    Congrats Kendall!! Feel free to decorate for our department’s christmas party on Thursday… I think we have a tad less to work with though.. like, some white paper plates and some papertowels, but I am sure you can make it into something fabulous! Great job!!

  7. Congratulations Kendall, TDL and Erin! You all are so creative, I was blown away! There were so many amazing entries, but you three certainly stood out….your submissions were not only beautiful, but also very “do-able”, which is so important. Sometimes we tend to overcomplicate things and think we’re not clever enough, but your ideas prove just how simple creativity can be! I cannot WAIT to use some of your inspiration in my own events this year. You each totally deserve your winnings! Thanks for sharing.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!
