    I can't throw away my birthday, Mother day and other special cards from my husband and children. How can I do something with them?

      Make a scrap book for each person using the cards & photos that you have received from them & photos that have both you & them together. Also include notes about memories that you have shared with them. These scrapbooks will someday make be great gifts to them.
