Default In honor of Valentine's Day...

Yippee! The place I work is having a "Red Food Day" in honor of Valentine's Day. We get to bring in all kinds of stuff to eat (it has to be RED) and eat all day long.
They also want everyone to decorate a shoebox and pass out Valentines, just like when we were kids! But... the girls in my office said I can't win the prize for best decorated 'cause it wouldn't be fair to everyone else, since I'm so creative and all. Don't they understand that I just CASE everything I make, so I'm not really all that creative at all?!
I was excited at first, but now I'm kinda bummed. I don't want to make everyone else look bad. Should I go all out anyway, because that will make me happiest, or should I restrain myself?

you could invite the girls over and make it a decorating party, and who knows you might get them into stamping too

Make the bestest possible box you can!!!

I like the idea of inviting the girls over to do their own and maybe getting a customer or two That might put you in the running for the prize again too.

What a compliment to know they all are so impressed with your cards! I say go all out and do something really special for everyone even though you're not in the running for the contest - they all seem to know yours will be the best anyway!
