{ packaging and wrapping}

it's always on our minds as photographers~ we realize how important it is to make the client value the product inside.

Do you wrap your Christmas presents with that same idea?

I'm off to wrap some {lots} of presents...the UPS man delivered 9 packages from Amazon last night {Santa had arrived}. I must admit i just discovered the true bliss of Amazon...being snowed in for three days gave me lots of time to finish up my with free two day shipping....gotta love it. If you still need gifts, Amazon has free one day shipping for the best gift of the year, the Kindle . Another great last minute gift...magazines for $5 a year...and two of my absolute favorites on sale are Southern Living and Coastal Living . Another great magazine for $10 is InStyle . {need something for that golf loving husband...Golf Magazine for $5..what a deal}


Speaking of magazines....thank you to Martha Stewart for the lovely eye candy above...don't you just love all the gift wrapping ideas! I'm off to wrap...



  1. These are beautiful! I get my craftiness from my grandmother. Her packages were always so beautiful & we couldn't wait to see what was inside. I try to make each one special whether it be the gift wrap I use or those extra pretty ribbons or trinkets. It makes the gift receiver feel special too!

  2. I wish I had time for such beautiful wrapping. I used to do all the ribbons and decorative touches...before I had kids. Now it is all about some spiderman and tinkerbell wrapping paper. I have one night (tonight) to wrap everything...including the gifts sent to the kids from family which typically arrive unwrapped.
