Time to give thanks for family, for loved ones and for all our blessings. Don’t even let the word Christmas enter into this special day, but tomorrow–black Friday while everyone’s rushing around—stay home and wrap all those gifts you’ve already tucked away. In honor of the work you’ll be doing, here’s another of my poems,
Tucked in a hush of tissue,
snug inside a box bed,
kept warm in a bright paper blanket,
wrapped tight by a bundle of bows,
the present sleeps peacefully
until rudely awakened on

Last year I posted this blog about unique and money-saving ways to wrap.
Here’s another idea. Take-out plastic containers, cleaned, of course, make great gift holders like these.
Why stop there? Cans make fun gift holders too. Here’s a link for easy directions.
So now we’re into December and seriously into the business of Christmas.
May yours be stress-free and love-filled.
