Pretty Pressies

Shhh... I can't say who these Valentine presents are for but I love how our Aussie friends say "pressie" instead of present! The pressie above is for a "girl" and the one bellow is for a "boy". I made the little tags for each of them. The tissue paper, yummy trims, some of the papers and the decals came from other bloggers! I'm so thankful to have them to use and I'm so thankful for my blogger friends!
I don't know about you but I have the hardest time wrapping a present for a boy or a man! This particular boy happens to be a nature lover (just like me) so I went with a nature theme. I wonder if those seams would have ironed out? I don't think he'll notice them, though! If I could have found my raffia, I would have used it for ribbon but I think my raffia went to live in the lost craft lands.
This is my week end, girls! We are going treasure hunting today- just here in town and then home for a movie. As a family, we're on a Sci-Fi kick lately so we'll be watching the original Star Wars. As a girl, I'm back to watching McLeod's Daughters. I was mad at the writers and stopped watching but now I've forgiven them. ☺
Are you excited that Jan. is almost over? We've had so many warm spells and such good health that this Winter isn't troubling me as much as last Winter; although like most of you, I do have the "blahs". Hang in there, girls! Our enthusiasm will return with the sun!
Be happy!

Oh Holly Sweetie...
I love "pressie" that is the cute word for the day. I will remember that. It made me smile. Thank you for sharing. I know your recipients will be so happy. I love the wrapping jobs on both.

Your new picture of yourself is so pretty. I love it.

Raining here this morning. I woke up to clean smelling air when I walked outside. Love it.

Have a beautiful Thursday sweetie.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry
