Some of my favorite things....

Brown paper packages tied up with strings....



ok, so it ain't brown or tied up with string...but don't ya think it's sweet?
I'm getting these ready to be sent off tomorrow.
My friend Marie of Marie Patterson Studio gave me the idea for the little goodie packaging, of course hers looks fabulous!!!I always have a hard time trying to figuring out what to "gift" buyers and since I never really do "gift" the same thing twice, it got to be very time consuming and I always wound up with a headache...so I think this "BoneHead/SkellyPop" idea was not too shabby. I think I like it more each time I see it, what do y'all think?
A while back, I joined Miss Zan Asha of " Wild At Heart Art" "Under The Sea" swap and was really anxious to get my swap done, I had so many ideas but I finally settled on one, he was so much fun to do and he definitely had that flow factor going for him. I was able to finish him early so he's going out tomorrow too, I can't wait to show y'all what he looks like!! As soon as my swap partner gets him I'll show ya!!!

Blessings,Flora

I think that gift wrapping is a fantastic idea. Makes me think about more professionally packaging my products instead of wrapping them in bubble wrap and shipping them off.

I like doing it too, it kinda lets your customer know you care, I think it does anyway!!

Very sweet indeed and I think I would Pea my Pants if I got one of those packages. LOL
My Mom and Grandma were professional gift wrappers. The big department stores like Woolsworth used to fight over them and paid my Gr'ma a huge salary one year to wrap. She wrapped so fast and so perfectly no matter what size the box. She could even put a elephant in a shoe box and you would never know it. LOL I do try and make my packages sweet but never as well as they do. Pretty soon Mom will be up here and maybe I can get her to wrap for me. Tee Hee, naughty pea huh?
Oh I can't wait to see your newest goodie.
Hugs,Pea

Flora!! Mi amiga...where have you been or rather where have I been!!!??? Anyway, love the presentation. I suck at gift wrapping. I have all sorts of ideas, but then I come down with bad case of the lazies and don't follow through. Of course I love your work..all of it...old and new and those that haven't been created yet!!!

I too have my sea creature ready...need to send it out to my partner. Need to do that soon...oh oh, feel the lazies coming on again and it's a bad one!!

Abrazos,
Georgina
