Yippee! Found some blank ones which have been edged with a Bottle Adirondack and a stencil brush.
Well, let’s just keep it simple.
Out with the little Christmas rounds.
Stamped them randomly on the tags in Bottle.
Then dug out our custom Christmas stamps.
Remember when we had a special TV show
just for these personalised stamps?
Very popular they are too!
Here’s an idea for wrapping text round a circle:
Decided to use the Ho Ho Ho from the Jumper set here!
Simple. Very simple.
But they have a function, so I’m not going to spend an age
making little Tag Masterpieces!
I spent a good portion of my younger life
writing on the wrapping paper with a Sharpie Pen,
so this is progress!
Faded snowflakes here and there…
Now all I need to do is go buy the gifts to hang on them!
Last week, I did actually have a run at buying some presents.
I was in Marks & Spencers in the food dept looking for things for my parents’ hamper. I was just checking out the shelves for some special things when I noticed an elderly lady studying the little boxes of chocolates. She was clearly struggling with the prices and was picking a box up, putting it down, looking at another box, putting it back. Going back to the first one.
Big reality check for me. I couldn’t do anything. To buy a box for her would have been inappropriate and presumptuous.
But that little glimpse into another person’s world was a massive dose of humility for me.
I’ve been thinking about the elderly lady all week, and it has not only right-sized my spending, but made me very grateful. I remember all too well struggling to stretch the pennies at Christmas.
So Panic Saturday? Give me a break!!!!
