How’s everyone doing? Are we stressed over the whole holiday thing yet? I admit, I am. I baked all day yesterday and sent out several packages of cookies. I’m even stressing over whether they’ll make it to their destinations in tact. Ah, Christmas.
Next I should probably get the rest of the presents wrapped and shipped….
I’ve been saving this photo since last Christmas. I love that such a simple idea can make such a beautiful present. I happened to see a similar string of “crystals” and “pearls” in the Christmas ribbon aisle at Michael’s the other day too.
…and using fabric would be so easy to do. No ribbon or bows necessary.
Even more brown paper jazzed up with pretty things. I like the thoughtful, handmade feeling of these.
This one is my favorite, by far. For some reason, I always have old maps around. I think it’s because I love all the colors in them so I can’t bear to throw them away. I’ve been known to recycle them into envelopes, file folders, gift card holders….why not wrapping paper? I love how they’ve played up the blues in the map with that pretty blue ribbon.
Tone on tone – perfect in every way for someone like me who adores simple but pretty. Love the starfish embellishment.
Sheet music! Perfect! I have lots of that from my old piano playing days. And, it looks like another gift wrapped with fabric in the form of a handkerchief? Very cute.
Fabric again, this time in the form of burlap. I love the casual, simple look of this. I wish I could make a beautiful bow like that…..
I think I’m ready to wrap now
What about you? How far are you on your shopping and wrapping? I hope you guys are doing well and enjoying this chaotic month.
