  6. The colourful wrapping and the ribbons increase the curiosity and surprise that lay within. There is not person in the world who doesn't like to receive these packaged surprises.Lovely haiku.

I wondered if I was wrong to take this route...but that is honestly where my mind went first! LOL Guess we all know what I worry about most...presents!! Lots and lots of presents!

    1. Carol, I simply wing it. I took a few years of gift wrapping in 4H growing up and usually got a blue ribbon so I can't be too shabby. Thank you for stopping by to read and for your comments. So pleased you enjoyed it. ♥

    1. Corinne, this year all my presents were in gift bags that I quickly bagged up myself. HA HA HA I guess that is how it goes when you are the one who orchestrates all the parties in the house. I got exactly what I wanted so it was a WIN WIN for me! Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

  19. I love beautifully-wrapped presents! (Sadly, we can't use ribbons because the cats insist on chewing the ribbon and then they get sick...)
