Saying Goodbye to Flakey Friends

I REALLY like this "Flakey Friends" set. I'm going to be hanging on to mine for a while yet. I figure as long as I can still make money with my old sets I'm going to hang on to them for a bit longer. Or if it should ever happen, that I have absolutely no room for one more new set I'll have to consider letting it go then. But for the time being I still have room!!!

This is a Christmas Card Record book to keep track of who you send and receive Christmas cards. I have not made one in many years. I'm SO frugal with mine. I don't put an "X" in the box. I just put a half an "X" when I send the card out and then finish the "X" if I receive a card from that address. That way my 5 year record book lasted 10 years. The last time I did my record book I also printed out an extra set of mailing labels so I didn't have to write any names in the book either. I just slapped a label on the lines and was good to go!!! Is it frugal or lazy???? Sometimes it's a fine line there!!! LOL

I have to apologize here. I can not find the PDF file for the inside of the book. It's been a few years since I've used it. The last time I had pages copied I had a master copy and took it to a printer. Probably because I couldn't find the PDF file way back then. It's on my "to do" list.

I used the Rubi Coil punch machine to make this book. It measures 5-1/2" x 8". You don't need a Rubi Coil to make this book. You can use the Hemp Bound notebook tutorial for this. Just click on that link and it will take you to the page with the instructions. You can make your own lines using your word processor or just add labels on your pages and write the years in next to them. There's lots of ways you can make your own book. I know you're creative!!!

So now I have a new Christmas card record book to use if and when I get those Christmas cards done!!!!!! I'm hoping to do that by Wednesday!!! Then I can move on to the baking and then that dreaded house cleaning. I have a million projects going on all at the same time. It would be nice if they could all come together at the same time and be done!!! I can dream, can't I??? LOL

And do you think in 10 years when I need another record book that I will still own the Flakey Friends set???? Who knows?? LOL

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
