Here is the video to explain.
How stinkin' cute is he!
Oh, and let me clarify that I am as DONE as I can be at the moment. Here let me explain:
These are gifts for family members, not of this house hold. I still need to get my Pink Lemonade bag for Stacey, My Mom's carwash GC and Hubby's stuff which I am still mulling over.
Then there are these presents all for those in this house, Mostly of the kiddo kind. I haven't got the pet's gifts because they will eat through the paper...And Yes I did buy myself a sweater and wrapped it.Then we have the ones hidden under the table because snoopers will recognize the box. I haven't yet gotten ALL the gifts from "Santa" yet because I never know what they'll ask for and I must get at least one thing they ask Santa for. I can only prep them so much..."Well, I thought you were asking for blah blah blah..."
"No, I want that for my birfday...I want Santa to bring this."
Santa has a headache.
So we come to this pile. It's the Birthday stash. You see Butter is December 27. Roo is January 1. I do get things after Christmas on clearance like I told you before, BUT there are things I can't risk waiting to pick up. I wrap as soon as it comes in the door, so I'm not swamped days before Christmas. I am available for hire. I require very little. Scotch Tape and nice wrapping paper, none of that thin stuff! And I love bows and ribbons I love doing pretty. But Pretty around here is NOT appreciated, so I slap on a sticker tag and make sure the name is LARGE.
Now for the Christmas cards. I MADE them, yes. But the letter is in final print and we haven't gotten our picture taken yet. Nor have I addressed the envelopes yet. I made 40 cards. That is all I'm sending. I'm not making anymore.Yes, I do know I can buy some. But the crafting keeps me busy and adds meaning to my life people. It's laundry, and pull-ups and Barbies and matchbox cars and dust bunnies and dead mice and car breaking down and dishes....I need meaning!
