I'd love to post pictures of what I've put together as of thus far, but unfortunately I can't. I can tell you that I was doing various things for the project while I was at work earlier and both "Emily" & my Department Head thought what I had done so far was cute.
"Emily" was kind of a downer though when I was telling her about the whole thing. She was all "Remember, not everyone is as thoughtful and generous as you, so don't be surprised if you get old shoelaces from whoever gets you..." It was so mean. Whomever has me, I have faith in you and I'm sure whatever you send will be amazing. I say boo to naysayers!
I look forward to finishing up and sending my person their box and I can't wait to get mine!
