That's French for gift-wrapping! Or, so the online French-to-English converter says. Hopefully, it's correct, and I'm not actually cursing at you in French. LOL! :0)

I spent all morning wrapping up packages for swaps and such. Most importantly, I finally finished putting together my 7 days swap for my little French friend, Pauline.

We had to select at least 7 scrapbooking or crafting-related items, wrap them individually, and tell why exactly we selected those items for the gifts. As always, I went a little bit above and beyond, and sent 10 things. But, it was so much fun! I hope that she likes it, and can't wait to see what kind of French goodies I receive in return!

I also wrapped up Melanie's RAK, and a little pumpkin patch-kage for Tina.

I love giving gifts...probably more than I actually enjoy receiving them. Anyway, I will be off to the post office bright and early in the a.m. to get these all sent out.

Some other little random tittles...Luka stood up for the first time on his own last night. I didn't manage to get any pictures of it. By the time I got the camera, he would have already fallen down again. But, I did get this cute little photo:

I don't know why he makes this face, but he has figured out that it makes everyone laugh. So, of course, he does it all the time (while making some weird snorting noise). Cute little guy, huh? I got some Halloween cards done today, and here's a peek:

That's all for today. I'm off to watch Smokin' Aces. I've been putting it off for several days because everyone keeps telling me that it was a little bit disappointing. I'll have to let you know what I think.
