Dear Shayne,

I often get to be creative at work (which is a big part of why I love my job) but not always "crafty." Today, I got to do a craft project at work! Yeah!

We're doing a flash-back to grade school and we made Valentine "mailboxes" for everyone in the office (all 95 people!) Here's the wall o' mailboxes (they're really 6x9 inch envelopes):

I punched out hearts from scrapbook paper to decorate each envelope. I glued each one on with a glue stick -- boy did I long for my Xyron sticker maker right then.

I hope this one gets lots of notes:

Now I get to make valentines to go in all of those mailboxes!


PS -- I wrote this post on Friday, but then blogger would not let me publish it. So I am leaving Friday's date on here. Yeah!

That's so great! But will you enforce the the elementary school valentine's rules: bring one for everyone or don't bring them at all?

Little D and I started to make his valentines today---I think we're going to make stickers of his face again. He looks pretty much the same, so why not?

We're not enforcing the "bring one for everyone" rule... there's a core group of us that will certainly bring one for everyone. So at least we'll know everyone got a few. :)

Meanwhile, one person has already told me they're having bad "flashbacks" (of empty Valentine's Day mailboxes as a child), so this could result in some therapy. Whee!

Awww, this looks awesome! Isn't it great when you get to be crafty at work? I loved it when I worked in the children's department at the bookstore. I'd get to plan the story times and crafts to go with the themes.

Meanwhile (if I may be so bold as to comment on my own post...) these photos are cracking me up! It really *does* look like a grade school hallway. HAHAHA.

Well, I have to be crafty at work (ahem---bulletin boards) and I *freaking* hate it! Maybe I can draft you into bulletin board decor?!

kelly said...

Duuude... I would love that! Tell me how big your board is and I'll send you a "kit" -- all the ingredients and a diagram too!

What kind of topics do we need to cover?
