Christmas Cards are Treasures

The Christmas cards have started to arrive and the big question is....what am I going to do with them! I don't want to just put them in a stack on the desk.....they are all treasures and meant to be enjoyed.

Some were made by sweet family members....

some were selected especially for me..who knew  I  like pink?

You will find my treasures scattered all through the house.....These have been paper clipped to wires strung across picture frames.  I can easily change them out as new ones arrive

I put some under the Christmas tree...

This is the one my daughter sent this year...she knows that I love the fold out kind!

I put some on the kitchen table...we will enjoy these when we have coffee in the mornings.

I will change them out as we get new ones...
I will put a few special ones on the table next to our bed.....some will go  on the table in my inspiration room... some on a silver plate in the entry way..... clip them to a lamp shade frame (set it on the dining table as the centerpiece, your guests will love to look at your treasures as they eat......make a wreath with them (just pin them to a straw wreath and add a bow ....string them together to make a garland,... hang a shutter on the wall or door and put your cards in the slots.   The list goes on and on......And there are so many crafts you can use them in when Christmas is over!  I hope you have got some inspiration...
