I typically pile the cards in a bowl on the kitchen counter, but you don't really get to enjoy them much that way. And since we lived in Nashville for 10 years, we have many long-distance-friends whose cards I really look forward to and want to display.
I came across this method on a blog, but can't remember which one. If you know, message me so I can credit them! Simply tape a pretty ribbon to the front of your kitchen cabinets, then pin your cards to the ribbon:
Now I can see all my friends and family every day!
Is everyone late in getting their cards out, or what?! I went ahead and prepped other cabinets for more cards I hope will come. I think it's super cute...my cabinets look like presents!
I loved when Emily posted her family's previous Christmas cards (she's only getting more gorgeous with age!), so I thought it'd be fun to do the same (this blog does serve as my personal scrapbook, after all). I could only go back as far as 2004, since our camera had actual film in it before then.
2004: Only 1 kid...life was so cake (of course we didn't realize it then)!
2005: Christmas Beach Bunny -- I decided Mom and Dad couldn't compete with this face, so we stayed out that year:
2006: Our family was complete with the arrival of Babygirl! We kept the silly family shot since I figured it was a pretty accurate image of us!
And 2010 -- This year we had a great snow, a Family Trip to Sanibel (if you think I'm posting a family pic on the beach, you are ca-raz-ay!) and Mr. Sugarplum and I ran off to Banff!
Thanks for indulging my walk down memory lane, I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us! How do you display your cards? Do you send one out every year?
