I got quite a bit done during the long weekend.  I did a lot of wrapping, which I LOVE doing!  Wrapping makes me so relax and happy, its so weird.  All of the items no longer fit into a paper grocery bag.  They are currently in a large paper macy's bag as well as a paper grocery bag.  Anywho, I started the large items for my partner's daughters, and completed a small for the her hubby.

My lovely partner and I live just around two hours from each other, so we're making plans to exchange our packages in person.  She's going to come for a farm visit and lunch.  How fun! 
That's so cool!  I hope you two have a great time!

I'm very excited!  That's going to be a very busy weekend for me but it will TOTALLY be worth every minute of awesomeness!  Cheesy 

I started cutting out pieces for another large last night only to discover that I cut out half of them backwards.  Roll Eyes  SO!  We'll just be making it twice as big.  Grin  Really, no one should ever be surprised when my craft projects end up being twice as big as the original plan.  Wink  I'm thinking that Saturday I'm going to sit down and figure out exactly how many days are done and what I have left to work on and start wrapping...  can you buy halloween wrapping paper?  Other than plain old black and orange?

I'm making good progress. Waiting for this stupid rain to stop so I can paint and not inhale tons of fumes....

can you buy halloween wrapping paper?  Other than plain old black and orange?
well, i had a a partner who wrapped everything in candy corn themed tissue paper, but it ripped. it looked adorable though!other ideas are to put them in halloween goodie bags and staple them shut if they are small enough. you can also get cute trick or treat bags from the 99 cents store and put it in that and tie it closed. you can also buy plain wrapping paper and make it halloween themed with stamps. oriental trading has alot of items that would be good for this. hope ive helped!

I've been using black wrapping paper, and then spicing it up with halloween themed scrapbooking paper, fun ribbon, burlap, and gauze.  I had some Boo! tissue paper from last year, so I've been using that as well.  I also used a couple of plain gift bags, and put a little scrapbooking paper on it as well to cover up old logos, and it make it more halloweeny.

I'm gonna have to check out the dollar store for trick or treat bags, what a great idea!

Last year my partner used brown paper bags decorated with orange and black markers and they looked really cool! I just used random fall print gift bags that I had around the house... they worked fairly well too!

Brilliant!  Thank you, I will definitely do this.  I have patterns in binders, but I just make notes on random papers which end up getting misplaced....

I am using snowflake paper to wrap! Partly because I really like it but mainly because it is all I have and I want to use it up. But I think it looks lovely.

7 pieces finished and wrapped. 3 partly done. 3 yet to materialize. Getting there...
