I decided to use vintage postcards, preferably those that had a message on them.
So the hunt begins. 25 vintage cards --- just go junkin' as my friend Connie would say. I found out it is no small task to find 25 Christmas postcards. After four antique shops we (Ruth and I) found more than I needed of Christmas postcards.
All the postcards come from the early 1900s. Postage was only 1 cent. Handwritten notes. All with their own story.
My Story with "Their" Story
I used mini stamps to put the day on each card..
I didn't like to do it but I hole punched the edge to place in the album. I tried to consider other ways but it always added bulk to the book.
I'm using both "Christmas" theme cards and "religious" theme cards.
I will place a note on the last page about the postcard stories.
I love this idea. My best day numbers I've created!
Family, friends, acquaintances all have a story.
Stories...the story...it's what it's all about.
