A few months ago I received a call from the editor of The Golden Isles Magazine. She asked if I was interested in doing a DIY holiday place settings article for their fall/winter issue. Might sound like an odd request given my profession at first, but in my mind, I thought…”YAASSSS!” before she even finished her sentence. Within an hour I had three ideas ready to go. Honestly, I kind of thought she may think I was crazy because called her back immediately but I went for it. Good news, she didn’t run, and we were both on the same page! My mind works quickly, and most of the time the first ideas are my best ideas so, it’s a blessing and a curse.
A week later, Irma came. A hurricane of any magnitude throws your entire life off course, it can often take weeks or months to get life back on track. Small businesses suffer, families struggle but a magical thing also happens, we all forget our differences and help each other. It’s the silver lining if you can possibly call it that.
Once life returned to somewhat normal, we revisited the article idea and arranged for a photoshoot. What a great experience to see this side of the process. I am so happy to share the free holiday printables I designed for the project with you.
