If you're thinking that Buddy is quite the little rascal with all his antics, please stop reading now.
Truth be told, he has a bit of help with his nightly activities.
Hard to believe that any sane adult would have the sort of time during the holidays to be creating fake elf mischief scenarios in the middle of the night.
Last night however, he had help from Sofi.
Here he is, stuck up in an oven mitt.
He also managed to make a mess with his marshmallows.
Yesterday Cate asked me if Buddy cleans up his stuff every day or if I do.
I'm happy to report that today it's gonna be on Sofi.

Do you like to wrap?
Me, not so much.
I mean if it were one or two items it'd be kinda fun, but at
Christmas when there's a big pile, it's really not my thing.
So I try to keep it simple.
Here's my wrapping advice:
I love short rolls of wrap...so much easier to manoeuvre and cut.
String is less work than ribbon.
Ikea tags are adorable!
Always use transparent wrapping tape!!!
Use a box for items that are a tricky shape.
If you can't find a box, wrap the item in tissue first to give it softer sides.
ALWAYS remove price tags including the sticky residue they often leave behind!!
Including a gift receipt is kind if it is an item that might not fit.
Don't go overboard.
Remember all this is gonna end up in the garbage so aim for pretty but not over the top.

Besides the marshmallows strung about my house, Anthropologie also inspired a little DIY.
I saw this scarf there.
It was $68.
But I love it!
Mixing fabric seems to be the newest thing in infinity scarves.
However, not having $68 handy, I thought I'd try to make one.
A friend and I shared the cost of a plaid scarf at Target and split it in half. Then I got some half price wool from Michael's and knitted up a section, sewed both pieces together, and ta da.
