Isn't There Another Way?

I just need to know... isn't there another way to make a gift look presentable without spending hours standing or kneeling with rolls of uncooperative wrapping paper, tape you can NEVER find and scissors that poke you as you are trying to wrap? I know you are going to say what my mother says," Just get tissue and gift bags and slap it in there!' WELLL... that is what my mother does and I don't want to do that. So there. I don't know. I was just wondering. Thanks for reading.

I am one of the sick ones out there that LOVES wrapping and matching all of my wrapping paper and wire edged bows to each tree - sometimes I wish that I could be ecclectic like my mom, but I can't. Merry Christmas!

I started out strong yesterday wrapping and matching everything. Then I had my usual Christmas meltdown where I get mad at everyone in my house bec. "I am the only one who does all of the shopping, wrapping, etc.!" Anyway, by the time I went to bed, I just started tying red bows on/around the actual item and skipping the paper. It's okay--the wisemen didn't wrap their gifts :)

You girls are cracking me up! I read these comments out loud to my husband just to prove that this whole wrapping thing is a real topic of conversation!! Other women DO have wrapping issues. Kim, we just can't be EXACTLY like our moms, can we?? And Emily, I totally get the Christmas meltdown. SOMEONE else make ONE decision, PLEASE!
Oh, Jesus love us. Aren't you glad??
Merry Merry!
