When I travel I love to buy postcards and send them to our family. When we were in Mexico, I even got Hubby to send a postcard to his parents.
While I am fairly consistent about sending postcards from abroad, I’ve never really thought about sending postcards from home. In all of my places of residence (Ohio, South Carolina, New York, and California), I’ve never once sent Mom and Dad a postcard from my hometown. So I’ve decided to break that trend now that we are in Oklahoma and bring a global habit home with me.
Unfortunately in the suburbs of Oklahoma City, postcards are not easily found so I had to make my own. With a stack of Oklahoma brochures I picked up at our hotel from when we first arrived, some blank cards, scissors, and clear packing tape, I made some notes worthy of my new city.
You are a mind reader! I’m writing a blog around the theme of forgiveness, using postcards as a vehicle for exploring what you would say! Jinx on me, I owe you a Coke!
I do home-made cards and thing that this is an awesome idea to make you think and really enjoy what you have in your own backyard.
Thanks for checking out the hometown cards! I loved your post on summer vacation and look forward to reading more!
This is a great idea! I’ll have to try it when I’m back in the States. I suppose I could even send homemade postcards from abroad, as well, although I’ll need to use up the postcards I bought first…
Thanks for checking out my post! Definitely stock up on extra brochures in case you want to make some later. Safe travels!
