Create Your Own Gift Tags

I absolutely love wrapping gifts & cannot believe that I have never shared any of my creations with you. I will work on that! My gift-wrap room is fully stocked with a wide variety of wrapping paper, bags, ribbon, cool boxes, etc. Sometimes I just hang out in there & look at all of my pretty things. It makes me happy J One thing I have been unhappy with lately is my selection of gift tags. In my opinion, the tag should complement the wrapping paper & ribbon or contrast in an interesting way. I keep a few on hand but inevitably, they never "go" with the gift I need them to. So, I went to my favorite on-line retailer, Amazon, & purchased my own plain tags that I customized to coordinate with looks that I generally use for wrapping. Give it a try the next time you have a rainy day. Or, if you live in Atlanta, during the next Snowmageddon!! This project was SO much fun!

You can choose different shapes & edges for a very reasonable price!

Married to An Old Fart

It's true, none of us are getting any younger these days. But, you know what they say, you're only as old as you feel, and we feel pretty young & silly! 2014 started with a very big milestone in my household, my husband turned the big 4-0! We celebrated with a ski trip in Breckenridge with some of our close friends. But, before we left, I decided to give him an "old fart" themed gift complete with Polident, Gas-X & Old Spice (for the "old" part of the theme), and two really hilarious books, (for the "fart" part of the theme). Both can be found on Amazon.com. These are too funny not to share!

The Birthday Boy (um, man)

Here are a few pictures from the official celebration in Breckenridge:

If you are wondering what this is supposed to be a photo of, please look closely in the middle towards the left. It was one of the funniest wipe-outs I captured during our trip. Ah, good times :)
