wrap it up

Thing 1 and I set up a wrapping station in Thing G’s old room.
We moved the desk to the middle of the room and sorted gifts into bags so we’d know what’s up.

All the wrapping paper, ribbons and bows on the bed ready to make things merry and bright.

Wayne and I are kindred spirits.

And one of my most favorite things about Christmas is wrapping gifts!
I love to create beautiful packages for the people I love.

Husband N asked me if there is one, what is the word that means to create something just to then destroy it.
I actually don’t know if there is or what it might be.
He then told me my Christmas gifts are the perfect example.
You know, he’s kind of right.
I make them because it pleases me to give gorgeous gifts to my family. I don’t care if they get ripped up and destroyed in the opening. Because they’re beautiful in the meantime and that’s what matters to me.
You’ll see…

  1. Funny I am not very good at wrapping gifts, and like gift bags that you can just tape shut. The observation you made that about giving gorgeous gifts reminded me of monks who visited here. There was about 10 of them and they spent nearly two weeks or maybe less making a sand mandala. My son went and visited them and watched. It is a slow, laborious process and intricate is certainly an applicable word. At the end they have a beautiful mandala, all different colours and patterns – amazing. I thought 1000 piece puzzles were a lot of work before I saw this. Then they wipe it all off the table. You might want to google Tibetan Sand Mandala. Hugs!
