Howard and I got started on wrapping our Christmas gifts last night. I have been fantasizing about wrapping paper this year. I’ve done sketches. Prowled the internet for ideas. Made multiple trips to Michael’s just to “browse.” In the end I decided on a charming classic = butcher paper + candy cane ribbon + green bows. Two small kinks appeared in my very specific plan and are pictured below:
I’ll admit that I probably should have given the free paper more of a central roll (*pun*) in our wrapping plans, but I got so attached to the butcher-candy-cane-green-bow idea that I just couldn’t let it go.
So, I decided to make monogrammed letters out of the free rolls (like the “A,” above.) In protest, Howard did all of his wrapping with the free paper. He plowed through SIX gifts last night while I tended to just three.
Even in the midst of our various fulfilled and unfulfilled expectations, I think our work so far is purdy
