2011 Ornaments

Mini Mustard Seed and I have been working hard to get lots of ornaments made for the Lucketts Holiday Open House (Nov. 4, 5 and 6.)  I’ve lost count of how many we have made, but it’s certainly in the hundreds. 
 
That’s going to continue this week, but I’m also going to have to do some shopping, painting and upholstery work to get ready.  I’ve also had to do a lot of online ordering…clay tags, pillows, stockings, runners, ten pounds of glitter, ten yards of hemp fabric…  whew!  I also just spoke to a local tree farm today about getting a live tree at the end of October. They thought I was a little nutty, but they said they would give me a saw and I could take my pick. 
Here’s a sneak peek of a couple of new ornaments in the line this year… 

Of course I’ll have some of the popular ones from last year like my sheet music wreaths, pinwheel ornaments and glitter letter banners. 
 
I’m also going to write a new tutorial on how I make my paper wreaths, so be on the lookout for that soon. 
I just ordered five dozen cake bites from Snickety Snacks to have available for anyone who stops by Lucketts on Thursday while we’re painting my space.  I think Mini Mustard Seed and I can easily put away two dozen of those, so you’d better come early…
