Last year I ran into the problem of having Christmas cards that I wanted to display but didn't have a good home for. This year, I decided to change that by using some ribbon and the utility closet door in our dining room :). I went to Michaels and picked out 2 different designs of ribbon - one that was really wide (the striped) and one that was thinner (the see-through red). I then purchased enough to cover the height of my door twice (if you look closely, I should've bought an extra spool of the thinner ribbon because I ran out). I also purchased little baby clothes pins to use to hold the cards to the ribbon. I layered 1 long piece of the striped ribbon in back of the thinner, red ribbon so that I could attach the cards to the thinner ribbon. I used push pins to hold the ribbon into place and viola! I ended up with a fun, festive way to practically show off my Christmas cards year after year!

I fully intend on bagging these supplies up and pulling them out year after year to showcase my Christmas cards!
So normally I would say that I have NOTHING worth typing about that anyone would be interested in reading, however, with all the change that is upon my life, why not write about it? This blog is for those who are bored and are curious of all the craziness that is to come in the next couple of months as my life goes from quiet and scheduled to somewhat hectic.
