Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

"Enchanted Forest" tree

For the past three years at work, our team, along with about 8 other teams, have done Christmas trees that sits in the central atrium.  It's a bit of a competition and has become a new tradition. 

For our team the past two years, I've been "chief tree designer".  Last year, our theme was "Peace" and we did our tree in red, silver, and white, with lots of doves and folded origami cranes.  I liked it a lot.

This year, our theme was "Enchanted Forest".  I put my papercraft skills to work on the poster, and our tree was full of both woodland and magical animals, complemented by a purple and blue color scheme.  Aren't the twig backdrops that another team member made great?  We were really happy with it. 

Oh, and I think the people the most worried about my retiring might be the Christmas Tree Team.  The heck with the real job!
