Instead of waiting until the week before Christmas to do your Christmas Cards, why not consider getting organized beforehand?...Start by finding a container to keep your cards/stamps/pens/stickers/address book in so you can dash off a few at a time as you are watching tv or when you find snippets of time throughout your busy days. Years ago I bought this decorative box full of premade cards and decided to keep for this very purpose..the box is a decorative element and looks quite festive left sitting out on my desk in the den. I love the little ties myself and you could easily add some ties to a sturdy box you might have tucked away...Instead of buying something, why not look around your house and see what could work for holding all your card writing supplies...Some "out of the box" ideas to consider:
a pretty festive basket
a photo box you could embellish
a pretty tote
a large tin (those type the popcorn comes in would work great)
If you could start now and write a couple cards each day, you could be ready to mail the first week of December. I know with the cost of postage going up..up..up; lots of folks are not sending cards these days and I think that's kinda sad...for less than a dollar, you can mail a card to brighten someone's day and perhaps give them a bit of Christmas Cheer....it's hard to not smile when you go to your mailbox during the holidays and pull out a Christmas Card to read.....Please share your tips how you make Card Sending as easy as possible with us, we would love to hear your thoughts!
