|Tags from 2010|
As I'm sure I've said too many times to count, one of the times that I am happiest and feel most peaceful and content is when I can take time to work at my little glass-topped crafting desk.

On Tuesday evening, I was able to attend our local Christmas Club at a friend's home. One of the things we did at the meeting was to make tags out of our Christmas cards. I brought along my templates and a couple of paper punches, plus some silver cord and bakers twine. Crochet cotton in red or green works well too. I was able to make tags from about 2/3 of the cards I'd brought, at the meeting.

What I really need to do, of course, is clear out space in our own filing cabinet to make those folders fit in there. And I should begin the project this very day! We will see.
But back to yesterday. I removed some folders and found space to measure and cut the tags, then punch holes at the top and string through a length of cord. There was even room on the desk for a mug of tea, and as I worked, big snowflakes were drifting lazily down. Ah! Thirty minutes or so of wonderful mental health therapy. I need to make time to do something like this more often! Here is some of the result:
Do you make tags from your used Christmas cards, or utilize them in crafting some other way?
