Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of January, 2018.

Happy Birthday to my great niece who celebrates her birthday today.

I believe she will be ten.

 

Another beautiful weather day on the way.

We had an awesome weekend.

Walks with Alvin.

Did some housework and laundry.

Coffee with two of my friends.

Messenger chat with my sister.

Great weekend.

**********************************

Wanted to share another thing that I love to do and that is to wrap Christmas gifts reusing as much packaging and decoration as possible.

This year I used the packing paper that came with my STEEPED TEA orders and reused ribbon and bags from past years.

I try to reuse as much as I can from year to year.

I love using ribbon to make gifts extra special.

Sometimes combining different colours of ribbon as shown below.

Also taking unusable pieces of Christmas wrap and cutting into strips to use as a border on the gift.

So many different ways to make use of old wrap, ribbon and bags.

The packing paper could also be used to mail parcels.

We can save money and help the environment all at one time.

Plus it is so much fun.

Be creative, stay on budget and be environmental.

Just some ideas.

 

Well here we are once again time to leave for work.

Seems like only yesterday.

Special Hello to: the birthday girl “C”

Always, Carol & Alvin
