Weekend Reading + Gift Wrap Giveaway

December 6, 2013

We’re in full holiday mode here at the casa and so we’re off to get our tree today and decorate it this weekend. I’ve picked a white flocked tree three years in a row so we’ll be taking a break and going with a fresh green one this time, plus the scent of a fresh tree is the best! I loved designing the collection of gift wraps this year and I’m giving a few rolls away to some of you, see details below.
