    Keep going guys.....we are nearly there.
    I need to find some cellophane and wrap a little hamper that I have done for my mum.
    DH has not wrapped mine yet, but still have time. He always comes through.

    Wrapped 5 presents last night before the pain in my back made me throw in the towel. Will try to do more tonight...I'm thinking gift bags are a good idea this year...

    AJ, sorry your back is hurting. I use my ironing board for wrapping. I can lower it and sit to wrap or I can raise it up and stand. I works for me. I have done the wrapping while sitting on the bed and it was so much harder.

    Yes, gifts bags are a good alternative, if you have them already. I have a stash plus plenty of wrapping paper. I am trying to use everything I have before purchasing more.

    Miss JoDee,
    I have not bought a single gift bag or roll of wrapping paper this year. I have so much from previous years that I am using it up before looking at more. Will have to be very strict when at the after Christmas sales.

    Phew, we made it.
    Thanks for joining me throughout the last part of the year to wrap and prepare for Christmas. Hopefully by sticking to the planned days wrapping was a little less of a chore this year and it gave us time to focus on other areas or just relax in the lead up to Christmas.

    Well done to you all.

    I was able to get my wrapping done early this year and it was so wonderful. I shall keep this in mind for 2018 to get me motivated to wrap.

    Having these dates, whether I was actually able to get the wrapping done or not, helped me to stay focus early on.

    If everyone is happy for me to continue planning the wrapping days for 2018 I will make a note in my planner and post dates around June/July.

    Lana, always nice to have the help. My mum and I wrap together and it certainly helps save both time and my patience. Wrapping is not my favourite thing.

    Thanks, Katrina. I don't always get to wrap on the party days, but I use the days to stay focused on things I need for wrapping...or for realization that I have nothing TO wrap:eek::D! I always look forward to your posting the dates!

    Yes, thanks- I did not always wrap on the dates but it kept me focused and aware. I also used the dates as a reminder to check the gifts etc... that I already had.

    Keep it going Katrina- you did a great job!
