Getting Wrapped Up

December 22nd, 2007

Just a quick post before I venture out to finish up the last minute errands and grocery shopping.  Curt and I have been wrapping presents all morning and our sweet little Love Bird Parsley has been helping.


Parsley is 14 years old which is a little old lady for sure for a Love Bird, but she acts no different than she did as a youngster really.  She loves to bite and shred paper and had a ball helping Curt with the wrapping.


She certainly doesn’t get as much press as the big birds, Macaws Beaker and R.B., but we do love her!

While I’m here I’ll also share this jumbo binder clip I made awhile back.  When I saw this idea on SCS I just had to try it.  This was one of the ideas I had for everyone in my office before I decided to make the Reindeer Food.  These would make great holders for a photo or a special card, or as placecards at dinner.  The really do need the ribbon tied tight around the top to keep the clips tight enough to hold something.  I’m thinking I might make a variation for Valentine’s Day.  Easy peasy quick project.


I hope you are enjoying this weekend before Christmas.  I fear there are more things to do  on my list than I can actually accomplish, but we’ll see.  Breathe in..breathe out…remain calm…focus on the Reason for the Season…exude joy…that’s the ideal…continue to pray for calm and focus…


Merry Christmas!!!  🙂  Thanks for stopping by amid the holiday rush!

    Awwwww, Parsley!!! Come visit Texas anytime, you darling helper!!
    I completely understand the last minute rush … I’m in the midst of tags & ribbons before our children and our little guys arrive later this morning for our family celebration! Although I certainly cannot sway from my current work …. I do love these clips & adornments! Wow! You go girl, Jami! I’ll check back later … ahead of you, I believe, on that “Oh why did I eat so much?” sentiment! I can feel it coming, Jami! Yikes!

    Merry Christmas!
