It’s nearly February. Which means that if I were to talk about a holiday I should probably be talking about Valentine’s Day. However, I just realized that I never shared with you guys what I decided to do with all of our Christmas cards. So pretend it’s still Christmas with me for a minute and let’s pull up a picture of what we do with our Christmas cards every year:
Christopher’s family always put their Christmas cards on the tree when he was growing up so that’s a tradition we’ve adopted into our family as well. Except that we have two Christmas trees. One for all of our travel/unique decorations and one for that year’s Christmas cards. By the way, you guys might recognize a few faces on that tree! Like Allison, Amy, Rachel, Janna and Katie. 🙂
All our cards from years past just sit in a little basket on the hearth which is just fine, but I wanted to organize them a little better after Christmas this year. So when I came across this idea for a Christmas Card Book from Eighteen25, I knew it was perfect!
I kept the cards separated by years with these little dividers that I printed off from Eighteen25. The first binder has 2008, 2009, 2010 in it and the second binder has 2011, 2012, and 2013.
And as a fun bonus… I TOOK THESE PICTURES! 😀 You guys, it makes me smile so much to get Christmas cards (or really any mail in general), but when I get a Christmas card that hosts a photo I took I feel so honored. 🙂
So, that’s what I did with the past 6 years of Christmas cards! It is so fun flipping through the books and seeing how much kids have changed over the years and watching our friends’ families grow in yearly photos. 🙂 Merry Christmas a month later. 😉
