A xmas present for myself


Good old Threadless, trust them to have a $10 sale right before Christmas, oh and trust them to have the tee that I've been wanting for months back in stock... but not for $10! I didn't realise until I was halfway through checkout, but I think it's pretty and hopefully a medium will still fit me ok so I don't mind. And after considering my street team points which I had $13 worth stored up the whole thing only cost me $12 including postage. Here are the other two tees that I wanted but alas they were already sold out in every girly size!

In case you haven't noticed I'm a bit into the cream coloured shirts, I already have one and it's a really nice colour and easy to wear under tops without it looking as strange as my bright yellow and electric purple Threadless tees. So anyway that's a little plug for Threadless because they have cool tees and even better hoodies and I have a million of them (although you must make sure you don't wash them in hot water or put them in the dryer because they shrink... like most of mine have sadly).

In other news I've started wrapping Christmas presents, but it's really not working out the way I was planning. I had two ideas in mind and both of them start with the presents being wrapped in brown crafty kinda paper firstly. Idea number 1 was to them wrap a thick strip of really pretty/fancy/sparkly/glittery/expensive Christmas-y paper, and then a really gorgeous ribbon around that. Idea number 2 was simply to stamp the brown paper with some Christmas-y themed stamps in green and/or red and then a really gorgeous ribbon around it.

And after spending about an hour (not really) on google trying to find photos of what I'm talking about I still haven't found anything! So frustrating, I should really save these things when I first see them. The stamped xmas paper idea was on that Womens Weekly Christmas special thing that was on channel 9 a week or so ago. Ah well, I'll just have to take photos of the ones I DO make and then maybe you'll know what I'm talking about! Oh dear, my brain hurts, 8 hours of making ribbons for Christmas hampers is really not the most stimulating work. Perhaps cleaning tomorrow will get me thinking again... though I really doubt it. I hope your wrapping and gifting is going better than mine!

(Thank the lord for autosave, silly Fi just accidentally clicked the little 'x' instead of on the the tab, I almost thought "bye bye blog post", luckyyy)

I know exactly what you are talking about with the presents... I wanted to do mine like that (with the strip of paper and a ribbon) but I am always too lazy and procrastinate and then run out of time... hence I haven't started my Christmas shopping (OK, I lie, I have bought one book for my best friend but only because I had to get it off Amazon and wanted it to arrive on time!)...

And you gotta love that autosave!! phew...
