A favorite blogger...............wraps simply and beautifully

I have always loved how Gigi of The Magpie's Fancy  turns her words into something that gives me pause, how she sees everything around her at home in Portland, Maine.....the day-to-day wonder that can be just outside our door if we look closely as she does as she moves through her day. I knew that Gigi likes to gift wrap, she has often told me so as we comment back and forth, but I was charmed by her post yesterday on Simple Gifts. I thought her post captured the heart of gifting this holiday season, to give thoughtfully..............simply and beautifully.

  1. Most definitely charming. Those pinecone candles are cute as cute can be. How I wish Gigi was my Santa, perhaps she'd adopt me?

    Thank you Sande for the reminder to hop on over to read 'The Magpie's Fancy'.

  3. I love how she has created beautiful wrapping with simple items. I am planning on using what I have on hand this year as well. I think I'm using yarn instead of ribbon, and I'm going to try out some glitter.

  6. Thank-you so much for featuring Gigi's is lovely, photography makes me envious and her packages are lovely. I placed her blog in my favs and joined her followers. I was planning on using brown paper and white paper this year for my packages and this just confirms it!

  8. Oh, Sande, what a sweet surprise and an honor to be featured on your blog! One of the things that first drew me to A Gift Wrapped Life was how beautifully you often reuse items, giving them a new life and imbuing them with such beauty and creativity. I have taken so much inspiration from you ever since I received a gorgeous package in one of your giveaways via our mutual pal, DJ. To this day, it is the most exquisitely wrapped package I have ever opened. Thank you, my friend, for sharing my simple gifts with your readers. xoxo Gigi

  9. Sande, I like the way you present packages in the most unique and elegant way. Especially now at this time of the year I look forward to being inspired with my presentations.


Your comments are such a lovely addition to my day. Thank you.
