Now that Christmas is over, I want to share two more PhD ornaments that I made this holiday season– these ones are particularly special to me, because I gave them as gifts.
Finally, finally, my own Christmas tree will have a PhD ornament hanging from it! I made a University of Illinois ornament for Husband. (He and I were both hooded at the Spring 2010 commencement.) Ever since I started making ornaments for my Etsy shop, Husband has been mentioning that we should have one on our own tree. So here it is!
I also made an ornament for my Dad– he graduated with his PhD in electrical engineering from Drexel in 19…(he might not like it if I shared the year here, haha!). It is largely because of his example that I got my PhD, and so I hope that he’ll enjoy having an ornament of his own. I think that he might keep it on his desk year-round hanging from an ornament stand! 🙂
