Hello and a happy Wednesday to you all. I'm still thinking about Christmas around here. Perhaps because I just took down my tree the other day? I've been packing up tote after tote of holiday related stuff, including lots of stuff to be recycled next year.
For example, Christmas Cards around here get saved and turned into gift tags the next year. The ribbon decorating presents we receive gets saved and used again next year-for wrapping or decorating. I just can't let a sparkly, shiny taffeta ribbon go into the garbage. Argh! The waste of it all!!
Another reusing that happened this year? The lower branches that were cut off the tree [so we could stuff him into the stand] were strapped down to the deck railing and topped with lights. They made me happy during the Christmas Party this year.
But, I would love to hear more ideas on Christmas/Holiday related recycling. What do you do?
And, of course, those of you who actually aren't here from Rocks in My Dryer should head over there to see what's working for others this week.
