Okay, I know not everyone gets as excited about wrapping paper as I do. But, it’s the week before Thanksgiving. And that means I have picked this year’s color scheme, made my annual pilgrimage to The Container Store for paper and supplies, and the holidays are fully underway. They don’t become real to me until I’ve picked out my wrapping paper. In 2008 it was red and green, 2009 was silver (with white, red, and green).

This year, it’s sky blue and red. I actually was tempted by this color scheme last year, but I had so much paper left over from 2008 (I went a little nuts that year) that I only bought a few rolls and used what was left over. But this year, it’s on.

Let the holidays begin!
