Homemade Wrapping for Gifts

I realized last minute that the only gift wrap I had left was Christmas ones from last year. So to make do, I used plain paper from bath and body works (used to wrap my candles). I used a glue stick to hold the wrap instead of tape. Ran out of scotch tape, go figure. Then decorated with sharpies. My friend absolutely loved it and preferred it over store bought wrapping paper. Something to try!

Chopsticks Have a New Use

I bought a basil plant at my local farmers market a few weeks ago and its been growing! Unfortunately one of the stems started dropping quite low.

I used a chopstick and some thread to wrap and hold my plant upright. Works like a charm and looks quite cute. 🙂
