I know I've written before about my grandmother's Christmas tree and the wondrous packages piled beneath it. It wasn't so much wondering what was in the packages, or checking to see which ones were for me. I just loved seeing how she had wrapped them. My grandmother seemed at times to keenly regret her lack of higher education, but she absolutely had the soul of an artist and showed it in so many ways -- in the kitchen and pantry, in her seasonal decorating, and so on. Christmas was the high point of her artistic talents and of our year. Her gift-wrapping skills were amazing and I simply loved seeing the papers she had chosen. I'm drawn to gorgeous gift wrap myself, but I will not pay a lot for it.
Recently I came upon some scraps of Christmas gift wrap I had used in years gone by and had saved for crafting purposes. I thought I would scan these so others can enjoy them too.
