I am heading over to your etsy shop. I am really liking the journal I spy on your sidebar.

Have fun wrapping!

Still have lots to do and a tummy bug caught me yesterday! UGH! Going to try and get myself together and finish wrapping the gifts. Pray this will be just a lil bug and leave quickly!
Have a very blessed Christmas.

I am almost done wrapping, but most had to be mailed, so didn't have a choice!! Love to wrap with really different papers and such. I wrapped one little package with sheet music and tied with red twine. It was so pretty!! Thanks for the info. about the paper cutter...going shopping today so will see if Wallyworld has one. Merry Christmas!

Aside from finding the right gifts for my family, wrapping gifts is my favorite part of the holiday. I LOVE paper. I LOVE ribbons.

Enjoy your wrapping!

Lori...Your cuteness and always cheery ways are so inspiring!...And what a pretty photo! I wish I could come to your wrapping party! ;) I've been baking all day and it's not going as well as I thought it would! I made up this gigantic batch of chocolate chip cookie dough, and I'm mixing and mixing and mixing (I mean a BIG batch using my largest blender bowl) and I'm wondering why on earth the dough isn't really coming together. So I figure, okay, I'll just make these cookies really big like hamburger size...so I'm smooshing and pressing and I finally get one cookie tray in the oven. After I start smooshing together another batch, a light bulb goes off and I realize I forgot to add the four eggs to the cookie dough. I reread that recipe over and over too!.... How about you bake...and I'll wrap! hee hee hee! xoxo ;D

Oh my goodness!

I can only imagine how much fun you are having this time of year! So much creativity towards making gifts for love ones! I just know you are having a really good time!

Enjoy yourself! Those at the receiving end will be so appreciative of you! You are a really sweetheart of a person. We all know your giving is truly heartfelt and sincere :).

I love wrapping and ribbons...It's all in the presentation! Thank you for your beautiful card and well wishes, I shall save it and post it in my studio, I love your work!

I have a few things to still wrap. I love to put the Christmas music on and sing along as I wrap. Good luck with all your wrapping. I like your ideas around being creative with the wrapping and using items around the house...I've wrapped in brown paper bags and stamped Christmas creations on them. I love using jute instead of ribbon.

Even your gift wrapping session sounds cheerful. Your set-up is perfect (mega-choices of supplies, festive music,hot chocolate), and I hope that you enjoyed it all.
