I didn’t used to care about cards. Birthday cards, valentines day cards, Christmas cards. Mehhhhh.
My friend passed away. And I found a couple of cards from her. Cards that she had touched. Cards that she had written with her own hands. Cards with her writing.
It made me realize, everyone I love is not going to be in my life forever. With all the texting and emailing now a days, you get so few hand written cards. So the few written things I get from people I love, I want to save. So I’m saving them all.
But, what to do with them??? Well I’m sure everyone and their mom is on Pinterest (literally, because I actually know a lot of moms on Pinterest). And being the Pinterest fanatic that I am, I actually did one of the brilliant ideas floating around on there.
Soooo easy and soooooo cute. I got the ring binders from Office Depot, punched some holes in all this years Christmas cards (I did make a template to insure I’d have the same hole distance on each card), printed out this “Christmas Card” cover printable I found here. And there it is…Christmas card book forevvvvver.
And next year, I’m going to leave it out for all to see. Did you hear that? If you didn’t send us a card this year, you’re going to feel pretty left out when everyone else’s cards are displayed in all of their glory, except yours. Boooooooommmm!!
Make one, it’s easy!!!
