This time of year it seems that the cards pour in faster than we can read them. Instead of the usual prop-them-on-the-mantle routine, we take the good wishes from friends and family them into a kind of holiday garland of their own. . .
It's a simple project - just secure a piece of yarn with two thumbtacks on either side of the mantle (or door frame, or entry table, really any space will do.) Slip the cards over the yarn and voila! - the cards are displayed and you're one step closer to being done with holiday decorations.
How are you dealing with the influx of "good mail" this season?
