creative gift wrapping and gift certificates
I have to say, I like opening some packages more than others. Do you remember the last time you enjoyed unwrapping a package from a seller? A year ago I bought some lotto tickets from Patch, a fella etsyblogger. The envelope was so adorable, I kept it.
Last month, I decided to buy some extra tissue paper, along with stickers and "bonus" items to include in my packages. Now I'm just waiting for that sale...
I did make two gift certificates, for $25 and $50. And I'm surprised at all the hits they have received. Sorta wondering why people are clicking on them... maybe they're looking to see how I put it together. I'm not sure if anyone is going to buy one, but they're in my shop. Have you ever purchased a gift certificate?

pondering your plan for 2011
I have lots of fun, writing ToDo lists. With the coming new year, I need to contemplate what I'll be tackling:
- lose weight
- do art every day
- be a better wife/daughter/teammate
Blacksburg Belle, so I'll have her url available, where you can get the worksheets and follow along with me. I plan to make this into a series - it's easier to stay focused that way!
