Friday, the most
lip curling prestigious honor was bestowed upon me by my boss. I was assigned to decorate stockings for our department unit of 13. As you may have already concluded, I don’t just “decorate.” I embellish, garnish, adorn, jazz up, festoon and beautify; obviously he had no idea what he was asking of me because this won’t just be glitter and felt. I then, in turn, drafted another unsuspecting willing coworker to help.
I don’t know if I am confident enough in our abilities to actually post “before and afters” of our stockings. I mean, we’re dressing-up 13 stockings in 4 hours; I guarantee they all won’t be worthy of a Smithsonian exhibit. But I may as well be thoughtful enough to post some of the *inspiration* for my designs. (You know, just in case your boss decides to give you the same assignment…)
