A significant corner of our spare room houses rolls and bags of ribbons, twine, grosgrains I have accumulated over the years. This year I promised I would not add to it, but just use what's there. I pulled out the plastic table runner I bought from Dimmeys and cut it up into strips to spruce up some of the brown craft parcels...
It never occurred to me to over up our offensive heater until I saw the this lovely mantle over at Dottie Angel a few months ago. So now whilst one of our walls remains bare, our mantle is a little prettier this Christmas..
Abit disorganize this year, normally I would have worked out my wrapping paper colours and made my cards by now. This year I've opted not to put up a tree and will stack the pressies around the tree stump I found from the road side.
I pulled out the left over Amy Butler craft paper from the engagement party and made some paper chains to hang randomly around the windows and disguise our ugly mantle. I think the last time I made paper chains I was about 5 yrs old... I might end up looking childish and naff. Meh, so what! 'Tis the silly season after all!
