a jump start on next year

Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful day of festivities, family and food!
We did!
I headed out early today to beat the crowd and snag a few sale items.

After Christmas sales are the perfect time to get a plan for...
Christmas 2012 and stock up on signature style wrap for anytime of year!
I scored!

I found this wrap, ribbon, containers and pom-poms on sale at Michaels,
(all 70% off)
 it will be the inspiration for my out-of-town kiddo packages.
Go here to see this year's packages

You guessed it, a red and white peppermint candy theme.
The paint-can style containers with metal handle and lid are a fun way to package small gifts.
I'm still looking for some cute ornaments to tie onto the packages.

My signature style wrap is usually black and white
paired with a collection of brightly colored coordinating ribbons.
I scored!
The two papers on the left I already had.
Hobby Lobby had a ton of the polka dot and diamond patterned wrap in assorted colors.
 $2.50/roll of 100 ft.
The ribbon was all from Michaels, .60 each for the smaller spools,
the larger ones I had and were from Costco.

Black & White with Pink


Black & White with Red


Black & White with Yellow


You get the idea, it goes with anything!

Take advantage of the sales and
come next December you'll be glad to have this simple plan in place!

You're good Pam! I picked up a few rolls of paper yesterday and may go out today for a little while. Might even hit up Anthropologie to see if they have any good sales. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

You DID score! Pretty sure I'd like to come raid your ribbon stash. So glad you had a Merry Christmas!

What great combos! Love the idea of having a "signature" wrapping style!

Clearly I had the same idea last year, although had somehow managed to forget about it until I opened a cupboard some time in November and discovered my wrapping needs were all catered for! Nice surprise though!

Such pretty combinations, so versatile for many occasions. Love the cute chicks too. Thanks for sharing!

I love the color combinations. I haven't had a chance to run to the store because the kids are keeping me busy this week. Hopefully, there will be something left for me to buy next week!
