Desert Island Designs....

I've been thinking....and I have a PLAN building up in my mind and I need your help. I have this shoe box:

and it's empty.

And I'm thinking that I'm going to be stuck on a desert island. I can take any art or fabric supplies I want but they all have to fit into a shoe box. Just a regular shoe box.....

OK, I'm not going to a desert island but my idea is that we often make excuses for not making art - we don't have the right supplies - we don't have the right colour - we don't have time - we don't have this and we don't have that. I am so guilty of that very complaint and I don't really need to be. I have everything, absolutely everything I need to make art. I may not have exactly the right fabric, thread, paper or paint but I can make art with what I have, right now at this very moment!

So I want you to help me fill my shoe box ( I have a plan, but it's a secret for now, shhh!) I want you to tell me what I can take in my shoe box - OMG, this is risky!

Can I take some paint:

A thermofax screen:

Coloured markers:
 A colour wheel:
 Black markers:
 Some frames for editing:

 Please let me take fabric:

 And perhaps a paint box:

So I'd like to hear from you! Over the next month, I'll be assembling the shoe box (and if there's room in it, I'll add a couple things, like needle and thread!)
Then I can tell you about my PLAN! I think it'll be fun and I want you to be part of it! So please let me know what I'm allowed to put into my shoe box for Desert Island Designs.....
