My Office & Matchbox #13

My co-workers and I are blessed to have a boss who likes Christmas.  He loves what we do to the office each year!  We put up a tree and a snowman, play Christmas music and decorate our own spaces.  It's a small office but we try to make it very festive.  Here's a peek at some of our decorations.


The snowman light, bears and squirrel are all part of my desk decorations.  I think squirrels are so cute. I love to watch them and I love to discuss the "sweetness that is a squirrel" with my boss.  He's not very fond of you can imagine how those conversations might be.  I decided that he needed a squirrel of his very he could really see just how cute they are.  So for one of his Christmas gifts I asked Michelle Palmer to draw a squirrel for him.  Here's what she came up with!

I framed her drawing and added a little definition inside the frame.  I asked her to personalize it and she put his name on a little tag.  I just love it!  I think he liked it too!  Michelle has an Etsy shop where you can find many more of her wonderful drawings.

I must admit that Geoff doesn't love EVERYTHING we do to the office.  I'm sure he wishes we'd leave "Hank" the deer alone.

Matchbox #13

Matchbox #13 comes from Sherry of If I Could Set My Soul Free.  Itr's so festive and bright.  I love the paper Sherry used to cover and line the box and I really love the tiny tree garland she tucked inside.  It will be perfect to wrap around a tiny tree that I have! Thank you Sherry ~ this one is so cute!
