Christmas Wrapping

12.24.2014



Yes. I did just finish Christmas wrapping. For some reason, I've been a Christmas procrastinator lately. You know that song"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"? That's the complete antithesis of my christmas mood status if there was such a thing as one. It could be the fact that it's a smoldering hot 75 degrees (time to break out the flip-flops--not even joking). Or the fact that I'm growing older. *Cue the flashbulb memories of elementary years and the tear-version of a slow clap where I spazzticly burst into tears* 

So I've been trying to prolong Christmas because it's hitting me way too soon. But there's just one thing. Christmas is tomorrow. So after coming to terms with reality and mindlessly watching ABC Family movies on Netflix (this is what my life has come to--as explained in my previous post), I've assembled my trusty DIY kit.

Like my christmas cookies, I channeled my inner Pablo Picasso and stuck with a theme: Au natural. Funny story. During one of my habitual escapades to my treasured trio stores: Home Goods, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls, I spotted some thread at the corner of my eye. After swiftly grabbing it and thinking some random customer lazily abandoned it in the cooking section, I realized it was cooking twine. *face palm*. But, being more conscious of overconsumption when it comes to the holidays, it ended up pleasantly working out. On that eco-friendly-ish note, I decided to repurpose my ginormous, emblazoned christmas tree by adding some lush touches of greenery as accoutrements to my gift boxes! 

(Side note: the cranberries are as fake as the photoshopped Britney on Women's Health mag--why mess with the amazingness that is Britney Spears? But that's a totally different post altogether so I'll stop this erratic tangent)

Another eco-friendly tip: recycle old parchment paper and grab some white paint and a generic #2 pencil (which all of us probably have unnecessarily superfluous amounts of from our school years). Use the eraser butt of the pencil and dab some white paint on it. Then add polka dots to add some whimsy and retro flair. It's a quick fix and personally a much more minimalist yet chic touch compared to the cringe-worthy, tacky wrapping paper with every christmas color spontaneously splashed on.

Oh and one more thing...
Merry Christmas and  Happy Holidays!

  17. Ok, so first off, these presents are literally too good to be true. Like, why does nothing I create ever look that good? And dipping an eraser in paint for those perfect dots is genius. I'm so stealing that. Hope you had the most amazing holidays!!!!
