Welcome Sally - I hope you're not going to catch up on the whole blog! It'll take you ages.

I've been helping FC to wrap presents using material which can be reused each year. We decided that it's quite a difficult task but the presents look very luxurious when wrapped. The material of course came from the CS. The ribbon was marked down after a Christmas a couple of years ago. The tags are homemade.

Penguin looked on.


  1. I like the idea of the fabric wrapping. This year I have used some shoe boxes covered in wrapping paper and will put several things together and carefully wrapped in tissue paper. It's certainly made things easier with the odd shaped gifts.
    I've found the tree. These are getting quite difficult.

  2. Hi Mum thats quite a long list to do in one day - Good Luck xxx

  3. Good idea for reusing wrapping. I always try and reuse packaging from parcels etc. My to-do list is just as long as yours,,, don't know where to start. Seen the tree!!!

  4. Sounds like you'll be having a busy day. The presents look fab, a great idea to use fabric which can be reused. I found the tree.
