So here’s a dilemma for you. What happens when you’re nearing the finish line of a room makeover and decide hmmm, I think I like something completely and totally opposite? Shhhhh! Don’t tell The Boy!

DIY Holiday Gift Tag Printable

When Grace from The Big Reveal ask me to design holiday gift tags for her “Creative Ways to Package Holiday Cookies” post, I kinda jumped for joy (and declared myself insane). That’s totally normal, right? I know, I know, it sounds weird especially since we spent the entire week cranking out the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party last week. Grace had leverage though.

(I might be a bit of a procrastinator.)
