✴ it's a wrap...

Tonight I should be supping cocktails with Mr H at the wrap {or almost wrapped} party for this
But for this nasty flu/cold, pouring rain and lack of babysitter, here I am sat at home thinking of the other, more festive type of wrapping...
Being poorly, and with a little poorly poppet to boot, has meant the 'make' to do list has remained firmly unmade and undone...anything stitchery has been dumped at the first hurdle. A head cold doesn't make time for pattern cutting, counting stitches and threading needles...oh no, forget that. 
So instead I've turned to the next best thing....a bit of crafty retail therapy.
And some simple festive gift tags....made with mini tags from Ryman, snowflake stamps from Muji and blue & white bakers twine from Shabby Pea Designs.
Festive crafty supplies I've spotted;
Doilies @ Packagery / Sweetie Bags @ In The Clear / Ribbon @ Knot and Bow

  1. It's a lovely tag, I do love the stamp! Argh, darn head colds, sounds like it's really stopped you in your tracks..I hope you feel better quick as a wink! x

  2. I love all of that. I've been on almost every site you linked to. I'm obsessed with Christmas stamps and was so keen to buy them but unfortuntely most don't ship to Australia, and if they do, they cost a fortune. I'll just stay in awe instead! Gorgeous tag.

  3. Sarah I too am suffering from the dreaded head-cold and add to that the previous week of a strained wrist, it's been two weeks of non crafting! I'm feeling a bit demented!!
    Those tags are gorgeous and I hope you feel better soon.

  4. lovely tag! thanks for the links. I've been looking for a printer to get some stickers done. One site I saw was Print Peppermint, and I find their site to be hip and very cool. I'm excited to try them out.
