We just received in the mail our first two holiday cards of the season. I’ve gotta say, I’m impressed — it’s only December 6th! I’m still waiting on the proofs from our family photo session and deciding on a card design; however, our tradition of sending out New Year cards does buy me a little bit more time. I’d be in a bit of a panic if I were trying to get out Chanukah or Christmas cards! (Note to procrastinators: Send New Year cards!)
When will you send out your holiday cards?
Pretty soon the floodgates will open and holiday cards from family and friends will come pouring in. (Just kidding. We’re not that popular.) But we will have to figure out how to display the dozen or so beautiful cards we do receive, especially the photo cards of our faraway loved ones. In the past, we’ve simply stuck them on the fridge, but our refrigerator is cluttered enough with baby announcements, Stickygram magnets, and to-do lists. Plus, I really hate the look of a busy fridge.
Searching for inspiration, I found several creative ways to display holiday cards that range from hanging them on clothespins to casually collecting them in baskets. I especially like the idea of a festive bulletin board solely for greeting cards, but first I’d need to buy a bulletin board and then I’d need to figure out where in the house to put it. Hmm…
What do you do with the Christmas, Chanukah or New Year cards you receive?
