Making do ...
I needed to send our Grandson who was in College, a birthday present and a card, and did not have either on hand.
He prefers some handmade something over the $5.00 Hallmark card and of course ... $$$$.
So I wrote a check and made an envelope to mail it in.
I opened up a business size envelope ... laid it out on one of Mr. Z's new Texas maps covering all the places that were important to the Grandson right now and cut out an envelope.
I use a quarter for the size and circled each location.
Glued the tabs together ... added a paper label ... a stamp and off it went.
Kingsville, Texas where he was attending Texas A.& M. Kingsville.
Kerrville and Ingram, Texas where he calls home.
Uvalde, Texas where he is on the weekends, working and managing a game ranch.
Now that he has graduated, he can circle San Antonio, Texas which is the large yellow spot at the top of the envelope. This is where he is working and living and he still works in Uvalde.
He liked the envelope so much, it took him awhile to decide how to open it and not damage it.
He loves handmade things and this was special to him.
He plans to frame it.
Thanks for your visit.
