I am so excited that the next holiday is Valentine's Day!  It is one of my absolute favorite holidays!  Lots of red and pink, lots of hearts, all the fun gifts and treats, and about 1/100th of the stress of Christmas or Thanksgiving.  What isn't to love?

Here are some links to posts in my archives from Valentine's past that might come in handy!

Happy planning!!

Christmas Gift Wrapping

The bulk of my Christmas gifts are wrapped late in the night on Christmas Eve, right before Santa arrives.  Lots of wrapping paper, tape, and store bought labels and bows.  But there are the special few that are wrapped ahead of time. Gifts for teachers and neighbors that get a little more attention and are fun to dress up with ribbons and tulle.   I am not really great at making bows with fancy ribbon, so tulle has become my go to ribbon tying material of choice!  This year, Oriental Trading sent me some fun Christmas wrapping goodies to try out.
