This time of year, there is so much to do. Luckily, there are people like Kathleen Miller here to help! Kathleen will come to your home and wrap one or all of your Christmas gifts!
When she arrived, Kathleen shared with me several samples of her business calling cards. They are adorably wrapped as presents on one side (handmade!), and on the other is a description of her services.
(Yes, that is a tape measure bottom front, left — and super glue sticking up with a blue cap behind the tape! Who knew the tools that would be useful to Ms. Elf!)
The text on her card reads:
“Gift-Wrapping right at your home…
