P.s. I'm just getting caught up on your blog. All your Christmas decorating is beautiful. And your second chance story is so heartwarming and touching, wow!! You are so blessed

Carmie of the Single Nester said...

LOL! I wrapped all my gifts on Monday. Of course in turquoise and white!

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

I'm with you on this one! I have all my wrapping still left to do but this is so hard for me when I homeschool my kiddos and they're always in the house with me!!! Good luck with your wrapping

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

I have not even started wrapping. Heck, I am not even done shopping yet!

Pamela said...

Girl don't even get me started. Not a single one is wrapped but I did make sure I have paper and tape!:) Thanx for your kind comment early on my frames. I loved doing um but they do take some time. I thought abt selling some but not sure how well they would ship. Oh, before I go, loving the doors you redid! They turned out great! Send some cold this way!!

Lol! I am with you Michelle!

Pam @ Frippery said...

On my list of things to do...eventually. I always say this is the year I will really do a fabulous wrapping job. But I think that may be next year again, ha ha.

Julie Johnson said...

I haven't done any wrapping if it makes you feel better!! One more day of the kids in school...I better do it tomorrow.
Thanks for popping by my blog. I did laugh after learning it was dh, and not my driving. :) Off to clean up for three more parties and tutoring. I think a glass of vino is in order for the evening!

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

I see I'm not alone. Good luck to all of you! Looks like we need it :)

I'm keeping it simple and only doing brown paper packages. I've never done that before so think it will be fun!

Thanks for the reminder! Have a happy one!

xx,
Michelle

I haven't started wrapping yet. I've been busy making fleece blankets for the grandchildren, but they have to go to the post office tommorow...So, I will start wrapping then. It's one of my least favorite things to do. Probably because I'm not good at it!

Completely Coastal said...

Oh my. I have to say..., I'm glad we don't do gifts at all -without kids that's easy to do. I have all the time thinking about great foods to make instead, haha.

Tricia - A Rosy Note said...

Luckily, I have been wrapping as I buy things. I still have to finish my shopping though :(

Vanessa said...

Amen sister! I start out all gung ho and it just seems so fun with Bing Crosy singing in the background and then about an hour into it I am just slapping that tape on as quickly as possible! I have to do it a little at a time so I don't burn out. I'm sure you have all sorts of lovely creations you are going to be showing us though! :-)

Deb said...

I am so with you Michelle...haven't even started wrapping yet!

Robin said...

What! We have to wrap the gifts!!!!! LOL

I don't know about you but I'm starting to feel a little under pressure. Baking starts tomorrow, wrapping comes next!

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

I get wrapping-paper sickness!!! We have so many presents to wrap at Christmas I put it off and off until I make myself sit down and do it ALL at once.

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Amen sister...I know the feeling...have not wrapped one single gift yet! Love your header:) Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Blessings,
Linda

Kindra-At Home With K said...

LOL I feel like #2 also! I always have the best intentions with elaborate wrapping but do it simple every year. I just run out of steam. Have a great weekend!

Val said...

Haha, I like to do my wrapping late at night with a glass of wine.... It makes it so much more enjoyable ; )

A Cottage Muse said...

Hi Michelle ~ I've been wrapping as I go along, first time ever!!

Good luck!

Brenda Kula said...

No, I'm not getting it done. I just haven't been in the mood. But the day is going to slip up on me and I'll have to soon!

I need to work on the wrapping part too :-) Congratulations, you're the winner of my giveaway Michelle! Will the email address here on your blog be the right one to give to the company that hosted the giveaway?
Blessings,
Marcia

shari @ little blue deer said...

Yes, and I am with you! You know what I get is those little picks at the Dollar Tree, they actually really look nice tied with a bit of raffia! XX!

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

How's the wrapping going, Michelle? I did a ton last night and I thought of you! I think I will save the fancy wrapping just for my friends who will appreciate it - not my children who just want to rip it off!!!

erin said...

i haven't even started all the wrapping!! so much to do! thanks for visiting my blog recently. i have enjoyed perusing yours.....the post about your open heart surgery brought back memories of my hubby's quadruple bi-pass 3 years ago. i know all about those chairs that "kind of recline". what a difficult time for you, especially not being able to hold your new baby. thanks for sharing.

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

A few here and there
I think my neighbor are going to trade babysitting so we can finish it without someone sneaking in on us.
Good Luck :)

Erin@likegrandmas said...

You are giving me ideas with that CL pic... I haven't stated wrapping yet, uh oh!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I just visited a friend from Norway's blog and she'd recently won a sign from Ramsign too. She just posted a photo. I thought you might want to take a look at it in case you want some ideas. Her name is Sylvia and her blog is:
http://hjemmebest-sylvia.blogspot.com/
She has google translator at the top of her blog to help (it isn't always right though).
Blessings,
Marcia
