It wasn't about the presents underneath the tree...

...Instead it was all about their wrapping.
As you get older you get less gifts being that the things you want now cost a lot more mullah. So, in an effort to make every gift count and feel over the top special, I created a unique bow for each and every gift. Plus, I just love doing that kind of crap. You know, the stuff that takes so much time to prepare and then only has a very brief moment in the sun. That's why once I spent weeks doing paper mache on a bunch of balloons to make these ball center pieces for an event that was two hours long, and why in the eighth grade I would go to school extra early on a friends birthday to decorate their locker and fill it full of balloons so that when they opened it they would all come pouring out, and why I once drove ten hours straight home and cut up a huge refrigerator box to look like a giant gift box with a lid and wrapped it and got inside it and had my best friend open it up for her 18th Birthday... it's all about a moment. A moment to make something just a little more special for someone else. They may not remember the detail but they can probably remember the feeling.

So, I know I am behind on the whole Christmas thing but, I hope you can still enjoy.
