I love getting Christmas cards…pretty paper is my kryptonite.
Here’s what we are doing with our cards this year:
I got this idea from MyFriendJen, who hung her Christmas cards on her banister like this last year. When I was in senior public, giving out Christmas cards was a big fad among the girls in my class, and my older sister and I would receive upwards of 30 or 40 cards a year. My mom would hang a few ribbons in semi-circles on the wall of our room like this, for us to hang up our cards. So when I saw the same effect at Jen’s, it instantly appealed to both my sense of nostalgia and my sense of organization. We call that a win-win situation.
And to think all this time I wasn’t able to come up with any better idea than stacking the cards five thick on the mantle.
Needless to say, a new tradition has been born.
