HOLIDAY FAVES LOVE | dreamy diys + pretty printables + awe-inspiring images | Heavenly Holiday Decor + Gift Packaging Perfection = My Happiness

There are lots of reasons why the holidays are one of my favorite times of the year, but ranking high among them are the following two:

~ dreamy and delightful holiday decor

~ pretty packaging perfection by incredibly creative crafters

Combine those two with my absolute favorite thing in general and of all time – photography – and you get marvelous, breathtakingly beautiful things… wondrous things that never cease to amaze me, no matter how many times or however long I stare at them.  Here are several examples of that magic, created by some of the greatest triple threats around.  Click on the links announcing each set to visit each artist’s space on the web (Flickr pages or personal weblogs).
