Sunday School: Letter Writing Box

I don’t know about you, but I have accumulated a ton of letter and postcard writing “things” over the years – things like washi tape, stickers, specialty pens, airmail labels, vintage postage stamps, rubber stamps – you know, all those things that you “need” to have to write letters and postcards.  I have found my desk getting more and more cluttered with these little things, not to mention they are never in the right place at the right time.

Recently, I found this post from shannoneileen and decided to make myself a portable writing “desk”.  It isn’t an original idea.  Letter writing “desks” have been around for over a century ( if you keep a close eye on “The Crown” and “Downton Abbey” you will see the main characters opening their fancy wooden boxes like these when the sit down to write correspondence.

I just so happened to have a wooden wine case that seemed to be the right size.  My husband cut me a piece of PVC pipe to hold my washi tape, and through many tries I was able to fit in several boxes to hold the various accoutrements (a tribute to my tetris days).  I now have a travelling case so I can write postcards at the dining room table, coffee shop, or meetup.
