The cactus Christmas tree from my desk at work. This is the cactus that I have been plant-sitting during the past several summers while the teachers are not at school. It now has become a permanent fixture on my desk just below the counter. I decided to decorate it for Christmas this year. I strung some jingle bells on white cord and wrapped that around it. Then I got some pompoms and taped them to the cactus. Lastly, I created an origami star for the top which was placed there using a coiled pipe cleaner.
One of this year's Christmas cards. I asked for a bicycle and then rethought that. It will be better to get the bike in the spring when I can try it out. I was thrilled when I found this stamp. It was colored with markers and shimmer paint with a little white gel pen thrown in.
This was one of the treats from a classroom party at school that they shared with us in the office. The ornament cookie on top has a clear candy center. The white icing was also sugared. What a sweet treat!
May the sweetness of the season fill you with joy. Merry Christmas!
