Each of my sisters and I have a keepsake from our childhood that I have always treasured. My parents had the brilliant idea to get us a postcard from the places we visited growing up and clip them together in a flip book. It’s the smartest way to scrapbook without even having to scrapbook. I am super curious how this idea originated. Mom? Dad? Comment on this post so I can hear how such a good idea bloomed without the help of pinterest. (Dad, I will explain pinterest at a later time) Do you have any other thoughts or memories about it?
I also have a few pages from postcards my dad sent while he was on business trips.
I love having his handwriting.
Anyway, I have started flip books for the girls. When on a vacation we stop at a souvenir shop (or gas station) and let the girls pick out their own card.
We only have 3 postcards in each book so far but I can’t wait to see them grow.
I also decided to add a handful of memories from each place on the back of each card.
Thanks mom and dad for a great idea! And, look how thick my childhood book is!!! I hope we can do as good a job as you did traveling the country with our family.
