Orders, Orders, Orders!

I have been really busy lately creating custom orders for customers. I enjoy people coming to me and creating something special for them and their family. I especially love the stories that come with each request. Thank you for letting me make your holiday special! Here are just a few examples of the custom ornaments I have made.

This ornament was made for my very first customer, Amy of Giggleberry.

This one was for a customer that wanted a present for a wedding she is attending in Dec. All of the guests are bringing ornaments to decorate a tree for the bride and groom. What a lovely idea!


This one was made for a customer that was looking for an ornament that would fit her multi cultural family. They are foster/adoptive parents who have 2 Caucasian kids, 2 Hispanic kids and 1 Native American child & wanted them all represented. I guess she searched all over last year and could not find an ornament to represent them. I was more than happy to make this for her.

This one was made for a customer who has a son who loves his Tye-Dye Chameleon stuffed animal. His parents wanted an ornament to keep as a memory from this special time in his life.

This ornament turned out beautiful, but has a sad story that goes with it. A friend of a woman who gave birth to triplets contacted me to make this one. There was a delicate issue...one of the babies was born with genetic defect called anophthalmia, and that means that when he was in utero his eyes did not develop. So, he was born without eyes and his eyelids are fused shut. She wanted me to make one of the babies look like he was sleeping. Of course as a mother my heart just broke for the mother of these beautiful babies. I had to make this for her and I am very pleased on how it turned out.

If you have a special request for an ornament please e-mail me through my blog or convo me through my etsy shop. Christmas is coming fast!
