Hello, friends…I hope your week is off to a great start. I’ve been busy preparing for a little trip to Utah. I’ll be there for a couple of days and will share with you whenever I get the go ahead to do so. 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever spoken about this here, but I get very bad anxiety when traveling. I’m not scared of planes crashing nor do I get motion sickness, but there’s just something so scary about flying solo that I can’t explain. I’ve been trying to not get in my head but as the time gets closer, I’m in a bit of a anxious mood.
I know that it’s not logical, so I’m just going to keep taking deep breaths.
But for today, I wanted to share this super easy and sweet little Dollar Store gardening gift idea. I think it makes such a great little gift for a neighbour, or mom etc.
I also painted a little tag to go along with.
HERE is the link to the tag
And created a video to show you how fast and easy I put it together.
I want to know what other little gift ideas you’d like for me to put together and that way I can paint other little tags for you. Well friends that’s all for now. Would you do me a huge favour and say a little prayer for me so I can find peace during my travels? I appreciate it so much.
Thank you for stopping by and I will see you very soon.
check out the website for SOAR which is about fear of flying and anxiety, in general. Tom Bunn, who runs it, is a former pilot and is also a therapist. Separation anxiety is real, and he explains ways to cope. He’s also available for online counseling. Hope this helps!
Actually, google fear of flying, and it will go right to SOAR.
Hi Lucy…..I love all your dollar store gift ideas and I especially love your water color paintings whether they are pictures or gift tags. You are quite the artist! Your painting of the plants on shelves I have on my wall….I framed it and hung it where I can see it every morning as I drink my coffee….it puts a smile on my face. Thank you! And as far as being scared of flying….just know that God is watching over you and taking care of you. You will be safe! Happy travels!
A prayer has been lifted up for you as you begin your travels.
I, too, get travel anxiety. Didn’t use to, but now. . .just a short Road Trip can set it off.
Love this dollar store gardening gift idea.
Our Church holds a Silent Auction every December to raise funds for Missions.
This would make an amazing basket to include in the Winterfest!
Always filled with amazing inspiration @ Craftberry Bush!

Air travel is such a nuisance now that even without a flying phobia it is just plain (plane?) annoying. I used to say when I was traveling between Denver and Kansas City more regularly that I could have got there sooner by stage coach. Just getting some kind of transportation from Boulder to the airport and then back again is a nuisance and expensive. Then there is baggage check-in, then trying to remember if you go through security first or take the tram and then go through security and the security lines…don’t even go there. Leave lots of extra time for everything so you at least won’t be stressed because you think you might miss your flight. Oh, and just remember, you aren’t going any place where you have to speak a foreign language!
Safe travels! ( love my state!) Every thing is so green right now. Tulip fest is in full swing at Thanks giving point! Have fun!
I understand your anxiety, having struggled with it also. I have done so much of it in the last 10 years, it has gotten easier, but I don’t enjoy it! I have found staying hydrated is extremely important for me. 2 years ago I did a 4 week overseas trip that consisted of 16 flights! It got to the point that it was like getting in the car to go down the road! Prayers for you!
