Paper or Plastic? How about Fabric. Wrap your holiday gifts in Reusable Fabric Gift Bags from VZ Wraps and let the trees have a rest.

The count down is on until trick or treat night, the treat bags are made, and Santa is checking the Christmas list. Wait, what, Santa? There are two big holidays until Christmas, but that doesn't stop stores from being ready now. I have to turn my head and not look at all the decorated trees, lights, and rolls of wrapping paper neatly stacked in boxes.

I have a weakness for wrapping paper, gift bags, and ribbon. I even have a wrapping counter in my basement. It is so nice at Christmas time to be able to have all the ribbon, paper, and gift tags at the ready. I've been de-wrapping the area the past few years and going for reusable gift bags and containers. I like the idea of giving a reusable bag with the gift inside, plus it just gives it a personal touch.

My favorite gift bags come from VZ Wraps. They are made in Pennsylvania, USA. The owner, Isabelle Vesey makes these reusable fabric gift bags in a variety of sizes, shapes, and the cutest patterns I've seen. I met her last year at an event and love her gift bags.  Take a look at her web site and you'll know what I am talking about.

The Christmas line is my favorite. The bag, Christmas Critters has that vintage look I like. From cute to fancy, from Christmas bags, to bridal shower bags VZ Wraps offers reusable fabric gift bags in styles to fit any occasion.  VZ Wraps also does custom orders.

The bags come with a ribbon attached. The material is 100% cotton or organic cotton, and the ribbon is Eco-grosgrain or Eco-satin made of 100% recycled material in most bags.

Choose from sizes such as:
  • Mini/Gift Card Holder
  • Wine Bottle Bag, shown below in Snowflakes. Open the bag, drop in the bottle, tie the bag shut and off you go!

  • Standard: (10"x15") Shown below in Christmas Cookies. Drop in your gift, tie the bag shut and your are finished wrapping in no time flat!

  • Medium: (17"x19")Shown below in Candy Canes: this bag is big enough to hold a big pile of books or board game or even a laptop.

  • Large size (21'x27") see what fits inside here. It's roomy enough  for a shoe box, a small appliance and more.
  • This holiday season go reusable with VZ Wraps for your gift wrapping needs. The bag can be used over and over again and the ribbon is sewed onto the bag so you won't have to buy or hunt for your spool of ribbon.
Make your list and order your gift bags now. Your gift wrapping will be so easy you can go out and play in the snow with the kids.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.
