Friday Favorites-Birthday Card Organization

I have been slacking on my Friday Favorites, guess I've been too busy trying to get things done for Christmas.

For the past two years I have been making my Christmas cards throughout the year so I have them all done by November, this has really worked out for me so I've been thinking I need to implement a similar idea for birthday cards (I don't send out anniversary cards but maybe if I get organized I just might). So I've been searching for ways to get organized with my birthday cards. Im even going to do a monthly challenge for the gals on Wisconsin Scrappers, maybe I'll even bring it over to my blog if I get things figured out and organized by the 1st :)

So, as I've been looking around I've found some ideas out there. Nicole Heady has a post on her blog about this with a free downloadable calendar. Here's the post with some ideas. And here's a pic of her calendar. I actually have a notebook with a calendar in it but I just don't seem to use it. So that's my 1st goal, to get something that I will utilize I also like her tip about putting a reminder in your phone to send your cards out. Usually I can get the card made (basically the day before lol) but I never seem to get it filled out and dropped in the mail.
Do you have any tips or anything to share with how you keep organized with your Birthday cards? I'd love to hear/see what you do.

Wish I had tips Trudi but I'm useless - I'm a last minute or even later girl. I think I need to get myself organised - maybe I should take up some of these ideas.

Dear Author trudiwilbur.blogspot.com !
It is a pity, that now I can not express - I am late for a meeting. But I will be released - I will necessarily write that I think on this question.
