I'm not camping". I should have bought it.

i'm not a camper. my husband is less of a camper. i always say, the only stars he sleeps under are 5stars.

camping is best when remembered: if it wasn't great it's at least a good story. It was wonderful - it turns into an even better memory....

I like camping!
