....THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG....BUT NOT BEFORE THE PRESENTS WERE WRAPPED...

...


A few of you today, heard me on twitter and FB, asking, or actually begging for some help with my Christmas gift wrapping. I have to take extreme effort to psyche myself up for this monumental task. It is all about the organization ...and believe me, I'm a  fairly organized person, but gift wrapping is truly a pain in the butt and back for me...NOT kidding. I require all the players to be lined up accordingly before I begin.

Here is my dilemma...


YIKES...I'm only showing you this picture so that you may understand my frustration with gift wrapping. I have all the accoutrements required for the task, BUT haphazard organization. If this is my gift wrapping area...where does the gift perch to get gussied up and how can I sort through this mayhem?

While finishing off my Christmas shopping today....yes it is done, finito...woohoo for me....I was wondering how to tackle the task of gift wrapping so that at the end I would be sane and my normal chipper self.

Enter my brilliant idea....


.... a plastic garbage can you say...



... and I say yes...but with these added....


...becomes this.....can you see where I'm going?...


....and then morphs into this......hellllloooooo!!!!


...with a designated spot for these.....


....and for these too....wait though...another brilliant idea is coming to fruition....


....it looks messy, I know, but each ribbon end is pulled through a different slot. If this goes as planned I can possibly keep them from unravelling onto each other.

I now have one strong plastic container for rolls of paper and attached to that, containers holding assorted ribbons, scissors, pens and tape in their precise spots, and one rectangular  8"deep plastic bin large enough for tissue to lay flat. I'm am taking over the dining room table, where I can enjoy the fire, Christmas music and a glass of red vino so that my marathon Christmas gift wrapping may begin in hopes that our gifts will look like these....


....by late tomorrow!

MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANUKKAH, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
