I had meant to start posting ornaments from my collection, of all handmade, artist made ornaments but I have bee so sick the past week I did not even get started. So. I’ll post three today to make up for lost time and also one that I designed last year for sale in my etsy shop.
This is one available in my shop:
From my collection this one is made by artist “Dolly Gagging”
This one is by artist Diane Redmore Moore:
and this one is by artist Carla Naron:
I do so enjoy my unique ornaments!
I know, thats a bit scroogey.
Its true, that is how I feel about it. Stressed out people on busy roads and germ filled air planes, packed parking lots with peeps carrying debt ridden credit cards, does not equal joy or magic. The magic comes in January when the credit card balances jump from here to there and money needs to be pulled out of some magician’s hat, and lots of it.
We tried to keep it as low key as possible. I do like it to be fun for children.
While I don’t buy into the myth and religious aspects of the holiday I do enjoy having a tree. The smell, the nostalgia. I decorate it with art that people have given to me and that makes the tree meaningful. Its different, and has its own peculiar beauty.
On this tree see works by Lelainia Lloyd, Diane Moore, Jac Myerscho, Cynjon Noah, Jen Minnis, Horrible Sweet, Shain Erin, Cathy CUllis, Deb Galcik, Lisa Martin, Renee Troy, Shari Enge, Susan Haskell, me, Karenann Young, Carla Naron, Raven, Maripat Doyle Oberg, Junker Jane, Dollygagging, Kerry Kate and others.
Happy to say that I finished some work yesterday, will post a little later on. This is Carlos and Maria:
I’ll be out all day tomorrow, have some unavoidable business to take care of. Soon afterwards I will be going into production mode for the holidays. Need to fill my sad empty etsy shop with holiday greeting cards, ornaments, prints and giclees.
