The gift, which was my inspiration for my NaBloPoMo theme, is currently on it’s way to being delivered. I had a friend from medical school staying with me for the past two weeks while she was here doing an elective and I asked her to hand-deliver the gift as a “payment” for staying with me. I hope it makes it to the final destination tomorrow!
I certainly had a great time putting it together – nothing like a little craft time to get the mind off of other stuff. I had this idea to make my own wrapping paper out of brown kraft paper and an owl stamp. I chose a blue colour ink because I thought it would go well with the month of “November” (you know, because it’s cold outside, and cold = blue… or something like that). I completed the look with blue twine-like string and blue gift tags. All the gifts inside of the bigger box are wrapped in the same wrapping paper with the same twine and tags. The only gift I didn’t wrap was the very first gift – a ceramic owl mug – because I thought it would add a nice touch to the visual presentation when the box was opened.
I know that the gift will be a surprise, but what I’m hoping will be the best surprise is that it is a hand-delivered gift from a friend who is so far away… very unexpected 🙂
