The tree was surrounded by presents to and from friends and family. If it's from us, then it was wrapped by me. And it will have been fairly hastily wrapped because I'm still reeling from how long it takes and how little time I set aside to actually do it all. I know, you'd think by now that I'd manage to remember...but somehow, Christmas memories are not really made of all the work that goes into it are they?!
So you get the general picture...everything is done, albeit a little hastily. From where you stand, you can't see the loose ends. Imagine then gentle reader, the squirming embarrassment I feel at receiving gifts from friends that are wrapped so as to really reflect the treasures within...just look at these.
Now see what arrived from Debbie....posted, swathed in a tissue filled box .
Gah, I've just noticed that I haven't re-tied the Deer's bow tie....sorry Debbie, I know it'll be the first thing you notice...but believe me, no-one else will until they read this bit! And the box is a joy, hand made and professional.
Turning wrapping into something more than that which I manage. Taking the thought of the gift right to the outside and displaying the care. I love it. Just as ideas for gift giving they really are inspirational aren't they. And to the likes of me, totally aspirational.
