Yep. Now I just have to find somewhere to hide them. My shopping is on track this year. Better than last December, which turned a little more last minute.
And last minute means, sometimes, let's be honest, not always thinking-it-through. Take my gifts for Uncle Dave, for example. Uncle Dave, my brother who lives in the States, flies in for Christmas when he can. He travels light, not a lot of room for presents. He has an excellent reputation as a gift buyer himself; and if he isn't around, he always contrives to have his parcels delivered on exactly the right day (including one magical Christmas Day itself. When there are no deliveries).
Anyway, back to my point. What I really mean is, he doesn't have much room for bringing gifts back, for packing whatever we give him to carry home again. This year I'm buying light, collapsible, fold up - no, can't say any more..

...because last year I spotted a book I thought he'd like. And I'm still looking at it. When it arrived I knew at once it would be too heavy, and I was right. he had to leave it behind.
But here's the thing. It's origami. It's paper folding. I like paper. I like playing with it. You know that. I'm not such a Star Wars fan, but I think I could get over that. Paper Yoda? I'm tempted to try.
I have Get It Scrapped to thank for my getting this story down on paper. When I was asked to follow the recipe for a prompted page I was looking forward to the challenge. I don't usually scrapbook to a plan. But this plan asked for three pieces of flair, amongst other things, and I had exactly the right pins sitting on my desk. Star Wars flair from A Flair For Buttons, which I put together with two square photos, some striped patterned paper and a one word title to make my prompted page. Thanks Get It Scrapped. May the force be with you.
