Brown paper packages....


I have finally gotten organised and finished getting my Advent Swap parcels together.
I was mulling over how to wrap them ( I know, I think about all the big issues here...haha), and decided to go with the brown paper and string look. I stamped my date cards to add a bit of colour.  I think they look nice and rustic, I hope Vicki my swap partner likes them!  They are currently winging their way to the Northern Territory, and should be there early next week. 
So, one thing to cross off my to do list! Yay.

I have nearly finished my thing for the other Christmas swap I signed up for,  but will show you that tomorrow when I take photos.

Just thought you might like to see the gorgeous colours of the self sown Shirley poppies in our garden at the moment......

so beautiful!  They really glow in the late afternoon sun......

Anyway, hope your week is going well, see you later!


  1. I don't think you can beat brown paper & string... something very promising about it isn't there? I'm not quite at posting stage with mine, but nearly there.. Beautiful poppy pics :)x

  2. Hey Jules, love brown paper packages...........they look wonderful all piled up .

    A fun parcel for your swap partner to receive.

    How did the' big cleanup of 2011' go? Hope you managed to get it sorted.

  3. Loving all your advent parcels. Your wrapping is a great look and I know your swapping person will be so thrilled. POPPIES how beautiful, we won't be seeing them for 7 months : (. Have a great day, xoRobin❤
