Inexpensive Entertainment

We've been cooped up in the house for way too many days because it's cold outside and I have a broken toe - which makes it somewhat difficult to drive anywhere.

Today, I pulled out a couple of packs of blank cards with envelopes. I passed the packs over to the eager monsters - ahem, children - and let them go wild. They've made cards for friends and cards for family and cards for fun. They mostly enjoy stuffing the cards into the envelopes.

Marisa spent some time matching the cards up like puzzle pieces.

Each pack of cards cost me $1.00, so it wasn't a very costly loss. Plus, I just happen to have dozens of packs of cards around the house from my card making obsession that occurred last year. They are just sitting in a box not being used right now... This is a good way to use them.

I am a card addict and have to restrain myself from buying them. I "treated" myself to some very cute blank cards just the other day. I plan on doing a little old fashioned thinking of you mailing in the near future.
