Wrapping Christmas Presents

I thought I'd squeeze in one more post before the BIG day.  And, this time, I wanted to tell you about another of my great loves.....  wrapping Christmas presents!!!

Wrapping gifts at any other time of year is just a chore.  No fun at all!  My love is strictly reserved for wrapping CHRISTMAS gifts.  I've always loved this job - and everyone who knows me knows it!  My Dad has had me wrapping his presents for my mom since I was 10 years old!!!  Do I mind???  Not one bit.  In fact, I think I'd be rather offended if he didn't ask one year.

What's more fun than setting up your own North-Pole-style Christmas workshop on a winter's evening, and filling it with presents, papers, bows, tags, Christmas tunes, and a nice cup of tea and a mince pie (or two)?!?  I like to take my time over it, and spread the fun over several nights.    

Now my work's all done, and my workshop's closed down until next December.  

Here's my final batch of wrapping, waiting to be sent off to Santa Claus (for sleigh-loading).....

Before I go, I just want to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!  I hope your stockings'll be filled with crafty treats on Christams morning.....
