Christmas time is my favorite time of year! Like many people, I love spreading Christmas cheer by giving gifts and sending Christmas cards.

It’s my most favorite time of the year—Christmas card season! If you’re anything like me, you love poring over every Christmas card and letter to grace your mailbox and take great pleasure in catching up on the latest and greatest happenings of your friends and family from the last year. I love looking at every unique Christmas card! But then what? Do you toss the cards? Tuck them away in a box somewhere? Or…?
