I decided not to go as overboard as I did last year in terms of gift wrapping for Christmas; however, I did go slightly nuts. Just not as labor-intensive. I used both kraft and white paper as my base and then used this decorative packaging tape as a faux ribbon (it also makes it that much more challenging to actually open the gift). Then, playing off the garland I did on my tree (Starbucks-inspired) I made little ornament gift tags out of the same felt. I did some freehand embellishments on a couple of the gifts just for fun and I’m okay with the fact that it looks a bit kid-like. That’s the point of this season, isn’t it?

I’ll be checking in here and there over the next couple of weeks but not all that much as I’ll be home relaxing with friends and family. Happy holidays!

Where in the hell is my present?

Love the hand-drawn embellishments . . . particularly the round squiggles. Inspiring stuff! I’ll be using paper from years past — with the excuse that it’s greener than buying new. (You buying that?)

I just wrapped half my presents last night, and I’ve got to say that my ribbon curling is on fire this year. Armed with my “4 rolls for $5” Giant Eagle ribbon, I had no duds. So I can totally relate to this post.
