Like most people, we receive a lot of cards through the month of December. We started off trying to just dedicate a counter space to them. Then it took over an entire sideboard table. Before long it was just too much to dedicate a flat space to. We decided we needed to think of something else to display them but have them out of the way. Several years ago we decided to start hanging them on the door. I took a big ribbon & made a bow- then tied it to the door like a gift. I keep a hole punch & a baggie of ribbons near where I open the mail & whenever we get a new card they get a punch & tied on to the door.
Now I know this looks sad- only 2 cards on there right now. That is because we just moved in to our cabin a week ago. By the end of the month the whole door will be filled & I will have run out of space. When I take them down I keep each year’s cards bundled with the ribbon so when I start setting up next year I can look back & see just how much everyone has changed & remember what everyone was doing.
Be sure to come back tomorrow to join me for my 12 Days of Christmas- Holiday Bucket List Linky Party
