Gift Wrapping

October 30, 2007

Are you thinking about gifts, and giving and Christmas trees and shopping and crowds like I am already.  Well, I thought I would post something that will be useful for those of us who LOVE to give beautiful presents with that extra special touch.


These beautiful notecards and gift tags are perfect for adding to a special gift or simply to let a friend know you are thinking about them. These fun cards can be found at Crystal Nale Designs on etsy.



I was looking around for holiday papers and found some truly wonderful wrapping paper on etsy! Making this paper even more unique is the fact that all Erin Ruth gift wrap is printed with soy-based inks on 50% recycled paper.  Visit Erin Ruth on etsy for a greater selection of her beautiful couture wrapping.

YouCanMakeThis.com was started by Kim Christopherson, a former 4th grade elementary school teacher, turned “stay-at-home mom” when she decided that it would be nice to create a place where women could learn how to make items for their homes and families. What makes this site even more unique is the idea that these eBooks and patterns are written by “every day” women who have an “expertise” in an area. The site launched with under 20 eBooks and within a year has grown to nearly 500 eBook products.

Now in its second year, the site has created another avenue for learning — YCMT-TV. “You Can Make This Television” is a web-based program that will demonstrate techniques, tips, ideas, and tricks for learning something new. It is a free product that can be viewed at any time.

YouCanMakeThis is filled with fresh, fun and adorable ideas you will enjoy creating.
