Finding cards in the mail box is one of my favorite parts of the holidays.
Well-wishes, family photos and lengthy notes connect me with people I don’t see often enough during the year. When the magic of the season dies down, decorations are stuffed into boxes and dragged out to the garage. What happens to the cards? I keep mine for a while, until something else needs the space. At some sad point, they usually find their way to into the trash. This year was different; my husband found a solution. In a Natural Awakenings magazine that he swiped from the tea store in

pictures and nice phrases and use them as gift tags for next year’s holiday gifts.”
