Cards, Cards, Cards

I just added some new cards to my ever growing collection. I just LOVE cards and notes from friends and family! I guess it stems from my love of getting snail mail and things that are hand written. There is not much to my little collection, it's basically a large book ring... just punch a whole in the corner and place it on. I have added ribbons and such to the ring so it makes it pretty. I LIKE PRETTY.

Some of my cards date back 15 years ago! I keep them on the door in my studio so I can keep an eye on them. This one is from friends, only I had to make a separate one for all the cards and notes my hubby gives me.

What a great idea! I must admit, I'm going to steal it and start my own visible collection of the cars I've kept over the years. It beats keeping the cards stacked away in a box!

Thanks!

hi jeN!
Aren't you clever!? I think I'm going to steal your idea :)
Glad you're back from NC. I lived in Durham for about 10 years so it was nice to see some familiar places.

That is too fun! I have all my cards stuffed in boxes and bins (I thought I was the only one who saved stuff like that) I will have to try this idea for all of our written treasures.
