The old me is slowly returning.
I’ve spent a lot of time cleaning tonight, wrapping gifts, cooking (lots and lots of potatoes for tomorrow’s dinner) and most recently making gift tags.
You see, I have all of these bath salts I wanted to give as gifts for Christmas (and I have a ton more to make). I made them before the move and started putting them into smaller bottles tonight. I need to make so much more, and think I can do that on Thursday. This past weekend (in between concerts, video editing and sleeping) I came up with the idea to make gift tags. I got a super-cool stamp last month that has different sayings, several of which are “hand crafted” or “just for you, from…” kind of sayings. Very useful. I borrowed a tag punch from my mom, stamped the tags, added the holes (with a very nice tool from Martha Stewart called the “screw punch”) and I have these 5 tags in just a few minutes! In fact, it’s taken me longer to type this than it took to make the tags. Unfortunately for most people, I’ve already used the standard gift tags I got on clearance last year.
My mom will be proud.
