Photo Collection (Christmas)

This year, I decided to make Christmas cards for my friends and coworkers. I have made cards in the past for general note-sending, so I have a collection of card stock and pages ripped from magazines, IKEA catalogs, and old textbooks from the ’80s. It was a creative, personal, and cost-effective way to send holiday greetings. Auntie Anne’s thought it was a great idea when I tweeted about it, so they are sending me pretzel buttons and stickers for future card-making!

This collection features photos as the front of the card.

Presidential Scarf

Presidential Scarf Proposal Sketch, 2009

Messiah College’s President Kim Phipps commissioned the Textiles Surface Design class to create designs that the class would hand-paint onto silk scarves. These scarves would then be presented as gifts to the women of the Board of Trustees as part of the College’s Centennial Celebration. This design was one of five chosen by President Phipps, who personally requested this design be used for 7 of 25 scarves.
