Postcards for Christmas!


When was the last time you received a postcard? And I mean a real one!

Yesterday I got one. And I saw it just now. Mom left it at my beside table and since I was in bed the whole time due to hay fever I missed it yesterday.

I am so happy! I usually get one from a friend in LA but this time it's from an old friend. She wrote there - "...sometimes the real thing feels better. " So very true. I'm technology passionate but somehow a part of me still enjoys some old stuff...such as the traditional snail mail...and printed postcards.

So this morning I'm trying to make some quick searches and see if there are any good postcards I can order and send to friends. I found one site which offers printed postcards and they're customizable! Yes you can upload your own design...print your own text using their different layouts.

This discovery is making me so excited for the coming Christmas. I always love sending gifts to friends but let's face it, it's just quite hard to send gifts to friends and acquaintances across the globe...but sending printed postcards is just...fun and thoughtful, in my opinion.

This weekend I'm going to work with the IT Guy on several photos and design for our printed postcards...I hope to send hundreds of it this coming Christmas. We still have enough time, right?

I think this is a wonderful idea. The main thing about Christmas greetings should be "I'm thinking of you" and this sounds just right!
