It turns out that my Mom was way ahead of the recycling bandwagon. For years and years my Mom (and sister too) has been making Christmas Scrapbooks out of Christmas cards. (as always, click on pictures to make them bigger)
I believe the scrapbooks were originally the brainchild of a dear family friend, Bevy, and my Mom has improved a few verses and tweaked the layouts a bit. The books are actually alphabet books about Christmas and each verse has "scenes" to go along with the theme.
The books turn out beautiful and are just lovely to browse through. I think that any child my Mom makes one for should count themselves as lucky!
P.S. Friends far and wide give my Mom their Christmas cards to use. However, I'm not sure what's going to happen since picture cards have become so very popular. Fortunately, she has hundreds of cards as backup!
