Sorry I’ve been a little light on the posts lately. It’s Christmastime! That means there’s a whole lot going on at all times over here.

So usually, I go out and buy 3-4 rolls of fancy shmancy Christmas wrapping paper in coordinating colors & patterns. The problem is that we never use up all of them in one year, and I can’t use the stuff from previous years because it doesn’t match!! And then my husband usually goes and spoils the whole thing by wrapping his presents to me in whatever wrapping paper he can find in the bin. I know, can you believe it??

This year, I didn’t feel like buying more Christmas wrapping paper that was just going to end up cluttering up my wrapping paper box and be rejected for use in future years. So I decided to simplify things. (more…)
