holiday ornaments collection

i'm starting a new collection on Etsy!
i was inspired by a project sort of commissioned to me by one of my co-designers.
i've just noticed how popular birds and animals are right now.
so i thought i would participate a bit.
see what kind of reaction this received.

bird ornaments!
i'm also going to make earrings and brooches to add to my autumn and winter collections.
this one i just listed on Etsy today, and i hope to be listing many more by the end of the weekend!

i'll be sure to bring some home for the holidays! since i was very young, my brother and i have been receiving ornaments at Christmas time. every year it was something new. most of the time we got to pick out our own, but sometimes it was a surprise to open. i think the worst year was when our tree fell, and my favorite ornament broke. the crystal ballerina. RIP.

i was walking through the craft store this morning, looking for some supplies, and yes. believe it. Christmas music was playing overhead. before i even realized it, i was humming along. i figured it was a good time to start selling holiday decorations.

and please check out this Etsy treasury! my brooch is again featured!

Oooo! Sounds great! I collect unique, one-of-a-kind Christmas ornaments. Chris even bought me a pink Christmas tree this year! Very 1950s! Can't wait to decorate it. I love the red winged blackbird ornament.

Yaaaay! I just bought that exact ornament, Lesley! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted it for our Christmas tree this year. I'm so tickled and can hardly wait to show Donica! :)

I couldn't pull up your brooch... what is your seller name so I can look you up on etsy?

Maybe you could write an illustrated book on how to make things- you are very good at doing it on your blog.

That would make a nice Christmas present.
