The Emmys Are Almost Upon Us

It is hard to believe that The Emmy Awards are right around the corner. So much hard work and preparation is coming to a close. Not only have I been preparing for the gift bags but I have also been hard at work with Valerie from the Beez Kneez on our group The Artisan Group and getting ready to launch my Etsy shop in the very near future.

The Artisan Group if you have do not know is a creative group of very talented artists that all pull together to exhibit at some of the top Hollywood Gift Lounges, not only will we be appearing at the Emmys but also at the Golden Globes and The Oscars of 2012. I could not be happier and more excited.

I wanted to do something a little different besides tile necklaces. I decided to really change things and head full steam into a new direction and soon all those wonderful things will be available for you to have as well.

The gift I will be giving will be a hand-covered frame with a hand-formed poppy flower and a brand new illustration from me. Of course it will be listed in Zazzle as soon as the boxes are packed and the frames are on their way to California. If someone perhaps does not like the illustration they can always change it out for a photo of someone they love. I wanted to do something useful and pretty, hopefully I achieved that.

Close-up of the flowers that will adorn the frames. All hand-formed and punched out of acid-free paper

The assembly line, well part of it, there were a LOT more petals to assemble!

The final frame before adding the illustration. This is the display piece going on the table.

All tucked away, waiting for a ribbon and a seal

Little tokens to hand out to the press and any of the children that acompany the celebrities

I am so excited for this show, more than any I have done before and just wait to see what I have in store for the next show! I already have the supplies.


  1. Congrats Nikki! It looks amazing! Love the paper flowers on the frame, very nice touch :)

  2. Aww thank you, next thing I will have to save up for is a new camera so they will look even better!
