Please keep in mind
#1 I am no expert, nor do I play one on my blog. I adore a thoughtfully wrapped gift, but I am not a snob. Plenty of last minute back-of-the-hall-closet-behind-the-vacuum-cleaner-wrinkled-bags-with-one-handle-missing-and-crumpled-tissue-paper-found-on-the-floor presents have left this house and
I do not and never will think that this is wrong or in any way inferior.
But. Sometimes you want to do a lil' something extra. Maybe the gift itself isn't so fabulous and you've gotta compensate with a great presentation. Or maybe you're like me and enjoy playing with packages just because it's fun.
#2 Kicking it up a notch does not mean spending lots of time, money or having loads of fancy schmancy wrapping paper. None of that hurts, but it's certainly not necessary.
So. All month long we're gonna talk about
*using what you already have
*the little things that can make a big difference and
*simple ideas that you can use as inspiration. Because sometimes you just need the concept and then you can change it up using the stuff that you've got and create your own magic. I'm pretty sure that's in a Disney movie somewhere.
Are you ready? Let's do this.
