One of my favorite traditions is to send Christmas cards each year.
Back before I had my son, our cards were beautiful, elaborate works of handcrafted art, complete with a newsletter filled with wonderful highlight stories of year.
And, of course, they were sent right after Thanksgiving Day.
I clearly had too much time on my hands.
In recent years, I’m doing good to upload a photo and address book database to TinyPrints.com and have them mail them in time.
But this year, for some reason, I was on the ball. And I got my cards out in plenty of time.
In addition to sending cards, I adore receiving cards from family and friends, and I thought it might be fun to show you how I display them and keep them for years to come.
Because, yes, I definitely have every.single.card. we’ve received since we were married. And it’s super fun to flip through them each year to see how everyone has changed.
More on the archival process tomorrow.
Today I’m going to show you how I display Christmas cards in my house:
We’ve hung them this way for years and I’ve never had a problem with paint chipping. And it’s strong enough to hold them up for a month or so.
Which is great, because I keep the cards up throughout January so that we can enjoy them even after the Christmas decorations come down.
Tomorrow on the blog, I’ll show you what I do with the cards after they come down.
Hey clients…if you have an extra Christmas card with your photos from this year, I would LOVE to see how it turned out! Mail me one at:
