A Personal Touch


Hello!
Last night we had Chris's company Christmas party. Every year he gives those in attendance a bottle of wine and a restaurant gift card to take home. I wanted to add a personal touch to the wine bottles, so I turned to my Festive Labels set by Gina K. Designs. What I really wanted to do was to use her Waterproof Labels to create a personalized label for each bottle, but the labels on some of the wines he chose were too long to be covered properly. So, I did the next best thing, which was to create a gift tag for each bottle. I did three different variations -- 21 tags total. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out! It was a simple thing that made a big difference in the presentation!

Today we're getting our first "snowstorm" of the season. It's really coming down, and it's so beautiful to look at. Kyle, Megan and Anna were outside having a blast, and they just came in to have some hot chocolate and sit by the fire. Today is Caroline's 4th birthday, so Chris took her out for a Birthday Breakfast (he does that with all the kids). It's going to be a laid-back, wintery day -- I'm looking forward to just enjoying time with my family today! I hope you have a wonderful day, too -- thanks for stopping by! :)
