My mother’s birthday is tomorrow, so I’ve still got a couple of gifts to wrap. The wrapped gifts is really my favorite part of Christmas. I haven’t yet given up wrap, but I do try to recycle as many ribbons as I can. This year we used saved ribbons augmented with some curling ribbon, and paper left from last year (new), but we didn’t have tons of presents to do. I then grab all the salvageable ribbon as gifts get unwrapped.
On Christmas Eve a package arrived from Amazon. I thought perhaps it was something my husband had ordered for me to give him, so I ripped the package open only to discover a book from my fabulous assistant. I don’t like to open gifts early and I would have left it if I’d know it was for me, so as I was wrapping other gifts, I just wrapped it up. I was trying to use up paper so I used two patterns. I always buy coordinated paper, so it worked.
