Tuesday's To Do

Work on my Christmas cards!

This year, I'm doing something different, a newsletter.

Don't judge. I'm still a little nervous about it, but it's out there now. I'm doing it.

Are you doing Christmas cards this year?
What kind?
Also, what do you do with the cards you receive? Display? Throw away? Keep forever?

Do tell.

  1. That is cool! I am doing my first Christmas letter this year included with our normal family photo card. I read an article in Real Simple about how cards are outdated and impersonal and we should stop sending them. I was horrified so am fighting back by working to make them more personal.

    With the cards we receive, I have a ribbon board in our kitchen that I display them and then I keep all the photo ones. Have a friends mom who made a scrapbook of them and had about 20 years of cards. She would display them on her coffee table every Christmas and I always loved looking at them. Plan to do that when I have some "free time".

  2. Christmas cards have always been a big deal to me. I am usually pretty obsessive but this year I was in a rush and on a smaller budget, so I can't say I love the picture. With Facebook, so many friends and family see my children's pictures year around, which is a change.

    I also keep all the cards. I started when we were first married after seeing one of my mom's friend's collections. I put wrapping paper over shoe boxes and put last names on long red envelopes to organize them. I also keep birth announcements. I now have 10 years worth of cards, which is really neat. I actually pulled them out last night. Come find your name next time you come over! I am glad I did it when I did (law student) because I am not sure I could do it today!

  3. I love Christmas cards, but this year we are being incredibly impersonal and only sending them virtually. (We are in the process of finalizing an adoption, and want to save money so that we can send out adoption announcements in a few months.) I have always written a letter and had fun with it. Our cards get displayed in our dining room inside an old cabinet that I open up for Christmas. After Christmas I take out any photos I received and tape them to our refrigerator in an attempt to remember to pray for the people pictured.

    I just stumbled on your blog, and it is so sweet! I look forward to visiting again!
