I'm wrapping Christmas presents today. I love to receive a beautifully wrapped package and one of my favorite things about the holidays is that I get to wrap several boxes and embellish them with ribbon and ornaments and sometimes even candy!

It has to be the craftiest thing I do. I can't operate a glue gun to save my life. I can't do needlework of any sort. I can't sew beyond a straight line. It is a challenge to replace buttons on shirts. But, I can wrap a mean package and curl ribbon with the best of them.

Needless to say, I usually restock my supply box the day after Christmas. I will go toe to toe with all the other post holiday shoppers at Target and Hobby Lobby to buy discounted paper, ribbon, tissue etc. I won't be able to do that this year...I'll be in Paris (aww...poor Liz:)) but I think if I watch the sales I can score some new fripperies next year after Thanksgiving.

So, rainy day go ahead and try to get me down, I'm wrapping today!
