~~~The GIFTS are Wrapped!!!~~~

Hi everyone!!! It is crunch time but I feel pretty good about being ready! Usually I am not this calm but last night I decided I was going to get all of the gifts wrapped and under the tree today. I haven't done my hubby's yet cause he is a BIG SNOOP!!!! He will figure out what is in the boxes:):) So, I always try to use paper that will coordinate with the tree, which is all red and gold so I used gold paper and red and gold ribbons.  That big pile of gifts is all for my daughter, and I will tell you what they all are after Christmas just in case she reads this!!!!
 The gift basket I made up myself for our daughters Mother-in-law. I found a CUTE drum basket at Michaels and filled it with goodies: cocoa and a mug, a box of chocolates, some Christmas dish towels, 3 jars of jams. I got a roll of cellophane and wraped it all up and made the bow. I think (hope) she will like it.

 This pretty gift box I found at Michaels too! LOVE it!

 So, I am ready! Going to the grocery store tomorrow so I can make the lasagna on Sat. and the flavors will meld and be even better on Christmas day. I wish each and every one of you a merry and blessed Christmas. I hope you will be surrounded by family and love. I also want to THANK YOU all so much for following me on this journey and being so loyal and supportive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are all the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!! Merry Christmas and FA LA LA LA LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XO, Pinky


  1. Lasagna sounds soooo good!!! I always coordinate my wrapping with the tree too but this year I decided to use up all the leftover paper I had in the closet. Nothing matches! Merry Christmas!

  2. I bet you make a killer lasagna, Pinky. I love Michael's, especially this time of year. I used that drum basket filled with gifts, too. Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy New Year to you and your family. xo

  3. I'm feeling calm too! I've done all that I'm going to for Christmas. I do have to make some more cookies because the ones I had made seems to have disappeared!

    Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2012...Gail

  4. Your gifts look like they were wrapped with love! I think you did good on the present for your daughter's MIL! I love presents like that. I have made one for my BIL with wine things.

    I am pretty peaceful right now, too. Except hubby will come home with 1000 packages on Christmas Eve for me to wrap!!

    Merry Christmas, Pinky!


  5. Your gifts look just beautiful!
    I'm just wondering which one is mine?

    Love you!

  6. I'm so envious of your beautifully decorated gifts ... love them! I have yet to start ... oops!

  7. Your presents look so pretty under the tree. Very cute that you can't wrap your husband's yet! I won't wrap until Christmas Eve!
    Your tree looks beautiful!

  8. Just fabulous Pinky!

    Wishing you all the best for a very Merry Christmas!

  11. Hi Pinky,
    Your gifts look so festive and beautifully wrapped under your tree. I'm calm too. I am usually wigged out at this time. Maybe it's because I don't have a lot of gifts to wrap this year.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours! ~Delores

  12. I think Christmas has arrived at your house, Pinky! Beautiful!! I love your nativity underneath the tree as well. Wishing you a wonderful, blessed Christmas!

  19. Don't you find that we buy what we would love to have Pinky? I know I do. I think everybody should love what I love. Sometimes I buy something and end up keeping it cuz I like it so much... I'm bad.
    The presents are wrapped with care. You are the "perfect" wrapper Pinky.
    Merry Christmas my friend. I hope your gifts are all pretty and everything you've ever wanted.
