Oh how I love all the little goodies that go along with letter writing!
So, here is my lapdesk that I am so happy to have found one hot summer day at a yard sale. We were rendezvouing at Fort Union and decided to drive over to a local farmer's yard sale. Our motives were two-fold. On the one hand my family loves sales and on the other hand it was an excuse to enjoy the air-conditioned comfort of the car for a bit. I bought the lapdesk for 5$ and painted it a pretty color green to match my bedroom.
|I added some pretty Brenda Walton stickers to embellish the desktop.|
|Here is the inside full of letter writing goodies including a little address book, a stationery folder full of beautiful papers and some flower pens.|
|A few years ago, Target cleranced out all of their "Shabby Chic" line of stationery 75% off (that was a happy day)! This little box with a pull-out drawer was one of my lucky finds that day and it holds my little cards and notes.|
|Another happy garage sale find is this spiral bound book to keep cards and birthdates in. Each month has a pocket for greeting cards that need to be sent that month.|
|I made this little correspondance record book to keep track of who I have written to and who I have received letters from. Crazy? Yeah, maybe a little.|
|I don't remember HOW I made it, but I know I used some of the stationery I'd bought at Target. I do remember it must've been fun because I made 2 or 3 different little books using all the different stationery.|
