Blogmas Day Two: Christmas Cards and Present Wrapping

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Day Two of Blogmas! I did miss yesterday, I was incredibly busy and didn’t have time to write, so I’m going to be double posting. This post is going to be about my 2018 Christmas cards and a little look at how I’ve done some present wrapping and we’re going to start with the cards.

This year my cards are Charlie Brown themed and I think they’re super cute. When I pick out cards each year I don’t have a predetermined theme in mind, it’s usually whatever catches my eye and I never do the same card two years in a row. It’s a little hard to tell in the pictures, but Snoopy and Woodstock are raised up so it gives it some dimension. I like that the design on the envelope extends to back so you see something when you’re opening it and I like that the saying on the inside isn’t leaning one way or another and it’s just a nice holiday sentiment.






So, on to the present wrapping portion of this post. This year I’m exchanging gifts with a good friend of mine like I always do but the difference is we’re in different states, so we’re shipping gifts to each other and that meant that I had to finish my shopping early and get these wrapped up and sent out, which I did. I find present wrapping to be very creative and therapeutic, so I really like it. I’m not going to say what these gifts are, but I’m going to be doing a Friendsmas post in the coming weeks and I’ll talk about what we got each other. When I wrap presents I try to have a theme, think about the person and tie everything together. So I’m going to start off by saying that this isn’t everything for this person, just what I had at the time when I took these pictures. For my wrapping paper I used the blue because I like the pattern and the fact that it’s double sided, the gold was for the stocking stuffers which I wouldn’t normally wrap up, but I thought it would be cuter that way and I used the red as a tie in between the stocking stuffer presents and stocking itself which is red. I do have bows, but this felt more like a ribbon occasion, so I did silver with the blue paper, gold with the red and silver on the gold to make it feel cohesive and because silver and gold is a popular theme for Christmas. I then curled the ribbon. Like I said I’ll be doing a Friendsmas post so you’ll be able to see all of the gifts together. I think it came together nicely and I’m happy with it.








That about wraps it up for this post, when you guys wrap presents do you prefer bows, ribbon or both?

Until next time, what do you guys look for in Christmas cards and have fun wrapping presents :).

Blogmas Day 16: Present wrapping

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day 16! Today I’m going to be talking about present wrapping, it’s getting to that time and I always enjoy seeing how other people wrap their presents, so I thought I would share how I do mine. Now I don’t have everything yet, I ordered mostly online this year and I’m still waiting for those things to come. But what I do have is one of the gifts for a friend of mine, she and I are doing Friendsmas, and gifts for my niece and nephew.


So, starting with the gifts for my niece, before I wrap any present for anyone I look at all my wrapping paper and try to figure out which suits that person the best. And once I do that I get the tags, bows, ribbons and boxes if I’m using them. I wanted to keep it quite young and fun so I went with this Santa paper that is reversible.



One thing I don’t have and I need to go buy is ribbon. But I did take the time to find a tag and a bow that I thought went well with the paper.


For the Friendsmas present, I wanted to go for something that was on the classier side and I had this paper that I bought recently but forgot about and I’m happy I found it because I think it’s great paper. And it’s also reversible, I didn’t know that when I bought it but I quite like the other side.






That about wraps it up for this post, I personally love wrapping presents. I find it to be very calming and relaxing and I’m really happy with the way these two came out.

Until next time, I hope you guys are enjoying Blogmas and have fun wrapping presents :).
