This blogmas thing is a lot harder than I expected. I guess deciding to do it on a whim with no blog posts planned wasn’t my smartest decision. Also, now classes have officially ended, and exam week has begun. My life is super crazy, and I have so much to do with so little motivation. Anyway, never the less, I promised you 24 blog posts, and that is what you shall get! So, I will post an extra one this weekend to make up for yesterday’s absense. This is called day 4, because it should have been posted on day four, and I hope you lovely crew of readers will understand that. I also understand that these posts aren’t the best in the world, but I promise, I have much better ideas and plans for when I finish my exams and get back home.
Anyway, my little “sorry, but I’ve been busy” rant is over, and now I’m ready to show you my wrapping paper for this year.
Ahh! Isn’t it so cute! Now this is the first time that I have ever bought my own Christmas wrapping paper. Usually, I just use whatever is laying around the house. My mom picks it out, I use it, end of story. But this year, being away from home, I got to put on my big girl pants and pick out my very own paper!
I got this paper from Michaels, because I was in there anyway (craft stores are one of my favorite places just to wander around, and they’re even better during this time of year… Christmas is EVERYWHERE!) and they were having a wrapping paper sale. I found a few rolls that I liked, but nothing that I was dying over. I spent probably 15 minutes at the bins of wrapping paper until I spotted this one out of the corner of my eye.
Is so perfect, I can hardly stand it. And as soon as I came back from the store, I started wrapping all of my gifts. I don’t know if I have ever been more excited to wrap gifts. I don’t know if it is the craft paper kind of feel, the mountains, or the old cars that gets me so excited, but I just love it.
Geesh, I didn’t think I would be able to get a blog post just out of my wrapping paper, but lookie there! I did it. I can’t wait to bring all of my gifts home and set them under the Christmas tree. Oh goodness, I just love Christmas so so much!
I hope you guys are had an absolutely magnificent day, and are getting excited for the holidays! Where is your favorite place to shop for wrapping paper? Share your favorite paper in the comments below, unless you’re not a Christmas freak like I am and don’t get attached to your paper… then just quietly shake your head and come back for a post not about paper, tomorrow.
Peace out, enjoy life, and live the adventure.
