Happy Wednesday to you all in blog land.
I hate wrapping presents at the best of times , but this year i thought i'd put a little more effort into my wrapping & hopefully surprise the family at the same time.
I've used some baubles, ribbon , bells, & holly Silk holly leaves ,  to as a little something extra on a few presents i'm giving to my family. 
I would like to wish everyone out there a Very Merry Christmas & New Year . Hope Santa brings you all lots of lovely presents.

  11. Your parcels look fab Jill.
    I love wrapping parcels and it’s often been said to me that I should get a job in one of the big stores at Christmas wrapping gifts. This year though, being so far behind with everything, I fear that people are going to be disappointed when they get their gifts, I haven't even managed to make my own gift tags.....oh the shame of it.

    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas.


  12. Looking gorgeous and so festive! They look fab! Thanks for sharing in such a busy week! Hope you have a very festive and wonderfully merry time - see you in 2012! Sarah at 11.

    Happy Christmas!
