Thankful Thursday: Birthday Special Wrap and Packaging Ideas

Thankful Thursday Design Team
Special Wrapping 
Packaging Ideas
Spa Birthday Card
Okay I will admit it...I am one of "those" people.  I love giving gifts and surprising people, however, I bag it and go.  (You know what I mean people!)  I tend to get cute gift bags and some tissue paper and call it a day.   

However, I really love it when someone spends a lot of time making a present feel special for me!  My friend Christine Marting is a gift wrapping genius and I have to say, no pun intended "gifted" in this department.  I am working on my gift giving presentation skills.  Here is a my attempt of special packaging of a "SPA" gift basket.

RockGirl Trying to Get Better Organized in May!

Trying to Get Better Organized in May!

Here are some areas to help me focus on this month, maybe some of them will help you too!

I am trying to better focus and use my time more effectively.  Are you like me?  Are your weekends flying by without getting much accomplished?   

Maybe this list will help us both!  This list was inspired by, an awesome organization site.

  • ·Set my goals for the month of May.  
  •  Make my to-do list and check it twice!
  • Create some just-for-fun goals for the summer.   
    • BBQ 
    • Summer vacation plans 
  •  Declutter + organize my recipes. 
  • Set- up a recipe binder full of my favorite recipes.  (Personally, I like to pick 2 new recipes to try each week.  One is always a Weight Watchers meal.)  If a recipe is a flop, I toss it!  
  • Make a list of all the household and outside projects to be completed.
    • Gmones washed and around the yard.
    • Planting
    • levels pavers
    • hang planters
  • Celebrate Mom’s day!  Make plans, cards, and gift.
