Christmas Gift Wrap, the Old-Fashioned Way

I've been that person, speeding into Fred Meyer close to closing on Christmas Eve, all because I forgot wrapping paper! We've all been there, right?

The thing is, wrapping gifts beautifully and simply is half the fun! So now a days I don't really buy wrapping paper. You can use anything you have at home or just buy a roll of brown paper. I love using part of the gift to wrap with. Whether that's a vintage linen cloth, a ticking pillow case or just topping the gifts with something special like a pair of tapers, honey sticks, a candle snuffer or lip balm.

I love that the Old Fashioned Christmas is trending right now! While I've been using these old fashioned details for years now in both my home life and business, I love that there's a push for a simple handmade Christmas!

I really do believe that everyone should give something handmade. While making gifts from scratch isn't for everyone, you can add that handmade, thoughtful touch to your wrapping. For my gifts this year, I've put a spin on the Old Fashioned Christmas wrapping of brown paper packages tied up with string. I've added a few elements from nature to give it that special touch. I've used bakers twine and made my own ribbon from ripping unwanted fabric into strips. So go on a walk, grab some rose-hips, pine cones, moss, a few cedar sprigs or maybe you'll be lucky and find a birds nest. I've also in years past dried orange slices, used cinnamon sticks and other simple and inexpensive methods for adding those old fashioned details.

"Waste not, want not." , "Use it Up, Wear it Out, Make it Do, or Do Without." These are the phrases that were used long ago when people wrapped gifts with old paper and bits of fabric. While we look back at the nostalgic beauty of these gifts, what we can take away are the simple, inexpensive things that were used with thoughtfulness to make our loved ones Christmases more memorable.

I remember as a girl helping my grandmother decorate her tree and making a popcorn garland. That simple activity as a child has stuck with me all these years later. So go wrap your gifts in this old fashioned tradition, perhaps with your children or grandchildren and let those memories be made.

NEW to our shop... BEESWAX WRAPS!!!

Well we've finally taken the plunge! For a very long time you have been asking for Beeswax Wraps. For those of you who are new to these, they are reusable and Eco-friendly food wraps. They are made of organic cotton, beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin. These are the perfect addition to any kitchen and can easily replace plastic wrap, which is not only good for the environment but also your pocket book!

We are so excited to be offering this eco-friendly bee product! We worked hard to find a maker that is right here in the USA. Which brings me to what I'm sure is your next question. What... you don't make these? So here's the brief answer. No, we did do trials making these and thought long and hard but when it comes down to it, we really want to focus on what we do and do it good. We've recently just moved into a large studio space where we have been able to expand our business including adding new retail partners. While we now have more room in our studio space, we just decided that we don't want to dedicate a large area of it to making a new product like beeswax wraps plus the added expense of investing in the proper equipment and materials. In reality we don't' want to spread ourselves too thin. We're trying hard to work on speeding up our processing time and get our product in your hands a lot quicker as well as have our product in more stores across the U.S. So in a nutshell that's the why.

Beeswax Wraps are great! They're a zero waste item, help food breathe when stored, therefore last longer and are 100% Natural. We offer a few great choices under our pantry section, so make sure to give them a try. As always thanks for your support!
