A Christmas Meme

I got this little Q&A Internet Meme from Leslie's blog "Kaleidoscope"

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?
Wrapping paper! I love the really cool handmade-looking wrapping paper that you can get for a song at Ikea. But I've also been known to wrap presents in fabric, old posters or even newspaper. Wrapping presents is one of my favorite things about Christmas. I recycle all kinds of odd papers and things. I also love to stamp someone's name on their present or make unusual gift cards. Here's my messy, but efficient wrapping station:


2. Real tree or artificial?
Real. What can I say, it's a big pain and slightly messy, but it smells and looks so good.

3. When do you put up the tree?
Whenever I have time. This year we bought it in early December, and it sat in the living room for a week before I had time to decorate it. I didn't mind since it still made the room smell good.

4. When do you take the tree down?
Usually New Year's Day. But this year I might try to take it down a little earlier.

5. Do you like eggnog?
Yep, love it... especially with a little brandy.

6. Favourite gift received as a child?
I can't remember anything in particular. It was all good. I loved opening presents on Christmas morning.

7. Do you have a nativity scene?
No, but I do like to display my collection of Madonnas, which I've brought back from Italy over the years. Here's a few:


8. Hardest person to buy for?
My dad. And he has a birthday on New Year's Eve. Doubly hard.

9. Easiest person to buy for?
My mom. She'll tell me what she wants, and she's fun to buy things for.

There, that was pretty easy. Leave me a comment if you decide to join in.

Oh that's beautiful - your wrapping paper sound so good - very individual for differnt presents.

I have the same orange haired angel by Fra Angelico - I got mine in Cortona a couple of years ago. :)

You are the best wrapper!
