Christmas Packaging Idea

Loving this gift wrap idea from the kikki.k blog
What a fun way to creatively jazz up recycled paper!

My favourite month, December, is approaching...
Christmas is a' coming...!
And I'm (slightly) giddy with excitement!

Gingko & Butterfly

Giveaways are super fun.
Most of the time I don't win anything, but it's always exciting to discover a new artist and admire their creations through my 13.3" screen. You can imagine my delight when I received a convo from Sally of Gingko & Butterfly saying, "You are the winner of my giveaway!".

Sally has a small home workshop in London, England where she creates beautiful handmade silver jewelry. Her exquisite designs are inspired by nature, and as you will see in her shop, many leaf and floral motifs grace her dainty metal work.

Needless to say, I was thrilled when a package with a Queen Elizabeth stamp arrived a week ago!

Brown boxes are one of the best ways to package things, imho!

A pendant of a gingko leaf - how unique is that? Total love!

Thanks for the gorgeous gingko pendant, Sally!

Hop over to the Gingko & Butterfly shop to view more of Sally's wonderful creations.

Apologies for missing yesterday's *Good Reads* post. My mind hasn't been quite focused these past few days and it's been rather frustrating. Anyhow, I love these illustrations by Rifle Paper Co.- there is always hope for better days ahead. :)
