Let's get organized!

Hello and happy Tuesday! : ) Hope everyone is doing well!

January is a month full of birthday's in my world! While I was making a birthday card last week it got me to thinking that I really need some sort of organizational method to keep up with birthdays and cards. I went blurfing (Blof surfing!) around and saw several cute ideas! I narrowed it down to a couple that I really liked and finally chose this one! The original design is by Lauren Meader. She is just awesome! The basic card pockets in the box come from her Timeless Templates (which are way too much fun!!). I put this one together from her instructions and added some personal flair! I gave this one away as a gift, but hope to make my own today! : )

It allows you to make ahead and organize/store your cards for birthday's and anniversaries! I used my Just Rite Stamps to personalize the front of this and to label the months. Each pocket holds two months worth of cards and the extra pocket in back could hold envelopes, pens, a list of all of your upcoming dates etc... It is small and takes up a minimal amount of desk space! I just LOVE this project! Now I just need to spend the better part of an afternoon making some extra cards to fill it up the pockets! : )

I am going to try to stop back by later today to share some of the cards that I have made this month! I have a full day though so if I do not make it back I will see you in the morning!

Have a wonderful day! : )

Beautiful AnnMarie! I love the blue color. I'm trying to resist the Just Rite craze (have to draw a line somewhere right??).

Sigh... sometimes I think I'm beyond help with the whole getting organized thing.

What a great storage system! Love the colors you chose, too. I haven't tried any of Lauren's templates yet, but it's on my list of things to do.
