I dropped my camera. That’s going to be my excuse for all the poor pictures that are about to follow. It’s not an excuse, I guess. I did drop it. It is broken. It took me forever to get these, and they’re still not good.
The shallow, long drawer was just what I needed for my gift wrap, and since I’m always wrapping on the floor anyway, this was a great set up for me.
I bought the *perfect* magazine basket for all my bags that I end up using because I wait until the last minute to wrap gift bags only to get it home and realize it doesn’t fit where I want it to. Bummer. Guess that’ll go somewhere else.
I decided to use this space for all my teacher/dinner party/secretary/whatever gifts that I like to give. It’s what I will now refer to as my “one-stop-shopping” for last minute surprises that come up.
Everything (and I mean everything) was purchased from one of the following places:
- Michael’s dollar section
- Target’s dollar section
- The Dollar Store
Are you finding a theme here? The present should be of importance, but the gift wrapping shouldn’t break the bank, you know?
Oops. I lied. The cream tray (which didn’t look like that when I bought it) was purchased at Salvation Army for .99 cents
I pulled a selection of my favorite gift wrapping ribbons to have handy. I tend to use solid colored paper so I can incorporate decorative ribbons. However, you always need some white ribbon for something!
Didn’t I just say that I prefer solid paper? Well, I do. However, I found these two prints yesterday and just couldn’t resist.
1. I most definitely regret not painting the inside of the hutch now that I’ve shown it off in this post. However, I don’t really plan on showing it off to my company anytime soon.
2. I don’t expect that everyone has an extra space for this stuff, but if you do… It’s a suggestion!
