Now that my Monday thing is going to be this Vlog/Blog link, here is what I have vlogged about this week; I have been chatting about gift wrapping solutions.
Wrapping is not just about paper
I did a post about present wrapping on the blog last Christmas, in which I mentioned the furoshiki cloths I picked up in Japan – and subsequently ‘put somewhere safe’…so safe I can’t currently find them… but it is fine, the vlog offers a few more material based suggestions for those of us who don’t currently have access to a Japanese 100 Yen shop.
Luckily, 2017 Polly had the forethought to grab a load of gift bags in the sales, so I am pretty much set for all the gifts that are going elsewhere, while the kids each have a box with all of their gifts in. My kids are now at an age where they are quite hard to buy for; I can’t get away with small toys anymore and I am opposed to tat, but that doesn’t really leave me a great deal to buy. They will be getting a box of food goodies too, and money for clothes as I don’t want to get that wrong! They will need something tidy to wear to my Mum’s on Christmas Day, so I have been searching for that, but buy and large, I am finished shopping.
This means I should have time to try out my experimental paper/ sewing idea – which may potentially go terribly wrong, so keep tuned for the results of that later in the week!
Be sure to check out the vlog and I will see you tomorrow for more Christmas blogging!
