Thanksgiving is over...bring on the Christmas

I have always wanted to give beautifully wrapped gifts, but why spend a lot of time on something that is going to be destroyed?  My practical side has even led me to start buying wrapping paper that isn't Christmas-specific, so I can use it year round -

While I was in Roswell a couple of weeks ago at one of my favorite places, I was finally inspired to put together a gift wrapping plan that is easy and pretty - 

One of the vendors was selling old photographs converted into gift tags.  Brilliant!  I have a lot of photographs.  So, I came home and printed out wallet size photos onto cream colored paper, and voila -

Antique-looking gift tags!  Add some brown paper and pretty ribbon (purchased on sale after Christmas last year), and I have a simple and unique Christmas gift -
