Christmas gift wrapping

Christmas gift wrapping

I actually got around to wrapping some presents last night – hooray for a glimmer of productivity! Here’s a peek at what will be waiting under the Christmas tree this year :-) Kraft paper, washi tape, metallic sharpies, and colored paper is all it takes to make me happy as a clam for a few hours. Is it too late to drop everything and become a professional gift wrapper? You can find instructions for making the sweet origami bows here.

Also thanks again to everyone who entered my 24 Merry Days giveaway! Danica K. is the winner of the $50 gift certificate to Umbra, and Patti M. will receive the one to Diament Jewelry – congrats, ladies! Don’t be bummed out if you didn’t win this round, you can still try your luck at snagging a camera bag I’ve been coveting, pretty notebooks & cards, a tote bag that transforms into a backpack (!), a subscription to Umba box, a pretty necklace, a luxe robe, color blocked bowls, and a gift certificate to Wit & Whistle. Happy Friday!

    Those bows are amazing — soo cute! I still haven’t wrapped and I am feeling seriously guilty for it… it’s at the top of my list! And maybe I’ll even try to tackle a bow or two. :)
