Here's an idea that was started by my friend Toki: Take all those old cards you've been saving but probably won't ever send. Put them in a shoebox and pass them to a friend. Ask her to take out what she likes, put in what she's ready to get rid of from her own stash, and pass them on to another friend. I like it! And I love a hand-written card.
I have also heard about friends who scour their closets for things they've been hanging onto but haven't worn in a year or more...wrong color, wrong fit, you spent too much on it, someone gave it to you... and they bring their stuff to a ladies night and swap their stuff! The great part is that you get to go home with a little wardrobe upgrade for free! We do this informally among friends around here.

Anyhow, I am nursing a sore throat today and don't feel up to more writing. But when I do, think of all these (pictured are just a small sampling) cards I will have to choose from! Happy recycling with friends!
