A fun little gift idea for people you may not get to see very often, long distance relationships, expats etc are ‘Open When’ letters! They can be as cheap or as expensive as you like because at the end of the day they come from the heart (bleugh I just threw up a little…but it’s true!). The trickiest part is coming up with what to include! I gave some to my mum and sister in England when I moved to America and then in return my mum sent some to me! Hopefully you’ll find these Open When letter ideas helpful!
Bullet journalling, scrapbooking, in the middle of the digital age it’s kinda cool how more people than ever are expressing their creative flair through arts and crafts! Places like Hobby Lobby are dangerous for the artistic type! I’ve only ever managed to complete two scrapbooks…one that I made for my Sister’s birthday full of childhood memories and a second one documenting my road trip along Route 66! I may not be a pro scrapbooker but I’m ridiculously proud of my road trip travel scrapbook! In this post I’ll be showing you some of the things I included and why a road trip makes an awesome theme for a scrapbook!
We’ve always used our Christmas tree as a way to display our memories. Whenever I travel, I try to find my Mum a Christmas decoration as a gift (Travel Souvenirs: Christmas Edition). Now I’m living in America, I’m starting my very own travel/memory tree!
