Well, it’s nearly here… I’m tired of the count down and really, really ready for Christmas morning. I have a feeling that it’s going to be a good one… the boys are anxious for Santa’s arrival, I pulled some favors & scored some surprises, plus there is rumor of a WHITE CHRISTMAS here in Weston MO.
So now to the GIFT WRAPPING… let me tell you that I am not a good wrapper, I stick with newspaper & tags and leave the fancy-schmancy stuff for the experts. But those experts have some realllly good ideas that even I could pull off ~~ check ‘em out. Holler if you have any ideas of your own!!

These images from Calla Magazine are ideas for using Kraft paper which I have used in the past. They suggest krinkling it up, then ironing it back out with your hands for a textured look. I LOVE IT!!
