* Note ~ You may be wondering why there are numerous photos from Alcatraz and Pier 39. These
photos are from my
Shalondra's Travels story featured on my site. I needed many shots around
Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, and Alcatraz to tell my story with and decided to post the photos from
my many trips there.

Here are some pictures of trees I decorated for Macy's Department Stores. I was known
as a Christmas Coordinator. I had twelve Macy's stores' Christmas departments to look
after this season, including three stores in Las Vegas and one in Reno. I initially did not
decorate the Christmas trees. I helped the tree trimmers trim the trees by getting product
ready to be hung, and helped the trimmers get whatever they needed to make sure a tree
is done properly. After all the trees were trimmed, it was my job to keep the look of the
tree up. So since Macy's customers shop from the Christmas trees, I had to redo trees
(over and over again), adding ornaments, and props to keep the trees looking full. After a
couple weeks of looking after the trees, I started improvising and creating a new look for
the trees, adding more flare, and most importantly, my style to the trees. I took these
images with my cellphone (sorry for the poor quality of the pictures).

Featured here are pictures of the first Christmas Tree I have ever done at home. The look
and feel of the tree came about from visualizing what colors and type of florals, ribbons,
and ornaments I could combine to create a visually creative and "well-put" together look. I
call this tree theme,
Touched By A Butterfly.
(I guess decorating trees since August really paid off...).
