|Check out the other free gift ornament I'm giving away for the month of December! Isn't it so pretty?|
By the time you read this, I will have gotten far less sleep than I probably should have this past weekend. But I can hardly complain because this weekend I got so many things accomplished and I also was able to prepare so many orders that have been coming through my etsy shop. :)
Hard to believe that it really is December and I'm only two months away from my first year anniversary of having my etsy shop open. I've learned so much about how to run my little business and though I haven't made a super ton of money... well, I always knew that I wouldn't be rich doing it. *shrug* And honestly? It brings me great joy to put in good work to bring you things that help bring you a little bit of sunshine in your days (and with your dolls). *wink* I always have felt like giving is way more fun than getting so the extra hours and extra effort that I put in is something that I feel like is a gift in and of itself. I'm very thankful to have work to do and I'm very thankful to have customers who keep coming back to visit my shop and check out the new things that I put in it.
Speaking of new things, I decided to design a few pretty Christmas tree ornaments...
|Ramsey Rae is sharing a very pretty camera ornament. She loves how it sparkles!|
|Jillian LOVES this silver-toned ornament that's kind of like a Christmas flower almost.|
One of my favorite things in the world is to collect AND share Christmas ornaments with others. It's so fun when I go traveling to look for something that will be a Christmas ornament because then when I go to hang it on the tree at the end of the year, I can remember back on the fun that I had earlier in the year. I don't think that people enjoy ornaments nearly as much as they ought to so? I'm all about helping to raise the awareness of the awesome of Christmas ornaments. *high five*
I'm going to have a very limited amount of ornaments available in my etsy shop this year just to try them out and see if people like them. I will (of course) be giving two different kinds as *free* gifts with every order that is placed but then I will have just a few other ones that are pretty nice as well. You can think of them as "limited editions" since I won't have very many and I might not do ornaments again next year - especially if it doesn't work out so well this year. Something else? I'm also going to have ONE extra something for your Christmas tree...
Can you tell what it is? I'll give you two hints - 1) it's something that can be worn (but not by you) and 2) it's something that you could otherwise create beautiful artwork with (if it were real and not made of fabric as it is). Give up? Here's the answer: It's a mini Christmas tree skirt!!
I made designed and made it for my own Christmas tree but then I had extra material left so I decided to make an extra one and I'm going to be putting it in my etsy shop so if you're an artist like me? You can have a fun and cute painting palette as your Christmas tree skirt. So neat!
Anyway, thanks again for all of the orders that you are placing with my etsy shop! I so appreciate your support of my little business and I'm thankful that you like the things that I work so hard to design and create. Hope you have had a happy Monday!
