Workplace Crafting

Yesterday I had it in my head that I was going to do some Christmas deocorating at work. In the morning I made the paper chain garland to decorate the circulation desk.



In the afternoon, I managed to bully two teenage boys into helping make a paper version of these adorable trees. When they asked how many I wanted and I said "a forest" they both rolled their eyes. I laughed. By the end of our tree-making session, they wanted to make more. They carefully arranged the trees in clumps on the desk for me and even taped them down so that nobody would steal them. It was amazing.

Oh I love it when teenage boys remember that it's ok to be kids and enjoy stuff like making trees and paper chains!
