I am not one to sit with nothing to do even when flying. And when you are going to have to be in a seat for 5 hours, it's time to scrapbook. I took a tote of things and you can fly with scissors as long as the blades are no longer than 4 inches. Now mind you, first class has a lot more room but who can afford that! The tray table is a little tight but it can be done. It also helps if you are related to the person sitting next to you so you can use their table, lap, etc. Barf bags make the best little bags for trash. You can even stick them on the side of the plane to get them up and out of your way!! I also scrapped during our cruise when my husband was napping but that wasn't near as adventurous than the plane. Also, he didn't snore on the plane!! And I am not a kleptomaniac, but I do tend to remove all of the barf bags within reaching distance on any flight I am on. They are the greatest trash bags for scrapping anywhere. Oh and when you go thru security in Portland, you might have to demonstrate how to use a punch as they wanted to know what that metal thing in my bag was for. So I had to show him. Then he was demonstrating it to the rest of the security people which I am sure the 200 people in line behind me so appreciated.
