Christmas in January

Just got back from Atlanta for the Gift Show. It was very exhilarating and exciting to finally see some new product introductions. But more about that in later blogs.

During every January gift show, my girlfriend, Lynda, and I celebrate a late Christmas. We designate one night as gift exchange night and enjoy opening gifts without the pressure of Christmas Day. That also gives me time to be creative and have fun with wrapping her gifts. This year animal print was the theme and the gifts were wrapped with a croco embossed gold and silver paper. The ribbon was from Sam's Club - can you believe it? Small rhinestone frogs and leopard pins embellished the ribbons. Lynda can use those later under cloches and in other small tabletop arrangements.

My friend's favorite colors are red and black, so the choice of packaging was perfect for her. But is sure makes it challenging to plan for the next season of gift giving. But I'll look for inspiration during the year---- that's the fun of it!
