Organize Your Stationary & Get A Pen Pal

I'm starting to feel a little more settled in the new house.  Boxes are starting to disappear, which is relief.  I'm really tired of looking at them.  We are still without a lot of furniture since we are leaving our previous house staged, but the good news is: we are under contract!  It won't be too much longer before all the furniture will be moved and the remainder of the boxes will be gone.  I might just throw a party.

My studio has been the last room to get organized.  I've been looking for a few storage pieces, and waiting for the bookshelves from the other house.  I finally took a little time to get a few things unpacked and found them a temporary home.  The first thing to get organized was my stationary.  I love hand written notes.  There are times when I wish I were still in grade school and had a pen pal.  Can adults have pen pals?  Hmm.  When I have the time, I also like to make my own greeting cards with old postcards and calling cards. 
I separated all my vintage cards, homemade envelopes, and recycled pieces by season in this great divider box I found at Patina Green.  I had intentions to use it for something else, but I think it suits this purpose much better.

It's much easier to find what you're looking for when everything is categorized. 
I found this cheese box at an estate sale for 25 cents.  It holds all the stationary I use to make my own greeting cards. 
The sewing drawer, another estate sale find, holds all the other cards I've purchased.
Eventually these will have a better home, but in the meantime, they are out and accessible.  I'm in the mood to send out some snail mail.  If your interested in a one-time pen pal, leave me a note in the comments section with your email address so I can contact you about your address.  No return letter required!
