Using up some retired stock

Because the weather has been so wintry and I have virtually been housebound I thought that I would make some more cards for our local nursing home. They are always in need of Birthday, Easter, Christmas, Sympathy, Mothers and Fathers Day cards for their residents. I make a box full of cards over a couple of months plus others from my stash that I have had for a little while and take them to the diversional therapist, and when the 'ressies' need cards then they go through the appropriate box and choose what they like. I also donate 100 Christmas cards every year to go with their gifts from the DT's office. I love being able to do something for the oldies and they are all ever so happy to see you and eager for you to sit and listen to their stories.  What better way to use up retired stock, it is a sure fire way to put a big smile on so many faces. I will share some more tomorrow, bye for now
