Every year, we at Fusion do a handmade and/or locally purchased Secret Santa gift exchange. Now let's be honest, the graphic designers at the agency are darn good at this task! In previous year's, I've bought my gift but they keep raising the bar, so I decided to make mine! I had seen something very cool on Etsy and decided to try my hand....here are the results.
It's a silhouette of my co-worker Flo's American Eskimo Max carved out of scrapbook paper (with an exacto knife) then paired with a map page from a vintage altlas behind it. I must say, I'm pretty pleased with myself and she seemed to like it too! I also present my very simple, very short (ran out of yarn at the last minute!) garter scarf I also gave her. Good thing she's petite!
What did I get you ask? Well one of our designers Morris created me the most amazing original graphic print incorporating mine and Morris's favourite footwear - the Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars...how cool is that? It's going to look fabulous hanging in my office!
And as if that weren't enough, he threw in a gift card to my favourite local bake shop, Baked Expectations. They make cheesecakes that are to die for! I can't wait to go for some sweet treats. Thanks Morris!!
Do you do any kind of fun, special gift exchange with your friends, family or co-workers? I'd love to hear about it!
Stay warm friends!
