envelopes full of good things

from the papermaven!

before we headed out to new york, my mom sent me something that made my traveling life a whole lot easier. she made an envelope pocket FULL of ideas of nyc places to visit and things to try that she had been collecting over the past couple of months (maybe years!). man, did it ever come in handy. not only for all the research she had done beforehand, but also for a sturdy envelope with labeled pockets to carry things in. on the plane ride there, it held cd's, cards, photos, flight and train information without getting lost or damaged. and while we were there, i used it to carry all the postcards and business cards we'd pick up along the way. brilliant! thanks mom!
