2012 Holiday Joy Campaign

The holidays are a favorite time around the GATHER camp. With the wedding season over for the year, we can put more focus on family and friends, relaxing and enjoying the magic of the season. But the GATHER girls go stir crazy without something crafty to do or make, so we came up with a fun DIY holiday card and ornament campaign that we distributed to friends, colleagues and clients.

We hand-knit the strand of twine for the card and the ornament, freehanded the “joy” lettering and glued the twine onto the card, spray painted and stuffed beautiful feathers into the glass orb and added a wooden bead to complete the look.

We spent days sending out the packages through the post office and when they arrived, our friends were kind enough to instagram/facebook a few of their gifts. We love how everyone displayed and styled their gifts![[{“type”:”media”,”view_mode”:”media_large”,”fid”:”508″,”attributes”:{“class”:”media-image aligncenter size-full wp-image-1181″,”typeof”:”foaf:Image”,”style”:””,”width”:”650″,”height”:”650″,”title”:”2abaedba4ba211e2bad822000a9f3047_7″,”alt”:””}}]][[{“type”:”media”,”view_mode”:”media_large”,”fid”:”509″,”attributes”:{“class”:”media-image aligncenter size-full wp-image-1178″,”typeof”:”foaf:Image”,”style”:””,”width”:”650″,”height”:”1142″,”title”:”GATHER-holiday-ornament-2012 v2″,”alt”:””}}]][[{“type”:”media”,”view_mode”:”media_large”,”fid”:”510″,”attributes”:{“class”:”media-image aligncenter size-full wp-image-1183″,”typeof”:”foaf:Image”,”style”:””,”width”:”650″,”height”:”650″,”title”:”16a057aa5a7711e2ab5722000a1f9684_7″,”alt”:””}}]]{Images courtesy of: Urbanic, Erin Hearts Court, Utterly Engaged, Oh Lovely Day, Caroline Tran, Jen O’Sullivan, Mae Mae Paperie}

Our aim was to make everyone’s season a little brighter and the word on the street is that we did, in fact, spread joy to many homes and hearts. Mission accomplished!!
