Christmas is one of my most favorite times of the year. I love spending time with my family, watching Christmas movies and shows, putting up decorations, and many of the other holiday filled activities. This year, I was excited to be able to celebrate the holidays at work. We had an ugly sweater contest, bought and wrapped gifts for less fortunate families, decorated the laboratory, as well as several other activities. The one activity I would like to share with you guys is the ornaments I made at work. We transformed everyday laboratory items into ornaments for the Christmas tree. The two items used from the lab were a disposable transfer pipet and a petri dish. With the pipet, I made a reindeer using a few arts and crafts supplies, and painted a Christmas tree on the petri dish. I’ve posted pictures below to show you the finished products. As a precaution, I’m no Picasso with the paint brush!
I mentioned that I have been gradually doing work on and in my home in an older post. Everything has been 100% DIY. So during this process, I have been getting a few things here and there to help complete my overall goal. I am almost done with my bedroom. The theme is a mix of fashion, Parisan elements, metallics, floral prints, and vintage inspiration. It may seem a bit much but everything is simple. I found some decorative shoe boxes and other items on sale to go with my theme in my bedroom and around the house. I use the boxes to store my jewelry and other accessories. I bought these items from Dollar General and everything ranged from $.75-$3.00.
