Thankful Thursday - ATC Storage

As you can see I use a regular photo album for my atc storage. I like this because I can write who they are from on the lines beside the atc and I don't have to handle them too much.
I can't tell you how much gratitude I feel and the feeling of a shared community with all of you that I trade ATCs with. Your generous loving nature is passed along with each card and I treasure them.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I will be celebrating my FIL's 90th birthday. Cheers.

The way you store your ATCs is wonderful. Nice to be able to know who did each one and the date!
Happy Birthday to your Father-in-law, 90 years old is amazing.

I like this album too. Our collections are so dear to us.I wonder if our beneficiaries will appreciate them as much as we do?

What a great way of show casing the ATC's I have yet to figure it out. How fun to see my ATCs there. :)
My Uncle will be 91 in August. So they are close in age.

I've been trying to figure out how I will keep my ATC's too. I like your idea and I liked the way soulbrush did hers too. At first I was just going to stick them in baseball card holders but I don't think that will show them to their best advantage nor would it be as personal.

Now that is an excellent idea Lisa, I hope you don't mind if I copy it too. Mine are in a box, except for my ABC ones, which I have a special hanging folder for. I love the idea of writing the notes and keeping the cards from the senders. I want to turn the page of yours though!! lol.
