Today is the first evening of Hanukkah! Being that S is Jewish, we are lucky enough to celebrate both holidays in winter! This typically has me on top of holiday decor, gift buying, and gift wrapping earlier than most of my friends + family. So, I had to get a start on making gift tags in time for this weekend!
On this post here I wrote about my new typewriter, given to us by S's grandmother. I decided it needed to be put to work, so I made gift tags with it!
- cute printed paper or journal paper
- hole punch
- + ribbon to tie
This journal was a gift from a friend a little while ago. It's one of those journals too cute to use! I mostly use it for sweet notes because it's paper is so charming! It's from the brand Boy Girl Party and has so many different prints inside of it, perfect for making small crafts with.
These gift tags are super colorful and bold and with the ribbon, could even be hung on the Christmas tree that year! Last year for gift tags I still used a typewriter, but instead of this cutesy print I used stoic index cards with photo corners. They looked great on my newspaper wrapping paper that year!
Now that we are full force into December, all of our weekends will be dedicated to family time. We already have a list for every day off of who we are going to see. Many festivities like a celebratory dinner, Hanukkah dinner, as well as an early Christmas dinner planned. We have a bit of a great holiday planned, and I will definitely update everyone on that as it gets closer!
This semester is also coming to a close which is such a lovely relief. I am so looking forward to my last semester next year! Next spring 2013 I will be taking the most revered classes like history + culture of wine, international events, and fairs + festivals. No more accounting classes or communications, all electives here on out! And then come May, I will be receiving my Bachelor's degree in Event Management, as well as getting married! With so much to look forward to this upcoming year, I am so happy that I have a wonderful new camera + this supportive blog to document it all!
Also, I feel like I have had a lucky charm on me lately. I've been winning so many giveaways since I started blogging, and this past weekend, I won the drawing for a gift card to my favorite antique market! I can't wait to use the gift card, and when I do, I promise to share photos of that lovely shop with you. This time of the year it is decorated so beautifully and there are so many gems + treasures to be had.
Tonight, my dad is visiting so I am planning to take him to our favorite restaurant in town with the fire oven pizza + bone marrow crostini that I posted about here. I hope everyone's evening is as delicious as mine is about to be!Salut, Yelle
