I’m a Happy Camper!

Happy Camper Printable from Mrs. Padilly's TravelsAs of July 2016, over 1,700+ of you have downloaded my Happy Camper printable! That’s a lot of Happy Campers!

This free printable, for your personal use and enjoyment, is my way of saying Thank You for stopping by MrsPadillysTravels.com.

Occasionally, however, readers ask if they can use the image for commercial use; like a request I recently received from Julia, of KlayZ Kreations.

Julia contacted me to ask if she could use my image for one of her soldered charm designs. Intrigued by this request, I visited Julia’s Facebook page, and liked what I saw.

While I typically say no to such requests, I could see myself wearing one of Julia’s necklaces, and gave her permission to use the image under one condition; she make one for me!  🙂

Julia happily agreed, and informed me her soldered necklaces come in two sizes: 1 1/2 inch, and 2 inch squares. Since I’m a Texan, I naturally went for the bigger 2″ size!

I was very excited the day the necklace arrived in the mail, and thrilled with the design and quality of Julia’s work! I will wear it proudly!

Thanks, Julia!

Well, that is exactly what happened when I created my Heirloom Glamping Table to bring on camping trips in my Casita.

A little Padilly background information:

In addition to my passion for the subjects of this blog, I’m also into genealogy, and have lots of vintage family photos, including many of my mother and her family taking road trips out west during the 1940’s. These family photos do a wonderful job of capturing the time period, and all deal with outdoor travel activities.

Then one day it occurred to me, what better way to bring their memory with me on camping adventures than to make a table with all their photos glued on top!
