Thanks for popping in.
We had a super surprise today. Jayne had set up a lovely Secret Santa for the whole team!
See all the snowflake dangles?
Well, at the end of each dangle was a little tag,
and on each tag was a scratch card thingy.
So each person picked a dangle,
and then Jayne cut it off and gave you your chosen tag.
You scratched to reveal the name of one of your colleagues,
and that is the person you are getting a Christmas treat for.
Izzy getting hers….
Jeannine picking one….
And the snowflakes? Well, upon closer inspection,
they are stencils!!!!
Jayne got Claire, Jim’s Mammy, to make them out of some stencil material that was at the centre of the core, so had a bit of a curl on it and was scrap really. Blimming perfect !!!!
I went straight to Claire afterwards and got her to make me a batch for my new Porsche! I think we could sell these easily, don’t you?!?
Ironically, we had the snowflake designs from a couple of years ago, when we laser cut them out of MDF for a lovely lady who was assigned the task of decorating a Christmas Tree for CF. Cystic Fibrosis. She had lost not one but two sons to that illness.
So it was our privilege, (Jim did most of the work), to make a whole set of CF Logo baubles for her. I’m told she uses them happily every Christmas now. Isn’t that neat?
The CF Charity do this to raise funds and awareness.
Yes. There you see. Reasons to be grateful abound.
Even the table confetti at our little Secret Santa party was tiny snowflake stencils!
The benefits of working in a stencil making establishment, eh!
It was brilliant!
Didn’t Jayne do well ?!?
Best events Social Events Manager in the world!
You can always rely on Jayne to get a party going!
And then we threw the diet out of the window
and hoovered up the cheese and biscuits!
All in all, a very pleasant hour.
Broke up the day’s activities perfectly.
We should have a little cheese and biscuits intermezzo more often.
Love & Hugs,
