“If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.”

-Napoleon Bonaparte

With the holiday season upon us, lists and lists are compiling in my busy, over analytical head.  Determining what to get everyone is always somewhat a task for Damon and I - kids are never a problem, they can list off everything they want in 10 seconds FLAT! And Emilee - oh she is very specific these days.  She tells me, "I want a horse, but not a real horse, just a toy horse."  LOL Thanks for the clarification dear sweet one - oh how I love her so.  The adults are different - they typically will tell you the same thing every year - socks, underwear or a movie.  Really?  That's all you could POSSIBLY want?  I don't think so!  But then again I'm the same way in that regard.  

And wrapping paper - I love wrapping paper, but man the price is such a rip for the quality and amount you get these days... Maybe its just my way of finding something about the holidays to grumble about. Thus a project has been formed!



I'm going to attempt my own wrapping paper this year, full of creativity and personalization!  I can't wait to start!  Now I just need stamps, fun ribbon, tape and brown butcher paper!

  1. Yay for more wrapping paper inspiration! I skip the brown butcher paper and use the inside of paper bags from the grocery store. A great way to recycle AND save money (which is key in my book!)
