Freshman year of college, I decided to decorate my little dorm room with Christmas lights for the holiday season. Jim proceeded to come in, grab a sticky note and write “festive” on it with a couple of arrows. He taped this note to my wall with the arrows pointing appropriately at the lights.
Jim and I had only started seeing one another a month earlier.
Six years later, we still have the sticky note.
We’ve taped a loop of ribbon to it and now it hangs from our tree each Christmas.
This note was the inspiration for one of my 2011 holiday ornament designs:
Simply designed to point out how freaking festive your tree is.
