I didn’t make gift tags out of Christmas Cards this year…however I checked all the addresses on the envelopes and re read the letters and notes. I stapled all the letters together and marked them 2014. The envelopes were shredded and the cards recycled. I was covered in glitter once again…it seems every Christmas Card comes with a fair amount of sparkly glitter.
I still have a little address book. Inside all the moves, deaths and births have been noted along with a few cell phone numbers. Far Guy has all the addresses in his computer but I like my hands on all marked up old address book…I even have one from around 1975 that I am unwilling to part with. Silly maybe…
All of the Christmas Card Photos were marked with the year and shoved in a photo box to be dealt with at some other time…or not. They are a someday project.
All of those photos are a bit of history. Kids growing up… friends and relatives growing older…the proof is in the picture.
The old red enamel spittoon looking popcorn bowl that I have used for cards every year since about 1996 was washed and put away.
I enjoyed my afternoon.
