The only thing I hate worse than shopping is wrapping presents! I finally broke down and bought Christmas paper at Albertson's a couple of weeks ago.
Today I had to pick up a small gift for a gift exchange at Ginger's employee party tonight. No, I'm not an employee, but I guess they felt like they had to invite me since I'm always hanging around there! LOL. Anyway, I headed over to this cute little gift shop a couple of miles from my house, and there was a cuter shop next door to that one. So I bopped in there and found something. And a gift for another friend while I was in there.
Anyway, I got home and pulled out my wrapping paper. I'm good to go. Uh oh, do I have Scotch tape? I dug and dug and finally came up with some. Whew! So I get this thing wrapped on the kitchen counter because every other surface in the house has a project on it. I kind of bunched up the paper on the ends because I just can't seem to get those corners to miter like everyone else can. Okay, it's done.
Oh, no, I don't have any ribbon. No use looking because I know I don't have any.
But I've got a pinking rotary cutter. And I've got lots of red stash! Voila!!!
So now I've got something to report on Sunday's stashbusting report. Two inches of red fabric!!! :) :) :) And no fabric purchases -- well, none for me!
Jane will be here in a bit and we're off to see the Nutcracker ballet. It's over at Claremont Colleges. Since that's a block or two away from my hair salon (yes, Beth, I did get a dip and clip this morning!), I wandered around through the campus until I found the auditorium where it will be held. That campus is so beautiful.
Then from the ballet, we'll be going to Ginger's for the party. I swannee, I'm turning into a regular party animal! LOL
~ Easy shopping this morning
~ Putting tape on my shopping list
~ Putting Estroven on my shopping list! :)
~ Finally feeling almost normal, except for the hives that found me after Applique Club on Thursday night. I wonder what I nibbled on that did that to me. :(
~ Daisy discovering wrapping paper cut-aways. And making a mess!
