    I have one thing I could go ahead and wrap...DsonIL's luggage. Right now, it's in the spare bedroom. I need to wrap it and get it out of sight.

    Have you all decided or do you have a wrapping theme this year?

    MissJane, I don't have a wrapping theme as such. I love the mishmash of colours and shapes under the tree. I wrap most gifts but put others in bags and boxes to make a wonderful display under the tree.

    Just a reminder that the first wrapping party is tomorrow!

    Thank you Katrina for keeping me organized.

    I plan on wrapping the gifts in my gift closet and listening to Christmas music while I do it.

    First wrapping day today. I am not going to be wrapping as it is a Saturday and of course everyone is home. I am going to go through my planner and write any more stocking fillers that I want to buy. I may also get time to go through the stockpile and see what foods I have for Christmas. What ever I do, Christmas will be the focus of the day.

    After reading some of these replies, I want to wrap now. :) I don't have gifts or stocking stuffers yet.

    I did chuckle reading that Aunt Jamelle bought 12 rolls of Scotch Tape. I did the same thing two weeks ago. Some of my children must have gone tape crazy this summer because we were out of tape. I know I had 4 rolls in May. I used to have a "secret" stash of holiday wrapping supplies. I don't think it's so secret anymore. :D

    I had a fabulous day yesterday planning and making lists (and checking twice). I am torn between Oh MY GOODNESS I need more weeks and I want Christmas now!!!!
    Come September the excitement really begins for me.
    Looking forward to the next wrapping party.

    I did not wrap either But i got my Christmas binder/ planner updated. I was not entirely happy with the way I had it set up last year. So Im trying something new. Had a tentative discussion with Luke about staying home V's going out, ideas for a different breakfast on Christmas morning also discussed the possibility of changing Christmas Eve dinner up a bit.

    Well, I did get some wrapping done. Not as much as I was hoping, but some. Because you KNOW, as soon as I got started, DS came upstairs and he wanted to wrap something too - lol

    All in all, I think I got a dozen things wrapped? I focused on the felt ornaments I've made and other small crafted gifts. Didn't realize how much I have already to wrap! Went through my box of stocking stuffers and misc. items and there is quite a bit to wrap in there too. Plus the at least 3 toy gifts I've hidden away for DS.

    Now that I've got everything pulled out I'll try to keep wrapping here and there as time allows.

    I need to follow Ahorsesoul's lead and figure out where to PUT the wrapped gifts!

    Good job to all of you that got something wrapped. You will be that little bit ahead of the game come December.
    Next wrapping party is September 16th I believe. The weeks are rolling by now.

    Im in! I have a few things brought for my daughter and family already that I can sit and wrap. I do need to find labels though but I have some Christmas cards that are the small ones that Im thinking if I cut up and hole punch with some nice ribbon I can make my own labels. Looking forward to some christmas tunes. Im in the UK - will anyone else here be up for me to chat with whilst I wrap??
