Bon Voyage, Mon Ami and Reflections on a Secret Self
A co-worker of mine just left for greener pastures, and I wanted to get her a little goodbye gift. I put together this arrangement of colorful office supplies in eye-catching graphics to brighten up her new desk.
I found everything at Michaels. I think I’m going to have to confess something, dear reader. I never thought I was one of those crafty-type ladies who hangs out at Michaels, but it would appear from several blog posts, that I just might be. I’m still grappling with this revelation. You see, my blog is where a very specific side of me comes out. I call it the Pinterest Me, something like the softer side of Vim. Sure, by day I’m a marketing professional, negotiating ROI, and by night I’m an actor and producer of ground-breaking theatre. But sometimes I just like to wander around Michaels and imagine themed gift baskets...ponder faux-floral arrangements…or maybe bake a cake shaped like an alligator for a friend's birthday… or make my own Christmas wreath… or make 12 Christmas wreaths as presents (note: people are not as jazzed to receive a wreath as you might think)…or decide I’m going to crochet an afghan for the 3rd time before I remember, again, that I always get too bored to even finish a scarf. And I guess that’s okay too.
