Wow. I just realized today that it has been almost a month since my last post. Life has just gotten busy and with the holidays fast approaching, it will be full steam ahead from now until Christmas Eve!
I do plan on posting photos of my Brown Paper Package Exchange gifts shortly. I have most of them ready to wrap and would like to get them out the door to my recipient by the end of next week. I must admit, I did purchase most of my items rather than make them but there will be a few paper goodies in the mix. I really wanted to focus on Made in Canada. Vancouver is hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics this year and I am really, REALLY excited about that. I also wanted to give my recipient the gift of "snow" and I could only think of one way to do that (you will have to wait until next week to find out what that is). I also focused on Canadian founded businesses for my "sweet treat" offering. *sssssh* - in Canada, we are not permitted to mail edibles to the U.S. but obviously I am going to live dangerously and send something anyway. I feel less guilty sending something store bought rather than handmade (plus, it is sealed in plastic so if they do decide to target my package, it won't seem so suspicious).
So, I promise to post pictures next week of the gifts before and after wrapping and get them out ASAP so I do not disappoint my exchange partner. Until then....◦
