A Few of My Favorite Things

I want to start by wishing everyone a Happy and Joyous Christmas Eve!  This time of year always makes me feel so happy and thankful for all my loved ones.  I hope everyone is able to spend the holidays with the people they love.

This year I created a Crafty Christmas for our home.  Brown paper packages tied up with string... Gifts were wrapped in craft paper with festive bows and string.  I love wrapping presents.  I'm all over it this season.  I think I bought around 8 new rolls of ribbon to a already large collection.  Would you call that an addiction? 

I love the look of craft paper.  It is versatile and classic.  A pretty ribbon will make the craft paper stand out, or instead of a ribbon you can use string or, my favorite, baker's twine.  Use craft paper as a belly wrap for colorful and patterned gift wrap.  Out of handle bags? Put your gifts in a brown lunch bag with some festive stamps on the front.  Complete your look by using washi tape.  Come in as I take you into our home for the holidays.  
I wanted the tree to have a similar look so I decorated it with burlap, raffia ornaments, and glittery ornaments.  Find more pictures of our tree on Instagram! #RaittTree
