One of my favourite parts of going to a wedding is the gift and how I wrap it. I have done gift baskets to using a boa as stuffing around the gift. I know that typically the presentation gets destroyed within minutes but I still love doing it. Plus I like having the pretty present in the pile.

Lately I have been really into Pinterest. The only problem is I actually don’t end up doing anything I pin. So I decided to put my mind to it and finally do a project! Project: Make your own cleaner!
