When I look at magazines or blogs that feature really beautiful things, I often think "who lives like that??" and "who has the time???" or "geez, I wish that was my glamourous life". Still I think it's VERY important to be inspired and take the time to apply it to one's own life. At Christmas time I make time to get crafty and creative with my wrapping. Shown above are some things I've done over the years. Although I might not work in my dream job as artistic director of J. Crew, or have the most awesome clothing or furniture, I can still create. See, design is still a democratic venture.
