4: Advent


One of the easiest ways I cut through the holiday hype is by using what I have to celebrate. I love Target. In almost every way possible, I adore that store. And while I’ve wandered the aisles of glitter bird ornaments, the trimmed trees, the polar bears on ice skates decals, I don’t want any part of it. It’s my inner prairie woman — my Laura Ingalls Wilder — that instead screams, “NOT THE POINT. KEEP IT SIMPLE!”

So, today’s Advent celebration is one cheering simplicity, frugality and environmental consciousness. Gifts wrapped in paper bags with a big of ribbon is one of the ways I’m keeping things minimal this year. I’ve got a few other wrapping ideas using left-over string and fabric that will posted later too.

What are your creative, low-key wrapping ideas?
