Teresa Collins 'In Time for the Holidays' Blog Hop!

Teresa Collins 'In Time for the Holidays' Blog Hop!

Welcome to Day 5 and the final day of the Teresa Collins Holiday Blog Hop! 

Today, I went a little overboard while wrapping my daughters Christmas present. 

Olivia is 6, and she is into pink, and sparkles and most recently into her glasses. She recently got some prescription glasses after we found out that she had a terrible eye sight. So terrible, that she may need surgery in a few months, but right now she's wearing some high prescription glasses and we are hoping this will delay or eliminate the need for surgery later on.

I made the whole getting glasses experience really fun, and got her the highest index glass possible, because she is so far sided that otherwise her glasses would look like coke bottles... NO JOKE. 

Not wanting to chance her getting picked on at school, we went with a trendy pair. And now she LOVES them! And all her friends tell her how great she looks, which really makes her feel good.

                         She looks pretty rad!

Wanting to celebrate her new look, and improved "outlook" on life, I wrapped her Christmas gift (from Mommy & Daddy)with all things nerdy & cool! 

OK, OK. This did take me a really long time! I stamped brown paper with some nerdy glasses stamp I got at Michaels (dollar section) in pink, and made a tag that I embossed with Teresa Collins eBosser & her 'Houndstooth' folder. 

The 'Houndstooth' folder is perfect! It reminds me of nerdy plaid!

The emboss is as deep as it can go without ripping, and it's seriously beautiful! 

I'm hoping she likes it! The gift, and the gift wrap too! ;)
