Houston, we have a problem.
And it's Not My Fault.
I have almost 22 POUNDS of gift bags. TWENTY TWO POUNDS.
(I guess I like to weigh things around here.)
The pink bag has Halloween and Valentine bags in it. The green bag is Baby gift bags only.
And this last one, weighing in at 14 lbs on its own, is Birthday.
I'm sorry. I know this sounds like I'm being all "oh, POOR me, SO MANY PEOPLE give us presents, WAAAH," Really, we are a family of five with generous extended family and friends. We are! Yay for Us! They all love to give gifts in bags. In nice bags. Fancy bags. Themed bags.
And I am a Wrapper. So unless I donate them or remember to give the bags themselves as gifts to other people, THE BAGS NEVER LEAVE MY HOUSE. It's like a special gift bag museum. And I am the reluctant curator.
They were taking up way too much space in my craft studio, so they were evicted this weekend... and now they are homeless, per se. Sitting in my laundry room. Dreaming of living in the Spelling's Gift Wrap Room.
( Oh, and these photos does not represent the Christmas stash, most of which I donated this year. I cannot justify the amount of square footage that it takes to store all of these bags!)
What to do, what to do.
I think I'm going to bring an extra 22 pounds to Friday Morning Coffee this week and give each of my girlfriends special gift-free gift bags. Yay for them!!!
What would YOU do with 22lbs of pretty gift bags??? Really, because I'd like to know.
Thanks bunches. xoxo
