Once Upon Christmas - Evergreen Peppermint Stick Stripes **PRE-ODER**
**PRE-ORDER** Estimated Arrival May 2024 I've always wanted to design a Christmas line...but was so intimidated. Â I mean, it's Christmas! Â It comes laden with joy and tradition...memories and a little mayhem. Â It means so much to so many. Â Designing a Christmas line was to me like going to the Superbowl. Â So, when Moda asked if I'd be interested in tackling this holiday collection, I cried. Â I was so excited and so overwhelmed with wanting to make the line in my look and feelÂ ...while at the same time honoring the expectations folks would have for what a Christmas line should look like. Â I set to work...Â And I tried to focus on the sights of the season for my inspiration. Â But, guess what? Â It was the fragrances of the season that kept sneaking in to my imagination and inspiring me. Â Peppermint sticks, freshly baked sugar cookies (with sprinkles!), Evergreen boughs and the scent of snow before a storm danced in my head. Â And Once Upon a Christmas was born. Â I designed it in hues that remind me of happy childhood memories... Crisp evergreen, Christmas red and a delicious candy pink. Â My sweet Sammy approached me when I was nearly done designing and said, "Mom... You really need to add Santa Claus." Â So, I did. Â Just for him. Â I designed my pattern "Baubles on Branches" to feature a vintage glass Santa Claus as well as a host of other heirloom ornaments.
