Gift Wrapping

I started wrapping our Christmas presents because I am desperate to have something checked off my Christmas list. Every year I seem to think that I am on top of things and then all of the sudden it hits me how much I have to do still. Instead of sleeping I start obsessing as I lay in bed at night about all that I am going to do the next day. And then I spend the whole next day tired and in a daze. Yesterday it took me 3 hours to make a very simple stocking all because I felt like a zombie. Don't try to sew anything on 5 hours of sleep is my advice:) But I love making lists and checking them twice...and I love this time of year.

I have all of my gift wrapping essentials in this tool caddy, one of my favorite flea market finds.

 And I have been on a quest for very simple wrapping paper this year, I am not a fancy glittery wrapping paper fan, however that seems to be all the stores carry. Let me know if you know of any stores that carry tasteful very plain wrapping paper! I have lots of brown packaging paper but I wanted one other paper to mix with it. A roll of plain red was the best thing that I could find for now and I like it against the twine.

Ok well it is back to gift wrapping for me! Good day!


  1. I like the red! I usually stick with the kraft paper and use a different ribbon/tie each year, but now I need to look for another plain color.


  2. Love your wrapping caddy. The red looks beautiful, especially with the evergreen clippings.

  3. I am lovin it all, but really love the bucket!!!
