I was trying to figure out a way to show off my Christmas cards without buying anything special and I remembered that my mom used to hang wide ribbon down a wall and pin the cards to it. So, I took some wide ribbon and hung it horizontally on the wall with bows at either end (to hide the tacks). I punched holes in my cards and threaded sparkly pipe cleaners through them (they're called "stems" nowadays) and hung them from the ribbon. You can vary the length of the pipe cleaners too. Anyway, I got the idea from my veterinarian who had strung her cards up with ribbon only the ribbon went through the holes. My ribbon was a little too bulky so I thought this would work better.

Think I paid $5 total for the ribbon and stems. It's a great way to fill up a blah spot on the wall without having to go all out and make another wreath or something.

You can vary this idea from season to season--Easter, Kwanza, Hanukkah, birthdays, even Halloween (if you send cards for that). Oh, and don't forget anniversaries or other special moments in your life.

I have had much trouble with FTP today. I even restarted my computer as it was when I first turned it on this morning to be rid of the difficulties. Now is is not working for my graphics. I will try again! Sorry! That "where an image should be" is supposed to be the right hand side of the matching bell bracket.
*sigh*

The little angel is John's and my contribution to festivity here. He slowed down a very frantic angel and got rid of her background (made it transparent.) I found her and finally got her on Spring's hard drive so I could post her. I put her above the flag icon after a lot of thought. I think all earthly things need a higher source of encouragement. Especially, now!

I do like this one, though. I even had it on crafts where the angel is for a while... But, the angel was needed here.

The snow horizontal dividers are in in honor of the white new year in the southern parts of Europe and North America. No one seems to be happy about it, but snow is beautiful in Hawaii.

That IS ther most beautiful snow globe I have ever seen, too! I used to collect tiny ones but I have not place to put them, so they are packed away. This way it is always safe and my rocks have replaced most of them on my display stand.

Wolfie, just let me know when you tire of the snow and I will change them back to the Celtic embroidery - or whatever you like.

OK!!! I just came in here to see if I should remove them. I like them, too! Until we deck the halls for Mardi Gras or the Easter Bunny... I stowed all of my bows and little trees and lights and other decorations for the holidays. everything looks so barren now. Like winter anywhere. Outside I have my huge hibiscus to prune and things like that. Perhaps tomorrow...! Besides, THAT goes in the Garden Conference.

YES!!!!! Party time! I've been working on a thought and will send it to you in email for suggestions if I am successful in my endeavors to manipulate a graphic.
