The painting on your red-nosed Christmas creatures is amazing!
With that talent, you should become an artist! ;-)
They┬┤re absolutely ADORABLE!
And incredibly well painted.


Yes! Got one! Waited up last night and was praying there would still be some this morning. I look forward to your ornaments every year (I was afraid you might not have time to make them, with the big move and all). I have been lucky enough to get one since 2008, and I love them all. The owl hangs on my key hook right by the door and we see him all the time. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your work, and the stairs... simply put, make me drool. They are awesome!!!! THANK YOU!

YaY!!! I waited up last night and got one before I went to bed! As in the past years (I have each of them)....you did not disappoint!! I love, LOVE each one of them. Thank you, Michelle!


Thanks for sharing the link to the 2008 snowman (my favorite!). It's fun to see your process for creating ornaments. The instructions are easy for me to follow & inspire me to start a new tradition creating annual ornaments to give as gifts!


What cuties! Man, I love your use of color. I want some of that......
