Keepsake Artist Terri Steiger’s new series “Noble Nutcrackers” debuts in 2019—perfect for nutcracker fans of all ages. What many ornament enthusiasts don’t realize is that months of work go in to creating a new series fans will love. Not only do artists come up with the idea for the first in series, they also gather inspiration and sometimes even sketch ideas for several ornaments to come in the series—making sure each ornament will surprise and delight fans long term.

“I like to start with gathering things for inspiration,” says Terri. “In this case, that meant looking at lots of different materials and colors when I was starting to sketch.”

Terri shared pictures of her storyboard for the series, where you’ll see inspiration for this year’s first in series “Prince of the Forest,” and maybe even a sneak peek or two of what’s to come later in the series!
