Hi guys! Can you believe we are a week into December already! Seriously time flies when you’re having fun! If you tuned into our Instagram stories last week, you will have seen sneak peeks of a top secret project we have been working on with Christmas wrapping paper. We can’t divulge too much right now but we will be sharing more on our Instagram next week.

Since then we have been thinking about how much we love to get creative with wrapping paper, so we thought we would share our favourite ideas from our favourite bloggers – including one or two from ourselves of course and starting with this Pool Float Gift Wrap. You guys loved this when you spotted it on our Instagram last month and it has been one of our most popular DIY’s yet! (Photo via Bespoke Bride)

We love this Leather Wrap and it takes under 5 minutes to make. Bonus!( Photo by Brittni Mehlhoff via Paper & Stitch)

Woah! Wait! What? Did someone say, I’m going to be 30!

Not many people know this about me but I have a real fear of growing old. So much so, I sometimes lay awake at night worrying about it. I know it’s crazy, it happens to all of us and it’s the natural way of the world but I hate it. I don’t think I fear dying but I do fear being alone.

As many of you will know, this year has been pretty tough. After two failed rounds of IVF, we were eventually told that our chances of ever having children were very slim and so we decided to call it quits. I found the treatment really difficult and with the negative outcome each time, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it again.
