[ happy weekend! ]

SO NOW THAT I have all of my Christmas shopping done, I hope to get all the wrapping done this weekend. I usually choose a theme each year, maybe all white, or kraft/natural or all silver, etc. This year will be a red & white scheme. What about you - do you choose a theme each year?

Happy Wrapping!
I'm done my shopping too and most of my wrapping...yay!!

I usually wrap according to who the present is paper for the kids, more manly for the men and pretty and stylish for my girlfriends.

I'm sure your red and white will look fabulous!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Funny, I also have themes each year and it usually revolves around brown kraft paper but this year I decided to use some fun reindeer paper & white. I'm jealous you're shopping is all done.

That top image is wonderful!
Believe it or not I finished wrapping last night, but you know when you finish too early you end up buying and wrapping more than you intended!!!
Happy wrapping and merry weekend Lisa

I love when all gifts are wrapped in a theme! Usually I choose some variation on burgundy & gold to match our other decorations. Except my hubby who wraps in any old wrapping paper he finds! Oh, and I haven't even started my shopping, so definitely jealous that you're finished :)

I'm almost done with my shopping, but no where near ready to wrap. This year I went with a lot of Snow & Graham paper. I love their things! Thanks for these great ideas. Love the gifts stuffed in the boots! Enjoy your weekend.

I really like the textural, feminine variety of the wrappings in the second phototgraph. Simply lovely ~ xox Alexandra

I can't say that I have a theme, I always use either brown kraft paper, white butcher paper or even newspaper for wrapping paper. I don't do too much fussing over wrapping gifts

I'm going kraft
this year, with
either red and white
string, red rick-rack
or a lovely ribbon
accent. I've been
stringing jingle bells
and homemade tags on
them, as well. We
have a blizzard today,
so will be finishing
off the wrapping on
this end {more to do
at my parents when we
arrive}. Frosty hugs
to you, today, Lisa!

PS: LOVE these images.
So me....and you.

My grandmother used to do beautiful wrapping -- this is so so pretty...
Use any plain wrapping paper (even the brown craft paper) and write the person's name - really big so it covers the whole face of the present - in Elmer's glue. Then sprinkle glitter onto the glue.
The glitter is all you see when the glue dries clear and it looks really pretty.
Happy Wrapping!

I am not done shopping...but I am nearing the finish line. I have three teenage girls though, so I seem to keep adding things for them.
I am using kraft paper and ripped strips of fabric for wrap this year.
I love your blog...I found it after you left a comment on mine. I am your newest follower, and can't wait to look through the whole thing!

Every year, I fight with myself not to choose a white white white christmas theme since that's pretty much my favorite decorating theme too (in my dream world). So, this year, i'm doing white and silver. Mixin it up huh?--kinda. :)

I love the wellies with the presents in them! I really want to do that but I don't think my family would like the idea as much as I do.

I like to wrap with theme colors too. I found my paper last year and it is whites, coral, and bright green. Also, Santa wraps his gift with paper that he is printed on. Luckily I found some to match my other paper!
