Right before Thanksgiving, Nancy Crevier, the lovely writer from our beloved hometown newspaper, The Newtown Bee, and I were chatting up a storm, and the subject of wrapping gifts for the holidays came into play. The discussion led to the sometimes challenging wrapping of a box. As a self-taught wrapper, I remember my very early days of wrestling with boxes, and since then have relied on a simple method that has now become second nature to me. All it takes is an itty-bitty bit of practice.
So that gave Nancy the idea of documenting me, with her trusty cell phone, covering gifts (figuratively and literally) that are more commonly exchanged – to sharing some uncommon ideas. And as you see for yourself, she shot just a smidge from what I would call “My Gift Wrap Repertoire” for the good people of Newtown, and beyond, to see. And to think it all started quite simply with a box.
Monday I’ll feature The Newtown Bee’s ‘Little Lesson’ Part 2. And please go to www.newtownbee.com (under the Features tab) to read Nancy’s whole story. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks Nancy and The Bee!
