Monday make-it

This week I spent a lot of time hanging out with my husband, since I leave here tomorrow. This vacation was a lot of firsts for me

I made these little postcard pockets - hoping to get in on the postcard exchange, but I was too late. I was so sad. Then I got an email from another blogger saying that she was starting one. So happy day for me, I can still use these.

There will be one for each state. I will put the state name on the top then hang these on my board. When the postcards arrive, I will slip them in the pocket. So easy

I used an acetate sheet and added the duct tape to make a pocket. I used a full sheet but cut an inch off the side. So it measured 7 1/2 x 11. You could probably use a sheet protector and just cut it down for the same idea.

If you missed out on the original postcard exchange and would like to join one - contact Lacey Whidden at to sign up. She is a new blogger and is just creating her blog.

  1. I love that flowery duct tape. I've used it for a couple projects this summer!

  2. Super cute!!! I love all the new duct tape that's out!

    I am a new follower and I am nominating your blog for an award! Come over to our blog to pick it up!


  3. I love all of the things you made. You are very lucky to go to Hawaii so often. Being away from your husband is really hard. I've been there.

  4. Where did you get that duct tape? I love it! I was in Hawaii this summer, fell in love with it, so of course that's my room theme this year. I love the design and grpahics of your blog, too. Hilo looked nothing like your postcard when I was there. It was gray and rainy. Glad to find your blog!

    1. At Walmart in Hilo. Hilo is always raining. I think we had 6 days of sun the whole month I was there. Thanks for stopping by.
