" . . . ♪♫ this is that time of the year ♫♪ . . . "

" . . . ♪♫ a tinselly, glittery time . . .
. . . {momma} keeps buying presents
and sneaks them into the closet ♫♪ . . . "
truthfully . . . that's a lie!
. . . unfortunately, {momma} isn't very inspired
and {she} hasn't even started buying presents yet . . .
. . . what {she} has started buying
{and sneaking into the closet}
are wrapping paper and ribbon . . .
. . . {momma} can't seem to help herself . . .
. . . these are three of my favorite papers . . .
and if you believe that,
you don't know {momma} very well!um . . . could someone please talk to costco?
you gotta love their
neverending rolls of paper,
but come on!
these have to be the dorkiest prints ever!
. . . why {if your paper is reversible}
don't you show the more attractive part?
. . . the other sides are so much cuter . . . . . . i was thinking i need to make some more tags,
until i got the box of leftovers out . . .
. . . but, i think we're good . . .

. . . here is {momma}'s real addiction . . .
♥thanks costco♥
. . . i do ♥love♥ your ribbon,
and the price is unbeatable . . .
. . . all in all,
you have to admit that
{momma}
has a little problem . . .

LOL! I knew you {and all your friends}were obsessed, but dang girl! You love that red and white!

I do like the colors of the blue/red santa print, but I know! I wish we could choose both sides, and all three that come in the packaged sets! :>

I love all the paper and the ribbon! I think I will be headed to Costco shortly to see if I can find any treasures! Thanks for getting me excited for wrapping!

Mom, you have what the world would consdier an addiction. You have enough ribbon and wrapping paper for the remainder of your life. Yet, around May or June, you rush to Costco to get first dibs on their new ribbon and paper. That is what we would call an addiction! But, that's ok because our Christmas presents are always the cutest in the universe! Thanks perfectionist!

You could just wrap an empty box for me with that cute paper and ribbon and I'd be happy! You are so cute!

How funny that you post this. I was just telling someone how beautiful your tree always looked, because the presents all matched underneath, and were all designed a special way. Way to go Steph!!

you do have an addiction... but i think it's ok... i love the paper & ribbon too!

I wouldn't call it an addiction or "problem"...it's simply a FETISH of yours. It's OK! Everyone has at least one. It's always hard to open your presents. They're too pretty...I don't want to destroy them. I second the motion about Costco's wrapping paper. You should submit some designs and you'd be set for life by Costco. Not joking.

I've just submitted my application to be you in the next life. I hope you are okay with that.

My heart beats a little happier knowing that someone in this world has that much red & white gloriousness adorning their craft room. Simply stunning.

And to imagine your meticulously wrapped perfection o' presents under your beyond-amazing tree! Whoa...you are my hero of cuteness.

No need for REHAB with this addiction.
God thing, cause you, my mom, Fran, and the rest of that gang would be the MAIN patients!

I love when my mom says...
"OHHHH, guess what I got at COSTCO today?"!!!
(sometimes clothes, but mostly awesome ribbon!! I love her for sharing it.

You are hilarious!
