This morning I went into Camberwell to run some errands. In every country we've lived I always have a favourite store that you need to go into just to have a look. My favourite store in the US is Potterybarn (followed closely by Crate a & Barrel and Gap), my favourite store in the UK is Monsoon and my favourite store here in Australia is MiniMax. They've got gorgeous things. Today I found this very inspirational Christmas wrapping by Caroline Gardner:
In one of my next LOs I'm going to use the colour combination of this paper. I don't know if you can tell, but the paper has glitter on it too. I might even use the paper after I've decided what I'm going to wrap in it. I kindly asked some ribbon to go with it, that they use to wrap their presents in the store. They also had the most adorable decorations, glass baubles with felt dots and swirls in red and white and wooden reindeer ornaments. My favourite Christmas colours are red and white, but as we won't be home for Christmas, there's no need to buy and decorations this year.
This afternoon I created a card for Nancy's new challenge. I'm not thrilled with the result, but it's okay.
