I am so grateful for 2 (about to be 3) snow days in a row. I started out my Christmas crafting and shopping relatively early this year but I forgot to factor in the pregnancy. I've been really feeling it and my energy for making things, other than a baby, has been dramatically reduced. I already axed a few projects and I thought I was going to have to ax a few more but these snow/ice days are saving me.
While I can't post much in the way of pictures without ruining Christmas presents, I thought I'd link to a couple of useful tips for another "wrappers" out there.
--Here's my wrapping and shipping tips from a couple of years ago. I still stand by all of it--especially if you're giving gifts to friends far away.
--I love finding unique (free!) gift tags on the internets and printing them out. I especially love these happy little faces from The Small Object and these critters from Camilla Engman.
--Environmentally-friendly gift wrap alternatives.
--Some year I will use furoshiki, the Japanese method of wrapping gifts in fabric. In fact, I think a whole stack of reuseable fabric gift wraps/bags would be a wonderful gift to get or give. Hmmm...maybe next year.
