    Great idea for the wrapping paper!

  5. I am so behind on my reading, so I didnt see this on DS but I love yours! I did this a couple christmases ago with white snowflakes. I didnt like to thick my brown paper was though, made it hard to wrap with. Is yours thinner? Where did you get it?

    Thanks for commenting on the mercury glass ornaments! I have been thinking about you lately. How are you? Do you ever make it into Anchorage? We will be living there in 3 weeks (wow that went fast!). Let me know if you ever come to town and we could get crafty!!
