I hate wrapping present too. I can never make mine look pretty. Hope you have a great week.

My kids picked out most of their gifts this year. I'm considering not wrapping them at all.

The trick to not wrapping is GIFT BAGS. I have done that in a pinch on the years I refuse to wrap.

Bella's little devil horns? Whatever!
Sorry you didn't win the challenge I thought the cards were lovely.

Hope you get to do some traveling.It would be fun to see Italy all decked out for Christmas.

I hope the play goes well. Verona sounds wonderful!

I hardly ever win them crafting challenges. I even applied for dt positions for three blogs and haven't heard anything. I think my work is too simple for some blogs. So, now I just do it to keep me motivated.

I HATE wrapping gifts! Yuck!

Bella is older, it will be better:)

I hope you get to travel a little - you need to see the sights while you are "over there!".

...and we should have a contest... I absolutely suck at wrapping things... I bet I'm worse than you.

maybe sometime we will live close enough that we can do a trade off...you do my cards...I wrap your gifts.

I'll bet Bella did GREAT! Only eleven days til Christmas. I am in sooooo much trouble! Glad the sun is finally shining down on you.

Hi Jeannie, I am the absolute sloppiest gift wrapper of all times. I'm glad I read your sticky notes tonight. I was wondering if Alex would get a Christmas card if I sent it to where she is in basic training. I sent her a card several weeks ago so I'll do a Christmas one too. I know how you feel about not hearing. I have a daughter who doesn't communicate much. She's ok, just busy. I'm sure basic is taking all the energy Alex can muster.

Love your notes....
Thinking of you!!!

I love wrapping presents. It's the finding the time that causes a problem. (i should be writing out Christmas cards tonight instead of reading blogs too)

I sent a Christmas card off to Alex. I hope the cards she's receiving are helping her deal with Christmas away from her family.

I hope Bella's play went off without a hitch and she had a wonderful performance. (i hope her devil horns stayed under cover)

Hope you get time to see the sights of Verona. Sounds like a picture-taking event to me. :)

My Christmas tree is still in the box in the storage shed. Will hopefully get it up sometime Sunday. I did manage to hang the wreath on my front door last night, tho.

Your cards are really nice. Keep up the good work. Pleasing yourself can never go wrong.

Very cool Post it notes...how on earth do you make that happen. Is there a template or something? Sounds like life is busy...don't give up on the challenges and definitely create what makes you happy!
