All wrapped up

I may have mentioned before......that one of the few things I hate about christmas is all the wrapping......I love the look of beautifully wrapped presents.......but am c**p at it myself.....and so tend to leave it til the last minute......and then just hate it even more!!!
Not this year......my wrapping was done really early......because DD1 had a day off work and wanted to get her wrapping done.......and it seemed like it might be more fun to wrap along with someone else.....and it was......though the wrapping itself still looks awful......and it turns out it must be hereditary......because DD1 is rubbish at it as well!!!

I just wrote my journaling about wrapping this morning. Hope to finally get some photos today. Unlike you, I love wrapping and this year I've enjoyed it more than usual. Great page--love the gift embellishment and the photo!

That is so funny!! I LOVE to wrap! In fact, I'm disappointed when I'm done. I usually spend an evening making the bows while I'm watching tv. Then, I set aside time to wrap. I put on a Christmas movie and just enjoy the process. In fact, I've donated my wrapping services as auction items for local charities!

I'm afraid I like wrapping too! My Dad hates it though. Mum found him in my bedroom a few weeks ago when I was away at uni. He said he was trying pick up the Abi wrapping vibes!

We enjoy the gift wrapping here! So glad to see you got it all done early this year.

Ha! I'm rubbish at it as well. Most of my parcels end up looking like someone has sat on them. And sellotape? what is it with that stuff? It hates me..

Like you I hate wrapping and have had two mammoth bursts this year as I have over 40 presents to wrap and that is without Gracia and David's! Only two left for tonight and that's because I ran out of paper.

Am loving the pages of your journal x
