I'm going full-on Martha Stewart with my Christmas wrapping this year. It requires wax seals, glitter markers, silk ribbon, custom wrapping paper, a glue gun and maybe fire. I haven't decided yet.
This is what you can do when you're childless and single. My biggest expense every month is dog food, but it's very special dog food made out of all natural ingredients, gold, saffron and government secrets.
I assume that's why it costs $65 a bag.
I also assume Philip will be able to land an executive position at a NASDAQ traded company after completing dog training in about a year. So at least he'll be able to pay me back for what's added up to at least 1 year at an Ivy League school.
- Wax seals (full alphabet)
- Glitter markers (used to highlight wax seals)
- Silk ribbon (silky actually, not actual silk)
Instead of tags, I'll mark each ribbon with the recipient's initial as a wax seal. Like this.
I know. It's ... I mean it's pretty good, right? And it looks that good in real life.
Very Tom Ford for Gucci 1996.
The wax can be melted in a spoon over a flame if you want to go hardcore olden days. If you're wanting to keep it a bit more Martha, these glue sticks actually fit into a glue gun so you just squeeze the wax out like you do hot glue.
If you're in Canada:
I'm not showing you my entire wrapping ingredients because there has to be some sort of surprise when I show you the finished product in a couple of weeks.
It's cookie making weekend if you're taking the Christmas pledge so I'm going to be making shortbread dough for my cookie press and freezing it into rolls of dough I can break out in December.
Just in case you're wondering what I'll be doing this Saturday. I'll also be looking for anything I can possibly put a wax seal on just for the fun of it.
Allow me to introduce you to your puzzle today which took me 10:28 seconds to complete but it wasn't even enjoyable because I get very competitive with myself and by the end of the puzzle my heart rate was ... probably too elevated.
Good luck and have a good weekend.
