Papertrey Ink December 2013 Blog Hop - Tied Up With String

Merry Christmas, Happy Boxing Day and Happy New Year...wishing everyone a blessed holiday season. My family had a very nice and quiet holiday and very low key, just way we like it. I have not been doing much crafting because of being sick so not much mojo right now. My daughter gave me Led Zeppelin's "The Song Remains the Same" DVD so I should be plenty inspired from hearing their amazing music! My post today will be very quick and it is getting in just under the wire today for Papertrey Ink's December Blog Hop.  I picked up some fun metal tins from The Container Store and filled them with Christmas candy and a bakers twine bow and fun tag, complete with jingle bells.  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my project.
