Picture The Holidays - Day 20
Gift wrapping has always been a last minute thing for me and I must admit that most of the time I adorn my packages with hastily fastened and notoriously unsticky bows sold in bulk from Wal-mart. Gift tags were usually fashioned out of scraps of paper left over, folded to make a flimsy card. Sometimes I just write the name directly on the paper.
Why go to all that trouble when its going to be obliterated in five seconds flat anyway? Since I always seem to wait until the last minute, its not even like I can enjoy looking at the packages all season long.
Not this year. Ok, I am pretty much waiting until the last minute and today's image is the ONLY package I've wrapped thus far. But, I wrapped it with love and artistic intentions.
Still too practical to make a big investment in future trash, I used stuff I already had around the house, so it didn't cost me anything - a ribbon off a package sent to us by a vendor at work, the gift card I created for the "Got Gifts" prompt, paper left over from last year and a couple of decorative picks that I had in my box of Christmas decorations.
Would it be bad form to ask for the picks back so I can use them again next year? :)
