Christmas Wrapping Ideas for Brown Paper

I want to share our Christmas Wrapping ideas for this year. I love wrapping Christmas presents with brown paper. Brown kraft paper is always something that I have a roll off so is perfect for emergency gift wrapping.  I have to say that this was inspired by Heather from Growing Spaces Fun Christmas Gift Wrap Ideas.  More specifically the Beard one.

Wonderful Ways to Celebrate Advent 6

I love Christmas and the Advent.  I really want to celebrate advent and use the time to focus on the true meaning of Christmas and make it about giving and have a joy filled time with my family.

Our Traditional Christmas Pudding Recipe with a Twist 16

This Traditional Christmas Pudding Recipe with a Twist with a twist is brought to you in conjunction with The Royal Mint and their special silver six pence who commissioned us to share our Stir Up Sunday traditions. Growing up in my house Christmas dinner was a family event which always culminated with a fantastic flaming Christmas pudding and the hunt for the sixpence.  I love that we have carried that tradition on.
