no tape

October 27, 2010

I needed to wrap a present, but couldn’t find any tape. What’s the next best option? Happy tape! I think this definitely makes a present much more happy!

I went a bit tape happy and also decorated the front. I am now thinking I will be using this tape to wrap all our Christmas presents. Christmas already, what?!! Yup. It will be here before you know it.
I am pretty much done with Christmas shopping for my girls, but there is just one more thing to get them (must save more pennies first). I think I have done a big chunk of shopping for friends and family too, but I need to go through my list and make sure (and still have things to make for gifts). I hate procrastinating and thus do shopping throughout the year and have all the presents stored in a big bag in my closet. Though as soon as my girlies start figuring that out, I am sure I will have to find a better hiding spot.
True just started acting normal again today. Hurrah! We are gonna head out to do errands and hopefully will get on the next family adventure soon. I am so excited!
One more week left until my birthday. I just like treats from Ben and my family (yes, I still give my parents a wish list) and that is why I like my birthday! I ain’t gonna lie. But really, no pressure Benny, no pressure. I just want to have my breakfast and a dinner date!

    I love happy tape also – I used it this summer when I taught an art class and it was a big hit!

    Your package with the little banners across the front looks so cute…someone will be happy with that!

  • lina says:

    love this idea!! i really need to get some of that tape…hmmm my birthday is coming up…maybe i should ask for it : )

  • Thank. I know my dumb chairs are there! I was trying to get rid of the chairs and table to give to Danny. Sorry maybe we should just get rid of them period. I'll ask around CrossView and see if anyone could use a table and some chairs. But to be honest I'm sorta scared transporting them bc dont you have BIG spiders there? LIke brown recluses?!!! AH so scary.

    P.S. Love the wrapping. DUDE, you are done with Christmas!? Man, I have a total of none! SO sad.

    Have a great rest of the week seeing Christ in everything and loving him for all of it 🙂
