Time to take down the twinkling lights, pack the ornaments, and fill up the attic with boxes of Christmas decorations. But, what about those Christmas cards?
It is fun to decorate for the holidays, but when it comes time to take it all down the fun stops. Except for the cards received, that part is fun and easy. We display our cards on our window blinds.
Each year we take all the Christmas cards, put them in a basket, and each night at dinner we pick one card and reminisce and pray for the family who sent us the card until all the cards are gone. This usually stretches the Christmas spirit well into February.
This is a good reason to send and receive Christmas cards. Do you still send Christmas cards?
Moments with Mary
Love is in the air. Need valentine décor? Here is a quick and nostalgic idea. Display some of your old valentine cards. To protect the sentimental or fragile ones, frame them. Here is one I got as a little girl from my aunt. She even wrote my name on the envelope in the girl’s hand. It’s fun to reminisce and display a part of your history. XOXO!

The ideas of things to decorate your cards are endless.

Some of my favorite cards are the homemade ones. I love the fact that someone created it just for me with paper, glue, and a special poem or heartfelt note.
