Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love that it seems to be a celebration of every single day in December. I am never finished baking, wrapping presents or decorating the house... and I like it like that!
I love a cheerful holiday mess.
My husband? Not so much.
So I have learned to sort of compromise and to make my mess a part of the Christmas decor.
Since I'm never done wrapping presents, I keep the things I need out all the time. Since they're out all the time, they might as well be festive.
Any mess looks better if you keep it corralled in a cute tray. So I made a Christmas Caddy for some of my wrapping supplies.
I took an old tray and some bottles that I got at a yard sale and painted the tray in gold and the caps of the bottles in red and green. (We're going with traditional colors this year for Hubby's sake. I still owe him for the year I did a Black & Gold Christmas...)
