My local card store has a limited selection of postcards, but they have endless other cool things that are tempting to look at (and purchase) when I go in to browse. I try and refrain from buying things, but sometimes I just can't pass them up. Blue Q makes all sorts of nifty bags, but when I spotted this Air Mail pencil case I had to have it. There is also a larger square zippered bag that I am contemplating buying. Right now I am using this for loose stamps that I take off of parcels and other correspondence that I don't need to keep.
Chronicle Books makes some very eye-catching stationary. I especially like these fold and mail tablets. Each has 40 sheets with five different designs.
I've already got three letters ready to be mailed.
For a quick letter these are perfect. It's only a matter of writing, folding, moistening the flaps and voila, the card is ready to mail. I've also enclosed extra sheets (for longer letters) and a postcard in another, so they are roomier than they look.
Not that they're necessary, these little accessories make letter writing (and hopefully receiving!) all the more fun.
