Well hello there busy Christmas elves of the world wide webernet! I’m feeling quite happy with myself on this fourth day of December as we count down to the big day. I’m one happy chappy and I hope to spread this good cheer your way. I’m trying to stay organized and keep things simple this year, I tend to get way too carried away. Last year this time we were just starting up a full fledged bathroom remodel—it was crazy. That combined with my never ending Christmas decorating left me feeling stressed out and I ended up getting sick. This year I’m trying to behave!I made myself this nifty cottage style wrapping station. Although calling it a station may be more than it deserves, it’s more like a wrapping corner. As soon as I put it all together, it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. There will be no clamoring around the cottage for wrapping supplies this year! They’re all right here, ready and waiting. It’s a cottage elf corner!I used my blue enamel bucket to hold cottage style red wrapping paper and tissue. And a picnic basket to keep tape, pens, scissors, and cards. Oh, and I also added the floor pillows—because sitting on the floor is the only way I’m able to wrap. Now all I need is a tall glass of cheer and I’ll be ready to go. Wink.I’m heading out with a dear friend for an afternoon of Christmas tree shopping, I’m so excited I can’t stand it!
