we had a lovely day today. it was wonderful taking a day off from searching for a home. we turned our hotel room into a peacefully festive environment. it was just right for us. here is one example of our creative gift wrapping/card making soiree last night. we took over the common room for our packaging blitz.
scout's brilliant packaging perfectly matched what was inside. i go through band aids like an elephant goes through peanuts. and now i shall do it in style.
last night's post included a night time photo of our little make do set up. here it is after we'd opened most of the gifts. we couldn't reach the tub with scout's miniature silver tree but we were thrilled to find mr. snowman and scout's purple strand of lights that is usually entwined in her headboard.
are you a fan of delicious flavors? and psych? we are. isn't scout clever with the pineapple present? and it smells great, too. we'll get ev working on cutting it up soon. that should be interesting given he'll only have plastic knives! i just told ev and he said: that's going to be exciting. indeed.
we had a yankee swap. our mission was to find two gifts valued under $5 for the swap. scout chose this one of mine first. it was calling to her since last night. can you guess what it holds? she was very pleased that she'd chosen it. not much of a hint. just a fact.
here you see all of our hard, but fun, work. these are our packages en toto last night out on the common room table before we gathered them up and brought them back to our room for mr. snowman to watch over all night. i hope your christmas or hanukkah was a happy one. can you believe that there are just six short days left for my daily creative posts before i reach my goal. wow. by the way, do not pay attention to the dates on the blog because it is still set for central time and i can't find the setting. but rest assured these are all posted before midnight here in sunny california.
sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
