No dissing the Tic Toc

I’ve heard so many people commenting on social media being the downfall of polite society. The funniest part is, I actually had a psych class last semester and we actually did a study of social media effects on children. It wasn’t good. 
However, I have to say I find social media so helpful. I have gotten close with blogging land for the past 10+ years… You guys are amazing friends that are always there and always commenting so supportively throughout the years! But also, when Covid hit, I started getting into TikTok. Me and the kids would do TikTok‘s to pass the time. They’re really cute short dances set to music and you just copy someone else’s dance moves.
But that’s not all that TickTock‘s good for… It’s taught me how to clean, how to cook, how to bake bread, how to dance and now finally how to wrap presents! I learn some of the cutest present wrapping from TikTok this year. Let me just show you a few…

How to wrap a shampoo or lotion bottle that is large at the bottom and smaller at the top…


You create a flat bottom and slide the present in…then just fold over the top and tie a string through!! So simple and cute…


How to wrap a circle without it being a total mess…ha


And lastly, my favorite, how to wrap with pockets on the outside!!! You can slide a pretty flower or candy cane in the pocket, or a card or face masks like I did for my cat sitter.






Sooo cute!!!! Right!?!?!?  I don’t want to post steps here because it is not my creation but I promise if you Google “wrap with pockets” or TikTok wrapping presents you will find it. It is everywhere now!

I’m going to end this post saying that I am so happy to be on a break from nursing school. I have time to come online and read your blogs and comments and also to write my own blog entries. Next semester is going to be crazy… I’m probably not gonna be able to Blog at all… So I’m going to get my fill during this break. You will probably all be sick of me in a matter of two weeks! Lol!

Happy Thursday!!!

  1. You are so modern. I downloaded the Tik Tok app and decided there was nothing there for me. I'll stick with YouTube to find out how to do things... for now.

    1. LOL Andrew! Not modern at all...I learned out of necessity. My nieces and I used it to find fun dances to get us through Covid lockdown. TikTok saved my sanity!! HA! I love YouTube and Google...especially to fix things like car wipers and home heating units!

  2. Some gifts are tough to wrap. I have a big industrial auto shop dustpan to wrap-hmmm. Don't know if I have a big enough box and how do you disguise something like that. THanks for stopping by my blog and you kind comment. And Merry Christmas to you also.

    1. Hi Erika! That sounds like it would be a tough one and you would use a WHOLE lot of wrapping paper! HA! Maybe just buy one of those $10 fuzzy blankets and wrap it in that?? That may work?? Good luck - I hope the wrapping disguise went well!

  3. Thanks for your comments on my grandson’s Christmas cookie decos. They made me laugh!
    I have avoided TikTok because the last thing I need is another time sucker, but maybe I should be watching. I love the way you wrapped the package with the pocket on the outside.

    1. Cynthia it really can be a time sucker but I have learned so much on there and it really saved my sanity during Covid! Be careful though, everything on there is not "good" to say the very least.

    1. Thank you Christine - I loved it too but again, I can not take credit - it is someone else's genius wrapping skills - they were just nice enough to share the knowledge! HA

  6. I am the world's worst wrapper. Thankful for gift bags. I haven't done Tik Tok. I know You Tube is a resource for learning skills, but I somehow always forget to consult it. Thank you for the follow! I have followed back.

    1. It is nice to have a new friend Alana! I am a terrible wrapper too. I am not going to tell you how many times I had to watch the video and follow along before the package actually looked nice! HA HA

  7. Merry Christmas! I've been on "social media" since 2000 lol. Wayyy back I got on Moms Online which was a life saver to me as a stay at home mom for 7 years. I probably would have been crazy without it ;)
