Hello, readers of Margot's blog. Well, Margot is still here (for another 45 minutes) but she really wanted me to start blogging in her presence. Since this is, in fact, an artsy blog, I have created a stunning illustration to post here. It is the lovely holiday tree here at apartment 3E. Since most of you haven't seen our holiday tree, let me just tell you, this illustration is a 100% accurate representation of it. For more information on my artistic methods and inspiration, please feel free to comment. And no, I did not go to art school.
