Include Note in Framed Art

When I was reframing a picture from my grandmother's attic, I came across an old magazine from 1917 that was used in the backing of the print. This gave me an idea. Now when I frame my craft projects, I enclose a magazine or newspaper (the front page would probably be the best) and a short note telling a little about myself, along with the current price of gas, housing, grocery staples, etc. I hope in the distant future someone comes across this and enjoys the little time capsule left behind.
