Behind the scenes

IMG_6363

When I first started getting responses to the card swap, I had to think about what I could do this year that would be different and special from past years.  As the numbers rose well past 200, I had to think large scale since I send EVERYONE on the list a card!  I enlisted the help of the INSANELY talented Randi Brookman Harris [whose wedding and styling I have adored forever] and Jenny Ebert [a photographer I adore!] to help me set up a card shoot that could double as a gift.  Randi mixed in some stuff I owned with her own to create this gorgeous backdrop, and her dog Olive ended up getting into the holiday spirit as well!   I’ll leave you this holiday season with some outtakes from the shoot….thank you Randi and Jenny for helping me with this!  You’re both amazing amazing amazing!!

I’ll see you all back here in 2010…have a wonderful holiday filled with love and laughter!

Memory cloth

livingetc craft

I saw this project in October’s Living Etc and thought it would make a great keepsake for engaged couples…it would probably be more manageable for a bridal shower, where guests could share their words of wisdom.
