Go the extra step in personalizing your gift wrap this year with photo gift tags.

My soon to be three year old just learned how to sing Jingle Bells, and I'm pretty sure it's his new favorite song.  Fortunately my whole family is crazy about the holidays, so we've all been jamming out to our favorite songs lately.  We're totally in the holiday spirit with putting up the trees (I think we'll end up with 4 this year), baking cookies, making some diy decor, and wrapping presents.

I love how my boys act on the morning after Santa visits.  Of course they are super excited about opening their presents, but they are just as excited to hand out presents to others.  Since my youngest doesn't read yet, I wanted an easy way for him to identify who the gifts are for with photo gift tags.

So, this was originally for his benefit, but I'm so happy with how the gift wrap ended up looking.  I like for our presents under the tree to be part of the decor.

For these gift tags, you just need a way to print out your pictures, and a camera to capture the image.  I just got the new Samsung Galaxy Note8 and the camera features are outstanding!

Here is how the photo I used for the boys' joint gift looked before and after editing it straight on the phone.

Love it!  I take a ridiculous amount of pictures, and I sometimes haul around my big camera if I want pictures for scrapbooking.  But that's super inconvenient especially if I want to actually enjoy our outing.  And then I have to go through the hastle of uploading all of those photos to my computer and then editing them in a software program.  So, I'm really excited about how amazing the camera is on my new Samsung Galaxy Note8.  It has a low light dual pixel camera, so I can take awesome pictures, even when the lighting is not ideal.  And it has 4K video so I can capture all of those precious holiday memories.

 Anyhoo, for the "gift tags" I simply just printed out the pictures directly from my phone and attached them to the gift wrap with double sided tape.  See?  I told you they were easy!

I'm hosting the major holiday dinners this year, and will throw at least one holiday party for our friends.  Within the span of 4 weeks starting in mid November, my hubby, his brother, my mother in law, my mom, and both of my little boys all have birthdays.  This year the boys want a shark birthday party.  Too bad we didn't decide on this theme earlier - it's much more difficult to get cool "under the sea" party stuff in December..... there's a lot of party planning going on.   Annnnd my oldest son is playing in an indoor soccer league and having to go to football practice.

All this is in addition to life's usual craziness.  I know you're busy too, so another reason I'm stoked about the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is how easy it is to stay organized.  With the S-pen I can jot down notes including drawing out how I want my holiday decor to look like.  I can make all kinds of lists, and have my schedule all in one place. 

Since my husband's birthday was just a few days ago, I surprised him with a new Samsung Galaxy S8.  He loved it!
