EVENT RECAP

DINNER

The Dinner with the Hallmark Artists was just terrific! Tammy and Jake were both funny and engaging as they talked about their work as ornament designers, how they come up with ideas, their first ornaments, and so much else. A number of really neat gift baskets and other prizes (including some very nice jewelry, plus a stay at the Marriott) were raffled off, and there were some very pleased winners. A great time was had by all.


SNEAK PEEK

Jake and Tammy each showed a picture of one of their favorite 2014 Keepsake ornaments while giving a personal insight into their respective designs.

Jake showed "I Want You to Want Me" and said, "as a newer artist it was one of my first ornaments that brought out my style."

Tammy showed "Snip 'N' Clip Fun", 7th in the Making Memories series. She went on to say she liked it because it reminded her of making paper snowflakes with her kids. As an interesting side note, she commented about making life-sized paper snowflakes and snowmen in order to get the scale right.

In addition to sharing pictures of their favorite 2014 ornaments, each artist also gave a Sneak Peek of one of the designs they created for the 2015 Keepsake ornament line and answered questions for approximately 30 minutes.

One piece of trivia that was revealed during the Q & A session was that this year's "Sugar, Sugar" ornament was supposed to play "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard. As a result of not being able to obtain the rights to use this song, Hallmark had to change the music to "Sugar, Sugar."
