A Gifted Christmas: My Dog Wrapped This Gift

With the holidays approaching, I was overwhelmed by all the things I could write about regarding gift wrapping. So, I am scaling it down to a mini-series called "A Gifted Christmas" to keep track of my own Christmas gift-wrapping preparations. I hope you'll join me along the way!

Alright, we are less than two weeks away from Christmas. To tell you the truth, I have been a bit panicky. I realized that it's easy for me to lose the joy of giving and wrapping gifts during this season, simply because of the number of presents that need to be thought about at once.

We are traveling to Seattle, then Boston, then back to Seattle in these two weeks. Because we're flying with baby and baby gear in tow, we've had some of our online gift purchases shipped ahead of us to lighten the load. Good news for our suitcase-toting muscles, but bad news for keeping you abreast of my gift wrapping for Christmas. At this point, I've done very little of it!

Thank goodness I remembered this awesome post about how one woman stays sane when wrapping her Christmas gifts...she pretends her dog wrapped them.

After wrapping gifts regularly for her online business, she found herself out of steam to wrap presents for friends and family. Hopefully this lighthearted take on gift wrapping will help me not take things too seriously in the span of time before Christmas day!
