Gift Wrap Pledge

About 3 years ago I decided that for the next year I wouldn't buy any more giftwrap. You could say.. a little pledge to myself. Well I discovered that I could manage perfectly well without buying giftwrap, so have continued this plan forever. The thing is... I just love beautifully wrapped gifts, so no tatty recycled paper for me. Although I do reuse wrapping papers that arrive at my place, they have to be worked in to look arty or creative and beautiful.
I will post some of my wraps as I do them, and here is one I created a couple of days ago. The heart is one I decorated too.  


All packaging used here is recycled.

Mangonui
We visited this lovely coastal village yesterday, in the Far North. It was once a bustling whaling and trading port, and has some lovely heritage buildings and a heritage walking trail. The fish shop here is famous for it's fine seafood and is worth a visit, despite being a little pricey.
Note the Maori Pa site on the hill in the background
