What do you do with holiday cards?
Posted 10th January, 2008 inby Andrea
Remember when I asked what everyone does with their holiday cards and what kinds of cards you like to recieve? Well, today I put a new plan in action to save our annual Christmas cards covered with the current year's holiday postage stamps . It's very simple--just a manila envelope to put all the photos and letters inside. Then I decorated the front of the envelope with punched squares from all the other cards we received. On the back of the envelope, I wrote down who we received cards from and how we know them. Seems obvious right now, but someday it might not be. Maybe next year I'll get a pretty basket to put the envelopes in and they can add to our holiday decor.
I'll admit, this process seems to be a little over-kill in the "memory-keeping" department, and yes, they may all be trashed someday. But...our MOPS meeting this week was about geneaology and how to do family tree research, and I guess in my head I have this vision of one of these families looking for information and photographs about their family and I'll have their 2007 family photo archived in my folders. Silly, I know...but these are the kinds of things I think about!
Thanks to everyone who sent us cards this year. We enjoyed them all!
