What I Have Done This Week for Christmas - Wrapping Paper

I know this is a silly thing to add here - but I think because we all deal with it, I am going to make a post about it.

I have wanted a Wrapping Paper Center for a while now..  I found an old 5 drawer dresser and turned it into my storage area for wrapping paper. It is so perfct!  This is what the drawers hold.
  1. Drawer 1 - This drawer has all the tissue paper in a plastic bedspread cover.  It is zipped shut so it doesn't get smashed or wrinkled.  The other side has all the cellophane wrap and bags.
  2. Drawer 2 - This drawer is 2/3 filler, shred, paper shred etc. Each kind is in a zip loc bag.  The other side has a small shoe box that has the tape, scissorsm stickers, etc/
  3. Drawer 3 - This drawer is filled with flat wrapping paper and rolls of wrapping paper - they fit int he drawers perfectly!  WOO HOO
  4. Drawer 4 - Ths drawer is filled with bags.  There is a small shoe box on one side that has all the small bags, the other side holds all the big bags.
  5. Drawer 5 - This drawer  holds all the ribbon. A shoe box holds all the loose bows. Another shoe box holds all the loose ribbon.  In the middle are all the big spools of ribbon.
I tried to take a picture - but they aren't too exciting - I think you can really imagine it in your head just as well.  Now when I get more paper, bags and bows I have a place to put it and I can even wrap on top of the dresser!

I love all your Christmas decorations! My dad was the one who always put up the lights and then took us all around different neighborhoods to see the lights and decorations! Now we do that with our grandchildren. And I love that little joke too! I'm now following you on GFC. Please come on over to the farm and follow when you get a chance. I will grab your button too. Would be honored if you grabbed mine.
God bless.

Hi Paula!

I'm so glad that I found your blog! I LOVE Christmas. Unfortunately it's taking forever to get your pages to load (I assume it has something to do with all of the photos), so I can't do much looking around tonight (I'm supposed to be writing a movie review right now, but I'm here instead!). I would like to subscribe to your blog via email...but I couldn't find that option anywhere on your blog :( I also was unable to subscribe in my feedreader...not sure why. Do you have Twitter or Facebook related to your blog?

Feel free to email me and let me know if you offer email subscription that I just didn't happen to see. I'm going to add your button to my blog within the next few days (all booked up right now). Looks like you have a great site here, can't wait to take a better look around!
