In an easily accessible container (even a Ziploc bag would do or a more eco-friendly choice, a cloth sack), place a stash of cards--I like a combination of handmade + letterpress cards. Add a nice pen, your address book and pretty stamps and you have everything you need to write a quick note in under 5 minutes. Instead of searching all over the house for all 4 items, you'll have them in the same place! This will not only make life easier for you, but it will ensure the likelihood of those notes actually making it out to the mailbox...and that's always a good thing :)
Above are some simple notes I made this week from papers I already had. Initially I thought I didn't have anything that would work, but after some searching around, I happily found a color combination I liked. I'm guessing many of you have some fun supplies roaming about that would be perfect for such a project!
If you need ideas for letterpress cards, make sure you peek at these affordable options.

p.s. you can find good, but inexpensive pens in the Martha Stewart collection for Michaels Arts & Crafts.
