How to Wrap with WallpaperDecember 3rd, 2008 in blog
Every year I look for new and innovative ways to wrap my gifts. Actually, I guess I should say old ways to wrap. Ha! Any hoo, these wallpaper scraps set the wheels in motion for this holiday season. To simplify things I choose a color scheme for each person who will be at the grand opening of gifts on Christmas morning. This way I don't have to tag them as the recipients can just look for their own special color. This year we have a new member of the PJs only squad. Hannah, my son’s girlfriend will be joining us. Looks like things are getting pretty serious. Do I hear junk wedding bells? No pressure kids, I've only been waiting over 20 years to do a JUNKMARKET Style wedding! Sorry, the thought of a wedding made me lose my train of thought.
Back to the wrapping. I thought since Hannah would be on board this year I would start a new tradition for the ladies of the house. Obviously the color selection has been set by the wallpaper samples and ribbons. Elizabeth is gold, Laura green, and Hannah a pinkish orange. I chose ornaments from my collection to use in lieu of bows. Aren't these ornaments to-die-for beautiful! I love the fact that they are made from garbage...tin can tops. The ornaments are extra special gifts for the girls. They are given with love from me to them. From this year forward I will select an ornament for each of them from my box of goodies to give them a start on their own beautiful trees. New beginnings!
