Wrapping Gifts and Making Snow Flakes
I had help with the gift wrapping this week. Two of our Great Grand Children arrived at 7:30 am. Their mom dropped them off on her way to work. Our goal that day was to wrap all of Great Grandma's gifts. We had a blast. We wrapped gifts, took breaks, had hot chocolate. We even stopped working in the afternoon to make snowflakes for their windows at home. I ironed the paper snowflakes between sheets of waxed paper. I added some shavings from a scented candle. The wax melted when I put the hot iron on the paper. It scented all the snowflakes and made them translucent, too. My grand daughter says they smell so good. What a nice day!!!
How do you like my 1960s silver tree. I have four of them and I am just crazy about them. This one is in our dining room and you can see some of our newly wrapped gifts there beneath the tree.
