Have an Awesome Bday Card

I made and sent a birthday card earlier in the month to crafty friend Ka of Stamping Smiles Designs. Turns out her birthday is only a day after mine!


I keep mulling over the idea of making a better/more concerted effort to send handmade birthday cards to close family/friends, but I also think that's a tall order because I'm not sure I could commit to that and consistently make/send the cards.

Maybe I'm more in love with the idea of having a pretty perpetual calendar to keep track of birthdays and such? But then, I have to ask myself why, because I use Google Calendar for personal scheduling (enables collaboration with Greg!) and Outlook for work scheduling, so even though I see the planner trend becoming more and more popular in the crafting space, I don't feel like it's my thing from a practicality standpoint.
