Carry-on Pins

     Home may be where the heart is, but sometimes you just want to get away. Whether you travel for a business meeting, a long deserved vacation or just to see some old friends, it's always nice to break the routine of home-life. Being an artist, my custom made lapel pins are one of my carry on-essentials.
If you're anything like me, you always forget something when packing. I can't tell you how many times I've had to re-wear a single pair of socks for a week, or get ready to run down to the hotel pool and realize it's another vacation of swimming in my cargo shorts. That's why it helps when I have my Design Pins attached to my travel bag, that way I never forget them. Not only is it a good way to promote myself abroad, but its also a great conversation starter to break the ice with the person next to me on the plane.
     Whether I'm waiting for a subway in NY or standing in line at a busy cafe in Seattle, anywhere I go I can be sure that people are noticing my art. And the best part is, I don't have to do anything to promote myself except stand in front of somebody and be open to compliments.
