BASKET WRAPPING DAY!

Every year my very sweet, kind, generous and talented friend makes some of the most luxurious soaps, scrubs and bath soaks to pamper myself with. Thank you, Lisa! Each year I put my order in, and then I treat those special people on my gift list with these wonderful items. Here's how I packaged this years goodies!

This photo is of a purse I made from Becky Robert's 12 Days of Christmas Class. You can find her pattern HERE. The purse box has two little bath soaks in it. One is the most refreshing citrus~~love the way it wakes me up and helps me feel all peppy! The other one is a very relaxing Rosemary and Sage, which is the perfect end to a very hectic day.



This is a little Top Note Die Box that has some Celtic Sea Salt Scrub in it. In addition to smelling wonderful, this scrub is totally remarkable! I save this one for when I come home from traveling. It is one of those "comfort" things for me.


Here is a little eye pillow. I stick mine in the freezer and on those mornings when I've had a late bedtime (always due to too much stamping and not being able to stop myself), I pull it out and set it on my tired puffy eyes~~then, voila, I am good to go! I gave Lisa some of the Stampin' Up! Designer Fabric to use so they would match the other goodies in my basket.


This is a jar of Brown Sugar Scrub. Now, this little ditty can only be enjoyed in the tub with a nice glass of wine and a good book. Lisa says you can use it in the shower, but I'm afraid she is wrong! This needs to be savored and enjoyed in a way that doesn't happen in my shower. I need to pair it with the wine, because it smells good enough to eat, and I am afraid that without that wine taste going on, I would eat the whole jar....



This picture is just the lid of the Brown Sugar Scrub jar, and it just tells you what's in the little jar!
