Wrap An E-Book, Really

Iko has graduated. And he performed his final exam to near perfection. I was so proud. 

I was a little worried though. We've had a guest dog at our house since Friday and interruptions to his routine sometimes drive him to distraction. You remember my fluffy terror, the chicken chaser, don't you? Yes, Princess is back.

Iko's true test comes next week. We ordered furniture over the weekend. It'll get here on Christmas Eve. This time we picked out two sofas, one in leather with theater-like seating, and the other cloth. That one looks just right for napping. :grin:

***
Jennifer Shirk invited me to blog at her group blog, Passionate Critters where they're hosting the 12 days of e-books. I racked my brains trying to come up with a fun post for this series and I discovered that nowhere in the entire span of the internet has anyone ever written about how to wrap an e-book. 

Eureka! I found my topic. So I came up with a couple of novel solutions that are not only easy to do, but also memorable.

They are super-easy projects that take less time to make than wrapping a gift box. Check it out and let me know what you think.

I'm taking the rest of this week off, but I'll be back on Christmas Day. I hope you'll come back and visit with me after you've had your fill of food and company.

Popped over from Jen's blog. Visited you over at Passionate Critters. Nice e-book post. (Though I love to curl up with the real thing.) hehe

Here's hoping Iko passes his true test. Love the pic.

Maria Zannini said...

Jennifer: Thank you so much for inviting me!

Rula: That was the only picture of Iko where he wasn't wiggling (too much). He wasn't crazy about the hat.

Maria Zannini said...

Hiya Robyn! And welcome!

Iko has a chewing addiction. Hopefully, he won't take it out on the new furniture otherwise he may be in jail the rest of his life.

Way to go, Iko! I knew you had it in you. And the hat is just so you.

A very Merry Christmas to you, Maria, and to Greg, Tank, Iko, the chickens, and all the gang.

Aw, what a handsome grad. He does look proud.
Have a wonderful holiday Maria!

Madeleine said...

That's a fun idea. I like your suggestions fro wrapping e-books. I guess if the person got a kindle from you as well then you could wrap the ebook on the kindle!
HAPPY CHRISTMAS MARIA ;O)

Maria Zannini said...

Cate: Merry Christmas, hon! Glad you stopped by.

Madeleine: Wrapping an e-book inside the Kindle would be the BEST wrapping paper, that's for sure. :)

Merry Christmas, Madeleine!

Marian Perera said...

For a moment there I thought "Critters" means raccoons and other small animals... but I would've checked it out anyway. :)

Have a great Christmas, Maria!
