Brown paper packages

Thank you for all your comments about the ornament swap. It was truly a wonderful experience.

Last night I want to our church Christmas carols. It was amazing! But it was also pouring down with rain. It's a good thing we had ours indoors. I had a few videos but they aren't playing on my comp for some reason. There was another random video I wanted to share but not working :(

Anyway, most of my gifts are wrapped and it's pretty much all wrapped with brown paper. I really love the look of it. So here's a few photos.


The gifts under the tree. The one in front with red string is one of my gifts from Jason. I have an inkling of what it is :p (and finally some beautiful sunlight!)


A bit of a close up. The one on the left in the front is from my lovely Laura. 


My packaging for the gifts for some of my girls. 

And I just had to add this YouTube video.


These guys are from my church and they won a competition to open for Bon Jovi at the Brisbane concert a few days ago. This song is awesome! Definitely take the time to listen to them, The Smart. (I hate that YouTube videos always get cut off on my blog). 

Have a wonderful week! The countdown to Christmas begins :)

I love brown paper packaging too, simple yet effective, especially with a little ribbon added x

These are so, so beautiful! Isn't it amazing the ease with which one can dress up a little brown paper package? I really love the way you tied with lace. I've had this small length of lace sitting around my apartment for a year, waiting for just the right use. And now I know what I'll use it for. :)

Happy, happy holidays my dear swap partner! :)

Brown paper packages tied up with string or pretty lace ribbon from you are just gorgeous!

I hope you have a lovely week planned in the run up to the big day.

Sweet and Simple!!! Beautiful packaging.... We received your Christmas Card!!! It is adorable!!!! My sister tried to take it home with her it's so cute!!!! Thank you sweet girl. I sent your Christmas card and a little something- I really hope it doesn't get opened and nothing goes missing ;). Eeeeeee....5 days left till Christmas!!! Oh! I forget your one day ahead!!! So 4 days left till Christmas!!!! It's crazy how time went by to fast!!! I've been told that New York schools are somewhat crazy!!! And really they leave the schools open so late and no one goes - Miguelitos last day will be on the 22nd! I've always wondered what a summer Christmas is like? I'm so used to my cold Christmases ;) Hope your having a great week - xoxo
