Baking begun? Check. Decorating? Check. Tree? Check. Presents bought. Check. Presents wrapped? Not even close.
An early shopper I completed our list a couple of weeks ago. There are a few odds and ends I can pick up some evening should I feel the need to experience the downtown holiday shopping atmosphere — snow gently falling, carols playing, lights twinkling, cranky clerks and pushy customers. But if it didn't happen, it wouldn't mean someone might feel deprived on Christmas morning.
Yet I digress a bit. Arriving home from my shopping bender I dumped a trunk load of merchandise into one of our spare rooms, then dragged out the box of wrapping materials. Sadly, though, the process has stalled as other elements of Christmas preparation were tended to.
Unable to tolerate the chaos in my makeshift wrapping room much longer I have now, with the utmost conviction, set a goal – to have all of the presents under the tree by the middle of next week. Wish me luck.
So to keep bows and ribbons on the brain, it seemed appropriate to feature Christmas gifts in this collection of holiday illustrations.
