Ornaments Notes:

These 12 ornaments were created as goodbye gifts for the wonderful colleagues with whom I worked at Cabrillo College‘s Extension department in Aptos, California. They included little “quote” cards that were chosen especially for each individual, based on either their job, or, something personal about them. I left my job at Cabrillo to move to Mariposa, CA in November of 2019, where I was then able to experimentally work remotely. Shortly thereafter, everyone worked remotely due to the COVID pandemic!
