Having a Ball

This past July, a photo stylist for Nordstrom found me on the interwebs, and asked if I might be available and interested in making some paper crafts/props for their holiday catalog. I love projects like this, so I happily said yes.

He requested a serious of several styles and colors of paper garlands. ornaments, and stars, and I went right to work creating samples. Once he approved the designs and paper selections, I tucked myself into my studio, and didn't leave until all the pieces were done, and ready to be packed and shipped.

Here are a few of the completed garlands.


And here are a few of the single ornaments.



Shipping paper crafts can be challenging, but these guys nested together nicely, and arrived safely at the photo studios in Seattle and NYC.


Earlier in the month while doing some holiday  shopping at Nordstrom, I picked up a catalog. It was such a thrill to see my crafts sprinkled throughout the book!


Shorty after the catalog was out, a writer from the Nordstrom blog contacted me to do a piece on the crafts included in the catalog.  You can find the story HERE,  along with instructions on how to make your own ball garland.



Thanks so much for the support and exposure, my Nordstrom friends!  I had a "ball" working on this project!
