has anyone else been a tad busy lately….? i have not been updating and have missed it! this week has been full of office parties, shopping, and gift wrapping. we decorated the house and hosted our christmas party this week and i will be sharing more on these tomorrow. for most people, this is the week spent getting that last christmas gift and gift wrapping. i have always loved wrapping presents – i am detail oriented….the love and time put into the wrapping are another part of the gift. gift wrapping is best while watching a movie or listening to christmas tunes. here are some of my holiday wrapping essentials that i keep in my studio year round and have ready for the holidays.
