As we inch closer and closer to Valentine's Day, I am thinking of how much I love to wrap gifts. For me, it's not about the paper, although that sometimes plays a factor; it's about the accents-the ribbon, crystals, rhinestones, and anything else I may be using to embellish my presents.
My three daughters join me in gift wrapping for Valentine's Day. After we've spent an afternoon hand making gifts and cards for our loved ones and one another, we then spend an afternoon w... Read More
