christmas card ribbon





i LOVE getting christmas cards. i seriously can't wait to get the mail in hopes that a card has arrived. sam is the best because if he gets the mail, he saves the cards for me to open. how great is that? the only thing is every year i leave them on the counter, they're getting knocked down every time we make coffee or grab a glass. so, this year i did the simplest thing possible and tacked some beautiful vintage ribbon (gifted to me from my lovely boss) and then used these adorable clothespins (available here) to attach the cards (thanks katie!). now i can look at leon's adorable face, not to mention all of the cute families in my life, in peace.

ps this week i've been feeling so uncool. sometimes the internet makes me feel like i'm in high school again. ick.

I've been feeling pretty uncool this week, too. But fret not! We will be the coolest kids in town on the 3rd!!!

what a fabulous, fabulous idea!
I usually tape mine all around a doorway or window, but this year i couldn't find my scotch tape, so I have them kind-of propped on the mantle, but whenever someone walks by they fly away.

I did this last year. It's so easy and makes the cards look nice and off of the counter!

You are a life saver! As of now I have my cards piled in a bowl on my counter. I know, a bowl, how sad is that? I stood there last night around midnight wondering where/what to do with them. I decided to go to bed in hopes that something creative would come to me... and YOU did!

P.S. Sorry to hear you feel uncool, does somebody need a good ol' fashion whipping?

"Uncool" cracks me up! Especially since you're the coolest. Leon's face kills me. He's on my dining room table now but I think I need a contraption like you've created. I love Christmas cards so much that I have all of mine from last year hanging on the back of my front door STILL! I've kept them up all year cause I love looking at them so much. :)

silly girl, you are cool, what are you talkin about?!

I LOVE Christmas cards, too. I'm so happy people of our generation actually send them!! Also, do I see a peek of your card featuring an adorable picture of Matilda at the xmas tree farm?! I love it! xoxo
