Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

Happy Monday! I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My Thanksgiving was so great! Visiting with family really put me in the Holiday Spirit! To match my Holiday Spirit, my favorite things edition has turned Christmas (insert Christmas Carols and Holly here)!

During this time of the year, I absolutely love wrapping presents! I also adore picking out my wrapping paper for the season. This year my wrapping paper has a houndstooth pattern! I just can't get enough houndstooth right now! I love it!

I purchased a red houndstooth wrapping paper roll , a green houndstooth wrapping paper roll, and a black houndstooth wrapping paper roll from Hobby Lobby. I also purchased white, red, green, silver, and gold ribbon to accent my packages. Here's a peek of my Christmas wrapping paper!


I am actually keeping the black houndstooth paper for an everyday wrapping paper. (The package in the picture above wrapped in the black houndstooth paper is actually a birthday gift for a friend. ) Hobby Lobby also has a variety of other black and white papers in their Christmas Wrapping Paper section that can be used as everyday paper. I purchased a roll of black paper with white dots and a roll of white paper with black swirly designs to add to my everyday collection. I purchased these last week when the Christmas wrapping paper was 50% off. However, the Christmas paper is also 50% off this week! If you are near a Hobby Lobby, be sure to stop by and stock up on a few rolls of their beautiful wrapping paper. Happy Wrapping!!!

I just found your blog through Pammycakes & I'm so happy b/c your blog is fabulous! This wrapping paper is so pretty - I'm semi-obsessed with houndstooth! Ok, so there is a Hobby Lobby close by.... do I dare attempt to drive outside in blizzard-like conditions?!
