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.
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!
