Tiny Tags

Hi everyone! I'm just putzing around tonite, procrastinating wrapping my Christmas gifts. I was telling a friend the other day that I LOVE the shopping for the gifts, but HATE the wrapping of the gifts, because I always turn a simple thing into a big production. Sometimes my gift wrapping is better than the gift inside!

.

Some of you may know that I've been painting my living room and dining room. I've spent so much time at Menards, I think the clerks all know my name. I had a frenzied moment on my last trip there, because I wandered past the Christmas gift wrap and gasped when I saw my FAVORITE red polka dot (ala Daisy D's) paper there! And on sale for $1.39 a roll! OMG! 4 rolls later, I have enough wrap to polka dot everyone's birthday, Christmas, Mothers Day, Anniversary, Wedding, (you get the picture) gifts. I might just wrap my couch in it too, if I have time.




ANYWAY, I had some smaller gifts to wrap, so I putzed with Crafty Secret's Christmas Mail Stamp set, and came up with these little plaid tags to match my polka dot wrap. I used some Melissa Frances Mica flakes to glue snow under Santa's little butt.






Now if I could get my self to wrap some more gifts instead of blogging, I'd be in business. .

Gorgeous color on your living room walls. We've been painting here, too. Foyer and dining room are 98.5% done. We're doing den and living room the week after Christmas! Doesn't it feel great? Hope that you have a beautiful Christmas! Hugs!
