Here’s a way to take all of the bits and pieces you collect when you’re on the road (or you may not, and I’m jealous of you)…See, every time we’re away, I have to take a little piece of where I am, a coaster, a business card, a postcard, a sticker…because in that moment, these small souvenirs feel really important. But then I get home, and they get shoved in an envelope, and go in a drawer. But one year when I was at Cookie, one of the editors wanted to do a project of turning those souvenirs (flat ones anyway) into a laminated placemat. It was such a great idea–now we get to remember our trip over breakfast, on a weekly basis.
