Quick tip for always being prepaired!

So here is my funny story,
About a month ago, I was on my way out of town to celebrate 2 birthday parties and a house warming party. When I was just about 15 mins. away from the first house, it dawned on me that I had NO gift and better yet NO CARD! I was completely embarrassed more so, because I have a stationery company and didn't have ANY stationery on me or in my car... really Ashley?!?! So after that weekend, I decided that wouldn't happen again, so here is what I did. I put together a box full of stationery: birthday cards, congratulation cards, sympathy cards, wedding cards, bridal shower cards, baby cards, anything I could think of I put into that box. So now I never have to worry if plans come up last minute, I will always be prepared.

(Also, now that people have seen the little box of heaven in my trunk, close friends and family members steal my keys and go shopping in my trunk! So don't tell your secret!)

Such a great idea! I agree with Raining Pearls! Some of your adorable cards for these kinds of occassions in a cute little box to be tucked away in the car would be perfect!

Such a great idea! You should totally create an "emergency gifting kit"! Love it!
