A number of years ago I bought a huge roll of white paper that I used to use to wrap whatever presents we had ... sometimes it was plain, other times I got the kids to decorate it. We also had a steady stream of paintings brought home from kinder which I also used for wrapping paper. Now don't call me cheap here ... it seemed a waste to throw out all those paintings ... but how many pieces of A5 paper covered in various paint splotches ... and the kids seemed proud to have their paintings displayed like this. Anyway The Boy is not a prolific artist, he's done some paintings but my supply of wrapping paper as dried up, and my roll of white paper has run out too.
I was wandering the aisles of Officeworks the other week and found this ...
a 70m roll of brown paper for $20. I know it's not quite as cost effective as free paintings from kinder but teamed with a pretty ribbon from my box ... makes an attractive wrapper for our Christmas presents. Which ties in nicely with HSMSHS prompt GIFT.
OK the ribbons came from presents we've been given ... you can call me cheap now ... I call it environmentally friendly ... you know recycling and all that.
I've been a bit slow uploading my photos for November, in fact I still have a heap from the girls athletics day ... continuous shooting always seems like a good idea at the time ... I did delete a whole heap but there's still a heap there. I finished uploading my project365 photos for November today, I missed one day this month, which is the first day I missed. Here's November's mosaic.
