This post doesn't quite fit into my previous imitation series, as I stumbled upon the link I'm including after I had made what I'm about to share with you. I've been making the wrapping paper for all of our Christmas gifts this year. Michelle, apparently, has been, too. And since Michelle's blog is so beautiful and our wrappings are loosely similar, I wanted to include a link to her post about the gorgeous paper she made - even if it wasn't technically the inspiration for mine. Without further ado, here's my final crafty attempt for this holiday season:
Simple. Brown shipping paper stamped and tied with layers of ribbon. Done.
Or, at least, done with what I'm able to post here. Last year at Christmas, my siblings and our spouses promised each other that we'd be exchanging only handmade gifts this year (how convenient that our promise coincided with this year's handmade pledge). We're trying to make them all ourselves. Barry and I are in the process of finishing them up... Who am I kidding? We're in the process of starting a few of them, too. I'll be posting lots of handmade goodness in the new year, after all has been exchanged. Until then, blogging may be sparse, but my wishes for happy holidays for you and your family are as strong as ever.
