Rou, that looks really interesting! I've had ice wine before and it was really good, and that has brandy too??

yes, because ice wine is SO sweet, this company thought that it would be a neat idea to mix it with brandy. it's still a dessert wine, but easier for most people to take than ice wine.

just as delicious!

Jess, that's just evil! I love it!

I've considered taking a picture of all the little gifts wrapped up as a tease because Santa already has all my gifts and can't return them just because I'm being naughty!

Normally I shop around for little things but time was not on my side this year so I ordered my secret curly gift online this morning and then got on a plane for the States. It should be making its way to my curly pal soon!

PANIC!!! I walk into the kitchen where my curly's gifts on on the kitchen table waiting for me to finish wrapping them and my mother is sitting, seriously messing. CODE BLUE!!!!! I said, "Mom, that's not yours!" She said, "Oh, I know." and grinned really big and put it back. I think she is contemplating pilfering!!! I missed the mail today, so I will wrap it all this evening before sticky fingers Mom comes back and I will tape it up with a vengence and excessive tape, of course. And then I'll be hiding the Tardis until Monday!

I like to recycle and reuse things. So digging around for packing materials, I found a brown paper bag from the frozen food department at Walmart. In honor of that much beloved thread here on nc.com, I have used it as packaging material.

Santa has been alerted and a pickup is scheduled for tomorrow and my package will be on the way to.... I wonder where!?!?!

Turns out it was cheaper to use a flat rate box that was bigger than the one I had already packed it up in to ship it! Which meant I got to add a few more pieces of chocolate to the box.

So check that flat rate shipping y'all, it may be cheaper.

Oh, how I hope that can become a Secret Curly standard packing item.... I hope whoever gets it appreciates the significance!

Good tip! I have some heavy items going in my boxes, so there's a very good chance that's the case for me!

Rou, I like it. And the neighborhood may go deaf for a few minutes as I run around the house shrieking with joy.

Just as an example to what you may be able to save using flat rate if your items are heavy, with my secret curly gift I saved $2, but I was also packing up something for my MIL that would have cost me $25 to ship , but ended up only costing $14.65. Plus if you pay and print your label online you save!

Yep, I always do the labels online and it's WONDERFUL! You want to really see how much you save? Compare prices of UPS or FedEx to USPS flat rate boxes

When you print your labels on USPS.com, you have the option to click a box and have shipping updates sent to your email automatically. I lurve getting these emails!!! Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
