Aspire To Inspire

A CHRISTMAS TREE OF MEMORIES

I’m sure most of you have the same thoughts as I do…”How is it Christmas already????”.  The year sure did fly by fast and included so many great times and inspiring work, I am so grateful for 2012 and all that it brought!

My mom came to spend Christmas with me in Los Angeles this year and we started our holiday time with a special get together including my closest friends, the ones I have shared so many great memories with this year.  We wanted to get a Christmas tree and since I didn’t have any ornaments, I came up with a creative idea to decorate the tree with photographs.  I have so many great photos of all the great times we have shared together so I decided to have us create ornaments out of my favorite memories of the past year.  I printed all my favorites out and had them for people to choose from to make their contribution to the tree.  The process was simple and you can see all the steps to creating these photo ornaments here.  It was a fun and festive night that got everyone in the Christmas spirit before heading out of town to be with their families for the holiday.  Take a look at some of the photos from the night below.

This is Emily’s ornament, a fun memory from our trip to Santa Fe this year for the Folk Art Festival.

On the back there was a space to write a note about that special memory and a notation to 2012.

Lots of glueing :)

My crew loves a good craft project and this time was no different.  It was really fun seeing everybody choose their photo and reminisce about that particular memory.  We’ve had so many good times together this year and documenting it was really special.

Thanks to Justin Paul and my mom for the photos and thanks to all my friends and family for a wonderful year! Next year will bring a lot of new changes for me and The Sche Report and I’m very excited to share them with you.  First up, a new overhall to my branding and logo and a new look for The Sche Report and my website! I’m very excited for this to FINALLY happen and even more excited that my dear friend at CDR will be pulling it together for me!

Wishing you all a very happy holiday and a merry and bright new year in 2013! Thank you for reading and for continuing to be interested in my life throughout the past year.  I promise to continue to inspire you in every way possible in the coming year.  Happy Holidays!!!!
