Another busy weekend done

You know, there is a part of me that is so ready for Christmas just so I can relax.  The other side of me is screaming "There is still SO MUCH to do!"

So we hosted a bunch of goofy 5th graders for L's party this weekend.  They were definitely a funny group with A LOT of energy! LOL So when I asked them if I could get their picture, this is what I got. (their thinking pose)

They definitely enjoyed the hot cocoa bar.  We went through A LOT of whip cream.  :)

I have another quick and easy gift wrap idea to share with you today.  I don't know about you, but this time year I get so busy that it is hard to find time to get crafty. These cute little boxes took me only minutes to create which is a definite plus.  As a middle schooler K has 8 teachers that she wants to give gifts to and that can add up to lots of money.  So I found these cute little boxes of Stover's chocolates at Target. I then set out to make them a bit more special. I started by wrapping each one in kraft colored paper.  I then wrapped them in either gold or red ribbon and embellished them with goodies from Creative Charms.

 I used one of the gorgeous red velvet poppies for this gift and a few berries I picked up last year at Hobby Lobby for cheap right after Christmas.

 After tying a bow on this one I simply attached a Vintage Metal Frame to it. Easy Peasy (as my girls would say)

More clearance berries and a Christmas Twinkle Sticker on this one.

Hope I was able to give you some gift wrap ideas today.  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I can't tell you how much it means to me!  Have a wonderful week!
