Advent No.21: Get to WRAPPING

{ Here we have one of the most stylish women I know! Her name is Sundee, she’s gorgeous, she’s creative, she’s fun and we still need to go thrifting together! She’s in Austin, Tx hopefully thinking about starting a blog! 😉 I love her soooo much and you will too! Enjoy and give her some love! -Ryn
p.s. thank you so much Sundee for writing for me! It’s giving me inspiration for upcoming wrapping! 😘 )

When I was younger I remember waking up to gifts under the tree wrapped in newspaper, specifically the funny comics.  I’m sure this gave my sisters and me a giggle, but was just a stamp of my Mom’s creativity and resourcefulness.  In an effort to spend more on our gifts instead of gift wrapping she had to venture outside of the box-LITERALLY!

I can hear her saying, “Don’t use a box, put it in a cute tin pail!  Don’t use a box, put it in a woven basket!”  And so on and so forth.  I still like to use boxes, but definitely endeavor to SPRUCE it up!

As an adult I’ve adopted her creative trait.  I get immense pleasure out of presenting a gift and receiving the much coveted Ohhh’s and Ahhh’s!

So this post is nod to my Mom who taught me her creative ways and to whom I will always be grateful and feel a little extra pressure to make sure her gifts are wrapped with extra uniqueness and PIZAZZ!

Now put on some Christmas tunes and get to WRAPPING!
