How do you Record your Christmas card list.
How do you record your Christmas card list.
I used to keep them in this Christmas Card Record Book.
I really liked it.
Here are the inside pages.
Of course I didn't share the pages with the already filled in addresses.
Here is a close up of these pages.
What I like about them is that I can not only record the names and address of the recipients, but I can also check off who I sent them to and who I received them from.
Usually what I do is if I don't receive a card from someone for 5 years, they get removed from my list.
I say usually, because there are a few relatives that I keep on.
Or the year that I didn't receive a card from my one aunt for over 5 years, so decided to remove her from my list....then I received one from her, lol.
I said that this is HOW I used to record my Christmas card list
For the last 6 years I made a file on Wayne's computer with all the names and addresses. As well as a clip art image of a Christmas wreath.
Then I printed them on these address labels. So much more easier......
Until Wayne's computer crashed and I lost the list :(
Sure we had saved it to his external hard drive, but my laptop won't read it :(
So this year it is back to hand writing, plus hoping that I don't forget anyone.
I will be sending out about 30 cards and I am short 5.
Remember this house I saw during Halloween with the giant cat in the yard?
Well Heather and I drove by it today and now they have a giant reindeer :)
Onto My Day:
I had to run out to drop off my 3 years of business tickets for storage. I brought Heather with me, just in case the guys were to busy to help. But they were all so kind to eagerly helped me. Those bins were really heavy. I couldn't pick one up myself.
Then Heather and I went to the Hoito for Finnish pancakes, yumm.
Had a few more errands to run.
Then came home to organize my work area. I have a little area in the basement where I keep my work supplies, photo copier, papers and monthly business tickets. I just have a bit more to do and it is in tip top shape again.
I hope you all have had a creative Tuesday :)
Tomorrow we are putting up our Christmas Tree :)
