Organizing Christmas Cards: Family & Friends Photo Album

I'm like a little kid in a candy shop, when it comes to getting my mail every year, during the month of December. Why? because I LOVE to get Christmas cards from my family and friends.  

For the last couple of years, I display them in my home on a photo board and a little sleigh during the Christmas season.  I showed you that back in

2013

 and gave you some more ideas on how to display Christmas cards in that post too.

Once the Christmas Decor comes down, I take those photo cards and add them to a family and friends photo album that I created a couple of years back:

It's just a simple black 3 ring photo album and I use peel and stick pages for the inside.

I created a family & friends sign for the first page...

... and I add a 4 x 6 print with the year on it,  just before adding new pictures.

here are some the inside pages

Not only do I put Christmas card photo's into these albums, I also add photo's, birth announcements and more to the album, throughout the year, after they've been on my photo display board for a while.

This is the photo board that I have in my kitchen.   This is a fairly new piece that I made.  I made it with a large frame and I just stapled chicken wire to the back of the frame.

I use little clothespins from Walmart to hang the photos.

And then after they've been up for a while, I add them to the family and friends photo album:

I've been doing this now for a couple of years and I love this little system!  It's fun to look back through the years.

How about you? Do you keep your photo Christmas cards each year?  How do you organize them?

May you be a little inspired!

Until next time,
