Your new Christmas digs are so cheery! I actually already got to do a little wrapping for some Thanksgiving treats, and I was reminded that I think wrapping is a 10. :-)

Elise said...

Ooh! I would love some tags, these are beautiful!
I also like to have a Christmas movie playing, have everything strewn on the floor and maybe a cup of cocoa or tea nearby! We have already started wrapping gifts and are almost done shopping!

Judy said...

Summer, I tried to order the set of tags and because my address is different now from my debit card it would not accept it, so can I get them from you instead? They are very merry! Cute idea!

I'm a wrapping junkie. I love gifting thoughtful items to family and friends during the holidays, and the wrapping brings that time closer!

Kaitlin Graff said...

Well--I love the idea of wrapping gifts, but I am NOT very good at such things... so I'd give it a 6 due to my lack of skills! These beautiful tags however, may just inspire me to work harder at such things! Or they'll look lovely on my gift bags : ) I'm excited to give it a try while watching a Christmas movie as well! Thanks for the inspiration friend!

Kaitlin Graff said...

Facebooked it as well!

I'm about an eight when it comes to wrapping gifts. I love to think about people open gifts when I am doing them all up, but my lack of wrapping abilities sort of makes the event a bit less fun.

Maybe this year I will look into working on them a bit more :) These gift tags would sure help.

Tesa said...

What a cute little shop!
Gift wrapping is a 10 for me~ LOVE it!
Thanks for a chance to win!

Rachel Lundy said...

What fun gift tags! I like it!

I love wrapping Christmas gifts. On a scale of one to ten, it's a ten. I spread out on the floor, make a huge mess, and have fun with it. I like making gifts look pretty.

Mariel said...

So cute!
I love to gift wrap and learned all the tricks from my grandma when I was a little girl :) It's definitely a 10 for me, but I have to have all my supplies stocked up or it can quickly go downhill. Nothing like running out of tape or ribbon or being just 2inches short of wrapping paper to spoil the gift-wrapping mood!
Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I shared your Show and Tell link via twitter.

I love coming up with a different theme each year... I also spread everything out in the living room in front of a Christmas movie! The tags & print are super cute :]

TheWifeLife said...

These are so adorable! What a fantastic venture.

I would have to say I like wrapping at about an 8. My husband and I try to be very eco-conscious, so we use newspaper or other leftover scraps of a wrap-able substance.

Josie said...

tags are so pretty!
..wrapping presents..definately a late night venture..i like to be spread out in front of the tree...christmas movies on with a cup of hot chocolate by my side

inspireddesire said...

summer, you need a shop all year round. your stuff is all so cute!

wrapping is off the charts for me, but i'll stay in the "bounds" of 1-10 & give it an emphatic 10 :o) at the kitchen table, with christmas music playing or a christmas movie.

congrats on your sweet little shop!

Krista said...

Summer, I just love your style!

Growing up, I would help my mom wrap the whole lot at one time. We would spread out on her bedroom floor and play the movie White Christmas in the background. Such a fun time of year!

shawn said...

LOVE these! (i would love to see the holiday shop expand into an all year around thing!) and i love the new banner! so cheery!

i am a 10! love to wrap gifts. i'm especially spoiled if i have 2 rolls of tape--somehow one always gets lost!

i hope "shawn" shares with me when he wins ;)

Katie said...

summer! i am so excited for this new adventure! i love love love it all! let me just say that i love the thought of wrapping gifts so perfectly with cute kraft paper and pretty ribbons & then just end up scrambling the night before wrapping with anything i can find.

Carissa Knight said...

I love to wrap presents! I always wrap on the floor, surrounded by a mess of paper, tape, scissors & ribbon.

Amanda said...

Wrapping gifts -- such a love hate relationship with that task. While I love the whole hunkering down process of gathering everything in my living room, I hate when I under estimate wrapping paper and cut too little. :)

Excited about your shop, Summer!

I do not even think I can describe how much I like wrapping Christmas presents. I start buying gifts around October and November because I can't wait for Christmas and because gift giving is my favorite! I do wait to wrap them until two or three weeks before Christmas, however. I like to wrap them all at once and I'll do it for a couple of hours. I do it in my bedroom on the floor with my supplies spread everywhere!

marta said...

Audra said...

So cute Summer! Hope I win :)

brittney said...

This is really cute. I think i might like wrapping gifts as much as i like shopping for them! (if not a little more)... It takes me forever so i just make a night out of it... & occasionally i sign my gift tags, "gift-wrap master" :P

Abby said...

I just placed an order for two sets of tags! These are the absolute cutest, Summer!

Elaine said...

I am probably a 9 on the wrapping-enjoyment scale. I think PJ pants, hot cocoa, and Christmas jazz are key!

Kelly Rust said...

So cute!!! Unfortunately, I do Christmas wrapping whenever I find a couple minutes free without the girls around! Usually on the basement floor and as fast as I can do it so no one sees them! I do really like wrapping though, so I'd give it a 9. :)

Christina said...

Definitely a 10 here. :) I love wrapping gifts in front of the tree with very little light besides the Christmas lights--preferably with a cup on mulled cider within arm's reach.

Nessa Bixler said...

It is a 10! I use regular shipping paper - white and brown, so the tags are the icing. Oh and the bows. I love some ribbon, string and bows!

Congrats!!!!!!!

Sarah said...

I love wrapping presents! It is so much fun for me. My sister and I wrap all the presents.

Amy said...

Adorable! You always find the best quotes, so I can't wait to see what other goodies you dream up for your sweet shop. Wrapping gifts is one of my favorite parts of the season, and pjs, hot chocolate, and holiday music are absolute essentials!

John and Teresa said...

wrapping gifts is a 10! and no better place than in front of our crackling fireplace, near the tree of course.

Skyler and Jared said...

10!! With my Christmas music on, everything laid out in front of me, and in my comfies too. :) although its kind of hard to admit that my hubby's a better wrapper than me!! :S

Jes said...

Yay, Christmas!! This year we're doing more of a homemade holiday (who doesn't like homemade gifts?). My fave time/spot for wrapping gifts is when my husband is out (he's such a kid and totally peeks at his gifts) and spread out in front of the Christmas tree and the fire place in our living room. Christmas music is also a must!

A Wife and her Carpenter said...

I just shared the link on my facebook :)

tuttut said...

It's a 10 as long as I haven't waited til the last minute...then it's more like a 2! I love pretty packages crowded around a beautiful tree.

sarah {on the brightside...} said...

Oh, your gift tags are so pretty! I love wrapping presents, while listening to Christmas music! Usually my mom, sister & I wrap gifts together! So fun! :)

ellen said...

I'm a wrapper. :)

theartfulgardener said...

I like to wrap my gifts right at the store where I bought them. Almost every store around here, I'm living just outside of Cologne, Germany right now, has a wrapping station on the way out with free paper, scissors, tape and ribbons. But no gift tags!

theartfulgardener said...

I've shared your site on Facebook as well :)

Vintage Novella said...

I love wrapping and using pretty paper and tags. Scale of 1-10? 10 for sure!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
