So, amidst thinking about and staying present in Fall, I'm also trying to do just a bit of Christmas "work" so I won't have to in December. I'm planning a very relaxed, joyful, fun, family oriented Solstice and Christmas this year, which, for me at least, does not include rushing around at the last minute getting packages ready. It is so much more joyful for me to do it now, at a relaxed pace, then to rush when time is very limited. So to that end, I've been tying up jam jars and wrapping up the first few presents.
I covered the first few jars (one with fabric, one with paper) but found I like the presentation of the sticker with just some twine around the lid, secured with a button. I like the cleaner look of it.
Now if only I can keep this up!
