Christmas Card Organization

I have a problem.  I have a really hard time throwing away Christmas cards, baby announcements, and any other card or announcement that has a picture on it.  I have thrown away some in the past, but not all of them.  

This year I decided to organize my picture cards and announcements.  To begin with, I punched two holes in each card, with a three hole punch.  Then I organized the pictures by year, then separated each year with a piece of cardstock paper and wrote the year on each piece of cardstock.  I found some 3" book rings at Staples to keep everything together.  

I plan on keeping my new book with the my Christmas decorations and setting them out during the holidays to enjoy.  

Happy Champagne Thursday!

Free Valentines Print

Have you started decorating for Valentine's day?  Do you decorate for Valentine's day?  I don't do too much, but I did decorate my mantel.  I made an 'All You Need Is Love' print because I love The Beatles and it's the perfect phrase for Valentines.  I had an 8 x 10 print, printed at Costco and framed it in an 11 x 14 frame. Download the free print here.

I also bought a cardboard X and O and painted them red and pink for hugs and kisses.  I used some of the bottles and vases from years past for other miscellaneous items on the mantel as well.  Use what you have!  

Hugs & Kisses

I'm not making any promises, but I'm really hoping to have some sort of project done by next week.  I'm not sure what's going on but last week I went to use our dremel tool, to work on an anniversary project for Chris and he had taken it to work.  Seriously, we use our dremel about 3 times a year and we both happen to need it on the same day.  So, maybe I'll finish that project, it shouldn't take too long.

Happy Champagne Thursday!
