holiday traditions exchange

December 12th, 2007

My holiday traditions exchange is all wrapped up and ready to go.  I’d love to show you what’s in all those packages, but you’ll have to wait until my partner gets it.   Meanwhile you’ll have to look at the fabulous vintage wrapping paper I used.  Isn’t it fabulous?  There are only scraps left, but I cut some of the pictures out and glued them on white cardstock. And there you go: all my christmas cards made.  Now I just have to write them, address them, wrangle my children and take a picture of them, and get them to the post office.  Truth be told, they will probably end up being new years cards, because I’m slowly loosing steam.  Back to the wrapping paper.  I got this roll and two others at St. Vinny’s last year: one is printed with carriages and the other cute angels.  The angels are just a little too cute for me, so I’d thought I’d pass it on.  I don’t know how vintage it is, but the paper is sturdy and new.  If you like it, leave a comment and I’ll send it tomorrow when I go to the post office.

    i’m jealous – i’m out of steam and i don’t have even children! my kraft paper wrap is looking a little sad. your gifts — those wrapped and those we’ve seen — are gorgeous!

    so cute! that paper is such a great find! it reminds of my grandmother’s cautions to open my wrapping paper carefully and save the good ones (instead i tore it to shreds). I vividly remember a really quaint paperdoll printed paper she wrapped a present in. man, i wish i had that now!

    when the elementary schools do fundraisers and sell wrapping paper, be sure to buy some. the last time I bought wrapping paper through one of them, it was a nice thick “old-fashioned” type paper. quality.
