Life at my house gets a little crazy at times.
(I will give those of you who know me a few minutes to stop laughing and regain your normal breathing pattern.)
One thing I struggle with is getting out cards for birthdays, an anniversary or some other big even in someone’s life. And it drives me crazy! Before kids, I would addresses cards for the entire month and have them ready to mail on specified days. Now, three children later, I am doing my best not to have to hand write the word ‘belated’ on them. I also like to make my own cards. However, I do not have the time to drag out all my card making supplies every time an occasion comes up.
Instead, I simply look at my calendar for the year in January. I count the number of occasions I know I will have to send a card for and then add to that number just to give me a little extra. I sit down for one evening or afternoon and make all the cards for the coming year. Then I put them in a little Rubbermaid container. They are divided by birthday, anniversary, baby, blank and thank you. The blanks can really be used for anything from a baby to a sympathy card. Works for me.
