This has been a busy month of letter writing. Ten letters so far. You can tell I kept the card design simple and consistent.
Letters of appreciation.
Letters of sympathy and letters of friendship.
A couple of birthdays.
A pretty no-occasion card to my mother-in-law.
And I made myself a 2018 calendar tally; I do this each year to keep track of who has received cards when. The top sheet in the photo above is last year's, the bottom one is for 2018.
The gold business card sized object above is a magnetic address book. It has fan-fold pages attached inside, and with the magnets, I can enclose my folded tally sheet and a small booklet of stamps as well, so everything is always handy in my purse to drop someone a line.
This small magnetic booklet holds only my most used addresses. I keep my entire address list in a Word file on my computer so it is easily updated, but I print it out once a year or so and keep the pages on file. I am always afraid of losing my addresses into the ether.
Do you still keep a hard copy of an address book, or do you rely solely on digital address keepers?
