Hi Everyone! It’s been quite some time since I’ve been able to do a “Behind the Scenes” post. I will be traveling next Sunday, and the software I use is different that in years past, so I will not be able to share any live footage from National. But don’t worry – of course I will be sharing it when I get home!
I have decided to Instagram as much as I can while I’m at convention. I encourage you to follow the podcast there. On your phone in the app, search for @allaboutafricanviolets. If you also use the web browser, here is a link: https://www.instagram.com/allaboutafricanviolets
What does it look like to take the podcast on the road? It starts with my larger suitcase and my camera tripod.
There are things I am donating to fundraisers . . .
And there is a ton of stuff to pack. There are clothes in there somewhere :-D
And I have my “Convention Kit,” that has cotton and tinfoil and scissors, a Sharpie, and plenty of Ziploc bags for those leaves that I know will be coming home with me!
And there is camera gear (I’m frantically looking for the lens cap cover for my lens – I cannot imagine where it’s hiding . . . )
. . . a few hours later . . .
- All the electronics are updated and charged.
- I have a new play list for the trip. The suitcase is packed.
- All the reservoirs are topped off.
- All the houseplants have been given a good watering.
Am I the only person who cleans the house before traveling???
Oh – and I FOUND the lens cap cover :-D
