Decluttering your Papercrafting Supplies - Day Twenty Six

If you are a cardmaker, you may find that you have quite a collection of unsent cards.  Some people keep them to use as examples to copy later, some people keep them just because they can't give their hard work away and some people, like me, are just too lazy to get them sent out.  Postage is another factor too.  The thing is, cards are meant to be shared, they bring joy and comfort and if you are keeping all of them, you are making the world a little less more wonderful, at least in my opinion.

Who should you send them to?  Look around you during your day, you come across so many lovely, hard working people, imagine what an unexpected card would do for them?  Last Christmas I actually took a stack of cards with me and gave them out randomly.  It was sooo much fun!!!  You could also send to:

Cousins, Aunts, and Uncles and such
Your siblings
Your bank teller
The lady across the street who lost her husband years ago
The hard working postal workers
The local senior center
Your fellow workers or team
Old friends
New friends!
Your local hospice
Military organizations like http://operationwritehome.org

The possibilities are endless so don't be a card hoarder, spread the love!!!  Comment below on who you send your cards too and be in the drawing for a pack of shimmer trim!

The new catalog is live!   You can see it here!

  1. My sister and I send blank handmade greeting cards to www.operationwritehome.org They send boxes of cards to deployed troops to use to send home to family and friends. Check out their webite first as they do have some rules. I am also starting to send birthday and anniversary cards to people from my church.
