I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to wrap Christmas presents. For my BFF Janet this year, I used some vintage wrapping paper that I found at the thrift store. I just love old wrapping paper, the designs are so fabulous. For a tag I used one of these old office file labels that I picked up at a yard sale this past summer and blogged about here. I had no idea at the time what exactly I would do with them but they were neat and came in a box lot of junk. It gives them a second chance in life and I love second chances. I consider it my contribution to recycling! One the second present I used one of my vintage-style ornament cones as an embellishment, they're just too darn cute!
I wrapped ALL of my presents today. It took me over 3 hours. That has got to be worth something when I guilt hubby with my annual holiday speech which starts off with something like... "Do you KNOW how much work goes into decorating, gift picking and purchasing, wrapping...."
p.s. It's snowing here. Are you surprised?
