{december} first

{december} daily
December first was all about wrapping presents for me.  First, I woke up early and went over to a friends house for a few hours to help her wrap her presents, and then I came home and wrapped some for my friends : )

Today I was thankful for lunch with Ryan at Philly Franks, and pretty felt packaging I designed for holding my family's gifts (will share a photo of that another day). And here's the only photo I took, of some of the gifts before I wrapped them up with love for my friends.....handmade pouches by Little Octopie, scented pens, and journaling cards for scrapbooking.  <3 Carrie

{favorite} holiday gifts

Since I haven't blogged in a while and it's December 1st, today I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite gifts.....stuff I've been purchasing to give and stuff that I have been just daydreaming about.....
  1. Stuff Kara Made (I can totally imagine snuggeling up in this big sweater and drinking a hot cup of tea by the fire in my Mom's living room : )
  2. Pink Ninja Kits (I have purchased quite a few of these to give as gifts this year.....looking forward to creating pretty paper art with my family in Washington over Christmas)
  3. Doodle Smash Journal (Bought one of these for a friend, and have my eye on this Doodle one for myself ; )
  4. Inspire Lovely (You can never have too much lovely craft goodies.....I bought some of these to go with the Smash Journal gift)
  5. Red Velvet (Daydreaming about all the beautiful bows in their shop right now.....I think one would make Christmas extra special this year!)
And if I had a fortune to spend, I would give online classes to all my friends and family who are receiving Scrapbook kits this year!  The Inspire Lovely Class and Classes by Kara are some of my personal favorties that I own.  Have fun with your Christmas shopping!!!  <3 Carrie
