The Christmas Card

The one thing that I sometimes don’t do is Christmas cards. I buy the cards, think about addressing them, possibly do fill them out and address them, then forget to take them to the post office in time for actual pre-event arrival. The cards, in my opinion, are a waste of time and money, not to mention additional environmental sludge. I really put very little emphasis or time into cards because I don’t think people really get that much out of them. So my goal this year is to gather some ideas for cards – or greetings – that have a practical use.

Mason jars filled with dry ingredients to make cookies or cupcakes sound like fun, with a little tag that says, “Thinking of you.” Practical, reusable, and extremely expensive to ship (in comparison to a card). So if your recipient lives within visiting distance, these are great as drop-off cards. I’m not real creative in this department – so I NEED HELP. (Seriously, not the medical kind, although that may be necessary as well. We’ll leave that for another post. ;-))

So if you have any great ideas for practical, reusable, environmentally friendly greeting cards/gifts, let me know. Remember, cheap to ship. You can leave your link to your blog post, tutorial, or just a suggestion. I will tell others where to find you (blog traffic!) or work with you to create a post about your terrific idea on this blog. I’ve scoured the Internet, and will probably scour some more, to find those ideas. Until then, your input would be much appreciated.

    From my friend on Twitter—> A friend made me a card w/heart cutout. In that was a pieced fabric heart full of lavender, so it was a card & a sachets 4 my drawer.
