Gift Wrap.


Ryan and I enjoyed a fun date night on Saturday finishing up the children's Christmas shopping. I am happy to report we are completely done. Want, need, wear, read have all been purchased. Santa letters have been mailed and word on the street is those gifts have been taken care of as well. We even managed to complete their little stocking treats. Which I have to admit, usually waits until the last few moments before Santa's arrival.



What's next? Don't worry, I still have plenty to cross off my list. Christmas cards have been weighing heavily on my brain. I can't seem to nail down a design and it's seriously driving me batty. To keep myself busy during the inner turmoil I have been wrapping, wrapping, wrapping. One fun idea I had this year was to use handmade pom poms as bows. They are festive, unique, and super fun to make. You like? You can buy some for yourself here.

  4. We were so impressed with the Want/Need/Wear/Read concept that we've instituted it in our family this year.

    Thanks for the inspiration!!

  6. You always amaze me. Love the wrapping, love the pom poms, and love that you're done Christmas shopping. We've been so busy I've only got a couple things, but at least I've started!

  10. Pom poms seem to be 'in' this season. As you know, I work at Hallmark and we have some red and white ones for sale. I was thinking of buying some.

    Love your gift wrapping in that first photo. So fun!

  11. Oh Danyelle, once again, the envy of all :) I could be done with my shopping, but I am one of those weird people that actually enjoys the rush of getting up super early the day after Thanksgiving to join the masses of crazy shoppers looking for a bargain :) I'm sure you will be thinking of all of us when your sound asleep at that hour :)

  13. Those look so cute, I'd be afraid to rip them open! I bet your kids like looking at their presents as much as opening them. Very fun.
