I was always the student who would go all out for creative school projects, I went through an artsy scrapbooking obsession, I made my Christmas lists when I was younger into literal works of art, and I had a multiple drawer storage unit for all my DIY crafting supplies. Even now, I love any excuse to bring out sparkly ribbons, glitter, cute boxes, and fancy tissue paper and make something beautiful. So, while some people find gift wrapping to be a chore, I enjoy taking the time to make a present’s wrappings as special as what lies within. Needless to say, the other afternoon, I felt a little bit like a Christmas elf, though in distressed jeans and a comfy seater I wasn’t dressed like one. And I was in my element.
