{oh, and bring your hot glue gun}

the holidays for me are all about the gift wrap. i love wrapping gifts in general i am a sucker for packaging. i guess it's part of my job to be visually motivated, so the package is key & in my home, yes, i have a gift wrap station, it's the part of my home most commented about. mind you it's tiny but it speaks to people. last year i had the ultimate challenge of "hard to wrap" gifts on the today show. it was a daunting task, and really did in fact challenge me... {i loved every minute of it, propping and shopping in NYC last year in the bone chilling wind and a snow storm was memorable and very funny indeed, just another day in my styling adventures} i am hoping for better weather, and less crazy...but i am sure there will be stories to tell, there always are, zany stuff seems to follow me around.
