I've started Christmas!

No, its not my ironing pile ;)

It's my Christmas presents to 'the family' this year

$1 Egyptian Cotton Tea towels on special  from Spotlight a while ago and some cotton tape from a 1000m roll I found in an Op shop for $3.
Officeworks tags and a Spotlight stamp and inkpad and there they are.

Just a little more eco-friendly this year
But my kiddos will have the obligatory cheap thin Christmas paper I buy at the after Christmas sales wonderful, hand wrapped by elves, gifts from Santa.
Christmas is actually on hold here 'till next week as Big Boy Two is a December baby and that will take priority.
But all bets are off next weekend!
Hope you are enjoying your Christmas planning too :)
Irene xx

hi Irene, love the wrapping 'paper' Idea. I'm a friend of Nikki (original mischief), thru eBaying, which is how I came across your blog. Not very crafty myself I love everything vintage, and am an expert OpShopper!. ~ Lyndel
