Today I am finishing up the last of my gifts.Â We are leaving to visit family in Texas in a few days and everything needs to be ready by tomorrow.Â Â We are driving, which means I can bring some extra things, but also means a LONG trip with the girls!
Anyway, back to my gifts.Â Â I like to decorate my gifts with ornaments, it makes two gifts out of one!Â So today I picked up some metal ornaments and personalized them.
I used an engraver to add our family name and year.Â Â I got my engraver from Harbor Freight a few years ago for less than $10.Â Â At the time I didn’t think I would use it much, but it has really come in handy!
I am bringing some of my homemade preserves to give to people I don’t see often, and I thought I would dress up a plain brown paper bag to hold them.
I started by using a punch on the opening edge.
