Back from a lovely weekend in Vermont with my sweetie and all I can think about is Christmas is 6 days away! I still have a few presents to buy which may prove a bit challenging this week and I just can't wait to be done with the stores and home for the wrapping. I'm excited to delve into my creative side and pretty all these packages up. 

I'll be using brown kraft paper, striped paper if I can find it, twine, seashells, doily's, crocheted snowflakes, and some of the many branches we had to cut off our Christmas tree because we thought we lived in a mansion when we cut it down :) 

I will post pictures of my finished products once I get to them (hopefully soon), but in the meantime check out these beauties:
