It's always fascinating to take a behind-the-scenes look at the artists that create the handmade goods we love so much. We've been talking about holiday cards over the last several weeks and one of our favorite paper artists, Anna Bond has recently shared why she loves doing what she does. Check out the video after the jump!

Ryan Marshall of Pacing The Panic Room, has set out to record a series of videos for The Gap titled Do What You Love. (read his Big Blog Family interview with Ohdeedoh here)

He's a few videos into the series (see all 4 episodes here), and the latest is on Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. We've mentioned her work on Apartment Therapy and Ohdeedoh both, and each time we come across her adorable hand painted work we can't help but want everything we see. Make sure to check out her latest holiday collection... we'd like one of everything please!

For the last two years Anna and her husband Nathan have worked long days, weekends and seen very little downtime. They've built Rifle Paper Co. from the ground up and are looking to open a storefront and new studio in Winterpark. Buying and giving handmade for the holidays, especially when you've taken a look at the face behind the creations is a feeling second to none.

Read more on Anna and her work over at Pacing the Panic Room or catch up with her from her blog or website!
