I hope you all had a wonderful and restful holiday weekend! I try to savor each holiday and season as it comes, but this year I’ve been bursting at the seams to deck the halls and spread some yuletide cheer. For better or for worse, I’ve decided to make and package handmade Christmas gifts this year. This seems like a good idea now…check back in with me around 2:37 AM on Christmas Eve as I sit under the tree chugging hot chocolate while I wrestle with craft supplies that, while once appeared adorable, become the bane of my existence. Too dramatic? Maybe it won’t be so bad. I’m hoping it will be fun, rewarding, beautiful and unique. And of course, I’m going to document the journey with you, my readers! I’ll update as I get further along in the process.
I’m armed with some pretty great supplies: trendy Ikea giftwrap, shimmery twine, holiday tissue paper, brown kraft paper, stamps and metallic ink.
