Traveling Postcard Kit

reusing stationery box, traveling postcard kitI knew if I was going to keep up with Letter Month, I would have to keep a little mail kit in my bag. I decided to make things simple for myself: I would return proper letters at home but I would write quick, fun postcards when I was out and about. So far it’s working, as I’ve been able to write postcards while waiting for Naoto at the doctor, while waiting to meet friends for coffee, and while waiting for our food to come at a restaurant. If I didn’t carry a little kit, those postcards would have never happened. stamp, ink, postcards, stamps, address bookInside the kit (which is really just the box that held my New Year cards) I have a handful of postcards, pens, stamps, my travel address book, my return address stamp and ink. I could probably drop some stickers or some washi tape in the box, too, but I really just want these postcards to be simple. Write a postcard, stamp it, and drop it in a blue box. Done!

  1. such a great idea to keep yourself on track with the project! i love seeing the mail supplies folks carry with them… i have a little pouch that i always bring with me for ‘mail art on the go’.

      I’m hoping this month prompts me to keep carrying some mail stuff around with me. I got out of the habit a few years ago and now find myself looking at my phone too often during those breaks in my day when I could/should be reading or writing! 🙂

    That’s a really good idea for postcards! I actually have a nice-sized bag that can hold postcards, my planner, pens, and a little bit of washi tape. I take it out when I have free time so I can get things done… it’s very convenient!
