Each year, my husband and I give each other an ornament. This year it was so fun to open up our decorations box and see all the special ornaments from years past. I have been searching starting before Halloween and could not find what I wanted. Then a few days ago I was wandering around Michael's and saw these paper mache boxes. DING DING. The light went off in my head and I knew what I would do.
I covered the box in festive paper, slathered everything in Mod Modge and pieced together a poinsettia to go on top. The tag says, "Nine Memories from 2009."
I wrote down nine of the biggest events of the year, rolled up each memory and put them inside the box.
