Gift wrapping is one of my little pleasures. I almost get more of a kick at wrapping Christmas parcels than I do unwrapping them. I love the sense of anticipation and seeing them all in a beautiful heap.
So even though I have been wrapping empty boxes this week, I've been having a lot of fun doing it.
One of our customers wanted to know if I had any bright ideas for eco-wrapping. So I offered to lend her my dummy packages for the local Carbon Cutters eco-Christmas event. And give her the link to the tutorial for making gift bows from magazine pages.
I was tempted to go the whole hog and offer to wrap parcels to order too, but the length of my own 'to do' list made me keep my lips shut. The shop Christmas window is due to go up on Sunday. I've been sewing snowflakes like there's no tomorrow.
And I have the rest of a cardboard fireplace to construct. I think I may have missed my vocation, but vacancies for Santa's elves are few and far between.
