All Wrapped Up

In case you are like me this weekend and in search of inspiration for pretty wrapped Christmas presents.










We are having the most delicious kick off to our holiday season today. The snow has been flying since before we woke up, there is a roast chicken in the oven, the tree has been decorated and we saw our first ever Village Christmas parade this morning. I am taking the time to really enjoy the season this year. I hope that you are too.

Oh Jan- You just make me long for what seems a simpler life like you have in the Village. I am SOOO happy for you-that your dreams have come true! Love all those wrapped packages. I need to get shopping so I have something to wrap! Hugs- Have a great day- Diana

I love the brown paper and red ribbon idea. That is what I've decided on this year. Simple but oh so lovely. Enjoy the snow :)

Snow in the Village! I can just picture how pretty it must be. I just took a peek at your forecast (weather nerd alert) and it looks like it should stick around for a while. Enjoy your winter wonderland, JJ!

I wish I was as creative as you. All of your packages look like they came straight out of a magazine, just beautiful. By the way, I'm holding a giveaway on my blog for Orglamix Organic makeup and you're welcome to come by and enter. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2010/12/orglamix-organic-mineral-makeup-review.html

Jen,
My signature? Curling ribbon. Even if it ties together the handles on a gift bag.

I usually use brown paper at Christmas, but my bows never look that good!

Love the rainboots! I always try to use something different to put my girls' stocking gifts in that can be used later. Last year I used shopping totes. This year I just ordered cute rainboots from Target! Thanks for the inspiration!!

No snow here yet...possibly Saturday. It's fine with me this year. Last year we had 2 blizzards and snow was on the ground for most of the winter. This is Kansas, not Minnesota!! So, I'll be OK till it decides to finally snow :) Cheers!

Thanks for all of the wrapping inspiration. I've been collecting vintage christmas picks all year at the flea markets to use on my wrapped gifts. I'm really looking forward to using them.

oh i love all of that! i have some of the same pictures as well torn out and saved. Gotta decided how I am going to wrap this year...

RACHELLE said...

First i need to shop...then i will wrap my little heart out! :)

I am a bit of a slacker in the christmas shopping department....

But it's just cuz i am so darn picky about what i get for people.

and then dont even get me started on the wrapping...it's just as much fun as the gift itself!

thank you for the Inspiration!
