The New Year

Last week I was in our local news paper.
The story was creative gift wrapping.

I had gobs of black tulle leftover from Halloween
so I wrapped a bottle of champagne in the tulle and tied it together with a white ribbon.

I thought it would make a nice hostess gift for a party.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

What was your favorite gift?

Any memorable experiences that will remain ingrained in your memory forever?

After all the gifts were open at my house all I could think was,
"We did out part in giving the American economy a boost".
Now where do we put all of our new stuff?


  1. I'm wondering the same thing with the additional challenge of a quick tear down of all things Christmas so we can hop on a plane in a few days and head back south. Happy New Year! xo

  2. Like this wrapping, so elegant. Favorite gift, a carved owl pendant from a local artist the superhero got for me. xox Corrine

  3. That's a fabulous wrapping idea, Jill! I knew you could come up with amazing things for the article. Congratulations!

  4. What I enjoyed the most over the holiday were the cards, all filled with love sent to me by friends and family. Wishing you light and peace as we enter 2012. Jane
