I really want to be better about sending out cards. Not just for birthdays, but for other holidays and for no reason other than someone is on my mind. In an attempt to improve my success in this endeavor, I have made some changes to how I store and sort my cards.
I started with my general stash of cards.
I took one of my double sided bins and put all the cards in there, envelopes too. I then made dividers for the types of cards I already had. I want to eventually fill up both sides with ready to go cards! Right now, the stack on the right need to be finished, most are missing an inside sentiment.
Next I made a birthday box using one of my Really Useful Boxes.
I made dividers for this as well, by the months. Then I made my own 4 x 6 index cards and wrote the month, the names of the people that have birthdays that month and the date. Now the plan is to fill the box with birthday cards so that I don’t have to scramble to make them! I already started making some super simple cards, they aren’t done yet but it’s a start.
I have so much stuff to create with, but haven’t been creating nearly enough. Life always seems to have it’s own plans for me. My goal is to make sure that I carve out some time, often, to create.
Have a crafty day!
