Ready or Not....

Christmas is coming....ready or not!
Cards to write and presents to wrap. It's all good, if a little crazy busy.
I made this pocket folder to hold my Xmas cards and postcards.

I really do enjoy wrapping gifts (all year round). And, I love a neutral palette....
I really like using books pages as wrapping. And after they are unwrapped, the recipient can use the papers for collage.
We're all for creative re-use.

I also love brown kraft paper. I wish I knew where I found this one with the white dots because I want more of it....




Sometimes I do like more traditional Xmas wrap -- especially if it has airmail stripes and a postal theme!

I even broke out the vintage tags this year instead of hoarding....er....saving them....


A little Cavallini paper slipped in there too....



I also love buying various sizes of these clear bags at Diaso and making little packs of cool things....doesn't that look nice?


When I'm traveling I always notice how beautifully things are wrapped in places like France and Italy....every day is a holiday.

So, what are you using to wrap? 
Hope you get a little inspiration from my ideas. Now put on that holiday music and sip a little eggnog and get to work!
Santa needs all the help he can get spreading happiness.
I'm off to the SF Correspondence Co-Op Holiday party tonight!

  1. I love your gift wrapping! But I "save" a lot of stuff too... ahum. In all honesty, I don't wrap my gifts, I get a nice little bag or reuse ones that I got and fully expect the receiver to do the same. :)

  2. I have been offline for over a day due to my internet and phone lines being down. I wanted to stop by and tell you how much I really LOVE this post. It was gift wrapped just for me, I'm sure.

    I admit I'd never heard of panettone until I stumbled on a cooking show that used it. French version of the dreaded fruitcake we all love to hate.

    I measure my gifts, then use old red rosin paper that has been on my work table. I sew three sides, then wrap my gift inside. I usually sew the top, then. Sometimes I use repositionable glue. Thanks for sharing how you wrap yours and sharing how some others are wrapped. Love this.

  3. These look fantastic. Can I outsource by 2020 gift wrapping to you?
