I made gift tags out of some of the Christmas Cards.
Recycling at its finest. Cut out whatever part of the card you can save and then fold it over. I make my gift tags all different sizes…just because I am anal retentive and want to change things up a bit. Years ago I would have measured them so they would be exactly the same size. I would not made use of the cards with glitter either years ago..too messy..this year I threw caution to the wind and had a bit of glitter all over the table and me. You could punch holes for a bit of string or ribbon like in the olden days before sticky tags.
See all different sizes and some glitter too!
All the addresses were updated in my address book and in Far Guys data base for labels. All the Christmas letters made it to the “library” and all the photos were marked with the year and put into a photo storage box.
I sent off my Altered Book for the book exchange and wrote cards and some notes to people who were heavy on my mind. Another sympathy card was sent out too.
My Mother brought me a gift of four Shiny Brites or Shiny Brite relatives from a church sale.
The far one was made in Austria, the gold one was made by the Coby Glass Company, the pink one is an unknown and the blue one down front is a Shiny Brite.
This year I added two boxes of the new Retro Shiny Brites that are sold at Menards. I was there on a 50% off day..so it was two for one…so now I have one box of Retro Shiny Brites for each of my grandchildren.
Yes the Shiny Brite tree is still up. I have really enjoyed it after Christmas this year.
I will begin the un-decorating soon. It is quite a project. Every ornament has its place!
