Once Upon Christmas - Red Novelty Christmas Tree

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