It's A Wrap: Holiday Edition

My oh my, how's everyone doing today?
I was all snuggled in my bed with my fluffy puppy this morning, when I woke up to a text from BF saying it snowed! What a great way to wake up! :)

Luckily KC just got a light dusting, but it made my work commute about 90 minutes... gee whiz! Good thing I had my Christmas music to keep me company, eh?

So, like most of you, I have Christmas on my mind and can barely believe it's less than 3 weeks away! I made a point to purchase Christmas presents early, so almost everyone is checked off my list! Now all I have to do is the wrapping...




Never before have I purchased everything in enough time to add personal touches to the wrapping, so this is my year! I am loving the brown paper and twine themed gift wrapping this year! Here are a few photos that I'm using for inspiration...








Now if only I had these things to help me out... I mean how cool would it be to have a gift wrap ROOM!?

  1. I'm wrapping all of my presents (except the kids "santa" presents, of course) in brown kraft paper. I bought a bunch of glitter ornaments (think reindeer, snowflakes, etc) last year on clearance, so I'm using them on the outside of the packages with red and silver ribbon!

  3. I love wrapping... SO MUCH FUN! haha I like to wrap all fancy too sometimes.

    I saw it snowed in KC. Just had a friend move there and they posted the pics from their apartment window. We do not get a lot of "that white stuff" here in Alabama LOL
