A colleague of ours was turning 60. The special ed department was charged with giving her 60 items or a really tacky gift. I inherited the materials and room of a hoarder this year. We have about 1000 paperclips (I kid you not.) My assistant and I decided we should make her something out of 60 paperclips. I scooped up about a hundred to take home. Flash forward to the night before the big day. At 9:00 pm, Thrift Chick reminds me we need to get the present ready. I was too
A little hot glue, buttons from the button tin and a small vase and we were done. We both looked at each other and laughed. It wasn't tacky. It wasn't ugly. It was ...cute. It even had 60 paperclips.
Don't you just love surprsies!
