Are your holiday cards in the mail yet?

Mine are not on the way. Mine sometimes even end up going out close to or even after Christmas. I confess.
I heard a Plurk friend exclaiming that she'd already received a card from an uber-organized Martha type. I guarantee it wasn't me. In fact, I just cut up last year's cards a week ago! With the help of a few fun craft scissors and a basket full of holiday and birthday cards, I can create gift tags and little decorative pieces for gift wrap. Some cards will yield not just one, but several cute tags.

Martha Stewart doesn't live here. Nope. Never has, never will. But I'll tell you this: I haven't purchased gift tags since we were married 25 years ago. It's too much fun (and green and frugal)to do it this way!

I do that with my holiday cards too! And I get all kinds of compliments on how cute my gift-tags are...though no one ever seems to copy my idea and I sure would love it if they did.

I make gift tags as well. :) I'm also going to make my own Christmas cards this year. I need to start!

I do the same thing to make gift tags! No cards yet here, either. I need to order our photos still...
