If you are like me, one of the best parts of the Holiday season is the sending and receiving of Christmas cards. But with every move, our list gets longer and longer, and in our new home, there isn't a practical way to display the cards and photos of our friends that come with their holiday greetings. So I came up with a plan this year. I bought a medium sized hurricane jar at Target and placed it on the table in my entry. I can see all the cards in there, but they are orderly and contained.
As a scrapbooker at heart, I can't seem to throw our friends' Christmas photos away! So this year, I bought a 8 1/2" by 8 1/2" album and a set of Making Memories papers and embellishments (saved me time trying to match everything) and am placing the photos in our little scrapbook as they come in, starting with our family Christmas photo.
That way, they are displayed, and I won't be overwhelmed with photos at the end of the season! Plus, we'll be able to enjoy them throughout the year...my kids LOVE to look at the pictures of their friends they miss in Montana!
