Yeah…I know…this is the month that everyone runs around like chickens with their heads cut off all the while muttering and trying to remember to breathe. So, what better time to tell you about cool DIY gift wrap ideas, because I know you all have endless minutes to create your own gift wrap. I was just telling a pal today about how geeked out I used to get over gift wrap (pre-kids). Nowadays I’m lucky to not run out of tape! But, as always…the gift you give represents you, and do you really want some lame wrapping paper to represent you? Why not buy some craft paper (available at art stores) and just add a wee bit of embellishment….and remember to have fun and…BREATHE!
