    So here's the deal... I'm sure many of you are probably wondering where the money's going to come from this year, so I have decided I am going to do a few extra sidelines... one of them being gift experience services (wrapping, writing cards, sending items in the post, that sort of moo).

    That's why I'm asking this question... I obviously LOVE IT or I wouldn't be putting myself through handing out leaflets to all and sundry.... :rofl:

    Also, any input on my little venture would be greatly apprecited :D

    Ughhh I hate wrapping presents. I am the worst gift-wrapper of all time. I'm a gift bag lover, and even then I can barely get the tissue paper right.

    I hate wrapping gifts
    Me and Hubby make it a coordinated effort. He wraps, I tag. Works like a charm, and saved me having to do the bits I really hate.

    Hope you'll get some people interested in your services so you can that little extra =) Personally, I'm too cheap. I wouldn't want to hand over money for someone to do something I could do, even if I hated it. But I'm sure there's those that think different about it.

    Quite honestly, I don't like wrapping gifts. I used to like it before I had so many kids in my life. LOL

    I LOVE IT !!! but I do tend to go over board with the bows and tags, I love having all my presents matching, if someone gives me a present and it is not the right colour of wrapping paper I will re-wrap it to match mine:blush: and the sames goes if it is not wrapped nicely I will re-wrap :blush: I know I am a dork.
