Have you ever picked up a book or magazine that made you feel totally inadequate?? I was in the library recently & saw this new book on the shelf, Presentations: A Passion for Gift Wrapping by Carolyn Roehm. I love looking at pretty pictures, so thought I’d bring it home & browse through it. And wow, at the pretty pics inside! The packages that I wrap & give to friends have no resemblance to anything in this book, but it was fun to look at. Please tell me yours don’t either! I have to tell you that my passion for gift wrapping is missing in action. My first inclination when I have to wrap a gift is to throw it in the nearest bag that fits the present & is the right theme bag for what I need. I’d love to take the time to wrap pretty packages, but sadly, I just do not do that. These are so, so pretty & I thought y’all might like to see them too. Will it change our lives & make us turn over a new gift wrapping leaf…turning out prettily wrapped packages with unique & frilly bows that are just too gorgeous to take apart? I doubt it, but we can dream, right?!
The book is divided into seasons with Spring, Summer, Autumn, & Winter ideas & a special section for kids ideas. She has some beautiful tablescapes in here too, which are always pretty to look at. Hope you’re at least inspired!
