It's begining to look a lot like Christmas!!!

We had our first snow of the season last night, so I got to wake up to this:

And quickly decided to brush the snow off my car and venture out to do a little Christmas shopping.
I love Christmas.  I love shopping.  But I really, really, love.....wrapping presents.
Last week I won this cute little stocking via 'Oh Apostrophe' (Thanks Again!) and loved the unexpected blue and bright green as 'Christmas' colors.

So, I decided to incorporate those colors into our Christmas wrapping this year.
Our bright and cheery Christmas palette:

...and it's begining to look a lot like Christmas! Round one of presents have been wrapped, bowed, tagged and placed under our tree.

Our tree is a little scraggly, but she was homegrown, and free :)

Whenever I say I LOVE wrapping presents people always look at me like I'm crazy.  Are you one of those people?  or do you love a nicely wrapped package as much as I do?


  1. I love wrapping gifts too! I feel like such a slacker though, up until today I hadn't even started shopping!

  2. Yay! I'm so glad you like it! Looks awesome!

  3. i LOVE wrapping presents! i have wrapped all the gifts for various non-wrapping friends in the past few years just to get my fix! :)

  4. Um, no. I love wrapping presents. Definitely ranks at the top of my Christmas Fun List.

  5. Well that was really good posting. I liked it.

  6. I'm all about the nice packaging! I think it rounds out the decorations. I think I might have those same ornaments (IKEA?).

  7. @Kasey - YUP! We bought them a few years ago when we were s.o.o.c. (straight out of college) and broke :)
