DIY Travel Diary
Exploration is craved by most of us. We long to travel and see what beauty that the world has to offer. Dreamy thoughts of Rome, Hawaii, and Switzerland keep us up at night. What would it be like to plan a trip to Singapore or the Bahamas? Sigh.
Creating a DIY travel diary and documenting the travels is easier than you think. Of course at Country Craft Creations we have Travel Albums to get you crafting. To get started here are 25 things to include your Travel Album:
Tourist maps & brochures
Paper shopping bags
Flowers, shells, grasses, etc.
Museum, art gallery, movie & theatre tickets
Menus from restaurants and cafes
Flattened bottle caps
A little watercolor painting of something you saw
Drawing or sketches from the kids
Wine/beer/liquor/water bottle labels
Entries of what you did, saw, and felt
Sand from the beach (place in a small plastic or glassine bag)
Money (small coins and denominations of foreign currency)
Rubbings of interesting textures (graves, plaques, etc.)
Pens, flyers, and other promotional materials
Souvenirs, beads, and other do dads
Coffee or beer coasters
Even if you are traveling locally and can’t make a big trip, try making a Day in The Life album of sorts. You can get ideas from the same list above!
Everything changes in no time at all and your great grand babies would love to see what a Day in The Life was like for you. Where did you eat? Where did you go to see the show? What attractions were nearby-- a zoo? A park? Country Craft Creations has all the Travel Paper you ever need.
