My Little Elf

Lois, the helpful elf, designed our wrapping paper this year. It's a good thing, too, because I've been a little behind this year and wasn't sure what I'd do for my wrapping. I always like something fun and creative, so I got out a few rolls of kraft paper and some crayons, and with some scribbles here and there, me and Lois made our wrapping paper. We tied the packages with gold raffia ribbon adorned with mismatched buttons, and wrote gift tags using scraps of vintage wrapping paper. Most of our packages are on their way to loved ones, so now I have to get back to wrapping so our little tree doesn't look so lonely!

oh, they do look splendid! so sweet and festive.

p.s. love your new profile picture - you look like you should be in an Alfred Hitchcock movie.

p.p.s. i'm looking for the post where you say what model of camera you have, but i can't find it. i'm about to get a digital slr to replace my camera (which Iris threw on the floor, the beast!) and i'm not sure what to get...

Thanks for the sweet comments! Nath, the camera I'm using now is a Canon 7D, but until just recently I was using a Canon Rebel XTi (and for a while a T1i, until that one went missing). The lens I used here is a 50mm f1.2, which gives it that really shallow depth of field.
