So, when I started sending postcards (as part of a tremendously successful New Year's Resolution) I had someone to share my new found enthusiasm with. I think postcards are swell. You can find them just about everywhere for a reasonable price--even the ones at Yellowstone National Park were only $.50, I think. They are short so you only have time to give the highlights of life or one good deep thought. There is no "pressure" or time commitment to write a big, long letter, but people still know you care about them, are thinking of them, and maybe just a little snapshot of what you've been up to. And postcard stamps are cheaper, too.
Bill recently gave me a few Make-Your-Own Postcards from the Kimac Company out of Connecticut. They have preprinted the writing side of the cards, but they leave the photo side of the card blank for you to design to your liking. It is one giant sticker which allows you to customize your own postcards. You can stick photos from trips creating personal postcards of your vacations. Bill cut out the image from a favored, but tattered t-shirt and used it to send as a card to an old friend. I used a doodle to adorn my postcard. Really, the options are endless.

|That is my very special postcard on the bottom and the remaining scrap of doodle on the top!|
