Pens

Standard

I was really happy to find these few treasures on a stall at our collectors market here in Fakenham. There is a collectors market every Thursday and I often have a walk around and see if anything catches my eye. The dip pens, the vintage rubber stamp and the paper knife were only Β£1 each so I snapped them up of course! πŸ™‚

New storage system

Standard

Over the holidays I decided I wanted to sort my Postcrossing cardsΒ into countries and also make a bigger box for them.

postcrossing-box-1

I re-used a shoe box that had already been re-used once to wrap one of my Christmas presents.

postcrossing-box-2

I made dividers from coloured card and labeled them with the postcrossing codes for each country.

postcrossing-box-3

Here’s my finished box with plenty of room to add more cards πŸ™‚

postcrossing-box-4

I don’t normally have time for such projects, so really enjoyed doing it!
