I planned an art project for our group of 3 employees. Our department was divided into 9 groups and given a garland to decorate. We did this last winter holiday season, also, and enjoyed it so much we are doing it again this year.
Each group was given a 9 foot garland to put on a ledge in our office. We were allowed to spend some "company time" planning and decorating. (My daughter cannot believe we get paid to do these "projects" but I think it is an exercise in cooperation and competitive spirit...there is a panel of judges who will pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners with some small token prize. Last year my group won 2nd place but the judges succombed to bribery (they were offered cookies to eat when they were judging the 1st place winners.
We might get 2nd place again but it still was fun to plan and decorate our pine garlands.
We are the only group who has lights (battery operated), music (a music box playing Oh
Tannenbaum) and a wonderful aroma (the smell of gingerbread cookies since there are real gingerbread cookies strung together). I will take a picture...I am proud of the group effort!!! (I have to admit I MAY have gotten a bit carried away....)
