Christmas Wrap & Cards #Folksy

I thought we would do something a bit different today and rather than the gifts, we`d have gift wrap and cards. It will make a nice change as you only ever get to see the odd item of either mixed in with other themes.
So what do you think, interesting or not? I think it`s highly relevant to the time of year and with more people becoming enviromentally aware it`s probably a good time to be thinking re-usable wrapping.
What would be the etiquette of that though? Not very polite to ask for the wrapping back I suppose but you want to be sure they were going to re-use it in the future. So do you ask or just hope? Quite a tricky one that.
Let`s have some replies to that one please, but do keep it clean.
To be honest I`m not sure I could bear to part with it. You might think I`m daft but when you see some of the wrap and gift bags etc you`ll know what I mean.
Ahhh... I`ve solved the problem. You give the re-usable wrap to close family then although they`ll roll their eyes and think you are eccentric they will hand it over. Maybe!
Great to see such beautifully illustrated wrap, cards and tags. Makes such a nice change from the usual mass produced ones you see everywhere.
My brain has been working over time lately. I`ve had a new idea brewing for quite some time. Had little goes but then it doesn`t go right or I`m too busy and give up on it. But at the minute it feels as though I have an invisible someone prodding me to get on with it. The minute I start doing anything else the prodding is back, so I give in and am working hard on it.
No it`s not crochet or knitting or anything like that. Have I piqued your interest? Good! As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

My brain is woolly and numb
probably too much sitting on my bum.
I couldn`t think of a nice rhyme
and now I`m running out of time.
Was trying to think of something witty
but nothings come to me for a ditty.
Got a bit of a stuffy head
that keeps on thinking of bed.
My eyes are gritty and want to sleep
and it`s getting hard to keep
them prised a part and awake
but it`s still early for goodness sake.
Still trying hard to think of verse
I suppose it could be worse.
I could be trying for a wax lyrical thing
or horror of horrors, trying to sing.
Now you are thankful you can`t hear or see
the eccentric person that is me.
Not really a rhyme with much style
but it will have to do for a while!!

  3. Nice selection, I really like the brown and red wrap from Sophia Victoria Joy. In my family if we give each other presents in a gift bag, we leave the attached tag blank so that they can reuse the bag. It's like an extra present!
