Wrapping It Up

Chalkboard presents by Going Home to Roost

Polka Dots by Squirrelly Minds

Colorful presents by Minimega

White black and neon pink presents by kronprinsessene

A few last minute gift wrapping ideas that work for Christmas and just about any other occasion from (in order): Going Home to Roost, Squirrelly Minds, Minimega, and Kronprincessene. And for more great DIY Christmas ideas, see Tiger Wallman Hellström’s DIY Christmas Pinterest board, which is loaded with inspiration.

I’ve been writing Charlotte’s Fancy since August of 2008. When I started it, I didn’t know how rewarding it would be. Above all else, I’ve enjoyed the community it has given me – the feedback and friendship from you kind readers here as well as on Twitter. It’s been a wonderful creative outlet too, as well as an opportunity to support independent artists/shops in any way I can (which makes me feel like I’m doing something useful).

I’ve been struggling lately with whether or not it’s time to say goodbye to Charlotte’s Fancy for a variety of reasons, but I’ve decided that I would miss it, and don’t really want to give it up. If I post less frequently (not every day), I could offer better ideas, more comprehensive information, and more original content (there was a time, believe it or not, when I published my own craft ideas every week).

So in 2013, I’ll be experimenting a little with what feels right – perhaps it’s just one post a week, perhaps I only post when I have inspiration. In any case, I hope you’ll stick with me.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your comments and your “likes” which encourage me to keep going. I appreciate you all so much.

Sending you warm holiday wishes and wishing you a bright 2013.

    Molly, I really do enjoy getting your charlottes fancy blog in my inbox. It would not bother me at all if it came a little less frequently, but I would sure miss it if it was gone. I enjoy the brevity and the editorial effort, as I personally just don’t have time to dig through all the wonderful crafting, DIY, Pinterest, etc. blogs to find a little dose of inspiration. I want to encourage you to continue, in whatever capacity is best for you! Have a lovely holiday season!

    There have been lots of bloggers having a ‘mid-blog crisis’ and whether they keep going. I know your readers, like myself, will take anything you give us, even if it’s just once a week. Trust me, I know that blogging is a full-time job and becomes it’s own entity. But don’t leave us! 🙂 I love reading your posts because I know it won’t be a rehash of info I see everywhere else…it’s how I try to keep my own blog content original and you’ve always been a great inspiration in that regards. Whew…jumping off my soapbox now…

    So beautiful! I am completely horrible at wrapping gifts and youtube videos just make me feel worse! But after watching your lovely wrapping, it makes me want to do it too! 🙂
