It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

…a card mess!
Woo, holiday cards are mailed! Two languages and two continents makes things, shall we say, interesting. It sounds better than hopelessly messy! 🙂 Apart from the envelopes, two kinds of stamps, address labels, envelope seals, scissors, pens, address books and whatnot, my paper cutter is out to add to the clutter, because I recycle old Christmas cards as gift tags:
To counteract the card mess, which for some reason defeats me every year, I made this wrapping cart:
All the gift wrapping supplies (save for larger boxes) are in one place that’s easy to wheel around wherever you need it. There’s dedicated scissors and tape, ribbon, small gift boxes, cards, gift tags, bubble wrap, wrapping paper and tissue paper. Gift bags hang off on one side. We’ve used it for a few years now and I love it. When not in use, it lives in a walk-in closet.
This year, we decided to cut a tree from our lot and chose a small pine. Mr. E, as the resident tall person in the house, got the honor of hanging the lights, as usual:
The tree is a little crooked, thin and lopsided, but that’s ok. I like my trees natural-looking, not chainsawed into a perfect cone. (Brr.)
Now, off to sew more presents!
