always at the ready


life is a speedway and i always like to have a few things at the ready. among these little luxuries are gift tags. they can make a brown paper lunch sack look posh. i even keep a spool of ribbon, small scissors and gift tags in my glove box. have used them in more emergencies than my emergency flashlight.

so here's a new essential for those of us who bake a thoughtful batch of cookies, deliver them to the new neighbors and slap a scrawled post-it note message with our names and digits. may as well duct tape my business card on top of the tinfoil dome. although it really is the thought that counts, i believe details do too. new tags are hanging out over at the mini mart.

That is a great idea, Min. I would buy the kit as well. Instead I will get some of those little note cards! Cute, cute!

What a cute kit. I have a pretty yellow tin and haven't found a good use for it. This is clever.

Always at the ready is so attractive on your blog. Mine includes a collection of flattened breakfast bars, some old tissue, and lots of pens at the bottom of my purse, with hair & lint & things.
