We're over half way to Christmas. It won't be long before we'll be hearing sleigh bells and drinking eggnog. If you are like me, I like to plan ahead. I'm already thinking about my Christmas card list. We make new friends throughout the year so I update my list with new names and addresses. We put our tree up the weekend of Thanksgiving to make the festivities and decorations last that much longer. So I also like to have my Christmas cards sent out a week or two after Thanksgiving so friends and family can enjoy the pictures of our children that much longer.
Storkie.com already have their new Christmas and Holiday arrivals up on their website. I like to go all out with photo postage stamps and custom photo cards. It always brings joy to my extended family and friends to see the kids dressed in their PJs in front of my Christmas tree scene by the front door. Its also fun to see how they change and get bigger every year, when you think they can't get any cuter they do : ) Start thinking about Christmas now so you don't have to go through that mad rush in December.
I like this Symphony Photocard.
I'm afraid I can't let go of all the Christmas cards that I receive every year. I have piles of them. However, here's a list of ways to recycle them, I think its time I recycle:
Make Placemats & Coasters
Christmas Card Ball
Use as Gift Package Tags
Make a Christmas Collage
Use for Decoupage
Make NEW Cards
I like this option the best
Donate your cards to St. Jude's Ranch for Children. This charity recycles old cards by making brand-new ones. The money from these new cards is donated to the help children who were the victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment.
What do you do with yours?
