a different twist on a paper christmas wreath



Hello December! I can't believe it. Every year I say the same thing but—wow. This is just weird to be only a few weeks away from Christmas. It always seems to sneak up on me.

Our Thanksgiving break was pretty quiet considering we were trading fevers and coughs. Round and round we went. Not too bad. But, yes, annoying. 

I literally had not touched a piece of paper, just for fun, in weeks. A couple of nights ago I couldn't take it any longer and I stayed up way longer than I really should have. The thing is that when I'm in the mood, it doesn't matter when it strikes I just go for it. This wreath (which has been floating around in my head for literally months) and some simple patterns to go along with it are the results. Incidentally the frame is also made of paper (found in my shop here).

I need to stay healthy because I'm in countdown mode this week. I'll be heading to NYC on Thursday to participate in the Most Gifted Wrapper contest! I entered on a whim and now I'm one of 8 finalists that will be competing. I can't wait to see how it goes. Bryant Park here I come! 

Hope you're all doing well!
