Brown paper packages

... tied up with string. I've been busy wrapping the last of the Christmas presents. This year I decided to go for the old fashioned look with brown paper and string, with only the tags adding a little bit of colour. There's been a couple of comments as to have I gone eco-friendly or am I trying to save money but no it was a conscious fashion/art decision. Most other people have loved the idea. So crafting has gone by the board apart from the tags, for the last couple of days. Well a girl has to get a hair cut, have the car serviced and donate blood.

As usual my to-do list is still outstanding and includes writing some more Christmas cards, making a few last minute cards (nothing like a little bit of pressure), wrapping and posting a present and a magazine commission for Beautiful Cards.

In my advent swap I continue to be wowed on a daily basis and have received another brilliant Rhonna Farrer stamp. I can see this butterfly featuring on those spring birthday cards. I can see them stamped onto acetate and painted with H2O's using the special spray from Once Upon A Stamp, for a great look.

And look at this quilling, when you realise the smallest tree is only 1/2 cm tall you can see the talent of the wonderful Jen - you're a star.
