this is such an awesome idea – one of our designers is heading to the sled island music and film festival in calgary, which takes place june 30 – july 3. to prepare for her trip she is compiling all sorts of information in a little composition book that she brought over to show us the other day -  it’s amazing! she cut out and pasted images and hand wrote information about the festival lineup, bars, restaurants and shopping in calgary – even interviews with calgary designers that she has printed out!

i think it’s such a creative way to prepare for and then document a trip – in fact it has inspired us to do something similar for bonnaroo :) we’ll take a closer look at the contents of her journal when the festival approaches, but for now i wanted to share the idea because i thought it was so cool. and all you need is a journal, scissors and glue sticks!

courtney -May 22, 2010, 6:56PM
Thanks for the suggestion! Definitely will try check them out! :)

Calgary is a very cool town, with the best shopping in Alberta! While you are there make sure you check out Kensington area! It has some really neat stores and you must make a stop at "Crave" cupcakes bakery located in the Kengsington area! Also, 17th Ave. has some really neat clothing stores and the best shoe store called "Gravity Pope!" Enjoy your stay!
