Well, it's November 30th. I get my camera tomorrow, but most importantly, it's the last day of Nablopomo. I thought it would be fitting to wrap up this whole "month of posting misery" with instructions on how to properly wrap a gift.
A little history. A few years ago, I had a moment of temporary insanity and needed to get out the house after being couped up all day with the boys and decided to get a part-time job in the evenings. I needed a job where I didn't have to interact with other people and didn't have to use one single brain cell. So I got a job at QVC in the packing department. I was so good at being antisocial and putting peanuts in the boxes that soon I was moved to the gift wrapping section.
Still no need for human contact, still no need for brain cells, but it added a little pretty to my routine. I didn't work at QVC long and BN asked that I not work another part-time job again, because it messes us up at tax time. I did meet one of the funniest people on this planet. And to think I spent the last 8 years hooking up with Mom's groups trying to find that special friend that I could call "all mine" and there she was, also in a fit of insanity, working part-time at QVC.
So without further ado and sloppy kisses, let Pogo and I show you how to wrap the perfect gift. This is the technical version (complete with outtakes) - not to be confused with the super creative version showcased by Jenni. (you don't want to miss that.)
