Christmas "Craftiness"

When I see something crafty, I'm not always the girl who goes and tries to make it...I'm the girl who finds someone else who made it and purchases it. I keep people in business. However, I have saved my photo Christmas cards for the past two years and have been looking for some way to save them. Last year at this time, I came across a blog (I believe Kelly's Corner, but not exactly sure) that gave me this idea. She saved her Christmas cards each year and put them in a scrapbook that comes out during the holiday season. Each year the new cards are added. What a cute idea! It is a great way to see families and children grow each year, and as we are all married or getting married this is bound to happen. So....I finally got around to my project tonight. Sure, I probably should have been grading papers, but I need a break every once in a while, right?

I have to say I pretty proud of my "craft." It is pretty basic, but it is a good start for me. Don't expect me to start scrapbooking as a hobby (it takes effort some days to keep this blog up and some of that stuff was a little costly), but I will keep adding to this project each year. I'm looking forward to all my new cards this year!
