New Holiday Tree Ornaments Have Been Added to My Shop!

Holiday decorating is in full swing here in my house and studio. It's so much fun every year to bring out the boxes and bins full of stuff to look at and put up around the house. It's my kid's favorite thing to do this time of year. 

I've been busy creating new ornaments for my shop. Lots of snowmen, owls, ceramic and pretty charm accessorized artistic and unique pieces. I like to have a lot of different designs available for a wide selection.

Check out all my ornaments here.

New to my online Christmas shop today were these little hand painted ceramic Christmas ornaments featuring Santa Claus, Helper Elfie and Frosty the Snowman. I hand painted these cuties and used a lot of details to make them unique and eye catching for your tree. They pretty much sold as soon as I posted them available in my shop and I'm thrilled that they'll be decorating a tree of a nice family here in New England! 

If you're looking for more ornaments or something specific, please let me know and I'll be happy to work with you on your customized Christmas project!

Hand painting these sugar skull rocks was a lot of fun this weekend! I love how colorful and bright Calaveras (Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls) are. Our family really adores these decorations and have quite a bevy of them around our house this time of year. They're eye-catching, bright, whimsical and wonky! Right up our alley!

How To Create a Mixed Media Christmas Holiday Planner from a Few Simple Supplies!

How To Create a Mixed Media Christmas Holiday Planner from a Few Simple Supplies!

I'm always a hot mess when it comes to getting my holiday plans in order. From kids parties and events to family parties and gift giving, I always feel completely disorganized and not at all ready once the holidays begin. 

Each year, with the best intentions, I start my shopping early to avoid crowds and stress. But a lot of the time, as Christmas draws near, I forget somebody or can't remember what I purchased for someone else. I'veused apps on my phone each year and, while some of them are decent, I either tend to forget to upload the stuff OR (more commonly) I spend an unnecessary amount of time on said app taking photos of whatever I purchased. Well, this year I'm making a change!

I went out last week and started my shopping. Got home and decided I was going to make a "Holiday Command Center" out of a file folder, some holiday paper scraps and a few other materials that I had in my stash. 

The result was this fun little 4 pocket planner that fits perfectly in my purse and I can bring it out while I'm shopping to write down ideas or items that I purchase so I don't get all flustered after the fact! It's turning out to be a great little addition to my Christmas shopping process and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

Using various types of mixed media materials, such as paint, paper, washi tape, rubber stamps, pen, pencil and ribbon, I created this pocket planner in about an hour or so with what I had in my stash.

If you decide you want to do this too, share how yours turned out! I'd love to see!
