Christmas Card Display

A Christmas card showed up in my mailbox this November. First, I panicked thinking that I missed something.

Calm down.

Breathe.

Think.

Wait! It’s not even Thanksgiving!

Whew.

I’m good!

I’ve always been a procrastinator by nature so people who are organized freak me out a little. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to be organized and neat, but my mind does NOT work like that. I enjoy having a neat and clean house, but rarely can I keep it that way because my mind tries to focus in on everything AT ONCE. It’s a little maddening. Welcome to my world. 😉

Anyway, that nice little card reminded me that I need to find an area to display it along with the other Christmas cards that will come.

Thankfully, we just so happen to have an empty space on the wall in our kitchen. For the past several years, I have used that empty space to create a tree out of cards. I simply start with a vertical card at the top of the wall and add new cards underneath as they come. It’s a fun display and it’s so simple to do. You may have to rearrange a few cards now and then to make it look its best, but overall it is a super easy way to display the cards and make a decoration at the same time! You could even add a little bit of snazziness with a paper star or bow at the top. Happy decorating!
