Wanted: Your old wrapping paper

January 4th, 2010 · 2 Comments

We have something nasty at our house.  The flu?  A really bad cold?

C&D are spending a lot of their time horizontal on the furniture or even on the floor.  (But not the bed . . . too many connotations of sleep there!)  I totally understand—I’m sick, too.

Now and then, though, we all have little bursts of energy.  I clean, C&D dance.  Or, for the past week or so, we sit down and cut snowflakes.

C&D are awesome snowflake-cutters, but we’re having a small paper crisis.  The paper I have on hand is mostly too thin or too thick.  Snowflakes are easier to cut when the paper is thick enough to fold sharply, but thin enough to cut through several layers.  If I remember right, shiny gold or silver wrapping paper is just about right.  If you have any leftover from Christmas or see any while you’re out and about this week, I’m sure C&D would appreciate it if you sent some along.  To send the roll just wrap it up in brown paper, and then use postcalc.USPS.gov to calculate postage for a package.  In thanks C&D can send you some snowflakes back.  :)

    Would love to see you soon! But if it is this week . . . make sure when you get up that morning you put your biohazard suit on. :) Or we can just talk through the mail slot. :D
