First Christmas Card of 2017

Happy New Year!  I hope 2017 brings you many blessings.

This is the first challenge of the year for Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra!
I spent some time after Christmas organizing my Christmas card list. I wrote down all the Christmas cards, gift tags, gift card holders, thank you cards etc I need to make and organized by family. I also made sure I updated addresses. I keep all of this written on index tabs I made for a storage box. Each recipient has their own divider. As I make my projects, I will put them in the box along with the addressed envelope. This makes it so much easier in December when I am ready to take cards to post office. This also helps me know whose card can have extra big embellishments and won't need to be mailed and which cards need to be more post office friendly. I have even purchased my wrapping paper at the after Christmas sales. Now I can make my gift tags ahead of time so they match. 

So if you want to be more organized and get your Christmas cards done earlier this year, then participating in the monthly challenges at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Card Challenge Extra is the perfect way to do so. All the challenges are anything Christmas goes so lets see what you can do!
