I've mentioned before that I LOVE Christmas cards....I REALLY REALLY love them. Family newsletters and pictures are my favorite. I love reading about what everyone has been up too, catching up with relatives I don't get to see very often, and seeing how much everyone has changed, or grown since last Christmas.
I just have to share my awesome system I have come up with for storing my Christmas cards. It is SO awesome...it may just be the coolest system you have ever seen....you will be amazed at my creativity....you've been warned......
JK!!! Really, is this not the most boring, lamest way to keep these precious bits of memories???? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me with some clever and beautiful ideas for what to do with my Christmas cards. I have a bag like this for just about every year we have been married. I tried one year to cut them up and make gift tags for next year (after cutting out and saving any handwritten messages inside) and while the tags were cute, I really missed my cards after I did that to them:( So all you wonderfully creative ladies, what do you do with your Christmas cards???? I usually receive about 60 cards a year and I just really want to do something with them that is nicer than a gallon size ziploc bag.
I have started my list of goals - eventually I want to do a layout like Moki did featuring my goals, but for now I am content to have them written on a little post it note. So far I have -
2. Reduce Clutter
3. Complete one altered book
4. Complete one fat book
5. Complete at least one WIP each month
I am working right now on 1 and 2 - my goal for this week is to put away/go through at least 10 things a night. Tonight hubby and I filled a garbage bag with at least 10 pairs of shoes that Miss S has outgrown, I listed 5 books to sell on Amazon.com and I have two Cottage Living issues that I mailing out to a friend tomorrow. I think I have successfully completed my 10 things for tonite:)
