'Twas The Night before Christmas.....

...... and after spending all day at work wrapping presents non-stop for customers, you would think I could not bear to wrap another present! Well guess what? I spent all evening wrapping presents at home too. Not just presents from me to those I love, but my sons also dropped off  their presents to get wrapped.

these are Ted's presents for the family
The colour theme this year is Blue/Red/White with touches of silver.  I bought my wrapping paper (the best quality) last year at the sales and the crazy thing is that I forgot about the paper but somehow I still picked the colours for this year and the paper was just right.

I found this idea on Pinterest- instead of using tags, to use monograms.  My computer is not really up to the minute when it comes to programming so there was a bit of 'faffing' around but I am quite happy with how it looks

Sitting here, writing this post, I have just realised that I have forgotten a couple of presents from the back of my wardrobe.  Guess the wrapping isn't over yet.

 I didn't forget my work pals and made up these quick presents using votive holders from Ikea and filling with chocolates, Jaffas and mint leaves.  Looks so pretty......then all wrapped up in cellophane. Fortunately, I did this a few days ago.

I will be taking a week away from blogging so I will take this time to wish you all, my dear blogging friends, a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!



  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours! I, as usual, have yet to wrap one gift. Ugh.
